As the world continues to attempt survival under varying forms of social distancing and lock-down measures, the question arises as to just how we got to this point…
How did a virus bring the global economy to its knees while threatening death in all ages of our population and to a toll not seen by a disease in recent history?
Where does the Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 come from? Why is it so deadly? How are we going to survive COVID-19 and pandemics like these in the future?
One critical piece of information that could vastly assist in answering some of those questions is the precise origin of the SARS-CoV-2 virus as this might give us a better understanding of how to prevent or at least react to these issues in the future (and perhaps help us to better handle the current pandemic).
The obvious initial thought is that “China” is the source of the virus considering that the initially reported cases were there, and while the answer of “China” is undisputedly correct and well agreed upon (aside from the actual mechanism of inception), we need to know a little more than that.
What is the exact biological source? What is the exact geographical source? How does the virus cross species and mutate? The answers to these, along with a host of other questions might help us to better understand how these things happen in our world as they threaten to destroy it.
A probably more important question however is one that’s not politically correct to ask in this day and age considering that Trump catches hell for even calling COVID-19 a “Chinese disease” – which it no doubt IS (but more importantly if the disease had originated in the U.S., the world would be calling it the “American disease”) – and that question is did the SARS-CoV-2 virus escape from a Chinese virus research center?
The mystery around where this virus began came from early on in the crises when it became evident that some of the first patients had not ever been to the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market in Wuhan, China. This was perplexing as the initial story that China was selling was that the epicenter of the outbreak was specifically that market – suggesting some sort of cross-species transmission due to the different types of animals being sold there (not just seafood), the unsanitary conditions, or both.
This seemed plausible enough, since we know how dirty some of these open air markets in Asia can be, however what didn’t make sense was that the Chinese eventually realized that their best early estimate at a patient zero (the first human suspected to have had the virus) was someone showing COVID-19 symptoms as early as December 01, who’d had zero contact with the seafood market…
“The researchers, seven of whom work at Wuhan’s Jinyintan hospital…revealed on Friday in The Lancet medical journal that symptoms of the new disease were first reported on December 1…”
“…the first patient had no exposure to the Huanan seafood market…”
Later research discounted the initially suspected patient zero and suggested an even earlier start with therefore an even higher chance that the source was in fact NOT the seafood market with a case identified to have existed in Hubei as early as November 17th. This corresponds with internal U.S. government intelligence reports that worryingly showed a contagion loose in the Wuhan area in November.
First, it should be clear that China has obviously not been 100% truthful to the world with regards to just about any aspect of this pandemic. They were not honest about when it started, about how severe it was as it got going there, and certainly not honest about the total numbers of infected or dead. It’s a mathematical impossibility that China has had only the totals they claim considering they are the source of the outbreak and have hundreds of millions of people at a high risk due to proximity and standard of living. The entire thing reeks of a typical communist government cover-up (similar to N. Korea’s laughable reporting of zero cases until just very recently) and why should the cover-up be confined to just the statistics? Perhaps the origin itself is also something they weren’t entirely honest about…
It obviously seems to be too much of a coincidence that the regional epicenter of this pandemic is located in the exact same area as the Wuhan Institute of Virology, where China has been KNOWN to be studying coronaviruses since first publishing research findings in 2005 around the SARS epidemic.
Not only is WIV known to specialize in the study and handling of “bat viruses”, but according to U.S. government communications from January of 2018 they’ve been doing so in an unsafe manner which:
“…represented a risk of a new SARS-like pandemic…”
“…during interactions with scientists at the WIV laboratory, they noted the new lab has a serious shortage of appropriately trained technicians and investigators needed to safely operate this high-containment laboratory…”
Looking back at the history of this research center, the building of WIV’s National Bio-safety Laboratory (the ‘biosafety level 4’ area where coronaviruses are studied) was done in collaboration with the French and partially funded by the United States… It doesn’t take too long to connect the dots and show that organizations in France and the U.S. with the long-term experience and capability to study these viruses safely and without letting them loose on the public quickly enabled China’s WIV lab to handle deadly pathogens without them having the same experience and discipline necessary to contain said ‘virii’.
