Origins of COVID: Does the name Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance, mean anything to you?


by Henry Kamens, … for VT Azerbaijan

No, it didn’t mean anything to me either until recently. But he is BAD news for EDPs, especially dangerous pathogens, what the US funded Lugar Lab is up to in Tbilisi Georgia, and what military labs around the world, which like Lugar operate under the guise of civilian research, are actually doing.

We are talking about things like biodefence DNA tinkering at USAMRIID & Fort Detrick by Bavari and Baric via DTRA, DARPA, PREDICT, BARDA (Kadlec) and EcoHealth (Karesh, Daszak and Franz) which go right to the top (via a network of patronage of contractors and good-old-boys). Basically, the worst things you can imagine actually exist, and are being inflicted on the world via these facilities.

Peter Daszak is THE key person when we are talking about the origin of SARS2. A group of independent scientists who pursue the origin of such emerging diseases are documenting the activities of such players—for entertainment and/or for the sake of humanity. Wherever they look, Daszak’s name appears.

Peter Daszak is leading a WHO group in Wuhan, and also a second group (Lancet), set up to investigate the origin of COVID19. But he has very close ties with Wuhan and Communist China through previous work.

That adds up to more than a few conflicts of interest, and many of these include military labs and the drug remdesivir, currently being tested by the pharmaceutical company Gilead Sciences in Georgia on unsuspecting clients.

Digging into his sordid history, you find it goes deep, and has many layers! Firstly, there is a leap of faith and science we must take, as it is “beyond a reasonable doubt that SARS-CoV-2 is not a natural zoonosis but instead is laboratory derived, and that is a smoking gun.”

Eco Health Alliance or Cartel of Death?

Investigating the alleged experiments on Georgian soldiers recently revealed by a whistleblower, I was led, as ever, to the activities of the Lugar Lab. When following up on some leaks from there, I found more than I was actually looking for.

In December I received an email offering inside information. Initially I suspected this was a trap, to discredit my efforts, and the combined work of VT and NEO, over the years in sharing such information. However, the offering proved most revealing, and dead-on as to subcontractors.

Peter Daszak’s Eco Health Alliance, which has a 6.5 million (2017-2022) dollars contact alongside other contractors, is one of the main service providers to the Lugar Lab. I am still investigation the others.

Virologist Vincent Racaniello interviewed British zoologist Daszak in a video originally taken on in June 2019, three weeks before the Wuhan Municipal Health Commission announced an outbreak of a new form of pneumonia. It was only posted Dec 19 due to tardiness of his social media staff.

Daszak talked about his work at this nonprofit, whose purpose is ostensibly to protect the world from the emergence of new diseases. In Georgia the organisation is charged with “supporting and stimulating basic, applied and advanced research at educational or research institutions, non-profit organisations, and commercial firms which supports the advancement of fundamental knowledge and understanding of the sciences, with an emphasis on exploring new and innovative research for combating or countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)”.

Since 2014, Daszak’s organization has received millions of dollars of funding from the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), which it has funnelled to the Wuhan Institute of Virology to conduct research on bat coronaviruses.

The institute also has grants from European sources. But tracking all the money it is swimming in is becoming increasingly difficult, as more and more sites which might be able to document the money flow are being taken down.

Not coincidentally, EcoHealth Alliance had previously received a $3.5 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in 2014 to study coronaviruses in bats in Asia. It is worth noting that particular study was being carried out in partnership with scientists at none-other-than the Wuhan Institute of Virology, in China.

Eight months ago Peter Daszak scoffed at other scientists who determined that Cov19 must have been engineered in a lab and could not have developed naturally in the wild amongst bats, rats or pigs.

He dismisses the conclusions arrived at by many peers who people are now starting to take seriously. But now some of the MSM in the US, Fox News, is picking up the fight, describing how US funded research on BAT viruses has been conducted via China, and the rest is now history.

