As you read this keep in mind that China has one Level 4 microbiology lab that is outfitted to study/develop deadly viruses like coronaviruses. Oh, and it’s located in Wuhan.
(NY Post) At an emergency meeting in Beijing held last Friday, Chinese leader Xi Jinping spoke about the need to contain the coronavirus and set up a system to prevent similar epidemics in the future.
A national system to control biosecurity risks must be put in place “to protect the people’s health,” Xi said, because lab safety is a “national security” issue.
Xi didn’t actually admit that the coronavirus now devastating large swaths of China had escaped from one of the country’s bioresearch labs. But the very next day, evidence emerged suggesting that this is exactly what happened, as the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology released a new directive titled: “Instructions on strengthening biosecurity management in microbiology labs that handle advanced viruses like the novel coronavirus.”
Read that again. It sure sounds like China has a problem keeping dangerous pathogens in test tubes where they belong, doesn’t it? And just how many “microbiology labs” are there in China that handle “advanced viruses like the novel coronavirus”?
It turns out that in all of China, there is only one. And this one is located in the Chinese city of Wuhan that just happens to be … the epicenter of the epidemic.
So, with only one lab in the entire country, why did the Communist Chinese government first tell us that the coronavirus mutated in a food market?
How many lives could have been saved had we been told the truth and health officials been able to respond more appropriately? How much mayhem could have been avoided?
A faster response may have avoided the panic that sent the global markets crashing today…
Or is that what China wanted?
Their military occupation of Hong Kong is no longer dominating the news. Every thousand points the DJIA drops makes whoever the Democrats run in November more likely to be elected.
History tells us that Mao killed tens of millions of his countrymen to make the Great Leap Forward.
What’s the death of 10,000, 100,000 or even 1,000,000 people relative to stopping President Trump from decoupling America’s dependence on Chinese manufacturing?
It’s worth contemplating whether China has come too far in its quest for world domination to worry about the fallout from a pandemic…
Afterall, they also have the pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities, nearly 80% of the entire world’s market, to hold every other country hostage for the cure.
