REVEALED: US is collaborating with Chinese scientists to make bird flu strains ... trends now

The US government is spending $1million of American taxpayer money to fund gain-of-function experiments on dangerous bird flu viruses in collaboration with Chinese scientists.

The research involves infecting ducks and geese with different strains to make them more transmissible and infectious, and study the viruses' potential to 'jump into mammalian hosts,' according to the research documents.

It is being funded through the US Department of Agriculture and will take place at sites in Georgia, Beijing and Edinburgh in Scotland.

It comes despite such research being restricted in 2022 and growing concerns that dubious Chinese research may have started the Covid pandemic.

The documents were obtained by the campaign group, The White Coat Waste Project, and shared with DailyMail.com.

The papers show funding for the avian virus research began in April 2021 and it is slated to continue through March 2026.

The specific viruses the researchers will work with include H5NX, H7N9 and H9N2. 

A 2023 study described H5NX viruses as 'highly pathogenic' with the ability to cause neurological complications in humans. 

The H7N9 strain first infected humans and animals in China in March 2013 and the World Health Organization said it is of concern 'because most patients have become severely ill.'

The H9N2 strain has been found in dove in China and while it has a lower pathogenicity than the other strains, it can still infect humans. 

The main collaborators on the project are USDA Southeast Poultry Research Laboratory, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and the University of Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute - a Wuhan lab partner. 

Additionally, one of the researchers being funded by the USDA is Wenju Liu, who is affiliated with the WIV - which is believed to have sparked the Covid pandemic - and a member of the board of a scientific journal, working with Zheng-Li Shi, who is known as the 'bat lady' for her extensive work on bat coronaviruses. 

Different aspects of the research are slated to take place in multiple locations, including poultry research centers in Athens, Georgia, at
