    Although the lawmakers indicated that EcoHealth's transmission of American tax dollars to the WIV for projects involved in gain-of-function research was itself problematic, they found its obstructionism and aversion to transparency even more troubling. The letter referenced how, in 2020, Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth, called NIH requests that U.S. federal officials inspect the WIV "heinous," and derided suggestions that the virus might have leaked from the WIV — to which his organization had directed a significant amount of taxpayer funds — as "conspiracy theories." The authors of the letter did not hold back in their characterization of EcoHealth as undeserving of funding, suggesting the organization was dishonest, failure-prone, collaborative with the CCP, and exhibitive of a "reckless disregard for federal laws and U.S. taxpayers." They recommended that the NIH turn off the spigot and end funding to the organization.The letter to the NSFRepublican lawmakers called into question the NSF's recent decision to award a $1 million grant for a project that would include EcoHealth. Although EcoHealth is not the primary recipient, it is allegedly set to...
    A report co-authored by disgraced scientist Dr Peter Daszak has claimed there is ‘no evidence’ Covid was created in a laboratory. The international group of scientists say the virus likely jumped to humans at the animal slaughter market at the epicenter in Wuhan. They cite recent studies which found the majority of early cases visited or had links to stalls in the southwestern corner of the market, where animals that can harbor Covid were sold for meat or fur at the time.  Writing in the report, the authors said: 'The Task Force finds no verifiable or credible evidence to support the possibility that SARS-CoV-2 was created in or released from a laboratory.' But there will be questions about the impartiality of the report given Dr Daszak's links to the Chinese lab at the center of the pandemic. His EcoHealth Alliance research organization funneled US taxpayer money into the Wuhan Institute of Virology to carry out risky research on bat-borne coronaviruses. The British zoologist also tried to cover-up serious inquiry into the laboratory's role in the pandemic. He and fellow infectious disease...
    The description specifies that the likely outbreak areas of the south of China, Myanmar, Laos, and Vietnam "contain regions with "human-wildlife interfaces and likely regular spillover of novel CoVs from bats and other wildlife." "Our preliminary field studies have identified novel viruses related to known zoonoses in bats and other wildlife from each of these countries and communities with serological evidence of novel CoV exposure," the listing claims. "The overarching goal of our work is to analyze the behavioral and environmental risk factors for spillover of novel CoVs, identify wildlife-to-human spillover events, assess the risk and drivers of community transmission and spread, and test potential public health interventions to disrupt spillover and spread," the description reads. The research will attempt to "find serological evidence of spillover." EcoHealth Alliance claims, "Our results will provide detailed information on the risk of future CoV spillover and spread and will inform potential public health interventions to reduce spillover risk and outbreak potential." EcoHealth will also "rapidly supply viral sequences and isolates for use in vaccine and therapeutic development, including 'prototype pathogen' vaccines,...
    Republican members of the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis are calling for an investigation into the origins of COVID-19, citing evidence that research conducted at the Wuhan Institute of Virology could have launched the pandemic. The calls center on a group called EcoHealth Alliance and its president, Peter Daszak, who received taxpayer-funded grants to conduct gain-of-function research on bat coronaviruses in Wuhan. EcoHealth and Daszak violated the grant terms and potentially worked to hide the origins of COVID-19, according to the members. FAUCI SAYS 2020 LETTER CALLING LAB LEAK A CONSPIRACY THEORY DIDN'T DISMISS IT “EcoHealth Alliance facilitated research at the Wuhan lab that may have caused the COVID pandemic and poses risk to cause future pandemics," said Kentucky Rep. James Comer, ranking member of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform. "Instead of coming forward, Daszak and EcoHealth Alliance have chosen to shield the Chinese Communist Party and cover up their involvement." Comer and five other Republicans, including Minority Whip Steve Scalise, sent a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra...
