JUST IN: Google is being accused of funding COVID-19 research conducted by Peter Daszak, a scientist who is linked to Wuhan. On the other hand, the research was also made possible by Dasza's charity called EcoHealth Alliance.
This is currently a major issue since some scientists and other medical experts still believe that China has something to do with the current ongoing COVID-19 virus.
"It's honestly one of the biggest scandals for, I don't know, a hundred years," said Steve Hilton, a political commentator and former political adviser of Britain.
"It's a really shocking story, and it just adds to this increasingly big mountain of evidence that we have got a massive establishment cover-up going on because the people at the heart of this know what they did," he added.
Google Funds Wuhan-Linked Scientist's Study?
According to The Daily Mail UK's latest report, the tech giant firm is listed among the funding companies of the COVID-19 study called "Identification of GBV-D, a Novel GB-like Flavivirus from Old World Frugivorous Bats (Pteropus giganteus) in Bangladesh."

With this study, Daszak was already removed from the COVID-19 commission, which is currently looking into the origins of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
However, the 2019 research project did not specify the exact amount released by Google for the study. Aside from this, another herpes-focused study, which was published in 2015, was also allegedly funded by the search engine giant.
Google is not the only one who is allegedly funding COVID-19 studies. Hilton claimed that other tech firms did not mention, which are helping researchers that try to hide the exact origin of the COVID-19.
Why Google's Funding Is A Serious Matter
Hilton explained, via Fox News' report, that Google has been trying to direct people towards the so-called natural origin of COVID-19.
However, the tech giant firm and other companies failed to find strong proof. He also accused of YouTube, a division of Google, of doing the same thing.
As of the moment, the investigation is still ongoing. The best thing to do is wait for experts' announcements, especially since the true origin of COVID-19 is not yet identified.
