Today, I will focus on three urgent topics. Did the Coronavirus make the zoonotic jump from bats to humans? Or was it accidentally released by China? And are the Chinese telling us the truth about COVID-19’s real mortality rate?
I know some of you have little time to watch the entire video, so what if I told you now that a Chinese virology lab accidentally released the virus in Wuhan around October 2019, would you keep watching? And what if I showed you how Chinese authorities continue to suppress the real number of COVID-19 cases, which may be far higher than anyone could ever have imagined, would you be intrigued?
Chinese authorities reported that 41 hospital patients had been identified with a Novel Coronavirus infection by January 2. The official line, published in The Lancet on January 24, is that 66% of 41 patients had been exposed to the Huanan Seafood Market – popularly known as the “zoo” – where a range of wild animals were sold.
But as I discussed in last week’s video, South China Morning Post reported on March 14 that it had viewed a government report tracing “patient zero” to November 17 when a 55-year-old became the first person to contract the Novel Coronavirus. Besides age, we know little else about this patient.
The Wall Street Journal cites Wuhan Municipal Health Commission public notices announcing the first confirmed case: a person surnamed Chen who fell sick on December 8 but had fully recovered and been discharged from the hospital. That person denied going to the Huanan market, it said.
The BBC, however, reports that the very first sufferer fell ill on December 1, a week earlier than official claims. Professor Wu Wenjuan, co-author of The Lancet report, told the BBC that “patient zero” was a pensioner in his 70s who was bed-ridden due to a stroke but who also had no connection to the Huanan Seafood Market prior to falling ill.
If that’s not confusing enough, rumors circulating on WeChat and Weibo suggest that the real “patient zero” was actually a, guess what, female virologist, called Huang Yanling, who worked at, guess where, The Wuhan Institute of Virology, which is just 14 km, or 9 miles, from the Huanan Seafood Market. A coincidence?
As detectives like to tell us, there are no such things as coincidences in a criminal investigation. The Wuhan Institute of Virology is China’s first biosafety level-4 lab, certified in 2017 to work on the world’s most dangerous pathogens.
The fact that there is only one microbiology lab in all of China that handles “advanced viruses like the novel coronavirus” and, which is located in the epicenter of the epidemic is simply too coincidental.
One day later, another Weibo user, who claimed to be a researcher at the institute named Chen Quanjiao, accused the institute’s director Wang Yanyi of leaking the virus. You know what they say, “where there’s smoke, there’s fire.”
Beijing has had four, count them, four known accidental leaks of the SARS virus in recent years, so it’s quite feasible that the Wuhan coronavirus strain accidentally leaked out. Another troubling sign: Major General Chen Wei, the People’s Liberation Army’s top expert in biological warfare, was dispatched to Wuhan in January to help contain the outbreak.
This anecdotal evidence aligns closely with observations by Dan Sirotkin of the “Harvard to the Big House” blog who posits that “[the Novel Coronavirus] may be a bio-engineered strain…most likely released into the public by accident.”
The earlier November 17 timeline also matches an analysis by Kristian Andersen, an associate professor at Scripps Research, who studied 27 publicly shared Novel Coronavirus genome sequences and found that the virus began spreading somewhere around October 1.
The official explanation that the Novel Coronavirus emerged from the Huanan Seafood Market, where Chinese horseshoe bats may have made an inter-species jump requires completely ignoring everything we know about how viruses transfer between species. For one, when viruses jump they’re not immediately virulent enough to cause people to collapse on the street. Why kill your host right away?
Then there’s the muddy connection. The first three known cases on December 1 and 2 were not linked to the market. Neither were 11 of the 41 cases covered in the Lancet study. This early data suggests an evolving virus that surfaced earlier.
The fact that the Novel Coronavirus emerged in close proximity to the only BSL-4 virology lab in China, which was, coincidentally, staffed with two Chinese scientists who had previously worked at a U.S. lab that bio-engineered an incredibly virulent strain of bat coronavirus, makes the accidental release of a bio-engineered strain highly probable.
There was no trace of the Novel Coronavirus before November 2019. Zoonotic jumps don’t just magically happen, certainly not a virus that is so incredibly adapted to humans that it is able to infect its victims undetected, spread undetected, then kill after more than enough time has passed to find multiple new hosts.
But what makes an accidental release all the more likely and really troubling is the underreporting of Coronavirus cases. The Communist government has aggressively clamped down on news media and the internet, raising many questions.
The Chinese regime originally claimed that there had been no new coronavirus infections since March 18, yet on March 20, Cindy Wei posted this picture on Facebook commenting, “New cases in Jiajun Lishuikang City in Wuhan.” Others have shared similar notices posted in several Wuhan developments.
Epoch Times reviewed internal government documents that reported 91 newly diagnosed patients in Wuhan on March 14, while China’s National Health Commission only reported 19 cases on the same day.
Authorities also claimed that fewer patients resulted in the shutting down of field hospitals set up inside stadiums, expo centers and large gyms, like this one, because there no longer was a need for them. On March 19, however, a construction worker shared a video of a new makeshift hospital built inside a stadium in suburban Wuhan. “After another night, our mission is almost complete,” the man says. “A new makeshift hospital will be in operation soon.”
Here’s yet another example. The Chinese report 81,591 Coronavirus cases, with 60,324 recovered patients and only 3,160 deaths, for a simplified recovery and mortality rate of 73% and 4%, respectively. In comparison, Italy has a recovery and mortality rate of 12% and 10%. Really Beijing, a 73% recovery rate after people were seen falling dead all over the place? Who are you kidding?
Our willing suspension of disbelief was shocked, however, by the latest figures from China Mobile. As you know, China Mobile is China’s largest mobile phone carrier with more than 940 million subscribers.
During 2019, China mobile consistently added new subscribers each month, peaking with 3.7 million new subscribers in December. In January and February 2020, however, the company suddenly began losing subscribers, 862,000 in January and a whopping 7.2 million in February for a massive total loss of 8.1 million in just two months!
China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) confirmed this huge subscriber loss on March 19 when it reported that the total number of Chinese mobile phone subscribers dropped 21 million.
There simply is no plausible way to explain this massive decline, especially since the Chinese government tracks phone use. Since 2010, China has required all users to register their phones with a real ID. And on December 1, phone users also had to confirm their identity with a facial scan, so a theoretical variance due to widespread identity scams can be ruled out.
Now you also have to realize that you simply can’t avoid having a cellphone in China, because not only are Chinese people’s bank accounts and social security accounts bundled with cellphone plans, but the Chinese government now requires that all Chinese use their cellphones to generate a health code. Only Chinese with a green health code are allowed to move around in China.
Now you know why it’s impossible for someone to cancel their cellphone in China. And that means that some 21 million users have disappeared in just two months, a number corroborated by China Mobile’s data, which is a publicly-traded company that has to comply with investor disclosure.
Even if most of these phone users disappeared due to extenuating circumstances, and, say, 10% died due to the Coronavirus that means more than 2 million people died in China, not 3,000.
