Coronavirus Research Funding Information Disclosed

By Debesh Choudhury | Pandemic Truths | 15 Sep 2021

Coronavirus research in China had been regularly funded by several international funding sources including US government agencies as well as corporations.

Earlier I published an article pointing out towards a 2018 PLOS One journal research paper that disclosed that Google had funded virus research of the Wuhan Lab in the 2010s.


Google funded Coronavirus research in 2018

The research paper available in PLOS One shows the details. The abstract of the research paper clearly mentions that the virus got “pandemic potential.”

Google had directly funded several rounds of research and papers relating to Coronavirus in China, including one that can be read clearly in the abstract: “in Guangdong, China, to characterize behaviors and perceptions associated with transmission of pathogens with pandemic potential.”

There is no doubt that Google directly funded the referred research. There is a specific mention of the funding agency in the published research paper in the reputed research journal PLOS One.

New details disclosed about Coronavirus research funding to Wuhan

Freshly published documents provide details of U.S.-funded research on several types of Coronaviruses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China.

"The Intercept has obtained more than 900 pages of documents detailing the work of EcoHealth Alliance, a U.S.-based health organization that used federal money to fund bat Coronavirus research at the Chinese laboratory." - source: The Intercept

"The documents were released in connection with ongoing Freedom of Information Act litigation by The Intercept against the National Institutes of Health. The Intercept is making the full documents available to the public." - source: The Intercept

The Coronavirus Crisis - Feature by The Intercept

"Biden blamed China for failing to release critical data, but the U.S. government has also been slow to release information. The Intercept initially requested the proposals in September 2020." - source: The Intercept

The complete coverage "The Coronavirus Crisis" may be found in the special feature of The Intercept.


Bringing it altogether

The present and the ongoing crisis caused by the new virus signature called COVID-19 is a complex narrative game. There are several players - the mainstream news media, big techs, big pharma, social media giants, and the governments around the globe.

The truth about the pandemic is slowly getting revealed by the alternative and smaller news media.

If we have to get the true news, we must look at both mainstream and alternative news media.

We also need to cross-check the authenticity of the news by verifying through personally acquainted people around the world.

The remaining truth will be unfurled sooner or later.
