The unsuspecting EcoHealth Alliance, a US-based nonprofit that once funded the infamous Wuhan Institute of Virology, now stands accused of hatching a malevolent plan to create mutant coronaviruses capable of leaping from bats to humans!
Judicial Watch, a valiant conservative watchdog group, heroically snatched the damning records through a legal request. The scandalous documents expose EcoHealth Alliance’s application for federal funding in 2013, with the twisted aim of carrying out perilous experiments involving bat coronaviruses.
The treacherous grant proposal titled “Understanding the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Emergence”! Within its dark confines, it confesses that EcoHealth Alliance would tinker with the spike protein of bat coronaviruses, creating mutants to probe their ability to infiltrate human cells.
The spike protein – a villainous key that permits the virus to invade human cells – was to be manipulated by EcoHealth Alliance in a dastardly attempt to predict and control the pandemic-causing potential of bat coronaviruses.
The proposal reveals that EcoHealth Alliance would gather bat samples from live animal markets and rural areas in China, where unsuspecting humans frequently come into contact with bats. The twisted rationale? To comprehend the transmission dynamics of bat coronaviruses across the perilous human-wildlife interface.
And yet, the proposal chillingly admits that these experiments carried the high risk of accidental or deliberate release of the mutant viruses – a monstrous act that could bring about devastating consequences for human health and security.
The sinister proposal proclaims:
“We will test our models of host range (i.e., emergence potential) experimentally using reverse genetics, pseudovirus and receptor binding assays, and virus infection experiments in cell culture and humanized mice. With bat-CoVs that we’ve isolated or sequenced, and using live virus or pseudovirus infection in cells of different origin or expressing different receptor molecules, we will assess potential for each isolated virus and mutant virus to infect people.”
These ghastly records cast a looming shadow of doubt over the roles of EcoHealth Alliance and the Wuhan Institute of Virology in the dark origin of COVID-19, the merciless plague that has claimed millions of lives worldwide. Furthermore, they expose the appalling lack of oversight and transparency in the funding and execution of such hazardous research.
