Who is Andrew Huff? Ex-VP of EcoHealth Alliance claims Covid virus leaked from China and was funded by US
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Dr Andrew G Huff, one of the epidemiologists who worked in the Wuhan lab during the Covid-19 pandemic, has reportedly claimed that the virus was leaked from China in his recent book titled 'The Truth about Wuhan: How I Uncovered the Biggest Lie in History'. He also claimed that it was the result of the US government's funding of dangerous genetic engineering of coronaviruses in China.
According to The Sun, Dr Huff, who was the vice president of EcoHealth Alliance, said that China’s experiments with shoddy biosecurity eventually led to a lab leak at the US-funded Wuhan Institute of Virology. He also termed the Covid-19 cover-up as the "biggest US intelligence failure since 9/11".
Who is Andrew Huff?
Dr Andrew G Huff was the vice president of EcoHealth Alliance. He began working with the company in 2014 and ended his tenure in the year 2021. According to Daily Star, he has also worked for different gain-of-function researches. These are medical researches that genetically alter an organism in a way that may enhance its biological functions.
In his recent book, Dr Huff stated, "China knew from day one that this was a genetically engineered agent." He further added, "EcoHealth Alliance and foreign laboratories did not have the adequate control measures in place for ensuring proper biosafety, biosecurity, and risk management, ultimately resulting in the lab leak at the Wuhan Institute of Virology."
The author further added, "The US government is to blame for the transfer of dangerous biotechnology to the Chinese," adding, "I was terrified by what I saw. We were just handing them bioweapon technology."

Dr Huff further claimed, "Nobody should be surprised that the Chinese lied about the outbreak of SARS-CoV-2 and then went to extraordinary lengths to make it appear as if the disease naturally emerged. The shocking part of all of this is how the United States government lied to all of us."
The author also suggested, "EcoHealth Alliance developed SARS-CoV-2 and was responsible for the development of the agent SARS-CoV-2 during my employment at the organisation."
"At the time, I felt like the project seemed more like intelligence collection than scientific research and development," he claimed in his book.
The epidemiologist also wrote, "I was concerned that EcoHealth Alliance did not have enough visibility or firsthand knowledge of what was happening at foreign laboratories contracted and managed by EcoHealth Alliance. It could be reasonably argued that EcoHealth Alliance set up China to fail."
The doctor further reported, "It is my belief that people working within the US government potentially identified me as a risk to knowing firsthand that the SARS-CoV-2 disease emergence event was a consequence of the US government's sponsorship of the genetic engineering of SARS-CoV-2 domestically and abroad."
He further added, "If I would have accepted the position, then I suspect that DARPA would have disclosed restricted information to me, which would have consequently prevented me from discussing any of this information publicly, like I have been and am doing now."
Dr Huff further said, "About a month after the pandemic began, and I was adamant that SARS-CoV-2 was a manmade agent, I suddenly realized what the potential motivation and persistence for recruiting me were. The intelligence community realized that I was the only person in a senior position that had left EHA, and the fact I was working outside the government's control made me a threat to their agenda."
