Who Funded Covid-19 Research

According to the Daily Mail, the United States Pentagon gave EcoHealth Alliance

$39 Million. EcoHealth Alliance is a non-profit organization run by Peter Daszak that was conducting research at the Wuhan Lab to study "gain of function." Or more simply put how to make viruses more infectious, more deadly, or how to get viruses to move species from non-human to humans.


Daszak vehemently denies the virus leaked from a lab and that the origin of the virus was a spontaneous jump in species from some animal in the wet market in China into a human, then to the world. As of the writing of this article, his Twitter post is still denying the lab leak theory.


As the Daily Mail points out, "EHA has also funded deeply controversial 'gain of function" experiments, where dangerous viruses are made more infectious to study their effect on human cells." This research has been heavily funded by the Department of Defense.


FEDERAL GRANTS TO ECOHEALTH ALLIANCE

Daszak was so adamant about denying the Wuhan lab leaked the virus, he and members of his team acted as Facebook fact-checkers citing Lancet a medical journal to discredit anyone who suggested there was a leak in the Wuhan lab. "The Lancet letter, which performed a key position in suppressing early debate on the pandemic’s origins, was not solely signed however organized by Peter Daszak, whose group funneled U.S. taxpayer {dollars} to controversial gain-of-function analysis on the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV)."

In 2014 the Obama administration outlawed gain of function research, citing the possibility of a virus leaving the lab and creating a worldwide pandemic, however, EHA was allowed to continue with their research due to a loophole that allowed research that was 'urgently necessary to protect the public health or national security.' It is uncertain what was urgently necessary at the time that would require "gain of function" research on a potentially deadly virus.


The funding for "gain of function" was reinstated in December of 2017. Using the article Department of Health and Human Services Framework for Guiding Funding Decisions about Proposed Research Involving Enhanced Potential Pandemic Pathogens as their rationale for reinstating the research.


Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance, claimed the research is on preventing a pandemic outbreak, however, as the Defender Children's Health Defense writes, "EcoHealth Alliance, it turns out, is at the very center of the COVID-19 pandemic in many ways." He is secretary and treasurer of the Global Virome Project.


The mission statement, "Stimulate the development of an innovative network of public, private, philanthropic, and civil organizations to detect the majority of our planet’s unknown viral threats to human health and food security to prepare for and stop future epidemics." Does this message include manufacturing viruses that currently do not exist and make them more potentially deadly?


Daszak also sits on the Board of the World Health Organization, which is investigating the Wuhan Institute of Virology is considered to have a conflict of interest by many in the health community because of his involvement with the institute being investigated for the possible outbreak. EcoHealth Alliance and Daszak have been working with Shi Zhengli, a virologist at the WIV, for more than 15 years.


Simply put, the same man who worked with the laboratory where it is suspected that the virus originated, sits on the board of the organization that is investigating the possible outbreak. It is the equivalent of the idiom of "the fox guarding the henhouse."


In a 2016 forum on disussing infectious diseases and the next pandemic, Daszak described the process of “insert[ing] spike proteins” into viruses to see if they can “bind to human cells.”


“Then when you get a sequence of a virus, and it looks like a relative of a known nasty pathogen, just like we did with SARS. We found other coronaviruses in bats, a whole host of them, some of them looked very similar to SARS. So we sequenced the spike protein: the protein that attaches to cells. Then we… Well I didn’t do this work, but my colleagues in China did the work. You create pseudo particles, you insert the spike proteins from those viruses, see if they bind to human cells. At each step of this you move closer and closer to this virus could really become pathogenic in people."

Does the creation of a virus that may or may not appear in nature sound like a program the Department of Defense should be funding especially when the funding is going to an overseas virology Institute?


In our next article we will break down what we know about the Covid-19, virus, and the Wuhan lab where it is alleged it eminated from.
