The infamous Wuhan virology lab, accused of being the source of the CCP Virus that caused the pandemic, has an active file with the United States through January 2024 to receive federal funding to conduct research and experiments on bats, a Daily Caller investigation confirmed.
The National Institute of Health (NIH) confirmed to the Daily Caller that the Wuhan Institute of Virology is authorized to receive federal funding through Jan. 31, 2024. The NIH Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare Foreign Insurance file under which it receives funding was renewed on Jan. 9, 2019, days before the pandemic broke out in the United States.
The Chinese lab receives U.S. funding through an organization called EcoHealth Alliance that from 2014 through 2019 awarded $600,000 for coronavirus research in bats.
The theory that the virus escaped from the lab is based precisely on the lab’s involvement in such experiments and testing with coronaviruses and on China’s history of virus leaks from labs, such as SARS in 2003 that caused an epidemic in Beijing.
Some experts claim that the protein spikes of the CCP Virus were artificially modified to be able to infect humans.
NIH officials who spoke to the Daily Caller did not confirm that the Chinese lab is currently receiving funding from the U.S. government, directly or indirectly. The last payment EcoHealth Alliance made to the Wuhan lab was in May 2019, during the pandemic.
Disturbing facts from EcoHealth Alliance
The president of the “nonprofit” EcoHealth Alliance is Peter Daszak, known for having been the only U.S. member of the WHO team that went to investigate the origin of the CCP Virus in Wuhan.
In a clear conflict of interests, Daszak is accused of having received millions of dollars from the CCP to fund his research, in addition to having worked for the Wuhan Institute of Virology for more than 20 years.
After the WHO investigation concluded that the virus did not originate in the Wuhan laboratory, WHO investigators themselves revealed that it was Chinese Communist Party agents who provided the research documentation, taking away any possible credibility from the results.
However, Daszak said that the Biden administration should blindly trust the results of the WHO investigation, statements that certainly expose its bias toward the CCP.
In April 2019, the National Institute of Health stopped funding EcoHealth Alliance due to its relationship with the Chinese lab and controversial bat coronavirus testing.
However, in July 2019, the NIH said it would restore funding if EcoHealth met some demands.
The investigation happened, and the results favored Daszak, who it is worth mentioning received as much as $3.7 million from taxpayers with which he funded research and animal testing at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China.
