The Wuhan Cover-Up: And the Terrifying Bioweapons Arms Race (Children’s Health Defense) (Hardcover)
“RFK Jr. exposes the decades of lies.”—Luc Montagnier, Nobel laureate
From the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestselling author of The Real Anthony Fauci comes an explosive exposé of the cover-up behind the true origins of COVID-19.
“Gain-of-function” experiments are often conducted to deliberately develop highly virulent, easily transmissible pathogens for the stated purpose of developing preemptive vaccines for animal viruses before they jump to humans. More insidious is the “dual use” nature of this research, specifically directed toward bioweapons development.
The Wuhan Cover-Up pulls back the curtain on how the US government's increase in biosecurity spending after the 2001 terror attacks set in motion a plan to transform the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), under the direction of Dr. Anthony Fauci, into a de facto Defense Department agency.
While Dr. Fauci zealously funded and pursued gain-of-function research, concern grew among some scientists and government officials about the potential for accidental or deliberate release of weaponized viruses from labs that might trigger worldwide pandemics. A moratorium was placed on this research, but true to form, Dr. Fauci found ways to continue unperturbed—outsourcing some of the most controversial experiments offshore to China and providing federal funding to Wuhan Institute of Virology's (WIV's) leading researchers for gain-of-function studies in partnership with the Chinese military and the Chinese Communist Party.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s meticulously researched and rigorously sourced analysis leads readers on a staggering journey to learn about:
- the key enablers and henchmen pushing for gain-of-function research
- the economic motives behind gain-of-function research
- successfully engineered “chimeric viruses” that can infect and kill humans
- the coordinated effort to silence speculation of COVID-19’s laboratory genesis
- the complicity of scientific journals to hide the origins of COVID-19
- the role of the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China’s biowarfare/biodefense program
- the relationships between US health, military, and intelligence bureaucracies and scientists and their Chinese counterparts
- the roles of Bill Gates and Sir Jeremy Farrar in orchestrating a global cover-up

“RFK Jr. has done it again. The Wuhan Cover-Up is not only an indispensable history of the rise of the global threat of bioweaponry, it is also an oh-so-timely deep dive into how a viral pandemic was unleashed upon the world via the deceit, greed, and foolishness of bad actors at the highest levels of our own government. A stunning sequel to The Real Anthony Fauci, and an historic publication that answers the core national security—and existential—questions of our time.”
—Naomi Wolf, bestselling author of The Beauty Myth and The Bodies of Others
“This’ll scare the hell out of you. The scariest part is it’s true. Thank God for Bobby Kennedy Jr.”
“The Wuhan Cover-Up will blow out of the water the international disinformation campaign by US and Chinese government officials and their bribed scientists that COVID-19 somehow magically jumped out of the Wuhan wet market. Kennedy’s book will provide the ammunition needed for us lawyers to hold them all legally accountable for this Nuremberg Crime against Humanity.”
—Professor Francis A. Boyle, author of the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989
“Bioweapons are a forbidden fruit but an irresistible one because the criminal is rarely identified. Were coronavirus weapons so seductive that they blurred the line between friend and enemy? Bobby Kennedy lays out the facts in a book you won't put down.”
—Meryl Nass, MD, biological warfare epidemiologist and anthrax expert
“The title of US presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy’s new book, The Wuhan Cover-Up, does not really represent the scope and nature of this seminal work. This book is the most comprehensive historic summary and indictment of the history of the United States’ biowarfare/biodefense program ever written. Summarizing an amazing sweep of untold censored history, The Wuhan Cover-Up offers a case study demonstrating the consequences of the situational ethical slide which often occurs when a massive administrative bureaucracy fuses with an 'intelligence community.'”
—Robert W. Malone, MD, MS, virologist, immunologist, clinical research and regulatory affairs expert, and author of Lies My Gov’t Told Me
“RFK Jr.’s painstaking research reveals facts that anyone can confirm, but few can accept. Bioweapons research and production has a dark history many people would want to wish away. Kennedy’s compelling book makes that impossible.”
—Gavin de Becker, bestselling author of The Gift of Fear
“An extraordinary elucidation of a singularly dark and terrible enterprise. The Wuhan Cover-Up is a meticulous work of scholarship that reads like a thrilling crime story. Written by a current candidate for president of the United States, the book is destined to be one of the most significant in history.”
—Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH, author of The Courage to Face COVID-19
“If you found Bobby Kennedy's bestselling book, The Real Anthony Fauci, to be engaging and thought-provoking, then The Wuhan Cover-Up is a must-read for you. This compelling book can be considered the next installment in the series, delving into the intriguing history of the bioweapons-industrial complex and its clandestine utilization against humanity. Prepare to be captivated by the well-researched content that unveils the hidden truths behind bioweapons and their potential impact on us all.”
—Dr. Joseph Mercola, founder of Mercola.com, the most visited natural health site
“Robert Kennedy’s meticulously documented and powerful exposé in The Real Anthony Fauci alerted me to his stature as one of the most learned and courageous truth-tellers of our times. His new book on the history of bioweapons research, the incredible dangers it poses for mankind, and the almost unimaginable corruption in which it is enmeshed is a blockbuster of the same caliber. It reminds us not only that it is time we put this malefic ‘research’ to an end, but also rescue our government from the Washington cabals and special interest lobbies that control both political parties, thereby enabling a return to policies that support the middle class and make it possible for millions to once again experience the American Dream.”
—David Stockman, former US Representative (R-MI)
“I’ll never forget RFK Jr. telling me on a hiking trail in February 2023 that when you expose Big Pharma, you’re up against the Department of Defense. I’ll also never forget the Pfizer executive telling my undercover journalist, ‘You have to promise you won’t tell anyone . . . I suspect the virus started in Wuhan. Makes no sense the virus popped out of nowhere.’ Power hates sunlight, coercion relies upon deception, and informed consent requires a veil to be lifted. That’s what this book, The Wuhan Cover-Up does so effectively, much like its predecessor, The Real Anthony Fauci.”
—James O’Keefe, founder of Project Veritas and author of American Muckraker
“The greatest tragedy in human history has unfolded before our own eyes. I was not surprised to learn that a deadly virus, SARS-CoV2, had leaked out of a laboratory in Wuhan, China in the late summer of 2019. In retrospect, I was shocked that the US government did not notify and alert the public of the global spread of COVID in the fall of 2019. In fact, the US government did something far worse. Bobby’s book succinctly elucidates how and why the opaque nexus of the US military and intelligence community leveraged corrupt and morally deficient scientists and bureaucrats to execute what was the largest and most sophisticated psychological operation in world history. The three goals were simple: to obfuscate the true origin of a jointly created biological weapon by the US and China; to bring an untested mRNA-based medical countermeasure rapidly to market for civilian use; and, to instill fear into the population for dominance and control. Bobby’s book concisely and eloquently exposes these horrendous inconvenient truths.”
—Andrew G. Huff, PhD, author of The Truth About Wuhan
“Whenever I read, listen to, or debate Bobby, I learn something new and change my mind on at least one or two issues, while vehemently disagreeing with many others. Both the agreements and disagreements stimulate my thinking and emotions, even when they make me angry or concerned. Read him and make up your own minds."
“The Real Anthony Fauci provided the 'receipts' on Fauci's criminality. The Wuhan Cover-Up provides the act itself—an event that will live in infamy.”
Praise for Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and The Real Anthony Fauci
“Dr. Joseph Goebbels wrote that ‘A lie told once remains a lie, but a lie told a thousand times becomes the truth.’ Tragically for humanity, there are many, many untruths emanating from Fauci and his minions. RFK Jr exposes the decades of lies.”
—Luc Montagnier, Nobel laureate
“Bobby Kennedy is one of the bravest and most uncompromisingly honest people I’ve ever met. Someday he’ll get credit for it. In the meantime, read this book.”
"Despite all the lying, or maybe in reaction to it, Bobby is becoming a legitimate folk hero. I hear it all the time."
“As a trial lawyer, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has taken on the world’s most powerful corporations and held them accountable for harming people and the environment. Those companies denied any wrongdoing—but time and again, judges and juries were persuaded that Kennedy’s position was the right one. Kennedy’s information should always be considered, and agree or disagree, we all learn from listening.”
—Tony Robbins, New York Times bestselling author
“Bobby Kennedy and I famously disagree about many aspects of the current debates surrounding Covid and vaccines. We also disagree about Dr Fauci. But I always learn when I read or hear Bobby’s take. So read this book and challenge its conclusions.”
—Alan Dershowitz, Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law, Emeritus, at Harvard Law School; author of The Case for Vaccine Mandates
“If you have any interest in doing a deep dive into the more than 100-year history of what led up to the COVID-19 pandemic, then The Real Anthony Fauci is an absolute must-read. In addition to exposing Fauci, the book reveals the complex web of connections between Gates and Big Pharma and many of the most important players that were responsible for seeking to implement global tyranny and profit enormously from the propaganda behind the COVID injections, masks, and lockdowns.”
