Feds award $1 million to nonprofit that funneled tax dollars to Chinese bat coronavirus lab

JUST THE NEWS - Mary Lou Lang - SEP 25, 2022

EcoHealth Alliance was a conduit for funding from Dr. Anthony Fauci's NIAID for controversial bat coronavirus experiments at the Wuhan Institute of Virology widely suspected to be the source of COVID-19.

The Golden Horseshoe is a weekly designation from Just The News intended to highlight egregious examples of wasteful taxpayer spending by the government. The award is named for the horseshoe-shaped toilet seats for military airplanes that cost the Pentagon a whopping $640 each back in the 1980s.

This week's Golden Horseshoe goes to the National Science Foundation for awarding a $1 million grant to EcoHealth Alliance, the controversial nonprofit whose former vice president claims in a sworn statement it created COVID-19 at China's Wuhan Institute of Virology.

The NSF awarded the $1 million to EcoHealth Alliance and Boston University to predict and prevent future pandemics, The National Pulse reported.

The government spending watchdog OpenTheBooks.com questioned the grant to EcoHealth, which received several million dollars in grants from Dr. Anthony Fauci's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases to conduct research at the Wuhan lab whose experiments with bat coronaviruses are widely suspected to be the source of SARS-CoV-2.

"The new grant," Open the Books Founder/CEO Adam Andrzejewski wrote, "came after Peter Daszak, head of EcoHealth Alliance, has been accused of helping to spark the Covid-19 pandemic with his organization’s pandemic prevention work, Science magazine reported. He has downplayed the possibility of the virus originating in a lab as opposed to nature."
