THENATIONALPULSE, Oct. 16th – The U.S. Agency for International Development has launched a new $125 million project with Washington State University and foreign collaborators to discover more than 10,000 novel viruses in nature.
Washington State University (WSU) announced on Oct. 5th that the project will collect more than 800,000 samples over five years. In a brief statement, the university claimed that they expect to find 8,000 to 12,000 novel viruses, and researchers will screen and sequence the genomes of the viruses that pose the greatest risk to animal and human health, focusing on coronaviruses, filoviruses, and paramyxoviruses.
The project plans to work with up to 12 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America to build scientific capacity in those countries to conduct large-scale animal surveillance programs using each country’s own laboratory facilities.
WSU has not yet identified its foreign collaborators, but the university has partnered with DJI and other technology companies with CCP background intelligence services to conduct research. Also, USAID has funded similar research with the Ecological Health Alliance and the Wuhan Institute of Virus Research, which is known to be the source of the Chinese Communist virus.
Biological research can be truly beneficial to humanity only if the findings are in good hands. A call must be made to clarify the origin of this pandemic and to hold those responsible accountable.
