‘Terrified By What I Saw’: COVID Was Genetically Engineered, Says U.S. Scientist Who Worked At Wuhan Lab

Dr. Andrew Huff, an epidemiologist and former vice president of EcoHealth Alliance who worked at the Wuhan Institute of Virology says the virus was genetically engineered through China’s gain-of-function experiments.

An American scientist who worked at a research laboratory in Wuhan, China, has claimed that the novel coronavirus was a “genetically engineered agent” that leaked from the U.S.-funded facility.

It was reportedly exposed by Dr. Andrew Huff, an epidemiologist and former vice president of EcoHealth Alliance, in “The Truth About Wuhan” book, in which he referred to the pandemic as “the biggest U.S. intelligence failure since 9/11.”

In his book, Huff says the COVID-19 virus was genetically engineered through China’s gain-of-function experiments — which modify the way an organism functions — funded by the U.S. government, The Sun reported.

He said that EcoHealth spent years teaching the Wuhan Institute of Virology the “best existing methods to engineer bat coronaviruses to attack other species,” and that China was aware “that this was a genetically engineered agent.”

“The U.S. government is to blame for the transfer of dangerous biotechnology to the Chinese,” he told The Sun. “I was terrified by what I saw. We were just handing them bioweapon technology.”

Huff claimed that China’s gain-of-function experiments were carried out with poor control measures, which led to the lab leak at the Wuhan lab.

“EcoHealth Alliance and 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,” he wrote in the book.

EcoHealth Alliance, a U.S.-based nonprofit organization that aims to prevent the emergence of new infectious diseases, has been studying bat-related coronaviruses with funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The group established ties to the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

“Nobody should be surprised that the Chinese lied about the outbreak of SARS-CoV-2 and then went to extraordinary lengths to make it appear as if the disease naturally emerged,” Huff added.

Fauci defends funding EcoHealth

Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), had defended his agency’s decision to fund EcoHealth.

EcoHealth received roughly $3 million in grants from NIAID in late September, which came just weeks after the NIH, to which NIAID belongs, terminated an EcoHealth sub-award to the Wuhan lab.

NIH told the House Oversight Committee that the Chinese facility had twice declined the agency’s requests to hand over laboratory records so that it could review the research.

When asked why he was confident that “EcoHealth is a good funding partner,” despite criticism about its lack of transparency over virus research, Fauci insisted that the two were separate matters.

“It’s kind of like saying that there is a grant from an institution in the United States, that [there’s] something really bad about that grant, and therefore, you shouldn’t give any funding to any other element of that institution,” Fauci said.

“You’ve got to be fair, and you’ve got to go by process, not arbitrarily deciding whether you want to fund something or not,” he said in an Oct. 4 webinar hosted by the University of Southern California’s Center for Health Journalism.

With regards to the lab leak theory, Fauci said that he “kept a completely open mind about the possibility that there may have been a lab leak,” but the “lab leak is a theory with no evidence whatsoever.”

Interesting considering the virus miraculously escaped right at the new year when Chinese citizens notoriously travel all over the world.

It was a Planned-demic. Planned by evil Globalists using the root of all evil; the love of money. And as we speak, more bio-weapons are being manufactured by the same type of people. More death is coming.

i have heard they had the vax before the disease. they wanted to inject everyone on the face of the earth, but knew people would not take a shot for no reason, so they had covid 19 emerge! right away all they talked about was developing a vaccine to save people when all along they had it waiting in the wings. they could not distribute it right away or it would look too fishy and they had to let millions die to put the fear in everyone to get the shot. and now more people have died from the shot than the covid 19. crimes against humanity worse than the holocaust. globalists and elitists need to be locked up and throw away the key
