Excerpts:

Chinese Researchers Conclude the Virus Originated Outside of China

After collecting samples of the genome in China, medical researchers first conclusively demonstrated that the virus did not originate at the seafood market but had multiple unidentified sources, after which it was exposed to the seafood market from where it spread everywhere.

According to the Global Times:

A new study by Chinese researchers indicates the novel coronavirus may have begun human-to-human transmission in late November from a place other than the Huanan seafood market in Wuhan.

The study published on ChinaXiv, a Chinese open repository for scientific researchers, reveals the new coronavirus was introduced to the seafood market from another location(s), and then spread rapidly from the market due to the large number of close contacts. The findings were the result of analyses of the genome data, sources of infection, and the route of spread of variations of the novel coronavirus collected throughout China.

The study believes that patient(s) zero transmitted the virus to workers or sellers at the Huanan seafood market, the crowded market easily facilitating further transmission of the virus to buyers, which caused a wider spread in early December 2019. (Global Times, February 22, 2020, emphasis added

Japan’s Media: The Coronavirus May Have Originated in the US

In February of 2020, the Japanese Asahi news report (print and TV) claimed the coronavirus originated in the US, not in China, and that some (or many) of the 14,000 American deaths attributed to influenza may have in fact have resulted from the coronavirus.

A report from a Japanese TV station disclosing a suspicion that some of those Americans may have unknowningly contracted the coronavirus has gone viral on Chinese social media, stoking fears and speculations in China that the novel coronavirus may have originated in the US.

The report, by TV Asahi Corporation of Japan, suggested that the US government may have failed to grasp how rampant the virus has gone on US soil.

However, it is unknown whether Americans who have already died of the influenza had contracted the coronavirus, as reported by TV Asahi. (People’s Daily, English, February 23, 2020, emphasis added)

Taiwan Virologist Suggests the Coronavirus Originated in the US

Then, Taiwan ran a TV news program on February,27,(click here to access video (Chinese), that presented diagrams and flow charts suggesting the coronavirus originated in the US. (6)

Below is a rough translation, summary and analysis of selected content of that newscast. (see map below)

The man in the video is a top virologist and pharmacologist who performed a long and detailed search for the source of the virus. He spends the first part of the video explaining the various haplotypes (varieties, if you will), and explains how they are related to each other, how one must have come before another, and how one type derived from another. He explains this is merely elementary science and nothing to do with geopolitical issues, describing how, just as with numbers in order, 3 must always follow 2.

One of his main points is that the type infecting Taiwan exists only in Australia and the US and, since Taiwan was not infected by Australians, the infection in Taiwan could have come only from the US.

The basic logic is that the geographical location with the greatest diversity of virus strains must be the original source because a single strain cannot emerge from nothing. He demonstrated that only the US has all the five known strains of the virus (while Wuhan and most of China have only one, as do Taiwan and South Korea, Thailand and Vietnam, Singapore, and England, Belgium and Germany), constituting a thesis that the haplotypes in other nations may have originated in the US.

Korea and Taiwan have a different haplotype of the virus than China, perhaps more infective but much less deadly, which would account for a death rate only 1/3 that of China.

Neither Iran nor Italy were included in the above tests, but both countries have now deciphered the locally prevalent genome and have declared them of different varieties from those in China, which means they did not originate in China but were of necessity introduced from another source. It is worth noting that the variety in Italy has approximately the same fatality rate as that of China, three times as great as other nations, while the haplotype in Iran appears to be the deadliest with a fatality rate of between 10% and 25%.

Due to the enormous amount of Western media coverage focused on China, much of the world believes the coronavirus spread to all other nations from China, but this now appears to have been proven wrong. With about 50 nations scattered throughout the world having identified at least one case at the time of writing, it would be very interesting to examine virus samples from each of those nations to determine their location of origin and the worldwide sources and patterns of spread. …

We Chinese can take a lot of shit from America:

  • the kidnap of Huawei’s Meng Wanzhou,
  • the blacklisting of Huawei, the trump up charges,
  • the lies about China stealing technology, about 5G,
  • the tariffs, trade war and the disinformation,
  • the near daily attacks by top government officials, Mike Pompeo, Mike Pence, going from country to country most recently Germany, Senegal and Ethopia,
  • the blocking of Chinese purchases from European tech companies,
  • the threats made at the Taiwan Straits with aircraft carriers,
  • the poisoning of our relations with Africa and Latin America and SEA neighbors,
  • the spread of lies over Tibet, Xinjiang plus financial and diplomatic support of terrorist groups from there,
  • the intimidation at the South China Sea with aircraft carriers and warships,
  • the Press propaganda, from Malaysiakini, Reuters, CNN, to NYT, BBC, and never ending smear against China over Covid-19,
  • the extraterritorial laws and sanctions passed on Hong Kong and Xinjiang, and
  • even the financing and the training provided to the Black Shirt, pro-US Hong Kong rioters.

