The Department of Defense is providing $3 million to the EcoHealth Alliance

The Department of Defense awarded a multi-year, $3 million grant to the EcoHealth Alliance — the company at the heart of the Wuhan lab leak theory.

Beginning December 12, 2022 and ending December 11, 2025, the Department of Defense will provide $3 million to the EcoHealth Alliance USA editions – the official source for US government spending data.

The EcoHealth Alliance will use the multimillion-dollar grant to “reduce the threat of virus transmission through wildlife in the Philippines.”

The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA), also known as Assistance Listings, lists government funding as part of scientific research to “combat weapons of mass destruction.”

The aim of the program:

To support and stimulate basic, applied and advanced research at educational or research institutions, non-profit organizations and commercial enterprises that support the advancement of basic knowledge and understanding of science, with a focus on exploring new and innovative research to combat or lies combating weapons of mass destruction (WMD).

The grant was provided directly by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), an agency within the Department of Defense.

The DTRAs mission is to “deliver cross-functional solutions to enable the Department of Defense, the United States Government and international partners hold strategic attack against the United States and its allies; Impede, reduce and counter weapons of mass destruction and emerging threats; and Prevail against opponents armed with weapons of mass destruction in crises and conflicts.”

USA editions revealed that the EcoHealth Alliance has received government funding since 2008. In 2020, the US government committed nearly $25 million to the EcoHealth Alliance. In all, the EcoHealth Alliance received $79.4 million—nearly 48% of that amount came from “fighting weapons of mass destruction” relief lists. DTRA has provided more than 52% of the EcoHealth Alliance’s total funding from the US government.

In September, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) – headed by Dr. Anthony Fauci – EcoHealth Alliance awarded $3.3 million over five years.

The NIH grant will fund a project to analyze the “potential for future bat coronavirus outbreaks in Myanmar, Laos, and Vietnam.”

Peter Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance previously conducted controversial bat-coronavirus experiments at China’s state-run Wuhan Institute of Virology. There have been allegations that the EcoHealth Alliance conducted gain-of-function experiments at China’s notorious Tier 4 biosafety laboratory. Some have blamed the possible lab leak theory in Wuhan on EcoHealth Alliance research.
