BREAKING NEWS: Coronavirus Originated in Chinese Lab, Not From Bat Sold in Wuhan Market

Kentucky, it’s not as bad as Australia
Holy shit! FUCK CHINA!
This changes everything! There were rumors about the lab but an actual confirmation is insane!

COVID-19 originated in a Wuhan laboratory as part of a Chinese viral research program, NOT from a bat eaten in the Wuhan “wet market.” “Patient zero" worked at the laboratory, then went into the population in Wuhan, where the outbreak began. That according to an explosive new story breaking from Bret Baier at Fox News and earlier reporting from The Washington Post.

According to Baier’s report, “multiple sources who have been briefed on the details of early actions by China's government and seen relevant materials” are telling Fox News that:

• The Wuhan wet market initially identified as a possible point of origin never sold bats; blaming the wet market was an effort by China to deflect blame from the laboratory, along with propaganda efforts targeting the U.S. and Italy.

• The Chinese research was part of an effort to demonstrate that its ability to identify and combat viruses are equal to or greater than the capabilities of the United States, multiple sources tell Fox News.

• China suppressed and changed data, destroyed samples, erased early reports, stifled academic articles, and scrubbed contaminated areas to hide evidence of the accidental transmission.

• Doctors and journalists who warned of the spread of the virus and its contagious nature and human to human transmission were “disappeared”.

• Though China quickly shut down domestic travel from Wuhan to the rest of China, it did not stop international flights from Wuhan.

• The World Health Organization (WHO) helped China cover its tracks “from the beginning.”

• In the six days after top Chinese officials secretly determined they likely were facing an outbreak in Wuhan, the city hosted a mass banquet for tens of thousands of people, and millions began traveling through for Lunar New Year celebrations. By the time President Xi Jinping finally warned the public on Jan. 20, more than 3,000 people had been infected during.

“This is tremendous,” said Zuo-Feng Zhang, an epidemiologist at the University of California, Los Angeles. “If they took action six days earlier, there would have been much fewer patients and medical facilities would have been sufficient. We might have avoided the collapse of Wuhan’s medical system.”

This may be the "costliest government coverup of all time," a source told Fox.

And next we will find out it really was an engineered bioweapon. There is no way in the world this cover-up was over a simple lab accident - if it was an accident, they'd just announce it and quietly kidnap those involved for organ harvesting. That's the easiest way to save face.

In the real world, if there is a government cover-up there is a conspiracy by default. This is always the case. And I think giving them the benefit of the doubt at any step of the changing story is irresponsibly credulous.

china's gotta go down for this shit
They got nuclear weapons and SJW's that suck their dick on their side.

Honestly, I just want to do what Japan did and just start pulling out manufacturing and bringing them back home.

It's our fault for opening our doors to them in the 1970s. Just reverse it and let China go back to being that country that fought a hundred civil wars when no one was looking.

Thank god we gave them money to develop this bioweapon under the guise of "monitoring coronaviruses". Imagine if their funding had been continued? Speaking of:


Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) actually funded a study on Bat Coronavirus, which was a project that included scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the Chinese lab at the center of controversy over their bat research. That study confirmed in 2018 that humans have died from coronavirus.

No shit. SARS, MERS, and the common cold are coronaviruses.

Yeah, this whole "study" thing and the "warning system" funding are shady as fuck. China knew immediately what it was and tried a total internal cover-up for six days - clearly they had immediate warning and just hid everything.

Which is why every country in the world should send them a due bill for the loss of life and economic catastrophe.

A lot of media not covering the story whatsoever.


And they clouded Google searches with this "story":


In January 2018, the U.S. Embassy in Beijing took the unusual step of repeatedly sending U.S. science diplomats to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), which had in 2015 become China’s first laboratory to achieve the highest level of international bioresearch safety (known as BSL-4). WIV issued a news release in English about the last of these visits, which occurred on March 27, 2018.

What the U.S. officials learned during their visits concerned them so much that they dispatched two diplomatic cables categorized as Sensitive But Unclassified back to Washington. The cables warned about safety and management weaknesses at the WIV lab and proposed more attention and help. The first cable, which I obtained, also warns that the lab’s work on bat coronaviruses and their potential human transmission represented a risk of a new SARS-like pandemic.

Which just happens to immediately precede China publishing a report using the money Fauci gave them:

Here’s an excerpt from the April 4, 2018 NIAID website entry entitled “New Coronavirus Emerges From Bats in China, Devastates Young Swine”: “A newly identified coronavirus that killed nearly 25,000 piglets in 2016-17 in China emerged from horseshoe bats near the origin of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV), which emerged in 2002 in the same bat species. The new virus is named swine acute diarrhea syndrome coronavirus (SADS-CoV).

Let's hope the economic repercussions of this catastrophe crush the CCP before they decide to lash out.

If Trump cancels our national debt with China I will vote Trump for the rest of my [long] life.

All leaders should declare a Chineese Jubilee and all private public or national debt to china or any chineese owned bank are written off and forgiven.

In exchange for that we will not deploy nukes and send them back to the stoneage.
However, severe restrictions on trade. Any joint ventures between western companies and china will be declared illegal.
They can export raw natural resources or food, nothing else.

The country needs to be destroyed as well as all the people that are stanning for them.

There needs to be mass turning on them in the realm of manufacturing. I truly hope this will be the turning point, but I'm skeptical... Too many greedy assholes out there who would happily sell their countries out if given the chance.

Also, just want to give props to this guy for his "independent research" from a few weeks ago:

Why doesn't the GAF TDS circus troupe every comment on threads like this? Have you noticed that? Just need "Trump" in the title somewhere and boom.......



I already know what their damage control will be based on the articles acting as memetic antagonists:

"Trump didn't keep giving the lab their bribe money! It's his fault this happened! The lab was just trying to save lives! See! They published a meaningless study in 2018 before Trump took away their funding!"

Because they are cowards and liars. They spent the last few months telling everyone that this was a conspiracy theory because some shitheel on the news said so. When the talking point gets updated with something to blame Trump they will be here dropping vox articles and mediamatters clips.
