An article here dated 24th of January says that this blasted, evil thing was waiting to happen in China’s poorly regulated wet markets.
Beyond the meats we’re used to here, these markets in Wuhan also sell everything from dogs to snakes, civets, and crocodiles—both legal and illegal ones. Photographs of the Huanan Seafood Market—where the outbreak is believed to have started—show about 50 types of wild animals on sale there including porcupines and fixes as well as endangered pangolins…..
…….The Wildlife Conservation Society said to BI, “Poorly regulated, live animal markets mixed with illegal wildlife trade offer a unique opportunity for viruses to spillover from wildlife hosts into the human population.”
According to the BBC on the 3rd of Febuary here The Chinese regime was accusing the US of causing panic and spreading fear because of the US decision to declare a public health emergency and deny entry to foreign nationals who had visited China in the past two weeks. But the Us wasn’t causing panic and spreading fear was it?
Here This is Italy reports
China has lied and covered up key information during virtually every stage of its coronavirus response – from the initial outbreak to the number of cases and deaths and is still not telling the truth, experts have warned.Beijing initially tried to cover up the virus by punishing medics who discovered it, denying it could spread person-to-person and delaying a lockdown of affected regions – meaning early opportunities to control the spread were lost.
Then, once the virus began spreading, the Communist Party began censoring public information about it and spread disinformation overseas – including suggesting that US troops could have been the initial carriers.Even now, prominent politicians have warned that infection and death totals being reported by the regime are likely to be wrong – with locals in the epicenter of Wuhan suggesting the true tolls could be ten times higher.
While China has been widely praised for a draconian lockdown that helped slow the spread of the virus, evidence suggests that the country could have acted much quicker to prevent the spread.
Here Bloomberg reports,
China has concealed the extent of the coronavirus outbreak in its country, under-reporting both total cases and deaths it’s suffered from the disease, the U.S. intelligence community concluded in a classified report to the White House, according to three U.S. officials.
The officials asked not to be identified because the report is secret, and they declined to detail its contents. But the thrust, they said, is that China’s public reporting on cases and deaths is intentionally incomplete. Two of the officials said the report concludes that China’s numbers are fake.
Stacks of thousands of urns outside funeral homes in Hubei province have driven public doubt in Beijing’s reporting.
So basically the communist regime of China has lied to the world with awful consequences.
It has been widely reported about China giving dodgy medical equipmen tto Spain but it has also given dodgy equipment to Australia.
Here Sky News Austrlia reports,
Sky News host Paul Murray says China, “the very nation responsible for the atrocious handling” of coronavirus, is trying to “pretend they are helping” by sending millions-of-dollars-worth of defective personal protective equipment. It has been reported that China has been sending Australia defective equipment with the Australian Border Force seizing around 800,000 face masks. “This stuff is defective and being stopped at the borders”. “That would be an absolute definition of ugly”.
By all this, it is clear that China has acted appalingly and is continuing to do so. Bother.
