EcoHealth Alliance just got $1 million to ‘prevent future pandemics’

It’s laughable to give them money to prevent future incidents when all signs point to their involvement in the most recent one.

Remember EcoHealth Alliance? They’re the organization that Anthony Fauci’s National Institutes of Health passed funding for gain of function research in the Wuhan Lab through prior to the pandemic.

Fauci initially, and repeatedly, lied to the American people and to Congress about the presence of US dollars behind the lab, but was finally forced to admit the connection after Senator Rand Paul exposed him.



Now, in an almost laughable turn of events, EcoHealth Alliance has been awarded a $1 million grant alongside Boston University by the National Science Foundation. Then more money comes via the Predictive Intelligence for Pandemic Prevention Phase I (PIPP) grant, which allots funding for scientists to “strategize methods of early infectious disease detection and intervention.”

I couldn’t make this up if I tried.

We have repeatedly called for more investigations into the origins of the pandemic. And while, shockingly, a few politicians have taken up this mantle, what has already been discovered through the work of one Senator (Rand Paul) and one nonprofit (The White Coat Waste Project, where I am a fellow) has been damning.

They (Fauci, NIH, and his camp) tried to say we weren’t funding the very kind of research in the Wuhan Lab that could have led to the coronavirus. We were. They tried to change the definition of “gain of function research” once caught. It didn’t work. Now they’ve tried to claim EcoHealth Alliance violated the terms of their agreement.

There should be investigation upon investigation into these organizations until we know the truth. And if we did fund the coronavirus through dangerous practices that led to a lab leak, as it very much appears we did, there should be accountability and repercussions for all involved.

It’s laughable to give EcoHealth Alliance money to prevent future pandemics when all signs point to their involvement in the most recent one.
