You might think the organization at the heart of the COVID pandemic would be banned forever from receiving any more federal dollars.

The organization, Peter Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance, is having its best year ever. It has just scored its fourth ongoing grant from Anthony Fauci’s National Institutes of Health for — as incredible as it may sound — “pandemic prevention.” In all, it will rake in almost $3 million tax dollars this year alone, with millions more in the pipeline in coming years.
Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst, who has just introduced legislation to blow up the Fauci-EcoHealth funding pipeline, says enough is enough.
“It is absolutely batty that NIH would give another cent of taxpayer money to EcoHealth when the group has failed to respond to repeated NIH requests about violating . . . federal laws and turning over information about the dangerous experiments it was conducting in . . . Wuhan,” says Ernst.