This would be similar to dressing a monkey in a fine London-made suit. At first he looks handsome, but before long his inability to operate in such clothing becomes evident as the suit is torn and stained due to the monkey acting like…a monkey. Unfortunately, helping to provide the Chinese with the facilities and equipment to study viruses resulted in a mismatch of skill sets to severity, and thousands have now died globally and the world economy has been put into a state of arrest rather than us just having a stained and ripped suit to show for the mistake…
Currently, evidence doesn’t necessarily point to the Chinese having bio-engineered this virus, but more to them having accelerated its evolution as a result of it being under study, and then very stupidly releasing it into the world due to sheer negligence and incompetence.
SARS-CoV-2 and other coronaviruses are known to originate in horseshoe bats living a thousand miles away from Wuhan in Yunnan, China. While scientists seem to agree that there must’ve been some intermediary animal(s) between the bats and humans, it still seems unlikely that the virus would’ve transitioned to humans a clean thousand miles from its original biological source. In fact, we are fairly certain that this didn’t happen and that the only reasonable and obvious alternative is that the virus “escaped” from the research center in Wuhan.
Further evidence pointing to this is that WIV does in fact work with the closest known relative of SARS-CoV-2 – a virus known as RaTG13 – and while the genetic differences between the two would suggest about 50 years of natural evolutionary separation, this in fact doesn’t clear WIV of being the source of the pandemic, but supports it. The laboratory study of viruses inherently causes mutations as they are cultured in petri dishes with cells having the human ACE2 receptor. This would over time create natural mutations but would do so at an unnatural rate, which would condense the creation of 50 years of natural evolutionary differences down to a much smaller span of time.
Nikolai Petrovsky, from the College of Medicine and Public Health at Flinders University in South Australia states:
“The result of these experiments is a virus that is highly virulent in humans but is sufficiently different that it no longer resembles the original bat virus… because the mutations are acquired randomly by selection, there is no signature of a human gene jockey, but this is clearly a virus still created by human intervention.”
Now for the real kicker… China not only halted exports of Personal Protective Equipment as they realized they would need what they were producing in order to handle the unfolding epidemic in their country (the numbers and severity of which they were vastly understating to the global community) BUT they ALSO began IMPORTING said material at the same time, effectively buying up as much PPE as they could as fast as possible before the world found out the true impact of COVID-19.
Let’s think about that a little further… as China was hitting the “oh shit” button while COVID-19 spread rapidly in their country, they not only halted their exports of PPE to ensure they had sufficient supplies for their medical workers and citizens, but they simultaneously started buying up the world stock as they intentionally lied about how deadly COVID-19 was so that unsuspecting countries would sell the PPE to China, each one completely unaware that they would soon need every single mask and set of gloves available themselves.
Effectively, the lying Chinese bastards made sure that they would have PPE and the rest of the world would not, thereby greatly exacerbating the impact of SARS-CoV-2 in every country in the world and therefore severely increasing the death toll outside of China…
China was the source of this virus, then used it against the world to the tune of more than likely hundreds of thousands of non-Chinese lives by the time this is over. If this behavior at a state level isn’t downright criminal, then what the hell is? These actions are the kind of thing that would trigger criminal charges to be leveled were they committed by individuals instead of a nation…
In conclusion, overwhelming evidence suggests that:
- China has unintentionally released the most contagious and deadly influenza virus the world has seen in a hundred years upon its own population and the world to the tune of millions of infected and hundreds of thousands of dead
- Through their research inadvertently accelerated the evolution of the virus to new heights of lethality
- Through their absolute and utter incompetence let the virus escape and wreak havoc on society and subsequently the world economy
- LIED TO THE WORLD ABOUT EVERY SINGLE DETAIL
- Reversed their PPE exports
- Bought up the world supply of PPE before other countries knew the severity of COVID-19 (you know, because China was lying about the lethality)
- Through all of these actions caused the death toll outside of China to be much higher than normal
It’s time to stop with the political correctness and openly demand China admit to their actions and it wouldn’t be a bad idea to demand financial reparations for the casualties, much like the U.S. state of Missouri is suing them for this debacle. China has proven they’re not advanced enough to handle researching diseases like this without killing massive numbers of people, and they’ve proven that when they screw up, they’ll lie to the world and INTENTIONALLY cause even more deaths than necessary. They’re literally killing people with their actions.
Someone please take the monkey out of the suit, and lock his ass up while we’re at it.
