Peter Daszak's EcoHealth Was Just Awarded Another NIH Grant To Study Bat Coronaviruses
By this point, it should be getting fairly clear that Covid-19 more likely than not came from the Wuhan Institute of Virology. For those yet to be red pilled, here’s one Harvard PhD’s take on the evidence.
“This evidence is not dispositive, but were the lab leak hypothesis incorrect, it would represent a staggering set of coincidences,” Justin B. Kinney, an Associate Professor at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and Princeton PhD wrote about the evidence.
And we all know Peter Daszak at this point. He is the head of the taxpayer funded EcoHealth Alliance, which “funnelled hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Wuhan Institute of Virology”. Daszak has worked closely with “bat woman” Shi Zhengli in modifying and researching coronaviruses.
Then, after the Covid pandemic reached its “oh shit”-style escape velocity, forcing the relatively worthless World Health Organization to declare it a pandemic, he took to the pages of The Guardian to remind us that anybody questioning the origins of the virus just because there happened to be a Virology Lab miles away working on bat coronaviruses - that he was tied to - was a conspiracy theorist.
He was later also accused of orchestrating a 'bullying' campaign behind the scenes to try and cover up blame for the virus by penning a letter to The Lancet claiming the same.
Jamie Metzl, who sits on the World Health Organization's advisory committee on human genome editing, told The Daily Mail that the letter “was scientific propaganda and a form of thuggery and intimidation.” He called it “the worst form of bullying in full contravention of the scientific method.”
And so imagine my surprise when browsing Twitter this weekend and stumbling upon Alex Berenson’s feed, wherein he pointed out that the NIH was giving new funding to Peter Daszak for continued bat coronavirus research.
I couldn’t believe it, so I had to check it out myself. Straight from the NIH website, there it was: a $653,392 tranche of funding for none other than “EcoHealth Alliance, Inc.” led by Peter Daszak and beginning on September 21, 2022.
The project is titled “Analyzing the potential for future bat coronavirus emergence in Myanmar, Laos, and Vietnam”.
The administering institute is listed as none other than the NIAID.
What Berenson didn’t point out is that it seems Daszak may have also been awarded an additional $1.5 million from the NIAID this year also, for a project entitled “Understanding Risk of Zoonotic Virus Emergence in EID Hotspots of Southeast Asia”.
In other words, the EcoHealth Alliance may have received over $2 million in funding this year so far, despite mountains of circumstantial evidence surfacing that Daszak may have knowingly led a cover-up about Covid-19’s true origins.
For those further interested in the growing list of circumstantial evidence behind the lab leak theory - which remains just a theory and hypothesis at this point (albeit, I believe a very strong theory), you should peruse Jamie Metzl’s entire website carefully and/or listen to this 5 hour-long interview with Lex Fridman that lays out his entire case.
