Where did the coronavirus begin? Early speculation by media pointed to the popular ‘wet markets’ in China where live animals are bought and sold. It turns out that this was a head fake by the media to try and scapegoat the ‘wet markets’ for the cause of the coronavirus.
For weeks, others have been digging deeper and have found that the coronavirus DID NOT begin in the ‘wet markets’ in Wuhan, China but in a lab in China. It turns out that the federal government is ‘increasingly confident’ that ‘sloppy handling’ in the Wuhan lab was the cause of the spread of the coronavirus. The virus may have leaked out of a Wuhan, China lab by accident or through biowaste but is not believed to be a bioweapon.
The Lancet had an early and very detailed report on how the coronavirus began and found that neither the first known person to be infected nor many in the first cluster of patients had any connection to the ‘wet market’.: A novel coronavirus outbreak of global health concern
China tried to cover-up the virus by silencing several whistleblowers, but the very contagious virus spread like wildfire. China is now responsible for sickness and death around the world because of the cover-up.
National Review questions the origins of the coronavirus in Jim Geraghty’s must-read article: The Trail Leading Back to the Wuhan Labs. Geraghty takes the reader through some of the same pathways as the video below, raising questions about the narrative being pushed by China that the virus began in the Wet Markets:
“The fact that the Chinese government spent six weeks insisting that COVID-19 could not be spread from person to person means that its denials about Wuhan laboratories cannot be accepted without independent verification.”
Now we know that China cannot be trusted.
Way back in 2015, the fact that the bat virus was being tested in labs was out there:
Even before 2015, according to the Hong Kong Citizen News, the Chinese were experimenting with the bat virus:

THE CHINESE COVER-UP – THE COZY RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CHINA AND THE WHO:
Tucker Carlson raised the question about the cozy relationship the World Health Organization (WHO) has with China, and if the WHO is completely biased towards protecting China.
Carlson shows a shocking video of proof that the WHO would rather deny Taiwan’s existence than offend the Chinese government. Previous reports (see below) show how the government of Taiwan warned of human to human contagion early on, but the information was ignored by the WHO (see below).
Reaction from Gordon Chang, author of ‘The Coming Collapse of China’, only confirms the relationship.
The WHO is the medical arm of the UN, and we give them tons of money every year. Perhaps it’s time to cut them off.
January 14th…This tweet hasn’t aged well:
Taiwan is questioning the relationship between the World Health Organization (WHO), and China. The problem is that the WHO failed to act on early warnings of human-to-human contagion of coronavirus.
Health officials alerted the WHO about the coronavirus in late December last year, but no reports were made to other countries, according to National Review reports.
Taiwanese officials warned the WHO in December, but China waited until January 20th to report human to human transmission of coronavirus. Taiwan’s vice president and former health minister said that “an opportunity to raise the alert level both in China and the wider world was lost” when the Taiwanese warning wasn’t heeded by the WHO.
Chinese authorities have been accused of hiding the coronavirus and even punished a doctor in Wuhan, China, who tried to warn people on social media.
Officials in Wuhan didn’t warn others in early January about the highly contagious virus, so Chinese citizens held Lunar New Year celebrations with thousands of visitors to Wuhan. The negligence of the Chinese officials to is criminal. In early January, eight doctors were summoned by authorities for spreading “rumors” about SARS-like cases in Wuhan, China. Yes, Communist China punishes “rumormongers,” unlike in America, where we have free speech.
If Chinese officials had only listened to these people and let others know.
Instead, health officials scrambled to combat the Wuhan coronavirus as it spread everywhere.
The World Health Organization (WHO) declared a global emergency on January 20th.
WUHAN HERO HAS DIED:
The Chinese doctor who sounded the alarm trying to warn others, Dr. Li Wenliang, has died of the coronavirus.
A hospital statement announced his death:
“Our hospital’s ophthalmologist Li Wenliang was unfortunately infected with coronavirus during his work in the fight against the coronavirus epidemic. He died at 2:58 am on Feb 7 (local time) after attempts to resuscitate were unsuccessful.”
Li Wenliang was hospitalized on January 12 after contracting the virus from one of his patients.
He was confirmed to have the coronavirus on February 1st.
CNN reports that Li had raised the alarm about the virus that ultimately took his life:
In December, he posted in his medical school alumni group on the Chinese messaging app WeChat that seven patients from a local seafood market had been diagnosed with a SARS-like illness and were quarantined in his hospital in Wuhan.
“I only wanted to remind my university classmates to be careful.”
Li, a 34-year-old doctor, working in Wuhan, the central Chinese city at the epicenter of the deadly coronavirus outbreak, told his friends to warn their loved ones privately. But within hours screenshots of his messages had gone viral…without his name being blurred.
“When I saw them circulating online, I realized that it was out of my control, and I would probably be punished.”
Soon after he posted the message, Li was accused of rumor-mongering by the Wuhan police. He was taken into the police station and charged with “spreading rumors online.” Li was even forced to sign a letter stating that he made false comments about the virus, the BBC reported
He was one of several medics targeted by police for trying to blow the whistle on the deadly virus in the early weeks of the outbreak, which has sickened more than 28,000 people and killed more than 560.
If China had treated the coronavirus aggressively from the beginning, perhaps it wouldn’t have spread and killed so many people. This doctor is a hero for speaking out!
