Beijing’s Bio Bomb

If China’s conscience was clear, it would not have blocked discussion on COVID-19 in the United Nations. Even its objection to the name China Virus at a time of such global crisis with the virus killing thousands and infecting millions, cities/regions/nations locked down and economies shattered, indicates fear of China’s Communist Regime for having been exposed to the world.  After lying doggo for almost two months, Sun Weidong, China’s ambassador at New Delhi has suddenly emerged and gone on the offensive on Twitter against the name ‘China Virus’. This is in line with Beijing’s diktat to all its diplomats around the world. 

China even threatened to stop pharmaceutical supplies to the US in the event US continues with the China Virus terminology. China’s foreign minister Wang Yi rang up his Indian counterpart requesting India shouldn’t use the term China Virus. It is pathetic to see some US Congessmen and their honchos objecting to President Donald Trump calling it China Virus. What else should it be called – ‘CCP Virus’, ‘Jinping Virus’ or ‘Beijing’s Bio Bomb’?

The Clinical Microbiology Review of October 2007 from the American Society of Microbiology had stated: The Presence of a large reservoir of SARS-CoV-like viruses in horseshoe bats, together with the culture of eating exotic mammals in southern China is a time bomb. The possibility of reemergence of SARS and other novel viruses from animals or laboratories and therefore the need for preparedness should not be ignored. 

It may be recalled that in wake of the SARS outbreak in 2003, the then DG of WHO Harlem Brundtland had asked the international community to investigate animal reservoirs that could be responsible for the SARS outbreak and study the virus transiting from animals to human, specifically identifying China’s wet markets as the source. But the international community ignored Brundtland’s exhortations.

UN Secretary General Ban-Ki-moon had also said, “The more governments, UN agencies, organizations, businesses and civil society understand risk and vulnerability, the better equipped they will be to mitigate disasters when they strike and save more lives”. What bigger disaster could there be than China’s virus attack.

The world may have more viruses emanating from China in future because China could not care less. China’s wet markets breeding all types of insects, birds and animals in squalid conditions for human consumption can be seen on electronic media. Chinese consume virtually anything that moves – more the weird variety like bats, better for the ego and impressing others. Cockroach farming is profitable business since fried cockroaches relished with drinks.

After COVIS-19  there are reports of Hantavirus in China with one already dead from Yunnan Province. Hantavirus is transmitted through rodents and their feces. So you have video clips of Chinese swallowing live baby rats. One demented pervert is seen cooking a live dog. There are reports of some even consuming human embryos. The illegal trade of human organs of prisoners and dissenters who disappear thrives right under the nose of the CCP.

There is no scientific evidence for China accusing that COVID-19 was leaked from a lab in the US and brought to China. If that was indeed the case, US would have logically hit Beijing, not Wuhan, and why would the US not be prepared for a blowback? Without doubt, the COVID-19 source is the biological research lab in Wuhan which operates under direct supervision of the PLA.

Dr Francis Boyle, who drafted the Bio Weapons Act, is quite sure that COVID-19 is an offensive biological warfare weapon with DNA-genetic engineering, and this is known to the WHO. China is saying they neither created nor intentionally transmitted COVID-19. But if that is true then why is China afraid and blocking discussion on COVID-19 at the UN? The clear indication is that China’s biological warfare experiment went wrong and all efforts were made to hide it till it became impossible, which makes China doubly at fault.

In July 2019, a group of Chinese scientists were accused in Canada for spying in Canada’s National Microbiology Lab (NML) at Winnipeg; allegedly smuggling data/virus to China. Biological warfare, economic warfare and psychological warfare are part of China’s concept of ‘Unrestricted Warfare’, originally aimed at destroying America but which Beijing employs against all adversaries. China’s biological warfare program is believed to be in advanced stage.

SARS broke out in China in November 2002 but China reported it to the WHO only in February 2003 by which time SARS spread to 37 countries. Similarly, outbreak of COVID-19 in Wuhan was hidden by China till it was no more possible to hide it. To top this, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, DG of WHO sat on the information despite Taiwan having warned him of the outbreak in December 2019, taking his own sweet time to declare it a pandemic simultaneously ‘praising’ China for maintaining transparency.

