Corrupted lab leak denier Peter Daszak and his group EcoHealth Alliance have gone from exploiting one taxpayer-funded PPP program—wasting millions on treacherous Potential Pandemic Pathogen (i.e. “gain-of-function”) experiments at the Wuhan Animal Lab—to bilking another, the Paycheck Protection Program.
Anatomy of a grift:
1- Send tax $ to Wuhan Animal Lab for coronavirus animal experiments that may have started pandemic 🦇🦠🧪
2- Rake in $25M in new govt grants & contracts to study pandemics💸
3- Receive TWO taxpayer-funded pandemic bailout checks💰💰https://t.co/EsEh4d62RJ

Remember when we told you that the corrupted non-profit that sent your tax money to the Wuhan Animal Lab for reckless coronavirus experiments that may have caused the pandemic got a taxpayer-funded bailout of $750,000?
The bailout was uncovered by the watchdog group @WhiteCoatWaste. EcoHealth is headed by Peter Daszak, the only American member of the China-led WHO investigative team that searched for the origin of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Well, it happened again. As first reported by The Daily Caller, our investigators just uncovered that EcoHealth Alliance got ANOTHER TAXPAYER-FUNDED BAILOUT of almost the same amount.
EcoHealth—which received $25 million in taxpayer-funded grants and contracts in 2020 alone—also managed to squeeze two separate $700,000+ COVID bailout checks from Uncle Sam in May 2020, and, now, another in February 2021.
“EcoHealth..received a taxpayer-funded bailout in February 2021..The bailout was the second received by EcoHealth since..start of..pandemic. After receiving $738,861 in a bailout in May 2020, EcoHealth got..additional $719,570 in February of this year” https://t.co/MyTSFGEYwf

EcoHealth has continued to rake in millions in new NIH and DOD payouts even though Congress, media and others have called for investigations into its role in secretively funding the Wuhan Animal Lab and possibly causing the pandemic.
.@RepGuthrie, @RepMGriffith, and I are urging NIH to lead a complete & independent scientific investigation. We’re also seeking answers from EcoHealth Alliance about their NIH-funded work at the Wuhan Lab of Virology.

EcoHealth is also continuing to rake in our dough even though we busted them for repeatedly breaking federal law by not disclosing how much money they shipped to the Wuhan Animal Lab for treacherous coronavirus experiments on bats and other animals.
So, to sum up once again, because it’s an important story with a lot of moving parts:
Yeah. It’s outrageous.

Not safe, and not right.
That’s why WCW is urging Congress and the White House to defund EcoHealth now and secure an independent investigation into the pandemic’s origins.
