President Biden’s decision to give the intelligence agencies 90 days to determine the origin of the coronavirus, along with the revelation last night that U.S. intelligence agencies are sitting on a lot of evidence suggesting that SARS-CoV-2 emits from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, prompted the CCP to burn its propaganda machine.
In comments made Thursday, a key spokesman for China’s Foreign Ministry released one of the CCP’s most misleading narratives from the early days of the disease outbreak: the idea that the virus made in the US (not China), and intended to be shipped in the American. military to damage Chinese society.
Speaking on Thursday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian asked the White House to reflect on its own role in the pandemic and not “dump” Beijing’s responsibility. He also asked that Washington provide an “explanation” for a respiratory respiratory outbreak in northern Virginia, along with the onset of the “vaping disease,” which occurred before the pandemic began, and was used by the Chinese media. to spread uncertainty about the origin of the virus.
Citing 33 million COVID-19 cases in the U.S. and 600K deaths, Zhao asked “How safe is your conscience?”
But for the most part, the comments have focused on the “unexplained” disease in northern Virginia, and there has been no proven claim about a blaze at Fort Detrick in Maryland, which has become a hot Weibo topic similar to twitter in China. The wild claims are based on surprisingly little evidence: the CDC issued a “stop and stop” order to stop lab operations due to safety concerns. But that hasn’t stopped the speculation (reinforced by government agents) from boasting that the lab may be related to wear.
“I would also like to emphasize that the Fort Detrick base is full of suspicions. There are more than 200 biological laboratories in the United States scattered around the world. How many secrets?”
Zhao’s comment came after U.S. President Joe Biden on Wednesday said he gave intelligence agencies 90 days to determine the origin of Covid-19. Biden said his administration will continue to push China to “engage in a full, transparent, evidence-based international investigation and to provide access to all relevant data and evidence.”
Reinforcing a statement from the Chinese Embassy in Washington, DC on Wednesday night, Zhao called on the U.S. to stop “ignoring facts and science” and avoid “repeatedly asking that check out China. “
While there is no evidence to substantiate any of these theories, a report by WHO scientists claims that the “lab leak” theory may be possible but has done nothing wrong in the past. weeks, with the WHO promising to conduct another investigation into the origin of the virus.
Fortunately for Beijing, the CCP does not have to rely solely on its official spokesperson to spread misleading stories. Because just this week, an NYT reporter tasked with covering the COVID-19 pandemic tweeted that it was “racist” to talk more about the Wuhan lab leak theory, despite growing evidence.
“Every day we stop talking about lab leak theory and maybe racists will also admit it. But alas, the day is not here yet,” Mandavilli tweeted.
He immediately faced the push and subsequently deleted the tweet, including the following comments from Glenn Greenwald: “Oh my god: I don’t know what his job is,” according to investigator journalist Glenn Greenwald. “Can someone explain to me why it is racist to think when a virus has come out of a lab in China, but it is not racist to insist that it infects people because of the wet market in China? If anything, isn’t the latter more racist? ”he asked.
On the other hand, the CCP may be happy to raise the signal that anyone who accuses skeptics is racist. Because they prefer the world to stop talking about the origin of the virus so that we can move on from any talk of accountability for the government that has allowed the worst disease in a century to escape its borders even of early warnings from scientists and doctors who, in most cases, were punished or silenced.
