Former CDC Director, Robert Redfield, made claims in his testimony before the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic regarding the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China.
Redfield stated that in September 2019, the lab deleted sequences, changed control from civilian to military, and had a contractor redo the ventilation system. He suggested that these actions pointed towards a significant event having occurred in the lab at that time.
Redfield also accused Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top immunologist, of silencing those who questioned the origin of SARS-CoV-2. In contrast, Fauci had previously stated that the virus appeared to have naturally mutated from animals to humans.
Dr. Robert Redfield, the former CDC Director, talks about three suspicious events that took place at the Wuhan lab in September 2019:

However, recent emails obtained by House Republicans revealed that Fauci had prompted a study to disprove the lab-leak theory. The study was later approved by him before being published in Nature Medicine.
During the House Select Subcommittee, Redfield claimed that Fauci intentionally excluded him from conversations because he refused to fall in line with the chosen narrative.
Redfield said, “This was an a priori decision that there’s one point of view that we’re going to put out there, and anyone who doesn’t agree with it is going to be sidelined. And as I say, I was only the CDC director, and I was sidelined.”
The claims made by Redfield and the revelations from the emails have added fuel to the ongoing debate about the origins of SARS-CoV-2.
While Fauci had previously stated that the virus appeared to have a natural origin, the emails suggest that he was also actively seeking to disprove the lab-leak theory. The matter remains under investigation.
