I worked with the Wuhan lab – I tried to warn them so I KNOW Covid was a lab leak

A SCIENTIST who has worked closely with the Wuhan lab has claimed Covid was genetically engineered – and leaked from the facility.

dr Andrew Huff, former vice president of the EcoHealth Alliance, claims to have had a ringside seat in what he calls one of the greatest cover-ups in history — and the “biggest US intelligence outage since 9/11.”

The Wuhan Institute of Virology – a high-security lab specializing in coronaviruses – was in the eye of the storm as questions were raised over whether Covid could have escaped its lab.

Both China and the lab have angrily denied all allegations – but evidence of a leak at the lab has mounted over the past two years as scientists, researchers and governments seek answers and offer evidence.

Dozens of experts have suggested that Covid could have escaped from the Wuhan lab through an infected researcher, improper waste disposal or potential security breaches at the site.

Even the head of the World Health Organization reportedly believes Covid leaked from the lab after a “catastrophic accident”.

In his new book – The truth about Wuhan – Whistleblower Dr. Huff claims the pandemic was the result of the US government funding dangerous genetic engineering of coronaviruses in China.

The epidemiologist said China’s gain-of-function experiments – conducted with substandard biosecurity – led to a lab leak at the US-funded Wuhan Institute of Virology.

“The EcoHealth Alliance and foreign labs did not have the proper control measures in place to ensure proper biosecurity, biosecurity and risk management, which ultimately led to a lab leak at the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” he said in his book, an exclusive pre-release.

The EcoHealth Alliance, with funding from the National Institutes of Health, has been studying various coronaviruses in bats for more than a decade — and has developed close working relationships with the Wuhan lab.

dr Huff, who served at the EcoHealth Alliance from 2014 to 2016 and served as its vice president from 2015, worked as a US government scientist on the classified side of the research program.

The Michigan army veteran said the organization spent many years teaching the Wuhan lab the “best existing methods of developing bat coronaviruses to attack other species.”

And he claimed, “China knew from day one that it was a genetically engineered drug.”

“The US government is to blame for transferring dangerous biotechnology to the Chinese,” he said.

Speaking to The Sun Online, Dr. Huff added, “I was scared of what I saw. We just gave them bioweapons technology.”

In his book, the emerging infectious disease expert claims that “greedy scientists have killed millions of people worldwide” – going so far as to claim the US government has covered it up.

Former intelligence chiefs and diplomats have previously claimed Covid leaked from a Wuhan lab in the “cover-up of the century.”

dr Huff said: “No one should be surprised that the Chinese lied about the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak and then went to extraordinary lengths to make it appear that the disease arose naturally.

“The shocking part of all of this is how the United States government has lied to all of us.”

In 2009, the Wuhan lab began working with the EcoHealth Alliance on a USAID program called PREDICT, which focuses on emerging pandemic threats.

PREDICT is designed to help detect and find zoonotic viruses with pandemic potential – including coronaviruses.

Shi Zhengli – the Wuhan virologist who became famously known as “Batwoman” – hoped the program would create an early warning system for pandemics.

But in 2014, Dr. Huff to consider a funding proposal that revealed function enhancement work was being done to create SARS-CoV-2 – which causes Covid.

Gain-function work is beefing up viruses so they can more easily infect humans to help researchers test scientific theories, develop new technologies, and find treatments for infectious diseases.

But the risky research method can raise safety concerns — and it’s banned in many countries.

It was originally banned in the US in 2014 – but reintroduced by the NIH in 2017.

dr Huff realized that the EcoHealth Alliance, with support from USAID – a US government agency – was working closely with the Wuhan lab on gain-of-function research.

He soon realized that the virus would never occur naturally and had been engineered in the lab into a much more potent pathogen.

dr Huff believes Covid was genetically engineered in Wuhan by winning functional research funded by the US government – and poor biosecurity led to a leak at the lab.

“EcoHealth Alliance developed SARS-CoV-2 and was responsible for the development of the SARS-CoV-2 pathogen during my tenure with the organization,” he said.

Although he pointed out that he hadn’t seen any evidence that China deliberately released the virus.

dr Huff believes the US-funded project was “primarily a global coronavirus trapping expedition” to gain functional gains or gather intelligence – rather than prevent future pandemics.

“At the time, I felt the project seemed more like gathering information than scientific research and development,” he said in his book.

The scientist said the PREDICT program hasn’t collected the data it should have – and he told The Sun Online it appears to be a “huge intelligence operation”.

He claims the US would use the project to assess the bioweapons capabilities of foreign laboratories – including the Wuhan Institute of Virology.


During a meeting with top executives in 2015 and 2016, Dr. Huff said he was alerting contract labs about biosecurity and biosecurity risks.

“I was concerned that the EcoHealth Alliance did not have enough visibility or first-hand knowledge of what was going on in foreign labs that were contracted and managed by the EcoHealth Alliance,” he said.

dr Huff said U.S. government officials again issued warnings about the Wuhan lab in January 2018 — including the severe shortage of experts needed to safely conduct research into deadly coronaviruses.

“One could reasonably argue that the EcoHealth Alliance has doomed China,” he said.

And when Covid surfaced in late 2019, he said China “and some of their US government employees at the State Department, USAID, and the Department of Defense went into full cover-up mode.”

dr Huff said he had “good reason to believe that the US government was notified of the outbreak in August or October 2019.”

He left the EcoHealth Alliance in 2016 “due to a variety of ethical concerns about the science and the EcoHealth Alliance as a whole.”

But in late 2019 he was suddenly offered a job at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) — and told the job would require top security clearance and a polygraph.

dr Huff now believes he was approached for the role to keep him quiet about the origins of Covid.

“I believe that people working within the US government may have identified me as a risk because they knew firsthand that the event of the SARS-CoV-2 disease outbreak was a consequence of the promotion of genetic engineering of SARS -CoV-2 by the US government domestically and abroad,” he said in his book.

“If I had accepted the position, I believe DARPA would have provided limited information to me, which consequently would have prevented me from discussing that information publicly, as I have done and do now.”

He added: “About a month into the pandemic, and I was firmly convinced that SARS-CoV-2 is a man-made pathogen, I suddenly realized what the potential motivation and persistence for my recruitment was.

“The intelligence community realized that I was the only person in a senior position to leave EHA, and the fact that I was working outside of government control made me a threat to their agenda.”

dr Huff believes government officials offered him the role so he could be “sworn to silence for the rest of my life.”

As he began to uncover the alleged comprehensive cover-up by the US government, he said the authorities had launched a massive campaign of harassment against him.

He claimed military drones often show up at his home, he’s been followed at the supermarket, and he’s been followed by unidentified vehicles.

In the meantime, Dr. Huff filed a lawsuit against the EcoHealth Alliance in upstate New York with Renz Law LLC.

The National Institutes of Health previously said in a letter to Congress that the bat viruses the EcoHealth Alliance was studying in Wuhan may not have become the virus that causes Covid.
