Peter Daszak and EcoHealth Alliance have found themselves at the center of a very disturbing story, a story that may lead to implicating Daszak and EcoHealth Alliance in the deaths of millions around the world. We know that EcoHealth Alliance received tens of millions of dollars in research grants from the NIH and NIAID, and, in a chilling revelation covered by my colleague Shipwreckedcrew, $39 million in grants from the Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security, some part of which funded bioweapons research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

As we’ve reported, EcoHealth Alliance has been awarded over $123 million in grant funding through the United States Government, which includes funding from the NIH, the NIAID, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Homeland Security. Despite that insane amount of funding from a single patron, EcoHealth Alliance, an international nonprofit, is not about to leave any money on the table.

EHA PPP Loan Summary

On May 3rd, 2020, just weeks after the Trump Administration revoked grants to the organization (they were restored in July 2020), EcoHealth Alliance was awarded $751,569 in Paycheck Protection Loan Program (PPP) loans for COVID-19 relief from the Small Business Administration. These funds, intended for small businesses (not those raking in hundreds of millions of dollars) struggling to make ends meet during the COVID-19 pandemic, were abused by many companies that did not need this funding to bridge that difficult gap. EcoHealth Alliance’s name can now be added to that list.

EHA PPP Loan 2

Then, on February 18th, 2021, a year to the day that the Daszak-orchestrated Lancet letter denying the lab-leak theory was published, EcoHealth Alliance was again awarded $719,570 in PPP loans. Again, this was after their funding was restored by the Trump Administration in July 2020. EcoHealth Alliance has been prohibited from conducting research related to the grants that were ended then reinstated since April 2020, but they’ve received full funding – which means that researchers’ paychecks have been protected. So why do they need PPP funding?

So here we have EcoHealth Alliance, a group
