Covid“Man Made Virus”: Wuhan Lab

Wuhan A Story Of Horrors

A US-based scientist who formerly worked at a contentious research facility in Wuhan, China, has claimed that COVID-19 was a “man-made virus” that escaped from the establishment.

According to the reports, which cited a remark made by US-based researcher Andrew Huff in the British tabloid The Sun, Covid was released from Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), a state-funded and managed research center, two years ago.

Epidemiologist Huff argues that the epidemic was brought on by the US government’s support of coronaviruses in China in his most recent book, “The Truth About Wuhan.” Huff’s book excerpts have appeared in the UK tabloid The Sun.

The sources state that Mr. Huff is a former vice president of the EcoHealth Alliance, a New York-based non-profit organization that researches infectious illnesses.

Mr. Huff alleges in his book that China’s gain-of-function studies were carried out with insufficient security, leading to a leak at the Wuhan facility.

With both Chinese government authorities and lab staff disputing that the virus originated there, the Wuhan facility has been the focus of contentious discussions on the origins of COVID.

According to Andrew Huff’s book, foreign laboratories lacked the necessary controls to ensure effective biosafety, biosecurity, and risk management, which eventually led to the lab breach at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

The organization has established tight relations with the Wuhan lab and has been researching several coronaviruses in bats for more than ten years with support from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The NIH is the main US government organization in charge of biological and public health research.

According to Mr. Huff, who worked at EcoHealth Alliance from 2014 to 2016, the organization spent several years helping the Wuhan lab establish the “best current tools to modify bat coronaviruses to infect other species.”

China was aware that this was a genetically modified agent “from day one,” according to Huff. “The transfer of risky biotechnology to the Chinese is the responsibility of the US government.

He told The Sun, “I was scared by what I witnessed.” We only gave them the means to create biological weapons according to the reports.

The Post also notes that the WIV is where China’s riskiest coronavirus research is conducted, per a recent investigation by ProPublica/Vanity Fair.

The Chinese Communist Party, which is in power, has put great pressure on this research organization to advance science despite its limited funding in order to boost its stature internationally.
