1. Project 1742 (EcoHealth/DTRA)
Risks of bat-borne zoonotic diseases in Western Asia

Duration: 24/10/2018-23 /10/2019

Funding: $71,500
2. Bat Virus Database
Access to the database is limited only to those scientists participating in our ‘Bats and Coronaviruses’ project
Our intention is to eventually open up this database to the larger scientific community
3. EcoHealth Alliance & DTRA Asking for Trouble
One Health research project focused on characterizing bat diversity, bat coronavirus diversity and the risk of bat-borne zoonotic disease emergence in the region.
4. Phelps, Olival, Epstein, Karesh - EcoHealth/DTRA
5, Methods and Expected Outcomes
(Unexpected Outcome = New Coronavirus Pandemic)
7. Even the so-called "professional" bat researchers working for EcoHealth often fail to use proper PPE (masks, suits), despite being well aware of the risks of infection from bats since 2013, Here is Kendra Philips and her local colleagues
8. Some "wows" have animated me to add more tweets ;)
Bat Researchers have known since 2013 about bat to human direct transmission of viruses
Here is the full advice from "SEABCRU" prepared by Kevin Olival in Pnomh Penh 2013, updated 2015
9. The Full guidance for PPE is listed carefully under three sets, A, B and C.

12. Many more similar stories
Infection and Death from European Bat Lissavirus (EBL)
A sad time for bats and bat biologists
13. On May 23, 2012, Assistant Professor Dr. Björn Martin Siemers died as a result of an infection, within only a few hours, and just two days before his 40th birthday.
14. More stories
Bats can infect humans with Rabies, Marburg, Nipah and many other viruses, some known others unknown.

16. General Official Advice:
Has always been "Never handle a bat with bare hands. Use thick gloves or call a bat removal expert to help you remove bats from your house"
But let's look at the so-called experts!
Please observe the hands...
17. The PPE Flow Chart for Bat Researchers
The details for each set (A, B, C) can be found in a previous tweet in this thread or here:
18. Now let's take a look at the Bat Researchers in action
1. Covered Arms - No!
2. Respirator/N95 Mask - No!
3. Gloves - No!
That is Kendra Phelps from EcoHealth showing us how not to follow their own advice, putting our lives at risk with our tax money, thanks to Fauci & Daszak
19. More Bat Research without Gloves
20. And more!
21. Half Way There, Professor!
22. Bare Arms!
23. The Reality of Bat Research in Yunnan
24. The Ecohealth/WIV Photo-shoots for the Media
25. Daszak's Propaganda Show
26. This what we know and what they know
27. What we know they do and how they do it

1. Thread: RaTG13 Real or Fake?
A Norwegian Scientist @Vehuardo recently claimed RaTG13 is an "authentic virus"
This failed to take into account the work of our DRASTIC colleagues & other published analyses.
This thread is a polite attempt to educate.
2. news-medical.net/news/20200910/…
which says RaTG13 doesn't make sense on how it was sequenced, or how the data got so messed up in the lab as to include copy paste mistakes, bat dna, pangolin dna, rice dna, mice dna, & nobody should use it to form conclusions until it's properly vetted
2 (cont)
"sequence is incomplete & provided segment doesn't function. The identified markers suggest partial match basis & actual virus itself as described by the sequence can't functionally exist due to incoherent structures that appear to be the result of sample contamination" Image
