More evidence for the ties between Hunter Biden-funded Ukraine DoD subcontractor Metabiota, Peter Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance and the US government has emerged. 8 Metabiota employees and 14 employees of EcoHealth are members of EcoHealth’s Predict Global Consortium.
PREDICT was initiated in 2009 to “strengthen global capacity for detection and discovery of viruses with pandemic potential that can move between animals and people” the website states, including “coronaviruses, the family to which SARS and MERS belong.” The project is part of USAID’s Emerging Pandemic Threats program and was led by the UC Davis One Health Institute, the website states.
On Monday, the commander of Russia’s Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Defense Forces, Lieutenant General Igor Kirillov, presented documents originating with the Pentagon’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), identifying eight more individuals involved in the US-funded research in Ukraine, RT reports: “Among the names Kirillov singled out was Karen Saylors of Labyrinth Global Health, previously of Metabiota, a company linked to US President Joe Biden’s son Hunter.”
Karen Saylors is also a member of USAID/EcoHealth’s Predict team and conducted bat coronavirus research with Metabiota’s Nathan Wolfe as recently as 2022: “Targeted genomic sequencing with probe capture for discovery and surveillance of coronaviruses in bats“. Saylors and Peter Daszak were co-authors of “Predicting the potential for zoonotic transmission and host associations for novel viruses” along with Zhengli Shi of the Wuhan Istitute of Virology 2022.
Saylors and Daszak both worked on “Socializing One Health: an innovative strategy to investigate social and behavioral risks of emerging viral threats” 2021.
Saylors has published with Ariful Islam, W. B. Karesh, Marc Valitutto, Ava Sullivan,Catherine Machalaba, Emily Hagan and Peter Daszak of EcoHealth Alliance, Bradley S Schneider, U. Tamoufem Joseph Fair and Corina Monagin of Metabiota, and Ronald Burke of the United States Army Global Emerging Infections Surveillance & Response System according to ResearchGate.
According to Kirillov, the Russian military has recovered more than 20,000 documents and other materials related to the biological programs in Ukraine, while interviewing eyewitnesses and participants. The evidence “confirms the focus of the Pentagon on creating biological weapons components and testing them on the population of Ukraine and other states along [Russia’s] borders.”
The Biden family was invested in a company tied to biolabs in Ukraine that is also closely tied to Peter Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance and Shi Zhengli and the Wuhan Institue of Virology.