    by Debra Heine   A scientist who worked with Peter Daszak at the EcoHealth Alliance has sent a whistleblower complaint to Senator Gary Peters, the Chairman of the Senate Whistleblower committee, stating that he believes Daszak works with the CIA and could in fact be “a double agent working on behalf of the Chinese government.” Here is a copy of the Whistle Blower complaint that I submitted to Senator Gary Peter’s Office. I would like to testify on this critical matter as soon as reasonably possible.@SenEdMcBroom @SenGaryPeters @RepJackBergman @LeeSmithDC @SenStabenow @joerogan pic.twitter.com/KcfBhDbSSr — Dr. Andrew Huff (@AGHuff) February 4, 2022 Dr. Andrew Huff told a conservative podcaster on Thursday that he believes Daszak is a “sociopath and a pathological liar.” And in a twitter thread last month, he said he believes EcoHealth is basically “a CIA front organization.”  In the thread, Huff explained that the COVID experiments were part of scientific research and development programs that started in the United States and were transferred to China. He claimed “the United States of America is primarily responsible for COVID—not China.” The doctor...
    by Debra Heine   A United States government agency was still doling out millions of taxpayer dollars to the scandal-plagued EcoHealth Alliance as late as October of 2021, long after it became known that the Peter Daszak-led operation had funneled federal grant money to the Wuhan Institute of Virology to conduct risky gain-of-function research. The Agency for International Development (USAID) awarded a $4.67 million five-year grant to EcoHealth Alliance in late 2021. A group of 26 House Republicans have sent a letter to USAID Administrator Samantha Power demanding answers. Today my colleagues and I sent a letter to @USAID demanding answers on their decision to continue to funnel taxpayer dollars to EcoHealth Alliance, an organization that funded dangerous, gain-of-function coronavirus research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology before the pandemic. pic.twitter.com/MvHYjuBgaq — Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (@GReschenthaler) February 7, 2022 “[We are] deeply concerned by this award given EcoHealth and Dr. Daszak’s troubling record of failing to report findings from federally funded research, refusing to cooperate with congressional oversight of federal funding awarded to the organization, and collaborating with the...
    The World Health Organization on Wednesday nominated a Thai doctor with direct ties to EcoHealth Alliance to serve on a new advisory board tasked with investigating the origins of COVID-19. The Thai doctor, Supaporn Wacharapluesadee, is listed as a subcontractor for a National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Disease grant awarded to EcoHealth Alliance in 2020 to conduct research into emerging pandemic viruses in Southeast Asia, according to records first reported by The Intercept. The grant also involves the “building of chimeric SARS-like bat coronaviruses” and the “building of chimeric MERS-CoV” viruses, the records show. Wacharapluesadee’s institution, Chulalongkorn University, is set to receive $1.07 million from the grant between 2020 and 2025, the records show. The funding includes carveouts for Wacharapluesadee to fly to New York City for annual meetings with EcoHealth Alliance President Peter Daszak, who orchestrated the now-infamous February 2020 letter in The Lancet medical journal that condemned “conspiracy theories” suggesting COVID-19 doesn’t have a natural origin. Daszak was the only American member of the WHO’s first COVID-19 origins team that concluded after a widely panned investigation in...
    Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appeared Wednesday night on Fox News’ "The Ingraham Angle," where he spoke about Peter Daszak, the scientist with the nonprofit EcoHealth Alliance who’s been facing pressure because of his ties to a Chinese laboratory in Wuhan that is suspected by some to have links to the origins of the coronavirus. EX-WHO ADVISER CALLS CHINA’S COVID COVER-UP ‘CRIMINAL’ MIKE POMPEO: Peter Daszak was involved in the funding from EcoHealth Alliance. … That was the group that was connected to the work inside the Wuhan Institute of Virology related to gain-of-function on the very kinds of viruses that we saw escape from that lab with near certainty. Peter Daszak’s got a lot of questions to explain on how this happened, why American taxpayer dollars were going for this and ultimately the Chinese Communist Party needs to be held accountable for what they did to the world.

