A leaked document from the “Five Eyes” intelligence alliance – made up of the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand – shows China purposefully hid and/or destroyed evidence about the Wuhan coronavirus. Specifically, the alliance said the Chinese Communist Party’s cover-up can be described as an “assault on international transparency.”
Australia’s The Saturday Telegraph obtained a copy of the 15-page report which concluded China put other countries in grave danger by covering up different aspects of the coronavirus, including the fact that it can be transmitted from human-to-human, doctors magically “disappearing” when trying to talk about the virus and destroying evidence. China also refused to provide samples of the virus to scientists around the globe who are currently working on a vaccine.
The regime also censored various terms from search engines, including “SARS variation,” “Wuhan Seafood market” and “Wuhan Unknown Pneumonia” back in December. A few days later, China’s National Health Commission ordered all samples of the coronavirus to be destroyed or moved to specific testing facilities. The regime issued a “no-publication” order about the virus.
The Saturday Telegraph provided this timeline of important dates showing China’s blatant coverup:
November 9, 2015:
Wuhan Institute of Virology publish a study revealing they created a new virus in the lab from SARS-CoV.
December 6, 2019
Five days after a man linked to Wuhan’s seafood market presented pneumonia-like symptoms, his wife contracts it, suggesting human to human transmission.
China’s health authorities told a novel disease, then affecting some 180 patients, was caused by a new coronavirus.
Evidence of new virus emerges from Wuhan patient data.
Chinese internet authorities begin censoring terms from social media such as Wuhan Unknown Pneumonia.
January 1, 2020
Eight Wuhan doctors who warned about new virus are detained and condemned.
China’s top health authority issues a gag order.
Wuhan Municipal Health Commission stops releasing daily updates on new cases. Continues until January 18.
PRC official Wang Guangfa says outbreak “under control” and mostly a “mild condition”.
Professor Zhang Yongzhen’s lab in Shanghai is closed by authorities for “rectification”, one day after it shares genomic sequence data with the world for the first time.
PRC National Health Commission chief Ma Xiaowei privately warns colleagues the virus is likely to develop into a major public health event.
Officials in Beijing prevent the Wuhan Institute of Virology from sharing sample isolates with the University of Texas.
China’s internet watchdog tightens controls on social media platforms.
Citizen-journalist and local businessman Fang Bin disappears.
Wuhan belatedly raises its official fatalities by 1290.
Australia is still under the impression that the coronavirus began in a wet market in Wuhan. The United States believes it’s more probable that the coronavirus started in a lab in Wuhan. It is believed that China was attempting to “demonstrate that its efforts to identify and combat viruses are equal to or greater than the capabilities of the United States.”
When that news broke a few weeks ago, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo slammed China for failing to alert the world about the Wuhan coronavirus.
“What we do know is we know that this virus originated in Wuhan, China. We know there is the Wuhan Institute of Virology just a handful of miles away from where the wet market was,” Pompeo previously told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum. “There is still lots to learn. The United States government is working diligently to figure it out.”
Despite the United States’ theories, Yuan Zhiming, the Director of the Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory, has said that there’s no way the virus escaped from his lab. Suggesting that is a “conspiracy theory.”
“As people who carry out viral studies, we clearly know what kind of research is going on at the institute and how the institute manages viruses and samples,” Zhiming said. “As we said early on, there’s no way this virus came from us. We have a strict regulatory regiment. We have a code of conduct for research so we are confident of that.”
Although United States intelligence agencies aren’t in 100 percent agreement on how the virus originated, 70 to 75 percent of the agencies believe it started in the lab in Wuhan, Fox News reported.
