A US-based scientist who worked at a controversial research lab in China’s Wuhan has disclosed that COVID-19 was a “man-made virus” that leaked from the lab.
Covid was leaked from Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), a state-funded research facility, according to the New York Post, citing US-based researcher Andrew Huff’s statement in The Sun.
Huff claims in his latest book, “The Truth About Wuhan,” that the US government funded coronaviruses in China that caused the pandemic. UK tabloid The Sun has published excerpts from Huff’s book.
New York Post reports that Mr Huff is a former vice president of the EcoHealth Alliance, a non-profit organization that studies infectious diseases.
In his book, Mr. Huff claims that China’s gain-of-function experiments were conducted with inadequate security, resulting in a leak at the Wuhan lab.
There have been heated debates about COVID’s origins at the Wuhan lab, with Chinese government officials and lab workers denying that it originated there.
The lab leak at the Wuhan Institute of Virology was caused by foreign laboratories not having adequate control measures for ensuring biosafety, biosecurity, and risk management.
With funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the organization has studied several coronaviruses in bats for more than a decade.
Research in biomedicine and public health is the primary responsibility of the National Institutes of Health.
According to Mr Huff, EcoHealth Alliance assisted Wuhan lab for many years in developing the “best existing methods to engineer bat coronaviruses to attack other species.”
Huff wrote that China knew from the beginning that this was a genetically engineered agent. It is the US government that is responsible for the transfer of dangerous biotechnology to China.
According to New York Post, “I was terrified by what I saw. We were just handing them bioweapon technology.”
According to a recent investigation published by ProPublica/Vanity Fair, the WIV houses China’s most risky Coronavirus research.
The ruling Chinese Communist Party has enormously pressured this research institute to produce scientific breakthroughs to raise its global status.