    Google's charity arm, Google.org, has provided financial backing for research and studies carried out by Peter Daszak and his New York-based EcoHealth Alliance dating back to 2010, it has been revealed Google funded research carried out by Wuhan-linked scientist Peter Daszak and his charity for more than a decade, it has been revealed.  The tech giant's charity arm, Google.org, has repeatedly provided financial backing for research and studies carried out by scandal-hit Daszak and his New York-based EcoHealth Alliance. The financial ties, which were first reported by The National Pulse, are disclosed in various scientific studies dating back to at least 2010. Daszak has faced intense scrutiny since it emerged that his charity previously worked with the Wuhan Institute of Virology - the lab accused of being the source of the COVID-19 outbreak.  EcoHealth Alliance, which was given $39 million from the Pentagon between 2013 and 2020, has also provided funding to the Wuhan lab for its coronavirus research over the years.  The British scientist has since been removed from the COVID-19  commission looking into the origins of the pandemic after...
    Scientist Peter Daszak was removed from a United Nations-backed commission investigating the origins of COVID-19 after he revealed his connections to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV). Daszak’s non-profit organization, EcoHealth Alliance, funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars to WIV to fund the study of bat-based coronaviruses similar to COVID-19. Daszak also organized a February 2020 statement in a medical journal, The Lancet, that condemned “conspiracy theories suggesting that COVID-19 does not have a natural origin.” When signing the statement, he claimed that he did not have competing interests, despite his financial connections and professional relationship with WIV and its lead researcher, Shi Zhengli. The Lancet, which is leading the commission into COVID-19, asked Daszak and the other signatories to the February letter to “re-evaluate” their conflict-of-interest disclosures. The journal acknowledged that many “questioned the validity of [Daszak’s] disclosure,” in a statement. This time, Daszak admitted that his organization receives funding from the United States government and sends that money to labs in China. We invited the 27 authors of the letter to re-evaluate their competing interests. Peter Daszak has...
    The Lancet, a respected British medical journal, updated the profiles of members on its COVID-19 Commission and said Peter Daszak, the president of EcoHealth Alliance, has been "recused" from working on the origins of the pandemic. The magazine took to Twitter on Monday to address a letter published in the magazine from February 2020 titled, "Statement in Support of the Scientists, Public Health Professionals, and Medical Professionals of China Combatting COVID-19." The letter read, in part: "We stand together to strongly condemn conspiracy theories suggesting that COVID-19 does not have a natural origin." Sen. Lindsey Graham told "Hannity" earlier this month that the letter was "like the Russia dossier all over again." "This stinks to high heaven. This is Lab-gate, China-gate, call it whatever you want to call it," he said. MEDIA FACT-CHECKERS, FACEBOOK CITED WUHAN LAB-LINKED SCIENTIST TO DEBUNK LAB LEAK THEORY The Lancet's tweet said the authors at the time declared no competing interests, but "some readers have questioned the validity of this disclosure." The magazine said it contacted the 27 authors to ask if they had any interest...

EcoHealth Alliance President Peter Daszak’s profile on the website of The Lancet COVID-19 Commission has been updated to include the parenthetical quote “recused from Commission work on the origins of the pandemic.” The Daily Mail first reported on Dazak’s recusal Monday. Earlier this month, Vanity Fair reported that Dazsak helped organize a statement signed by 27 leading scientists that appeared in The Lancet — a prestigious British medical journal — in February 2020. The statement condemned what it called “conspiracy theories suggesting that COVID-19 does not have a natural origin” and proclaimed “solidarity with all scientists and health professionals...
    The Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) is authorized to receive taxpayer funding for animal research through January 2024, according to the National Institute of Health. The WIV received $600,000 in taxpayer funds between 2014 and 2019 through the nonprofit group EcoHealth Alliance to study bat-based coronaviruses.  The president of EcoHealth Alliance, Peter Daszak, was the sole U.S. member in the World Health Organization delegation that investigated the origins of COVID-19 in China. Daszak said the White House should blindly accept the WHO’s determination that it’s highly unlikely that COVID-19 could have unintentionally leaked from the WIV. The Wuhan Institute of Virology is authorized to receive taxpayer funding for animal research until January 2024, the National Institute of Health told the Daily Caller News Foundation. The WIV is at the center of widespread speculation that COVID-19 could have entered the human population in China due to an accidental lab leak. Researchers at the lab were studying bat-based coronaviruses prior to the outbreak, a project partially backed by $600,000 in U.S. taxpayer funds routed to the lab through the nonprofit...
