US Buys $290M Worth of Anti-Radiation Drugs
(RightWing.org) – Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), continues to operate in the shadows. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) referred him to the Justice Department for his alleged efforts to cover up his funding of dangerous gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China, before the pandemic. Right Wing recently reported that a government database revealed the NIAID’s continued financing of Chinese research projects. In addition, a new disclosure revealed his agency helped spearhead the quiet purchase of millions of dollars worth of anti-radiation drugs.
On October 4, the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued a press release detailing its $290-million purchase of a drug called Nplate for use during nuclear and radiological emergencies. The American-produced pharmaceutical “stimulates the body’s production of platelets” to combat the frequently deadly effects of acute radiation syndrome, commonly referred to as radiation sickness.

Here’s the kicker. Dr. Fauci’s NIAID played a role in developing Nplate along with the HHS’ Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority. And, like many of his other projects, mystery surrounds the decision to purchase more than a quarter-billion dollars of the drug. In this case, who is it for?
Reports recently emerged regarding the possibility that Russian President Vladimir Putin might order a surgical nuclear strike in Ukraine. He also claims to now control the nuclear power plant at Zaporizhzhia. Could the purchase of Nplate have something to do with the rising nuclear tensions? Is the drug meant for US citizens? Ukrainians? Eastern Europeans? These are questions we hope we never need to answer.
An unnamed spokesperson for HHS denied any connection between the procurement of Nplate and the war in Ukraine when asked about the purchase by The Telegraph. Instead, the government official said the acquisition was part of the service’s “ongoing” efforts to maintain “radiological security” and “preparedness.”
What do you think? Do you trust the government’s response?
