Scientist Who Tried to Squash Wuhan Lab Leak Theory Gets More Cash to Study Viruses; Fauci's NIAID Gifts $3.3 Million Grant to Study Bat Coronaviruses to Company at the Center of the COVID Lab Leak Controversy in Wuhan, and other C-Virus related stories

Scientist who tried to squash Wuhan lab leak theory gets more cash to study viruses:
A shadowy NYC non-profit run by a scientist who tried to squelch the theory that COVID-19 emerged from a Chinese lab has received millions more from the National Institutes of Health to study similar viruses in Southeast Asia.
A $653,392 grant to Peter Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance, awarded Sept. 21, is being administered by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases — whose director, Dr. Anthony Fauci, announced in August that he was stepping down at the end of this year.
The grant is the first installment of a five-year award totaling $3.3 million — and was doled out on the same day NIAID awarded EcoHealth more than $2.1 million for two more ongoing studies, one of which involves so-called “gain-of-function” to make viruses more dangerous.
EcoHealth Alliance previously received millions in grants — directing some of those funds to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, from where many believe COVID-19 leaked into the city of 11 million and trigged the worst global pandemic in 100 years.
Previously released emails have documented a close relationship between Daszak and Fauci, who received a “personal thank you” from the EcoHealth chief in April 2020 for backing the theory that COVID-19 spread naturally from bats to humans.
Vanity Fair reported in June of last year that Daszak personally organized a February 2020 statement signed by 27 scientists and published in the influential British medical journal The Lancet. The statement, which deplored the lab leak idea as a conspiracy theory, included the signatures of six scientists who had either worked at or been funded by EcoHealth Alliance — conflicts that, along with Daszak’s ties to the Wuhan lab, were not disclosed. --->READ MORE HERE

Fauci's NIAID gifts $3.3 million grant to study bat coronaviruses to company at the center of the COVID lab leak controversy in Wuhan:
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) – which is headed by Dr. Anthony Fauci – delivered a spanking new grant to EcoHealth Alliance. The grant provides five years of funding for Peter Daszak's controversial nonprofit group to research the "potential for future bat coronavirus." EcoHealth Alliance is the research company at the center of the COVID-19 lab leak controversy.
Rutgers University Professor of Chemical Biology Richard Ebright was one of the first to expose the new funding to the controversial research group.
"It should be noted that EcoHealth Alliance was awarded a new NIH grant ten days ago, providing an additional $3.3 M over five years for a project including high-risk virus discovery research in bats in southeast Asia," Ebright tweeted on Sept. 30.
Journalist Alex Berenson shared a screenshot of the 5-year grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) website that offers more than $650,000 in annual funding.
"This must be a joke. Please tell me this is a joke," Berenson wrote on Twitter, and shared screen-captured images of the NIH listing. --->READ MORE HERE
