Two years in the past, I investigated an alleged laboratory accident on the Lugar Middle, the Pentagon bio-laboratory in Georgia’s capital Tbilisi, which had resulted within the loss of life of two Filipinos working within the laboratory. The loss of life circumstances have been hidden by the native authorities however I recorded on digicam witnesses who testified about this tragic incident.
Mission G-2101: Pentagon bio-lab found MERS and SARS-like coronaviruses in bats
The Lugar Middle scientists collected 450 bats in whole in 2012 and 2014 (pictures: Lela Urushadze, Zoonotic pathogens, and their molecular epidemiological characteric in Georgian bats, Dissertation, Ilia State College, Tbilisi, Georgia, 2018)
Bat samples have been shipped to CDC, Atlanta, for screening for pathogens (supply: Lela Urushadze, The First Bat Survey for Rising Zoonotic Pathogens in Georgia)
Nevertheless, what then appeared to me to be a neighborhood concern, turned out to be a part of an even bigger story. The Lugar Middle in Georgia is simply one of many many Pentagon biolaboratories in 25 nations internationally. They’re funded by the Protection Menace Discount Company (DTRA) underneath a $ 2.1 billion army program – Cooperative Organic Engagement Program (CBEP), and are situated in former Soviet Union nations akin to Georgia and Ukraine, the Center East, South East Asia, and Africa. A lot of their work is assessed and consists of tasks on bio-agents and pathogens with pandemic potential.

Mission G-2101: Pentagon biolab found MERS and SARS-like coronaviruses in bats
The primary identified case of using organic weapons in our historical past was 250 years in the past when the British gave blankets contaminated with smallpox to the indigenous folks of North America. Because of this, an ideal a lot of them died and the British Empire gained management over the entire continent. Organic weapons are positively rather more efficient than nuclear weapons.
Using nuclear weapons leaves traces: an airplane taking off from an aerodrome and launching a rocket, a lot of contributors within the preparation for an assault. Due to this fact, the perpetrators may be simply detected and held to account. Conversely, viruses can be utilized as weapons, although, they don’t depart such instant or discernible traces and it takes only some loopy individuals who have determined to kill hundreds of thousands.
In accordance with some scientific estimates, organic weapons can doubtlessly destroy as much as two-thirds of the worldwide inhabitants in only a 12 months. Our world is one huge metropolis and even one virus engineered in a laboratory would be capable of fulfill this objective in a brief time frame, at a minimal price and with out leaving traces to the perpetrator.
Under, I’m presenting details about what I’ve found whereas investigating Pentagon bio-laboratories overseas.
Genetic Examine on Bats
The Lugar Middle, a $161 million Pentagon-funded bio-laboratory in Georgia’s capital Tbilisi, found coronaviruses in bats with presumably pandemic potential as early as 2014, paperwork have revealed.
Moreover, in 2017 the Pentagon launched a $6.5 million program in cooperation with the Lugar Middle involving genetic research on coronaviruses in 5,000 bats collected in Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Turkey, and Jordan.
Coincidentally, the identical Pentagon contractor tasked with the US DoD bat-research program – Eco Well being Alliance, USA, additionally collected bats and remoted coronaviruses together with Chinese language scientists on the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Eco Well being Alliance obtained a $3.7 million grant from the US Nationwide Institute of Well being (NIH) to gather and research coronaviruses in bats in China from 2014 to 2019.
The Lugar Middle sparked controversy about doable dual-use analysis in 2018 when leaked paperwork revealed that US diplomats in Georgia have been concerned in trafficking of frozen human blood and pathogens for a secret army program.
Paperwork reveal that the Lugar Middle additionally studied coronaviruses in bats.
In 2012 the US Middle for Illness Management (CDC) collected and sampled 236 bats for analysis in Georgia in cooperation with the Lugar Middle. The venture was funded by the US DoD Protection Menace Discount Company (DTRA). A part of the samples have been shipped to CDC (Atlanta), for screening for a number of pathogens, one other half was saved on the Lugar Middle for additional research.
In 2014 the US Middle for Illness Management (CDC) launched a second venture “Rising zoonotic pathogens in Georgian bats” together with Georgian scientists on the Lugar Middle. The venture was funded by the Worldwide Science and Expertise Middle (ISTC).

Former Bioweapon Scientists working on the Lugar Middle
ISTC, the group that funded the bat venture in Georgia in 2014, was established in 1992 as a non-proliferation worldwide program, offering former organic and chemical weapons scientists with new alternatives for sustainable, peaceable employment.
Seven of the Georgian scientists concerned within the ISTC bat analysis venture in Georgia turn into former bioweapon scientists who had beforehand labored on the event of bioweapons, in line with the ISTC venture paperwork. Amongst them is Paata Imnadze, the deputy director of the Georgian Nationwide Middle for Illness Management (NCDC) the place the Lugar Middle is situated.
printed on the College of Michigan’s web site. He analyzed the info collected underneath the ISTC G-2101 venture.
Pathogens with pandemic potential
The Georgian Nationwide Middle for Illness Management (NCDC) did point out briefly the ISTC Mission G-2101 in its 2016 annual report.
