Did China create the Coronavirus as biological weapon to destroy countries and economies? Was the theory of Coronavirus being originated from bats a flaseflag floated by China? Did China very well know the consequences and planned the same to take over countries, industries and sell its products after economies dither due to the virus? Investigation reveals all of these to be true.

 Reports claim China wanted to prove its dominance. Epoch Times investigative reporter Joshua Philipp who led the investigation into the origin of the Wuhan Virus and its cover-up by China 
 
It was suspected that the Coronavirus was an experiment in biological warfare that went out of hand. Several researchers and investigators had categorically stated way back in January that the pandemic was a result of the experiment at Wuhan Virology Laboratory that had either knowingly or unknowingly leaked to the outside world. Dany Shoham, a former Israeli military intelligence officer who studied Chinese biological warfare had directly charged that Coronavirus was a result of China's bio-warfare experiment. 
 
Though it is not expected that Communist China would accept this, events that have transpired since then confirms many of these apprehensions. Look at the sequence of events: 
  • China uses its contacts in WHO to delay the declaration of Coronavirus as a being contagious between humans
  • WHO delays declaration of the pandemic that originated in China
  • WHO terms closing for air traffic to and from China as an overreaction
  • Virus spreads to countries across the world and they shutdown
  • Economies founder as lockdown forces industries and businesses to close
  • China surprisingly 'recovers' and start selling medical equipment to control Corona
  • China tries to buy out sick industries and businesses in various countries
  • China forces world bodies and countries not to use the term 'Chinese Virus' 
It is also true that the extent of the real number of deaths and infections in China is still unknown due to under-reporting of cases or control by the Communist party. However, a new path-breaking documentary sheds light on these aspects and reveals hitherto unknown facts about the origin of the virus which invariably points to the possibility of being artificially generated in a laboratory. 
 
In the new documentary by The Epoch Times and NTD, Epoch Times investigative reporter Joshua Philipp takes an in-depth look at the progression of the pandemic from January to April and tracks the possible origins from Huanan Seafood Market in Hubei Province to the scandals at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, from long-running experiments on viruses to military takeovers, suspicious activities from other corners. This article is based on the documentary and the investigation of Joshua Philipp. 
 
Joshua Philipp began looking into the origin of the now widely known coronavirus in early February with it's timing amid the Hong Kong protest, the Taiwan elections and the US-China trade deal. He investigated and wrote extensively about the Chinese Communist Party's programs of espionage and unconventional warfare for well over a decade. The videos and messages he used to receive from Chinese citizens leaked through the censorship suggested the situation was much worse than what the Communist regime was reporting. It was during his investigation and inputs from experts that he realised the allegation of the Chinese Communist Party that the Coronavirus started spontaneously in the Seafood Market in Wuhan was simply not true but propaganda to cover-up the truth. 
 

Propagating story of bats at Seafood Market 

China hurriedly closed the Huanan Seafood Market and cleaned up the premises in what seemed like destroying a crime scene even before investigation. 
The first thing that received public attention about the epidemic was an internal notice from the Wuhan Health Commission. here has been a continuous occurrence of pneumonia cases of unknown cause.

 The Huanan Seafood Market which China said to be the origin was suspiciously
closed even before experts investigated the claims
 
The notice issued on December 30, 2019 clearly required all medical units to report similar cases of unknown pneumonia. The notice started spreading online on December 31st, 2019 the Wuhan Health Commission issued a public notice for the first time saying that some medical institutions found a link between the pneumonia cases and the Huanan Seafood Market. However, the notice pointed out that there was no evidence of obvious human-to-human transmission and no infection among medical personnel. 
 
On January 1st, 2020 the Huanan Seafood Market posted a notice of closure. This was followed by a thorough cleanup of the market which seemed rushed. Guan Yi, a well known Hong Kong expert echoed my concern that the move was like destroying a crime scene. Since then, Wuhan officials have repeatedly said that most cases of pneumonia in Wuhan have a history of exposure to the Huanan Seafood Market. 
 
On January 26, the Institute of Virology of China, CDC announced that 33 of the 585 environmental samples from the Huanan Seafood Market were found to contain the novel coronavirus nucleic acid and the virus was successfully isolated from the positive culture samples suggesting that the virus originated from wild animals sold at the market. At this point, Huanan Seafood Market being the source of the epidemic became an official conclusion. 
  
A few days later however, a report from the Journal Science published online challenged that story. The report cited a paper in The Lancet, one of the world's top medical journals and questioned whether Wuhan's novel coronavirus pneumonia could not have originated at the market. The paper titled, Clinical features of patients infected with 2019 novel coronavirus in Wuhan, China was published in The Lancet on January 24. The first author of the paper is Huang Chaolin, Deputy Director of Jin Yin-tan Hospital, the first designated hospital for treatment of unknown pneumonia in Wuhan. This journal article is very important as it reveals a lot of important information. 
 

