The World Health Organization recently sent a team to China to investigate the origins of the COVID-19 outbreak. One member of that team was Peter Daszak of New York-based EcoHealth Alliance.
EcoHealth Alliance directed U.S. National Institutes of Health funding to the Wuhan laboratory at the center of the COVID-19 controversy. Specifically, it channeled funding to Dr. Shi Zhengli, known as “Bat Lady,” who oversees research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Wouldn’t a better approach be to have the investigation completed by people with no connection to the Wuhan lab? And why are our tax dollars funding research in the world’s second largest economy?
In Senate testimony, Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of National Institutes of Health, said, “I do not have any accounting of what the Chinese may have done, and I'm fully in favor of any further investigation of what went on in China."
So, American taxpayer money is funding dangerous research in China, yet the people directing those funds are in the dark about how they were used? And some wonder why Americans don’t trust their government.