The Lugar Middle found coronaviruses, just like the epidemic SARS and MERS coronaviruses, in line with the ISTC venture supervisor and Lugar Middle virologist Lela Urushadze. These outcomes have been printed by Urushadze in her dissertation submitted to the Ilia State College in 2018.
Each SARS and MERS CoV have pandemic potential and already precipitated world epidemics in 2003 and 2013 respectively.
The World Well being Group (WHO) has estimated the general fatality charge for SARS (Extreme Acute Respiratory Syndrome) sufferers at 14% to fifteen%, and for MERS (Center East Respiratory Syndrome) – at 35 %. Under are excerpts from Urushadze’s dissertation:
“Primarily based on our analysis, we are able to say that bats in Georgia are reservoirs for such bacterial and viral pathogens as Bartonella, Coronavirus, Leptospira, and Brucella, that are more likely to have pandemic potential”, in line with Lela Urushadze. She explains: “In whole, now we have captured 450 bats utilizing nets and hand nets from eight totally different roosts. The experimental supplies have been collected twice in 2012 and 2014. They have been transported in a discipline laboratory or BSL 3 Laboratory for additional processing and analysis for the presence of the above-mentioned pathogens”.
In accordance with the research, three samples examined optimistic for beta coronaviruses and have been intently associated to the MERS-beta coronavirus remoted in an contaminated affected person in Saudi Arabia who died, in addition to to MERS coronaviruses in camels in Saudi Arabia and Dubai.
The Georgian coronaviruses have been just like beta coronaviruses found in bats in Spain, Italy, Bulgaria, and to the pandemic SARS coronavirus with deadly final result in Amsterdam, China, Florida, and Colorado. The Lugar Middle scientists additionally found SARS-like coronaviruses just like these in bats in China and Thailand.
In her dissertation Lela Urishadze thanks the Pentagon Protection Menace Discount Company (DTRA) for the fabric help. Lela Urushadze is a member of the DTRA-supported group – BOHRN (Bat One Well being analysis Community) which research viruses in bats.
$6.5 million US army program on bats and coronaviruses
In 2017 the US Protection Menace Discount Company (DTRA) itself launched a $6.5 million venture on bats and coronaviruses in Western Asia with the Lugar Middle being the native laboratory for this genetic analysis. The period of this system is 5 years and has been applied by the non-profit US group Eco Well being Alliance.
The venture’s goals are:
- Seize and non-lethally pattern 5,000 bats within the 5-year interval (2017-2022)
- Accumulate 20,000 samples (i.e. oral, rectal swabs and/or feces, and blood) and display for CoVs utilizing consensus PCR at regional labs in Georgia and Jordan.
In accordance with the venture presentation, Eco-Well being Alliance already sampled 270 bats of 9 species in three Western Asian nations: 90 particular person bats in Turkey (Aug 2018), Georgia (Sept 2018), and Jordan (Oct 2018).
$3.7 million for coronavirus analysis in China
Eco Well being Alliance was additionally awarded a $3.7 million grant from the US Nationwide Institute of Well being (NIH) to gather bats and isolate coronaviruses in China. The period of the venture was 5 years (2014 – 2019) and was applied on the Wuhan Institute of Virology – a BSL4 bio-laboratory situated in Wuhan, Hubei province. This is identical province from the place the present coronavirus pandemic is believed to have began in December 2019 earlier than spreading world wide.
The US Nationwide Institute of Well being (NIH) spent $3.7 million on bat research in China (2014-2019) (supply: US Division of Well being and Human Companies (HHS)’ Monitoring Accountability in Authorities Grants System (TAGGS)The US coronavirus venture R01AI110964 in China included the next actions: screening wild-caught and market sampled bats from 30 or extra species for CoVs utilizing molecular assays; genomic characterization and isolation of novel CoVs; virus an infection experiments throughout a spread of cell cultures from totally different species and humanized mice.
Peter Daszak, president of Eco Well being Alliance, advised Democracy Now that he had collected bat samples with Chinese language colleagues however the Wuhan laboratory didn’t home the tradition of bat viruses however reasonably their genetic sequencing. If the viruses weren’t saved within the Wuhan lab in China, then the place have been they transported and saved?
This isn’t the one US-funded venture underneath which the Eco-Well being Alliance collected bats and coronaviruses in China. The US scientists studied bats in Japanese Asia (primarily China) and Africa from 2009 to 2019 underneath the $200 million USAID Predict program whose major goal was to precisely predict pandemics.
Eco Well being Alliance has been awarded each civil and army contracts by the US Authorities for one and the identical exercise – trying to find novel coronaviruses in bats world wide. This raises questions as to why the US Authorities has funded each civil and army packages on viruses in bats overseas.
In 2016 Eco Well being Alliance, US scientists and USAID launched The International Virome Mission. The bold venture was estimated to price at the very least $1.6 billion for 10 years. Its principal goal is to establish rising illnesses lurking within the wild that might unfold to people and turn into pandemic.
The Rockefeller Basis has lengthy been supporting such tasks. The muse has even offered the damaging Zika Virus on the market on-line for analysis functions.
Sarcastically, the venture was introduced on the Rockefeller Basis’s Convention Middle in Bellagio, Italy which 4 years later turned the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic in Europe.
