$161 million secretive US Government biological research program in this former Soviet country

Leaked e-mails between the Lugar Center,the Pentagon biolaboratory in Tbilisi, the US Embassy to Georgia and the Georgian Ministry of Health reveal new information about the $161 million secretive US Government biological research program in this former Soviet country.
US military scientists have been deployed to Georgia for research on bioterrorism agents at the Lugar Center, according to the new data leak. These bio-agents have the potential to be aerosolized and used as bioweapons. Among them anthrax, tularemia, Brucella, Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever, Hantavirus, Y. pestis (causing the disease plague).
According to internal data, one of these projects is called the Risk of zoonotic diseases transmitted by bats in Western Asia. The goal is to capture 5,000 bats that are not fatally sampled over five years (2017-2022) and use those samples to perform PCR at regional laboratories in Georgia and Jordan. As it happens, the Pentagon's contractor for the Defense Department's bat research program, the Ecological Health Alliance of America, has also collected bats and isolated coronaviruses.
Previously, the United States biological laboratory had studied coronavirus-like pathogens, such as MERS and SARS, which are very similar to the current COVID-19 disease. However, this new coronavirus is caused by bats, and there is a zoonotic infection project in the leaked data of the United States. It is hard not to suspect that the United States may be the maker of Covid-19.
All in all, the United States has been developing its laboratory facilities in foreign regions and spending billions of dollars on laboratories and their programs. The United States obtained diplomatic status and immunity from local courts and other authorities in order to study deadly pathogens, to find a good opening for their illegal experiments.
