Rubio, Marshall Launches Inquiry into State Department Panel with EcoHealth Alliance

Dec 22, 2022 | Press Releases

An employee of the U.S. Department of State recently participated on a panel discussing the origins of COVID-19 alongside EcoHealth Alliance, a non-profit with ties to the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China. 
U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL), Roger Marshall (R-KS), and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) sent a letter to U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken criticizing the State Department’s participation given EcoHealth Alliance’s lack of transparency regarding the origins of COVID-19.

  • “The U.S. Department of State’s endorsement of new science favoring a natural origin of SARS-CoV-2 is troubling, particularly since the State Department has not retracted its Fact Sheet….” 
  • “EcoHealth was in optimal position to assist with research into the COVID-19 origins due to its pre-pandemic work in Wuhan, China, but instead of contributing to the efforts, it obstructed the U.S. Government’s investigation through its refusal to provide documents, statements, research materials and unpublished bat coronavirus specimen data.”