The Lancet Papers exposes China's game 

Lancet Papers show that supposed patient zero was nowhere near the market and that there are no bats in the Seafood Market or anywhere close. 
The paper talks about the first patient onset was actually on December 1st and these patients were not related to Huanan Seafood Market. Dr Sean Lin, Former Lab Director of the Viral Disease Branch Walter Reed Army Institute of Research says there was no epidemiological association found between the first patient and subsequent patient and they had no contact with the Huanan Seafood Market. He also said that about December 10th there was three more onset cases out of which two were not related to Huanan Seafood Market. A major discovery in this paper was it mentions that when there were a total of 41 patients, 14 of them proved to be unrelated to the Seafood Market, accounting for more than one third of the patients.

Investigation into reported cases show that
at least a third of the cases were unrelated to the Seafood Market.
 
 
  
Moreoever, it was revealed that no one sells bats at the Seafood Market and the officials from CDC didn't mention they found any bats in the Seafood Market too. Judy A Mikovits, Molecular Biologist and Former Director of Lab of AntiViral Mechanisms NCI, says that the Lancet Papers show that supposed patient zero was nowhere near the market. Secondly, she says that there are no bats in the Seafood Market or anywhere close, and the idea of the spread so fast through a population just the way it was said through the Seafood Market is highly unlikely and improbable. 
 
On January 29th, The Lancet republished an analysis of 99 confirmed cases at Jin Yin-tan Hospital of which 50 had no history of exposure to the Seafood Market. According to the New England Journal, of the 425 cases confirmed before Jan. 22nd, 45 cases onset before January 1st had no history of exposure to the Seafood Market. Notably, the authors of the two Lancet papers in the New England Journal of Medicine are doctors and medical experts in mainland China. 
 
Daniel Lucey, an epidemiologist at the University of Georgetown has said in response to The Lancet Paper that if the data were accurate, the first case would have been infected by the virus already in November, 2019 because of the incubation period between infection and symptoms. This would mean that the virus was quietly spreading between people in some parts of Wuhan before the cluster of cases with a history of exposure to the Huanan Seafood Market began on December 15. The first expert group from the National Health Commission arrived in Wuhan as early as December 31st, 2019. The expert panel established a set of diagnostic criteria after investigating Jin Yin-tan Hospital of Wuhan that stipulated a history of contact with Huanan Seafood Market, the person having a fever and displaying the whole genome sequence. All three standards have to be met to confirm a case. This standard was used until a second group of experts, including Zhong Nanshan, arrived in Wuhan on January 18th and made a revision. 
 
Why then did the panel impose a history of Seafood Market exposure as a criteria of diagnosis knowing that at least a third of the cases were unrelated to the Seafood Market? They clearly knew about 14 patients not related to Huanan Seafood Market at all, so that clearly means there was another source of outbreak. Joshua thinks this somehow this could be a malfeasance or somewhat intentional cover-up some important source of infection. It can go a long way to covering up the actual source by imposing a false place and you're not looking at the actual victims, then you're only allowed to find your keys under the light post. 
 
The numbers that we're getting from China about new infections and deaths are highly suspicious. We know that Beijing for six weeks in December, in January, suppressed information of the epidemic and then when they officially acknowledged it on January 20 they then started a campaign of suppression of information. We know that because the central leading group that was announced on January 26 has a nine person roster and it's very heavy with propaganda officials. Indeed, the vice chairman of the group is the Communist Party's
propaganda czar. It appears that the Party's main goal here is suppression of information, controlling the narrative. That's more important to them than actually ending the epidemic. 

The Mysterious Gene Sequence 

The amino acid similarity of COVID19 gene sequence with SARS is a possibility that the virus could be generated through a reverse engineered process. 
  
On January 10th, China disclosed the full genome sequence of the Wuhan novel coronavirus, and many of the world's top virologists began analyzing it. As early as January 7th, an academic, Zhang Yongzhen, from the National Institute of Communicable Disease Control and Prevention, along with the School of Public Health of Fudan University, submitted a joint paper to Nature. The paper was published on February 3rd and pointed out that the Wuhan coronavirus is closely related to CoVZC45 and CoVZXC21, two viruses sampled from bats in Zhoushan by the People's Liberation Army. 
 
The Wuhan coronavirus has an 89.1% nucleotide similarity to the CoVZC45 virus, and even exhibits 100% amino acid similarity in the NSP7 and E proteins.

Joshua Philipp says that a 100% amino acid similarity says it can't possibly be a natural mutation and is certainly is a recombination event that was laboratory driven 
 
Shortly after the paper was published, other scientists used Blast, a program developed by the National Institute of Health and the National Center for Biotechnology Information to compare the viral sequence based on the data submitted by Chinese authorities on January 12th. The results matched with Zhang's findings. Another scientist, Lu Roujian, from the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention and their team also published a paper in The Lancet on January 30. The paper stated that the Wuhan virus has an 88% similarity to two bat-derived SARS-like coronaviruses collected in Zhoushan, Zhejiang province of China. The earliest discovery of this bat-derived virus is by an expert from the Research Institute for Medicine of Nanjing Command. 
 