Tedros, a known Chinese stooge who won his present post because of Beijing sent a team to Wuhan only in mid-February, with the joint China-WHO probe saying that COVID-19 continued to exhibit characteristics of a pandemic spreading rapidly around the world. Tedros did not declare it a global pandemic even then and in fact urged the international community to not spread fear and stigma by imposing travel restrictions. In contrast, DG of WHO Harlem Brundtland in 2003 recommending travel restrictions moment he learnt of the SARS outbreak.

China is second largest donor to WHO and gave $20 million to fight COVID-19. Tedros has as much blood on his hands for the COVID-19 global havoc (21,191 dead, 68,644 by March 25 with figures rising every second) as the CCP, and deserves to be hanged.    

China has officially reported 3,287 dead and 81,285 infected with COVID-19 in China. These appear far below actual figures. China Mobile experiencing exponential growth of consumers in 2019 showed sharp drop of 8.116 million consumers in January-February 2020. It has now emerged that there is combined drop of 21 million mobile consumers across China in last three months in all service providers.

According to exiled Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui, who has a history of accurately blowing the whistle against the Chinese regime, China has been burning over 1200 bodies daily in Wuhan alone and that China installed 1.4 million portable incinerators across the country to deal with COVID-19 deaths. Guo has been speaking to residents in Wuhan and assesses that COVID-19 infected as many as 5 million in China and death toll has crossed 200,000. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also believe that China is severely under-reporting the COVID-19 data.

COVID-19 was created in Wuhan and presently 198 countries are struggling to cope with it while China is getting back to business with factories reopening. Whatever ruthlessness China used in killing and incinerating its own population appears to be paying off. Now China is buying stocks abroad to control global trade in the future. The possibility of China having used a directed biological weapon is strong because it has managed to hit the US and Europe effectively.

Before China ordered lockdown in end January, thousands were commuting between Wuhan and Beijing, yet there was hardly any effect of the virus in Beijing. As pointed out by a veteran-scholar: almost all capital cities in the world including Washington DC have sizeable number of COVID-19 infected people but not Beijing; fatalities in Spain and Italy despite best medical and healthcare facilities have already surpassed that of China, and; China is back to normal (even though they may be hiding data) while balance world is still struggling. Did China so design the attack? 

Trump has said he wants to lift the lockdown by Easter because it is better to suffer COVID-19 casualties than “mass suicides” that may happen if lockdown continues, and that Americans will have to work to keep the economy going. Bill Gates says, “If a country does a good job with testing and ‘shut down’ then within 6-10 weeks they should see very few cases and be able to open back up.”

There is merit in this but it also depends on the number of testing kits available vis-à-vis size of the population where America is facing shortages and a populous country like India will continue to face for some time. In this too China has demonstrated lack of morals – of the 1,50,000 testing kits sent to Czech Republic by China, 80% are giving false results. 

China would have been thrilled with the new of three aboard US aircraft carrier USS Roosevelt in Western Pacific infected with COVID-19 who had to be evacuated by air.

A suit has been filed in a Texas District Court in the US seeking damages of over $20 trillion US Dollars against China for the “creation and release, accidental or otherwise” of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)  as a biological weapon in violation of China’s international obligations. The plaintiffs argue that in effect, the new Coronavirus is a terrorist-related weapon of mass destruction.  This is an interesting development but it is difficult to maintain a law suit against a sovereign country, especially China who treats judgments by the Hague-based International Court of Justice like toilet paper. 

But if this petition is allowed, US can seize China’s US Treasury Bonds worth $1.3 trillion US dollars. In doing so, the US will have to take into consideration the US-China inter-dependency and trade. With China having blocked discussion on COVID-19 in the UN, the world will have to examine fast how to deal with rogue China because inaction would give China free hand for wreaking a bigger disaster next time.
