Former vice president of EcoHealth Alliance Dr. Andrew Huff says that he worked closely with the Wuhan Institute of Virology lab in China and he knows that COVID was genetically engineered and leaked. 

Huff says that COVID was "one of the greatest cover-ups in history" and the "biggest US intelligence failure since 9/11."

Whistleblower Dr. Huff wrote a book titled The Truth About Wuhan in which he claims that the COVID-19 pandemic happened because of the U.S. government's funding of genetic engineering of coronaviruses in China. 

"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," he wrote in his book. An exclusive pre-release was given to The Sun Online. 

Dr. Huff wrote in his book that China knew from day one that this was a "genetically engineered agent." Huff, an epidemiologist and army veteran who worked for EcoHealth Alliance from 2014 to 2016, said it was China's gain-of-function experiments  and shoddy biosecurity that led to the lab leak at the U.S.-funded lab. 

"The US government is to blame for the transfer of dangerous biotechnology to the Chinese," he told The Sun Online. 

Dr. Huff wrote in his book that "greedy scientists killed millions of people globally" and the U.S. government helped cover it up.

The book is set to be released Dec. 6, 2022.
