Pentagon gave millions to EcoHealth Alliance for weapons research program
From The New York Post:
The Defense Department doled out millions of dollars to the same nonprofit that funneled federal grant money to the Wuhan Institute of Virology for bat coronavirus research — with most of the Pentagon money going toward murky research on countering biological weapons.
New York City-based EcoHealth Alliance has already come under scrutiny for redirecting funds from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to the Chinese lab, from where many believe COVID-19 leaked to set off the worst pandemic in a century.
The final total: $33.85 million — 90 percent of EcoHealth’s awards from DTRA and 81 percent of its total Pentagon awards — over seven years for a single program.
By comparison, emails obtained earlier this month by the conservative group Judicial Watch found that EcoHealth was allocated approximately $7.5 million over 11 years from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) to carry out its study “Understanding the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Emergence”. The Wuhan Institute of Virology was to have received around $1.5 million of that sum before the Trump administration pulled the plug on the grant in April of last year.