CoV19 gain of function lab leaks-3 top reporters….

Steve Hilton investigates origins of COVID-19, links to US commissioned research (Jan. 25, 2021) entitled ‘The Next Revolution’ host breaks down the evidence surrounding the origins of COVID-19”.

The report also described Anthony Fauci, the top disease expert to Biden, and how he circumvented an Obama era ban on such research by outsourcing it to China and EcoHealth Alliance.

I am sure we will be hearing more soon, about Batman and Batwoman. It is no wonder why research is being done in Georgia, especially close to border areas, and the hunting of Bats (for research purposes) and the many allegations against the Lugar lab are proving true.

Fox Guarding the Chicken House

It is beyond happenstance that Daszak was named by the World Health Organization as the sole US-based representative on a team sent to investigate origins of the COVID-19 pandemic, a team which also includes Marion Koopmans, Hung Nguyen, Fabian Leendertz, and Christian Drosten.

On February 9, 2020, Newt Gingrich invited Daszak onto Newt’s World as a special guest, along with Anthony Fauci, to discuss the coronavirus and how it could potentially evolve into a global pandemic. This combination is most revealing, and buttressed with the PR support..

One source describes Daszak as “Not very honest, and the poster boy for disguising military research and experiments.”

“He started out studying zoology, as a lizard loving kid who studied reptiles, and then was able to help his wife a job at the CDC in Atlanta. He tagged along unemployed with her, then “suddenly” got a job coordinating virus research in 7 USAID and DoD universities. Coincidence or not, Daszak was also involved with the CDC during the Ebola outbreak in West Africa in 2011”.

Daszak speaks the speak!

Daszak’s present role has all the hallmarks of a buy-off. Having been moved aside in 2019, he was likely to say what he knew, as he has nothing to lose financially by doing so. Rather than have him cause trouble, he has been reintegrated in the Covid-19 “investigation” process as an expert on preventing viruses rather than someone who has greater connections with their probable source, and greater means to create them, than practically anyone else.

The New York Times reported Daszak as saying, in October 2019, when the federal government “quietly” cut off funding to the ten-year old PREDICT programme, operated by United States Agency for International Development (USAID)’s emerging threats division, that “Our research shows that new approaches to reducing emerging pandemic threats at the source would be more cost-effective than trying to mobilise a global response after a disease has emerged”.

He was allegedly worried that shutting PREDICT down could “leave the world more vulnerable to lethal pathogens like Ebola and MERS that emerge from [unexpected places], such as bat-filled trees, gorilla carcasses, and camel barns.”

However, he was likely more worried that his personal cash flow would be substantially reduced, and he could not readily move between competing interests with any semblance of credibility, notwithstanding his obvious conflicts of interest.

Researchers believe they could pre-emptively create vaccines and drugs to fight a wide range of viral threats — if they can get sufficient funding.

Professor Heinz Wolff was once a familiar face on both science-related TV programmes and product advertisements in the UK. When asked why he did this, he invariably replied that it was the only way he could get the money for the civilian medical research he believed was necessary, which he was happy to describe in detail.

Daszak never seems to have such a problem, whilst a great many of his peers do. If he doesn’t have to play the same games as Dr. Wolff, who had plenty of government connections himself, you have to ask who benefits from whatever he is doing, and why his work is more important than the civilian work which can’t get funded.

Barking up Bat Trees

If you are going to investigate diseases, you first have to acknowledge the disease exists. Conversely, if you insist that certain symptoms can be grouped together to classify something as a disease, you have to continually promote your idea of what that disease is, ignoring or disputing other evidence, to continue getting funding for “investigating” it, regardless of the what the facts are.

Brian J. Ford has written extensively on this sort of behaviour, and what lies behind it. As it says on the dust jacket of one of his books, “The Cult of the Expert” is a highly-entertaining and ingenious attack on the Experts who blind us with science, confuse us with jargon, frustrate us with bureaucracy, intimidate us with superiority – and yet – precisely because they are so successful at all this – have the power to appropriate huge shares of public funds and to make decisions which fundamentally affect our daily lives”.

