Coronavirus: Who is fooled by viral Fake News?
By David Heilbron Price, EurDemocracy.com
My question to the EU Commission press conference:
“Coronavirus 19 broke out in Wuhan, China in November 2019.
What does the EU research conclude about its origin? Is it natural or artificial? The Chinese reports have proved unreliable. (See WHO Tweet).
China blames the USA. https://qz.com/1817736/china-fuels-coronavirus-conspiracy-theory-blaming-us-army/ “
Chinese Spokesperson Zhao Lijian tweets that the USA brought Coronavirus to Wuham in October 2019 during the Military Games.
The WHO tweet of 14 January 2020 denied that the virus was contagious for humans. This was based on Chinese data. (The Chinese were already destroying evidence to the contrary!) The origin of the virus? China blamed bats as food, not the high security Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Then Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian tweeted that it might be the US military that brought the Coronavirus to Wuhan during the October 2019 Military World Games.
That in itself reveals a massive secret about the origin and spread and specifically who is to blame for today’s global problem.
As with a plane crash, investigation is important for the public to know how this incident occurred so that such an event can be avoided in the future.
Why do so many officials want to hush up this question of governmental responsibility, while admitting that airline firms need to go through the same process when accidental manslaughter is concerned? Are governments, including Communist governments, above the law?
The Commission’s answer:
“The first thing I obviously would like to stress here is that the Commission continues to follow the advice of the WHO and the ECDC, the European Centre for Disease prevention and Control. Both WHO and ECDC indicate that on 31 December 2019 a cluster of pneumonia cases of unknown cause was reported in Wuhan, China. On 9 January 2020 the Chinese authorities reported a new Corona virus as the cause of the outbreak. This being said, the Coronavirus pandemic is a global pandemic. We are talking about viruses here. Viruses do not have nationalities. These viruses do not respect borders. What is important here is global cooperation and international solidarity to combat the threat and mitigate the short- and long-term impact of the virus. Apportioning blame will not help a single person. As the EU, we are focusing on helping our citizens and people and countries in need. Regarding transmission, at this stage it is not possible to determine precisely how humans in China got infected. More research, which is on-going, will help us determine this. It is just announced that the Commission is providing €40.5 million for 18 projects to advance our understanding of the Coronavirus and to contribute to more efficient clinical maintenance of patients infected with the virus and contribute to public health preparedness and response to the outbreak.”
Let’s examine the implications of this answer.
The Chinese notified WHO on 31 December. But before this there were dozens of cases.
Here is the chronology from the New York Times. It too starts with Chinese notification to the World Health Organisation, WHO, on 31 December 2019. Why? At that date China had not banned western journalists in China.
It was not until 11 January that the Chinese reported the first death — a 61-year old who had chronic liver and abdominal disease. Was this the first case? Did the Chinese previously already know about the virus as a lethal problem?
This date was just days before the Chinese New Year, the Year of the Rat — a time of mass movement of the population. If there was one death, would this be the reason that the Chinese Communist authorities later decreed a lock-down of Wuhan, a city of 11 millions?
The danger must have been obvious. Just over a week later on 21 January other countries were hit. The United States, Japan, South Korea and Thailand notified the WHO that the disease had spread abroad to them. Hiding or controlling it within China was no longer an option. Human-to-human contagion could not be covered over with communist propaganda. Americans don’t eat bats.
The 61-year old Chinese who died was described by the Chinese as someone who frequented the Wuhan market where bats are sold as comestible. Scientists also knew that bats are both a reservoir and a vector of corona viruses. They can contain many corona viruses without being affected themselves. They present a great danger to the public, as scientific papers published over the last decade or more warned of their massive danger for pandemics.
But was the outbreak due to bats? Some doctors say some of the first victims did not frequent the Wuhan market. If the Chinese Communist government had acted sooner deaths could have been cut to a fraction. But the death rate increased from scores to multiple hundreds a day. More worryingly, Chinese doctors who warned of the seriousness of the outbreak suddenly disappeared. The WHO chief eulogised China inordinately.
How serious was the outbreak? Chinese are required by law to carry personal cell phones indicating their level of health. A shock came when this years stats were released. During February, 21 million phone users disappeared, The Epoch Times reported.
China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) announced on March 19 the number of phone users in each province in February. Compared with the previous announcement, which was released on Dec. 18, 2019, for November 2019 data, both cellphone and landline users dropped dramatically. In the same period the year before, the number of users increased.
The number of cellphone users decreased from 1.600957 billion to 1.579927 billion, a drop of 21.03 million. The number of landline users decreased from 190.83 million to 189.99 million, a drop of 840,000.
The landline phones decreased by a much smaller amount — indicating that some businesses were closed. What happened to the 21 million? All Chinese are legally obliged to register their cell phones and be controlled by the Chinese Communist Party. If only a tenth of this figure is due to Covid-19 deaths then it amounts to millions, not the 3000 official deaths the Chinese admit to. Surely the EU research projects could check what is behind the mystery of the missing millions. The taxpayers have a right to know.
Date of Origin.
Chinese Spokesman Zhao Lijian made a Freudian error. When he blamed the US Military for the Coronavirus outbreak on USA, he unconsciously made everyone aware that he knew when the outbreak started. It was autumn 2019.
When did US take part in the 7th Military World Games in Wuhan, together with over a hundred other nations? In October 2019.
When did they finish? 27 October 2019.
When did China say the first death occurred? 11 January 2020 — two months later. Long after the US and hundreds of other national groups had left Wuhan! Just days after the Chinese announcement, President Trump, known to be a germaphobe, announced a travel ban, much to the protest of his US and international opposition. It turned out to be a wise move. But many Chinese moved to Italy and Spain, President Trump said.
Spokesman Zhao Lijian’s story does not jibe with the later Communist party story. Or the facts.
In December Chinese doctors were already battling with the novel form of Coronavirus, which they said was as dangerous as SARS, or even more dangerous. Dr Ai Fen spoke out about it in December and was told to stop this ‘fake news‘. She received an ‘unprecedented, extremely harsh reprimand‘ for ‘illegally spreading untruthful information online.’
A colleague Dr Li Wenliang warned about the fatal nature of the new virus. He was silenced and told to revoke all he had told others including those in the West. By the first week of February 2020 he was dead of virus at 34 years. In an article recently Dr Ai regretted she had not continued to speak out. The article has since disappeared– as has Dr Ai.
Cases were coming into the hospitals that had nothing to do with later cover story of the Wuhan wet market with its bats. Technicians analysed the genetic sequencing. Then on 27 December they were told to destroy all evidence and samples!
This was revealed on the reputed Australian TV programme 60 Minutes. The US Pulitzer-prize winning virology journalist Laurie Garrett calls the missing doctors ‘heroes‘.
The lunar New Year occurred on 25 January. This festival involves the largest movement of people on earth as families are re-united. But instead of stopping people, the Chinese government let an estimated 5 million people leave Wuhan alone. Neighbouring countries were immediately hit.
The medical Journal, The Lancet, said:
Had China allowed physician Li Wenliang and his brave Wuhan colleagues to convey their suspicions ,,, without risking sanction, and had local officials not for weeks released false epidemic information to the world, we might not now be facing a pandemic.
After two months, China has declared an end to the lock-down.
The Wuhan wet market re-opened for business on 30 March.
