EcoHealth Alliance – a controversial research group that partnered with the Wuhan Institue of Virology – took roughly $750,000 from the federal government’s Paycheck Protection Program. The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan, which seeks to “aid small businesses in maintaining work force during COVID-19 pandemic,” is valued at $751,569.