Daszak is a graduate of this school of scientists, whose health interest is screwing the public purse to keep their kids in private school, and themselves out of jail. Some of the diseases they investigate, and the alleged sources thereof, can be considered Red Herrings, designed for political (and therefore associated mass funding) purposes.

There is still great speculation that many of the Especially Dangerous Pathogens, EDPs, we now hear of were manipulated in labs, including those tied with the US and foreign governments. Several countries may be involved; however,  accepting these practices as harmless parts of a protection deal in the same way taking narcotics is considered a harmless part of getting to hang round with famous people.

Daszak’s EcoHealth claims that it looks at the nexus between emerging viruses which affect public health and what is underlying them. It is conveniently claimed that “almost” all emerging disease are linked to underlying drivers related to people: travel and trade, and building roads into forests around the world. Actions which can therefore be controlled by compliant governments, following orders from other governments, has become the standard.

According to Daszak, “What we do at EcoHealth is look at the relationship between people and animals and the environment, and how that relates to pandemics, and we try and do something about it”. If that is what is it for, why is it still funded when it has singularly failed to prevent the worst pandemic in a century?

Bat Cave

As the BBC writes “A Chinese scientist at the centre of unsubstantiated claims that the coronavirus leaked from her laboratory in the Chinese city of Wuhan has told the BBC she is open to “any kind of visit” to rule it out.  The surprise statement from Prof Shi Zhengli comes as a World Health Organization team prepares to travel to Wuhan next month to begin its investigation into the origins of Covid-19”.

Wuhan is now home to the world’s leading coronavirus research facility. It was also the first city to be ravaged by a deadly new pandemic outbreak. This has fuelled obvious suspicion that the two things are connected – or why else would the facility be set up in the place that facility believes is the most deadly spot on earth?

If it wants its scientists to work, to stop the virus why is it trying to murder them? Bio safety is not in vogue these days; not internationally, and not even in the United States—and especially not in its client states—and the threats are not looking to decrease anytime in the nearest future.

But safety becomes an issue when money is involved – when money is donated to observe it, and money is the reason for ignoring it. The governments donating this money are fact, not conspiracy, and their attempts to gain a monopoly on “protection” from these viruses are fact, not conspiracy.

Taken together, with what is going on with funding and a shell game of labs and funding sources, it very clearly illustrates the military US involvement in Georgia and other hotspots more military/geopolitical than scientific!


I am still puzzled by all the resources they place in Lugar and other offshore bio labs. BUT I should not be, “as if we don’t know what has transpired!” BTW, this story is getting deep, Batman and Bat woman.

I watched Steve Hilton on Fox and to the BEST of my knowledge, and based on high level sources; his report reflects what has happened with COVID, based on my fact-checking.

The business insider story is highly-biased. Unfortunately, what should have been a scientific discussion has now turned into politics and ideology with pride and prejudice being the main drivers. This does not bode well for the future.

Scientists prefer to be free to do what they believe can bring fame and fortune, still expecting that society will unconditionally fund them (without questions). This may lead to hazardous outcomes and COVID19 seems a good candidate for this to happen, and the REALLY bad times are yet to come.

  1. A chimera or chimeric virus is a virus that contains genetic material derived from two or more distinct viruses. It is defined by the Center for Veterinary Biologics (part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service) as a “new hybrid microorganism created by joining nucleic acid fragments from two or more different microorganisms in which each of at least two of the fragments contain essential genes necessary for replication.” (Wikipedia)

    The bioweapon COVID-19 was created in a lab, not in nature. It was created by scientists in league with the fiends who first deployed it in China, then Iran and Europe, and finally in the USA. If it isn’t working up to expectations, it’s back to the lab to come up with a more effective one and give it a fancy name like the Delta variant.
