Our media blamed Russia for downing MH-117 before the wreckage hit the ground, and China as the source of Covid as soon as the Chinese discovered it. This week’s report threatens the Covid narrative.
WHO scientists–from Australia, Denmark, Germany, Japan, Kenya, Netherlands, China, Qatar, Russia, the UK, the USA, and Viet Nam–found no evidence of the virus in China before December, 2019.
Predictably, four of the Five Eyes claimed the study ‘lacked access to complete, original data and samples,’ but one-hundred eighty nations, including France, Spain, Italy and Germany, Fifth Eye New Zealand, and India–having seen China’s speedy containment of the virus and freedom from second waves–abstained.
While this is an unprecedented disappointment for a US initiative, the WHO’s next recommendation is more significant: to study other countries ‘with initial reports of positive results in sewage, serum, human or animal tissues/swab and other SARS-CoV-2 tests before the end of 2019’.
The US, Sweden, Japan, Italy, France, Spain, and Brazil have all made such reports (some backed by internationally recognized positive serology tests) and most have been forthcoming with their accounts. But US behavior was an outlier: the White House conducted all Covid discussions in secure facilities, classified them on a need to know basis, banned Covid testing, used cease and desist orders to enforce the ban, issued ‘Blame China’ memos to embassies worldwide, refused to share post mortem tissue samples of ‘vaping’ victims, refused to sign the UN/WHO Covid-19 agreement, and withdrew from WHO membership.
Then, immediately after Biden’s election, a CDC paper concluded that, “SARS-CoV-2 may have been introduced into the United States prior to 19 January 2020” [the prior reported first case]. Figures implied that Covid antibodies were widespread throughout the US long before the virus reached China, but that the combination of Covid’s low mortality and high doubling time for deaths–139 days–concealed its presence here. When qualitative factors–clinical symptoms, scans, serology–did not match previously-known respiratory syndromes, should have raised red flags, but the CDC attributed them to now-discredited “vaping”.
The Covid Narrative, China vs USA
65,000 Covid deaths in the month of December, 2020, suggest that the virus was in the US as early as 2013, a surmise that NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins earlier endorsed, “The virus might have been spreading quietly in humans for years, or even decades, without causing a detectable outbreak.” Adds Italy’s Prof. Giovanni Apolone, “The new coronavirus can circulate in the population for a long time and with a low lethality not because it is disappearing, then surge again”.
Now the WHO is requesting access to US case records and George Zhao, head of China’s CDC, is asking, “When will the United States become as open and transparent as China? When will the US invite WHO experts for origin tracing?”
Since the CDC has already demonstrated that the virus was widespread here before it reached China, and the ‘vaping’ story has collapsed, the WHO does not even need to visit the US, so what are Biden’s options?
If the White House is not open and transparent, it undermines America’s credibility and, if it grants access–and is then shocked, shocked! that Trump staged a coverup–it permanently ends his political career.
Blaming China was easy. Now comes the hard part.