—Dr. Joseph Mercola, founder of Mercola.com
“Bobby Kennedy’s book on The Real Anthony Fauci speaks truth in times when health care becomes health harm, untruth rules through anti-science and fake news."
—Dr. Vandana Shiva, director of Navdanya and author of Oneness vs. the 1%
"I deeply respect [Bobby], and I think if there's anyone that deserves the Nobel Peace Prize, he is the one."
“I thought I understood what was going on from an insider POV. But this is mind-blowing. Anthony Fauci is playing precisely the strategy that he developed and tested during the HIV days. Bobby is on fire in this manuscript. The depth of information and facts, all carefully cited, is mind-blowing. It is a must-read. I think it will really help clarify what has been going down here. Thanks to the consistently dysfunctional COVID-19 response by Fauci and USG/HHS (US Government Health and Human Services Department), we have all become familiar with the terms "regulatory capture" and "Noble Lie." The personal opinion and bias of Dr. Fauci has been repeatedly substituted for evidence-based medicine, and we are all living with the consequences. But beyond this mundane incompetence, what this book clearly documents are the deeper forces and systemic, pervasive governmental corruption, which have led us to this point. Not since the reign of former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, have we seen such empire building by a corrupt, longstanding federal employee who is long past retirement age. Dr. Fauci's apparent need to bolster a fragile ego has led to the almost complete systemic corruption of not only US HHS, but the entire world public health system. The consequences will be lasting damage to the reputation of the United States of America, US FDA, and US CDC as honest, independent guardians of public health, which has been carefully nurtured over many decades. The world is now able to clearly see that the US HHS has been captured and compromised by commercial interests. One unintended consequence of allowing and enabling this tragedy will be further erosion in domestic trust in the Public Health System, and in particular, in the entire vaccine enterprise. Global impacts are likely to include accelerating loss of trust in US and western pharmaceutical companies and regulators, and more rapid rise of Asian, Indian, and Middle Eastern pharmaceutical competitors."
—Robert W. Malone, MD, virologist, immunologist, molecular biologist
"Standing as a pivotal work for the history of science and medicine, this book unveils the astonishing, twisted truth about a man (Fauci) and a corrupt institution (NIH) that have betrayed humanity at every turn in order to achieve profits and power. If the American people knew the truth that's documented here, they would be marching by the millions, demanding criminal prosecutions of all those who are complicit in these outrageous betrayals of humanity. RFK Jr's book closes the loop on one of the most disastrous and truly evil schemes in the history of medicine and science. If humanity does not now demand investigations and prosecutions across this vast landscape of science fraud and pathological 'authority,' we are truly beyond hope."
—Mike Adams, a.k.a. the "Health Ranger," founder of NaturalNews.com
“If you've ever wondered why so many good scientists and doctors have been silenced for discoveries that don't fit the mainstream Big Pharma narrative, look no further than Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s tour de force exposé of Anthony Fauci. This book reads like a John Grisham legal thriller. Except that it is not fiction. Read it with your eyes wide open. It's time the world woke up to the truth."
—Christiane Northrup, MD, former assistant clinical professor of Ob/Gyn, University of Vermont College of Medicine; New York Times bestselling author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom
“Robert F. Kennedy Jr. did a great job. I don't agree with everything, but his case is well laid out and copiously documented. The most disturbing things are the unbelievable financial entanglements, the shoddy treatment of patients in clinical trials, and the culture of intimidation. Overall a very good book and a call to overhaul the CDC/NIH.”
—Dr. Thomas B. Hakes
"To give great responsibility and power to those with no accountability is a recipe for disaster."
—K Paul Stoller, MD, FACHM, Hyperbaric & Integrative Medicine
"Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely."
—Mahin Khatami, PhD
“Kennedy's book proves beyond a shadow of doubt what many Americans have come to learn about Fauci: that he has stifled open debate to the point of utter stagnation of biomedical science. Fauci issues knowledge by decree. This most uninquisitive Fauci is far more concerned with being right and with making sure that the solutions adopted to problems come from his circle rather than in discovering fundamental truths, regardless of the completely externalized cost of his ‘solutions.’ The evidence shows plainly that Fauci has been wrong on matters of life and death far more than he has been right. Fauci's resulting body count is such that he should have a statue erected with him posing and hanging his head in eternal shame. Thanks to this book, historians will mark Fauci down as the most dangerous threat to global public health in the 20th and 21st Centuries.”
