The pandemic was caused by the US government’s funding of coronaviruses in China, says book by US scientist, The Truth About Wuhan
The US government is toblame for the transfer of dangerous biotechnology to the Chinese
China knew from day one this was a genetically engineered agent, writes Andrew Huff
While conspiracy theorists were demeaned for over a couple of years over claims thatthe coronavirus pandemic was man-made disaster, a US-based scientist who worked in the controversial Wuhan lab has now confirmed the conspirators, stating thatthe virus was leaked from the Chinese facility. Epidemiologist Andrew Huff in his latest book, “The Truth About Wuhan”, has claimed that the pandemic was caused by the US government’s funding of coronavirus in China.
Excerpts of Huff’s book have been out in the UK-based tabloid The Sun. The scientist categorically said it was a “man-made virus” that leaked from thefacility.Covidwas leaked from Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), a state-run and funded research facility, two years ago, the New York Post reported, quoting Huff’s statement published in a British daily. “China knew from day one that this was a genetically engineered agent,” Huff writes in his book. “The US government is to blame for the transfer of dangerous biotechnology to the Chinese. I was terrified by what I saw,” he told The Sun, as per New York Post. “We were just handing them bioweapon technology.”According to the New York Post report, Huff is the former vice president of the Eco Health Alliance, a non-profit organisation based in New York that studies infectious diseases. He claims in his book that China’s gain-of-function experiments were conducted with inadequate security, resulting in a leak at the Wuhan lab,according to New York Post.For more than a decade, the organisation has been studying several coronaviruses in bats with funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and has forged close tiesto the Wuhan lab, according to ANI. The NIH is the primary agency of the United States government responsible for biomedical and public health research.Huffreportedly writes in his book: “Foreign laboratories did not have the adequate control measures in place for ensuring proper biosafety, biosecurity, and risk management, ultimately resulting in the lab leak at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. We helped the Wuhan lab put together the best existing methods to engineer bat coronaviruses to attack other species. China knew from day one that this was a genetically engineered agent. The US government is to blame for the transfer of dangerous biotechnology to the Chinese.”
WHO kept denying such claims
During the early stages of the pandemic, the World Health Organization maintained that wet market version and denied any claim that opposed it. However, WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus reportedly told a European politician he feared the virus did leak from the lab in what he dubbed a ‘catastrophic accident’, according tomacra.comreport For years, experts who have studied this case believe the virus was either leaked through an infected scientist or improper waste disposal from the facility, reported the website. The Wuhan lab has been the centre of heated debates over the origins of COVID, with both Chinese government officials and lab workers denying that the virus originated there, reported NDTV.
