(JustPatriots.com)- In October, researchers from the Wuhan Institute of Virology and EcoHealth Alliance published a paper on new research into “recombinant” coronaviruses in rodents.
While scouring through the internet, The National Pulse discovered the existence of this paper last week which outlines research into the natural prevalence of coronavirus in rodents and shrews.
Researchers tested 300 rodents collected both in rural and urban areas of southern China to determine if there was “a potential recombination event involving RCoV-GCCDC4, murine hepatitis virus (MHV), and Longquan Rl rat coronavirus (LRLV).”
The National Pulse provides some pull quotes from the research paper that no average person could possibly follow.
But the research itself isn’t why The National Pulse is reporting on this. Instead, it is zeroed in on the organizations that funded the research and the specific scientists who conducted it.
EcoHealth Alliance is the non-profit group at the center of the controversy over the possibility that the COVID-19 pandemic began with a lab leak at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Three of the researchers listed in this October paper are connected to EcoHealth Alliance and one of the researchers is affiliated with the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Among the organizations that provided the funding for this study of coronavirus in rodents are what The National Pulse describes as “several Chinese Communist Party-run scientific bodies” including some connected to the Chinese military, and the US Agency for International Development (USAID).
The gist of The National Pulse article is this: despite the possibility that research into coronaviruses caused the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, both EcoHealth Alliance and the US government are continuing to fund and participate in research in conjunction with the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the Chinese government.