—James Lyons-Weiler, biomedical research scientist
“RFK Jr.’s story of Fauci’s failure as the government’s AIDS coordinator is a highly disturbing prologue to his COVID mandate as head of NIAID. So, who is Dr. Fauci in the end? Has American medicine truly become a ‘racket,’ as corrupt as a mafia organization? Does everything in our country turn on the size of the money involved? How can we begin to solve this? The Real Anthony Fauci is a fascinating starting point. RFK Jr. has written a strong, strong book.”
—Oliver Stone, award-winning director, producer, and screenwriter
“As I read Bobby Kennedy Jr.'s book I thought a discreet and thorough criminal investigation into Fauci should occur. Having observed Fauci's flip-flops on his statements on the COVID pandemic, coupled with the book’s descriptions by former coworkers as ‘neither a competent manager . . . nor skilled or devoted scientist . . . with a domineering nature toward subordinates and rivals that discouraged dissent, a foundation for an investigation exists. The conduct cited, involving the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices approval of a vaccine and how Fauci and his Pharma partners use their PIs to control the key FDA and CDC panels that license and ‘recommend’ new vaccines, is a red flag that warrants this investigation. The book cites an approval of a vaccine, whereby there was no testing of a vaccine against a placebo in pre-approval trials that is a standard scientific process to ‘predict’ and/or determine risks if the vaccines would avert more injuries than they would cause—and the vaccine was approved. This appears to be similar to what happened with the Covid vaccines. The Covid clinical trials were not in accordance with prescribed regulations. It brought back memories of criminal bid-rigging schemes conducted by Organized Crime in New York City. If an investigation identified intentional rampant fraud, vaccine deaths could be considered murders and the federal forfeitures would be billions of dollars.”
—Mike Campi, former FBI agent and retired coordinator of the Organized Crime branch of the New York Division
“Who—or what—is the real Anthony Fauci? That may be the most important question facing us today, as We the People struggle to survive the lethal care of ‘America's Doctor.’ This essential book reveals—at last!—that Dr. Fauci is, on the one hand, a severely twisted person, in his fiendish cunning, vindictiveness, and ruthlessness, a covert blend of Stalin and Iago; and yet, far more importantly, the story of Dr. Fauci's rise and reign is really all about the absolute corruption of our major institutions—government, medicine, academia, and (above all) the press—by Big Pharma (and the Gates Foundation). Those of us who really do believe in science and democracy, now have this book to help us break his fatal spell on everybody else, and start to rid the world of that corruption.”
—Mark Crispin Miller, professor of media studies at New York University; editor, News from Underground
“RFK Jr is a tireless champion of Americans’ rights to be informed about their medical choices and has been way out front in warning us of the dangers of an out-of-control pharmaceutical industry. In his new book, The Real Anthony Fauci, he turns the same relentless insider scrutiny on an out-of-control bureaucracy.”
—Naomi Wolf, bestselling author of The Beauty Myth, Give Me Liberty, and Outrages
"Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has written the Rosetta Stone that will help the public finally understand the machinations of Dr. Anthony Fauci, and how he has acted as the puppet master of science for the last half-century—pulling the strings of public health and Big Pharma influence and causing both sides of the political aisle to dance to his tune. A must-read to understand the fake news about medicine and therapies, bought and paid for by corporations with billions of dollars at stake."
—Kent Heckenlively, attorney, science teacher, and New York Times bestselling author
“Throughout history, fear has been used to manipulate and control populations. In a democracy, we have the privilege and responsibility to question the things we are encouraged to fear. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. provides something denied to most Americans in recent years: the opportunity to hear more than one perspective. You can accept or reject the new information in this book—but at least listen.”
—Gavin de Becker, bestselling author of The Gift of Fear
"If you want to understand the role Anthony Fauci, Bill Gates, Big Pharma, the CDC, WHO, intelligence agencies and others played in planning, launching, and profiting from the COVID pandemic, drop what you’re doing and read this powerful and meticulously researched book! Your future, your family's future, and the future of our democracy are at stake.”
—Ralph Pezzullo, bestselling author of Jawbreaker, Zero Footprint and other books
“At the beginning of the COVID pandemic, a leader rose to the stage, and his soft voice and welcoming smile drew us in, and we trusted him emphatically. After reading Bobby Kennedy’s earth-shattering book, The Real Anthony Fauci, it is clear that our trusted COVID leader shouldn’t be on a pedestal and should instead be on trial. This book is a must-read for anyone wondering why the United States of America refused to mandate wellness and instead pushed a problematic vaccine.”
—Rachael Ross, MD, PhD