But we will not take this, poisoning our Motherland, and killing our people. We swear America will pay because if it doesn’t the Chinese government has failed in its most elementary duty: Protect our people. We have lost more than 3,000, some of them our best doctors and nurses. Equal to that, our people were falsely accused, the people in the wet market. Even Nature, the bats!

CDC’s Robert Redfeld testimony in Congress, March 12, Washington time

Redfield’s statement, above, tells hell of a lot:

  • (a) They must be hundreds of thousands already infected on the streets since the diagnosis was post-mortem and we don’t even known when and who was the first Covid-19 infection or death or both, the first being commonly called ‘Patient Zero’.
  • (b) Definitely then the US have been under-reporting cases to the WHO, and even all their statistics produced locally, by the CDC are completely unreliable into the true situation. But their Press, from Malaysiakini and Reuters to CNN and the New York Times accused China of covering up.
  • (c) Covid-19 could have originated in America. The question is just when, where, how?
  • (d) America’s entire health system is fucked. They don’t want to know, so don’t test, don’t trace, don’t isolate, don’t treat, do nothing.

But that’s not all. See more below.

‘Where was your Patient Zero?’

Chinese official speculates AMERICANS may have infected Wuhan at army games & calls to ‘come clean’

https://cdni.rt.com/files/2020.03/article/5e6ad9ab2030275eed4e4ff4.jpg

Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Lijian Zhao has demanded US authorities reveal what they’re hiding about the origins of Covid-19, going as far as to suggest the coronavirus may have been brought to China by the US military.

Pointing to a video of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) director Robert Redfield apparently admitting the US had several deaths from Covid-19 before they were able to test for it, Zhao called on the American watchdog to come clean in a tweet posted on Thursday.

“It might be US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan,” Zhao suggested, calling for the CDC – and the US in general – to “be transparent” and share what they know about where and when “Patient Zero” was first diagnosed.

In the video (clip above), Redfield acknowledged that some cases of coronavirus were misclassified as influenza as the medics did not have an accurate test for the new epidemic at the time. He did not elaborate on when these misdiagnosed cases first appeared – saying only that “some cases have been diagnosed that way.”

In the absence of any patients’ details or chronology of deaths, speculation has swirled. Zhao’s “theory” in particular focused on the military delegation that traveled to Wuhan in October for the Military World Games, weeks before the city confirmed the outbreak in December. The delegation was part of the 300-member group of American athletes taking part in the multi-sport event held every four years.

Zhao is not the only high-profile political figure to voice suspicions about the timing of the Games and the introduction of the coronavirus in Wuhan. Former Malaysian PM Matthias Chang offered similar speculation back in January, zeroing in on the event as the launch point for what he deemed a biological war waged by the US against China.

The World Health Organization (WHO) states that what is now the Covid-19 pandemic was first reported as a coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China, on 31 December 2019. The search for the deadly disease’s origin has been ongoing, with conflicting versions blaming the Wuhan food market and bats – a local delicacy – sold there in particular, while others opined humans might have gotten the virus from pangolins, an endangered scaly mammal.

Less orthodox theories suggest malicious intent, with the head of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards sensationally claiming last week that Covid-19 could possibly be “a product of a biological attack by America which initially spread to China and then to Iran and the rest of the world.”

So far, the problem with all of those theories, blaming both animals and humans, is that no direct causal proof has been established, while the identity of China’s “Patient Zero” also remains unclear. And it’s not China alone: in Washington state – which seemingly identified and successfully isolated its first infected traveler, with dozens of contacts identified and monitored – the virus somehow began spreading anyway. Even Steve Wozniak, Apple’s co-founder, at one point claimed he and his wife may have been the US’ Patient Zero after developing a bad cough on return from China. It has since emerged his wife’s diagnosis was “a sinus infection,” however.

China just saved another life

The heart of the Covid-19 patient abruptly ceased. Then…

The people don’t give up though the work is very risky for the doctors and nurses, working on a ratio of six to one. But, every life is another victory and we Chinese are so glad for them. They are with the PLA, like her…

Only in my, dear, dear China…

How from Iran this planeload of Chinese arriving Changsha were treated and quarantined. After 14 days, all were pronounced free of Covid-19.

Everywhere, all I hear when I arrive is, “Welcome home! Welcome home! Welcome home!” Thank you, for bringing us home, safe. Thank you my Motherland, the most reliable…
