Peter Daszak - EcoHealth Alliance (General)

Daszak is the head of EcoHealth Alliance, Lipkin is a frequent collaborator with Daszak. EcoHealth scientists, including Daszak and Baric, have been frequent collaborators with those from Wuhan Institute of Virology where GoF (Gain-of-Function) experiments on bat viruses are performed, ref ref ref.

Shi Zheng-li, WIV, was part of the team in 2008 that inserted a SARS sequence into an infectious bat virus backbone (SL-CoVs) to make it more infectious. They wrote such research was “invaluable in formulating control strategies for potential future outbreaks.”

In this article Daszak reportedly brags that EcoHealth Alliance has:

"...racked up quite a number of successes. The team and its collaborators at the Wuhan Institute of Virology have collected about 15,000 samples from bats. From these they have already identified ...about 50 (that) fall into a category that caused SARS and ... COVID-19."

15,000 bat viruses! That place was/is a weapons factory waiting to explode. With up to 50 that potentially caused Covid. So that's confirmation from the horse's mouth (probably a blundering one) that WIV was holding bat viruses that could have caused Covid. "About 50 of them"!

"The researchers were also able to demonstrate that at least some of the new bat coronaviruses they have found are capable of infecting a human cell in a petri dish"

Great. Let's unpack that. Peter Daszak was doing GoF experiments with Batwoman at WIV.

WIV experiments involve collecting bat viruses, infecting human cells, making viruses more contagious to human cells to "formulate control strategies for potential future outbreaks.” (Bear in mind this was 2008 - how did your control strategies go after 12 years of research?)

Ecohealth's $3 mil funding was withdrawn in May 2020 due to its ties to China. In July NIH restored the funding but with the following stipulations, including:
" -provide a sample of the pandemic coronavirus that WIV used to determine the viral genetic sequence
- arrange for an outside inspection of WIV and its records “with specific attention to addressing the question of whether WIV staff had SARS-CoV-2 in their possession prior to December 2019”
- explain “diminished cell-phone traffic in October 2019, and the evidence that there may have been roadblocks surrounding the facility from October 14-19, 2019"
- provide the NIH with WIV’s responses to the 2018 Department of State cables regarding safety concerns.”

EcoHealth has refused to comply.

EcoHealth 'pioneered' the push for Remdesivir as a treatment, which was approved, (ke-ching! Big-time) but it didn't seem to stop Covid. Batwoman was also in on that deal.

Let's say you do think there's a possibility that the virus leaked from an Wuhan lab. It's then a reasonable deduction, that if it did, Peter Daszak and Gain-of-Function whiz, Ralph Baric, worked on that virus.

The question then is: How is Daszak's appointment to this elite panel of expert investigators, not a conflict of interest? The guy is a massive 'person-of-interest' in any serious investigation.

What's the likelihood that Peter Daszak, already accused of "misinterpreting data" re MERS in a deal with the Saudi regime, will steer the investigation towards his own entanglement with WIV and another totalitarian regime, the CCP?

What's the likelihood that he will steer the investigation away from that?
