(PatrioticPost.com)- According to a report by The Daily Mail, online search giant Google funded research performed at the Wuhan Institute of Virology that is widely believed to have caused the COVID-19 outbreak.
The news outlet said that Peter Daszak, the head of the EcoHealth Alliance, performed the research through his charity for more than a decade.
Google.org, the charity arm of Google, also “repeatedly” gave financial resources to help the studies and research taking place in Wuhan. These financial ties were also revealed to have existed between 2010 and 2018, with many research projects exploring bat coronaviruses and researching whether they may ultimately be transmittable to humans.
On Tuesday, Google dismissed the reports, saying that they are “ludicrous” and “baseless conspiracy theories.”
Remember when they said that it was a “conspiracy theory” to say the virus came from a lab in the first place? We remember…
A spokesperson from Google said that grants were made on a “one-off” basis and have “nothing to do with COVID.”
The spokesperson also said that Google has engaged “zero times” with Daszak’s organization on any work in the Wuhan lab or COVID.
The story comes after Daszak faced intense criticism for giving funding to the Wuhan Institute of Virology. His organization, EcoHealth, acted as an intermediary between the United States federal government – which granted Daszak’s organization $39 billion – and the Wuhan lab.
Google might claim that the claims are a “conspiracy theory,” but emails published by the Daily Mail show how researchers from EcoHealth admitted that their studies were “made possible” from Google.org’s funding.
So…who is lying here?
