Covid Escaped From Lab As Part of U.S. Military Intel Operation, Says Former Senior Scientist For U.S. Government Contractor, EcoHealth
Ph.D. scientist, veteran, and scientist Andrew Huff publishes his accusations in a major new Simon & Schuster book that comes out on Tuesday, December 6.
Rumors have flown for years that the SARS-COV-2 coronavirus was man-made and emerged from the Wuhan Institute for Virology’s (WIV) laboratory in Wuhan, China.
Now, a top scientist who had top secret security clearance with the U.S. government claims that not only was the virus man-made, that it was the result of a U.S. military intelligence effort to spy on China’s bioweapons program.
“Why on earth would the Chinese ever allow us into that laboratory?” asked Dr. Andrew Huff, author of the forthcoming book, The Truth About Wuhan. “If they're doing bioweapons development, they have their own program going. They do not need our money. What they do need is our advanced biotechnology. And they need our training. And when I look at this, at the end of the day, this looks like an exchange of biotechnology for access to their laboratory.”
The official position of the US and Chinese governments is that the virus emerged from the wild. And, indeed, much of what Huff is claiming sounds like a conspiracy theory. “It either came out of a U.S. laboratory, or it came out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” he said.
But the notion that coronavirus was made in a lab has gained significant mainstream support over the last year and even the head of the World Health Organization reportedly told European officials in June that he believes Covid leaked from a "catastrophic accident" in a laboratory. And in May, the Biden administration acknowledged that the virus may have come from a lab.
Huff has a credible story that checks out and Simon and Schuster, a mainstream publisher, is publishing his book. Huff served from 2003-2006 in combat operations in Iraq. He went on to earn a BA in psychology, an MS in geographic information systems and systems technologies, and a Ph.D in environmental health science with a focus on emerging infectious diseases at the University of Minnesota. Huff did his post-graduate work at MIT in complex systems modeling and analysis, at the Department of Homeland Security Center of Excellence, and at Sandia National Laboratories, before becoming a senior executive at EcoHealth Alliance
Huff says he became alarmed when he read an EcoHealth Alliance proposal. “This is the ‘Understanding Bat Coronavirus Risk’ proposal. I'm asked to review this thing. I comment to [EcoHealth founder] Peter Daszak, ‘We don't have a biological security, or safety officer. We don't have an institutional biosafety committee….What about these things?’ [Said Daszak], ‘Eh, don't worry about that. We've got that taken care of.’”
But Huff’s story gets even more bizarre. He says that after he started speaking out publicly in 2020, his home was burglarized, and he was harassed, both in person, and with drones.
