US Government funneled millions of dollars to Wuhan clinic at the center of COVID controversy

June 5, 2021

So much has happened in regards to COVID-19 over the last year or so that you might not remember–and honestly, I did not–that last year all hell broke out with the Democrats when Donald Trump canceled a $3.7 grant to a non-profit organization named EcoHealth Alliance because of its connection with a certain lab in Wuhan. The Democrats went to the old standby line of attacks about our xenophobic, nativist, racist President but now we are finding out that one grant was just small potatoes when it comes to the Federal government funneling money to the lab in Wuhan at the center of the controversy. Here is more:

The Pentagon gave $39 million to a charity that funded controversial coronavirus research at a Chinese lab accused of being the source for Covid-19, federal data reveals.

The news comes as the charity’s chief, British-born scientist Dr. Peter Daszak, was exposed in an alleged conflict of interest and back-room campaign to discredit lab leak theories.

The charity, EcoHealth Alliance (EHA), has come under intense scrutiny after it emerged that it had been using federal grants to fund research into coronaviruses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China.

The U.S. nonprofit, set up to research new diseases, has also partly funded deeply controversial ‘gain of function’ experiments, where dangerous viruses are made more infectious to study their effect on human cells.

Federal grant data assembled by independent researchers shows that the charity has received more than $123 million from the government – from 2017 to 2020 – and that one of its biggest funders is the Department of Defense, funneling almost $39 million to the organization since 2013.

Just to be clear that $39 million represents only the money sent to EcoHealth (ironic name by the way) from the Pentagon, the United States as a whole sent $123 million. It certainly looks as if the United States government was funding biological warfare research and then outsourced the work to China thinking that was somehow a good idea, and then China released the results of our own research on the world. And to think the Democrats must have known this when they opposed the cancelation of grant money to EcoHealth by Donald Trump…
