Patrick Christys: Did China try covering up Covid origins with devastating consequences?

'We were told that it was just an unhappy coincidence that there happened to be a laboratory there'

Did Coronavirus originate in a Wuhan laboratory and did China cover up the fact that it leaked from there, allowing it to spread around the world and kill countless people while simultaneously crippling the global economy?

In short, has there been a massive cover-up? According to reports today, the answer is yes. And I don’t think that’s a massive shock to people, is it?

Wuhan is where the virus originated, we were told that it was just an unhappy coincidence that there happened to be a laboratory there that specialised in testing coronavirus’ and other deadly diseases.

We were expected to just ignore that and swallow the line that this virus emerged from a wet market.

We were honestly expected to believe the Chinese government – which, as a rule, you should never do.

An investigation has unearthed a pattern of incredibly suspicious behaviour by the Wuhan Institute of Virology, and by extension the Chinese Government.

Databases containing 22,000 viruses were taken offline in September 12, 2019, three months before China officially warned the world about the virus.

And on the very same day WIV ramped up security at the lab, replaced their air ventilation systems and purchased a new medical waste incinerator.

Two months later in November, the lab also purchased a new PCR testing machine - a bit of kit that has become so familiar to the world since the pandemic.

Then there was mass sterilisation cleaning of the lab and a lockdown in October 2019.

Roadblocks are reported to have been erected around the lab and there was a blackout of mobile phone data around the facility.

So it’s all pretty suspect.

And then let’s couple that with the equally suspicious behaviour of the scientific community – the very people who are supposed to deal in straight fact, the very people we are supposed to trust.

In the wake of the pandemic, The Lancet, arguably the world’s most respected scientific journal, published an article rubbishing the lab leak theory, which put it to bed for a while.

Well it’s emerged that 26 of the 27 scientists who wrote that article had links to Chinese researchers, the Wuhan lab itself and its funding streams. They didn’t declare this at the time.

We haven’t got time to go through every single one, but one example is that the letter was orchestrated by British zoologist Peter Daszak, president of the US-based EcoHealth Alliance, which funded research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

And then let’s have a look at who’s in charge of the WHO, which went out of its way to rubbish a lab leak theory and published a tweet, that is still online, in January 2020 which said this: Preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel #coronavirus (2019-nCoV) identified in #Wuhan, #China

Tedros Adhanom is the former Minister for Foreign Affairs in Ethiopia, a country whose economy has received billions from the Chinese government.

I think we have to ask ourselves what’s more likely. Is it more likely that the coronavirus originated from a bat at a wet market that just happens to be down the road from a facility that was testing coronavirus’ on bats, the Chinese government was simply not aware of it, despite obviously being very much aware of it, and several leading scientists who just coincidentally had links to the Wuhan lab innocently published an article clearing the Chinese government of all blame.

Or, did it simply leak from a lab and China tried to cover it up with devastating consequences? I know where I stand – and I think China has to pay.
