The National Institute of Health under has authorized funding for the Wuhan Virology Lab (WIV) through 2024.
The WIV, which received funding during from 2014-2019 in the amount of $600,000, which was awarded to the not-for-profit EcoHealth Alliance for the purpose of studying bat-based coronaviruses, of all things.
The one US representative on the World Health Organization's investigation team that went to Wuhan to find the origins of the COVID-19 coronavirus, and failed to do so, was the president of the EcoHealth Alliance, Peter Daszak, according to the Daily Caller.
"A NIH spokeswoman told the Daily Caller News Foundation that the WIV’s Foreign Assurance was approved on Jan. 9, 2019, and is currently set to expire on Jan. 31, 2024."
In addition to the $600,000, EcoHealth Alliance also received a $3.7 million grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases under the Obama administration. This grant was halted by the Trump administration in the spring of 2020, because the NIH had concerns that the not-for-profit's work was not in line with "program goals and agency priorities."
The conditions for the reinstatement of the funding was based on conditions which included organizing a team to investigate the origins of the virus, specifically to check if the Wuhan Virology Lab "had possession of the SARS-COV-2 virus prior to the first known cases in December 2019."
At the time, Daszak told NPR that the NIH's conditions were "preposterous," and went on to say "I'm not trained as a private detective. It's not really my job to do that."
Daszak and his team said that the virus did not originate in a lab, but was probably from an animal. This is what they said over a year ago, and just as then, it was at the apparent urging of the CCP. The WHO report has not yet been officially released.
However, Daszak said the findings that there was no lab origin to the coronavirus should simply be accepted by the White House. He also said that no one had the virus before December, despite reports to the contrary.
The Wuhan Virology Lab has been speculated to have been where the virus both escaped from and originated, as researchers there, with US funding, were studying "gain of function" as regards the family of coronaviruses, and could have altered a virus originally found in nature in order to make it more contagious and therefore easier to study.
The World Health Organization was recently given $200 million by the Biden administration, after the previous Trump administration withheld those funds over the WHO's inadequate job in handling both the pandemic and China.
The White Coat Waste Project's president, Anthony Bellotti, told Daily Caller that the EcoHealth Alliance should not get any US funding. He said that they have used the funding for "reckless gain-of-function animal experiments that may have led to the COVID-19 pandemic."
"We're urging Congress and the White House to defund EcoHealth now and secure independent investigations into whether their treacherous gain-of-function animal experiments at the Wuhan Institute of Virology led to the COVID outbreak," Bellotti said.
