On April 24, 2021, The U.K. Daily Mail published an online article entitled Worrying new clues about the origins of Covid: How scientists at Wuhan lab helped Chinese army in secret project to find animal viruses, writes IAN BIRRELL.  In his article, Birrell makes an unsurprising association between the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) of the Communist Party of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and the genesis of the SARS-CoV-2 virus producing the pandemic disease COVID-19.  The PLA’s involvement in this pandemic’s creation and evolution raises the inevitable question:  Was the SARS-CoV-2 virus a natural product of legitimate if ethically questionable gain-of-function research, or was it an intentional creation by the PRC in its plan to use biowarfare in becoming the dominant world power?

Since COVID-19’s appearance in the United States and its territories, nearly all of the information reaching us, the general public, has come from the US’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the US National Institute of Health’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).

But as OpenCdA noted almost seven years ago in our post dated October 20, 2014, and entitled Why Only Now?, the CDC and NIAID are not the only agencies of the US government with a deep scientific interest in infectious diseases.  The United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) is the preeminent US government agency in the study of the military application of infectious diseases as weapons of war.   Its mission is to “Provide leading edge medical capabilities to deter and defend against current and emerging biological threat agents.”

Though you probably haven’t heard much about or from USAMRIID during this pandemic, here is a link to one of the very few USAMRIID press releases about its far more extensive involvement in trying to put an end to the COVID-19 threat.  The release from USAMRIID’s Public Affairs Officer Caree Vander Linden is entitled Unique Army Lab Answers the Nation’s Call in Supporting COVID-19 Outbreak.

Here’s a little bit more “general interest” information about USAMRIID.
