Chinese official uses Fort Detrick facility as cover now that media & American politicians accept Wuhan Institute of Virology lab as pandemic origin.
The current administration and the American media have suddenly accepted the likely reality that the coronavirus caused the pandemic came from a Chinese laboratory.
This development means that the Chinese Communist Party must start a new narrative.
Therefore, Chinese officials demand an investigation into the famed American research facility, Fort Detrick. Apparently, it has links to the COVID leak.
The US doesn’t care about facts or truth at all, neither is it interested in a serious scientific study on the origins. Its only aim is to use the pandemic for stigmatization and political manipulation to shift the blame,” said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian.
Zhao then referenced Fort Detrick, a US Army biomedical research laboratory in Maryland that has been linked — without evidence — to the emergence of the virus by Chinese officials and state media outlets.
“What secrets are hidden in the suspicion-shrouded Fort Detrick and the over 200 US bio-labs all over the world?” Zhao said, adding that the US “owes an explanation to the world.”
The Chinese state media offered up the Fort Detrick theory last March. But, unfortunately, they pushed it more by the time the World Health Organization (WHO) visited Wuhan to examine the origins of the virus.
Fort Detrick hosts elements of the country’s biological defense program. While trying to deflect criticism of their handling of the coronavirus outbreak, Chinese officials have repeatedly responded by calling for the U.S. base to be opened to international inspectors.
In his remarks, Zhao also mentioned the faulty intelligence about weapons of mass destruction that led to the invasion of Iraq in 2003 and implied U.S. intelligence services were linked to a chemical weapons attack by the Assad regime against rebels in Syria.
After asserting they had the virus under control, the Chinese reported that they locked down a neighborhood of a major city after officials reported 20 cases.
The southern Chinese city of Guangzhou shut down a neighborhood and ordered its residents to stay home Saturday for door-to-door coronavirus testing following an upsurge in infections that has rattled authorities.
Guangzhou, a business and industrial center of 15 million people north of Hong Kong, has reported 20 new infections over the past week. The number is small compared with India’s thousands of daily cases but has alarmed Chinese authorities who believed they had the disease under control.
The spread of infections was “fast and strong,” the official Global Times newspaper cited health authorities as saying.
Saturday’s order to stay home applied to residents of five streets in Liwan District in the city center.
Is this new surge an attempt to distract from the recent focus on the Wuhan Institute of Virology laboratories? Is China trying to make everyone think the virus is still affecting the country?
I find it fascinating that Fort Detrick is now being used as a cover for the Chinese. Logically, one can conclude that probes into the Wuhan Institute of Virology activities would be over the target.DONATE
