Feds Award $1 MILLION To Firm Linked To Chinese Bat Lab!

(FiveNation.com)- The National Science Foundation awarded the EcoHealth Alliance, an organization linked to COVID-19, $1 million to reportedly prevent and predict future pandemics, despite the fact that the former vice president claimed in a sworn statement the organization created COVID-19 at China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Government spending watchdog, OpenTheBooks.com, questioned the grant. EcoHealth has also received several million dollars in grants from National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, home of Mr. Science himself, Dr. Anthony Fauci. The grants were awarded to conduct research at the Wuhan lab to study bat coronaviruses.

“The new grant,” Open the Books Founder/CEO Adam Andrzejewski wrote, “came after Peter Daszak, head of EcoHealth Alliance, has been accused of helping to spark the Covid-19 pandemic with his organization’s pandemic prevention work, Science magazine reported. He has downplayed the possibility of the virus originating in a lab as opposed to nature.”

The NSF’s grant is part of a “new Predictive Intelligence for Pandemic Prevention (PIPP) initiative,” focusing “fundamental research and capabilities needed to tackle grand challenges in infectious disease pandemics through prediction and prevention.”

Republican senators asked the U.S. Agency for International Development to cease federal grants toward EcoHealth Alliance in September, according to Just the News. Nine senators signed onto a letter that urged the agency’s administrator, Samantha Power, to halt giving millions of dollars in funds to EcoHealth Alliance, until an investigation could be conducted into the organization’s foreign research programs and a review over adverse event accidents that may have occurred in the lab.

The outlet also reported that the former president of the organization, Andrew Huff, also admitted to EcoHealth developing SARS-CoV-2 through gain-of-function research.

“The process of developing SARS-COV2 was also described in detail in the proposal submitted to, and ultimately funded by, the National Institutes of Health (HHS NIH), The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), by EcoHealth Alliance with the WIV and [University of North Carolina] listed as collaborators,” he said in a sworn declaration.