A paper published in 2018 states that scientists from this institute detected many SARS-like coronaviruses in bats from Zhoushan City, also known as bat SARS-like coronavirus, Zhoushan virus. In short, scientists found the Wuhan coronavirus, the current pandemic, is highly similar to a bat SARS-like coronavirus previously discovered by the Nanjing Military Research Institute, showing 100% amino acid similarity in NSP7 and envelope protein, the E protein. 
 
What does this high similarity reveal? Experts believe it is hard to see a protein that is 100% identical when the virus jumps species. Hence it is a possibility that the virus could be generated through a reverse engineered process. Joshua Philipp says that he believes that a 100% amino acid similarity says it can't possibly be a natural mutation. It almost certainly is a recombination event that was laboratory driven.

The Epoch Times and NTD have aired the documentary which investigates the possible origins of the Wuhan Virus and scrutinizes the claims of the Chinese government. 
 
 
On January 21st, researchers from the Institute Pasteur, Shanghai Chinese Academy of Sciences published a paper in Science China Life Sciences that mentioned an important phenomenon. The sequence of a key part of S protein of Wuhan virus has high homology with the SARS virus. 
 
What are S proteins? In the well-known coronavirus picture, they're little mushrooms attached to the surface of the virus. These S proteins, also known as spine proteins or spike proteins, are the most important tool for the coronavirus to invade human cells. If we compare the receptor ACE2 on the cell surface of human bodies to a lock, this S protein is the key which can unlock this lock on the cell surface and then invade into the cell to propagate and destroy it. That means virus now can infect human cell much easier and that's probably also one of the important reason the contributing to multi-organ failure when people have a very severe disease. They can spread out in the human body much faster. The high similarity of the S proteins from SARS1 to now SARS2, that's your spike protein. That's the lock and key. That's going to be what drives it right through human cells. And so we know that's the pathogenic spike protein for the original SARS. 
 
So now you're allowing that access to human tissues because the spike proteins of the natural evolutionary strains don't infect human cells at all. So that research has been going on at Wuhan and published since 2007. And clearly if that spike protein from SARS weren't on the new COVID19 or SARS2, it wouldn't be able to enter human cells. So again, this is again evidence that it couldn't go through the Wuhan Seafood Market because how did you get that spike protein off the original SARS from bats or any other way. It's lab derived. 
 
Research into the virus genome sequence revealed many essential data points. According to a February 28 report in the South China Morning Post, the Shanghai P3 Laboratory, which first shared the Wuhan coronavirus genome with the world, was ordered to close by authorities, impeding further research on the virus. 
 
Professor Zhang Yongzhen and his team, who published the genome sequence on January 11th, worked at this laboratory. According to a February 26 report on Caixin, Zhang Yongzhen's team isolated and completed the genome sequence of the previously unknown virus on January 5th. On the same day, the Shanghai Public Health Clinical Center reported the discovery to the National Health Commission and recommended prevention measures. No response was received as of January 11th. And it was then the team decided to publicize the virus genome sequence on virological.org, becoming the first team to do so in the world. 
The Shanghai P3 Laboratory, which first shared the Wuhan coronavirus genome with the world, was ordered to close by Chinese authorities, impeding further research on the virus  
Caixin also reported that the Hubei Health Committee had already notified genome sequencing organizations on January 1st regarding the cessation of analysis of Wuhan virus samples. Existing virus samples must be destroyed. Information on the samples related to papers and related data are all prohibited from release. 
 
On January 3rd China's National Health Commission distributed Notification Letter 2020 No.3 in which a similar directive was presented. Afterwards, the once active Chinese scientific community suddenly fell into an eerie silence. Dr Sean Lin questions, "What was the Chinese Communist Party trying to hide? This is telling us the Chinese government is censoring this information. They do not allow the samples to be sequenced or do not allow the sequence to be published or submitted to gene bank." 
 
Gordon Chang, Columnist and Asian Affairs Expert says, "Chinese response to this virus is extremely troubling. It ignored it for six weeks then allowed it to spread around China. It tried to get other countries to not protect themselves. This is dangerous, irresponsible behavior which endangered not only the Chinese people, but people around the world." 
 
Gen. Robert Spalding, Senior Fellow, Hudson Institue and Former NSC Senior Strategy Director, says "There is no other way of looking at it, they are responsible for the continuation of this coronavirus and every time it comes back, because it will come back because it's going to be with us now permanently. It will come back and every person that it kills, every person it harms is directly attributable to the Chinese Communist Party."

Discoveries of Dr. Shi Zhengli & creation of Wuhan Virus
 
In June 2010, a team of Chinese scientists had demonstrated their awareness of the special relationship between the SARS and Corona Virus which showed that they knew that coronaviruses could infect human bodies. 
 
Through investigating the genome sequence, Joshua Philipp found that the S protein of the Wuhan coronavirus was critical in its cross-species ability to infect humans. While he searched for related studies online, one Chinese virologist in particular caught his attention. She had spent many years researching bats and coronaviruses. She was the first to locate the key to how coronaviruses can overcome cross species barriers, in order to directly infect human bodies, and she was the first to discover that the SARS virus was the result of a restructuring of multiple SARS like coronaviruses found in bats. Her name is Shi Zhengli, and she may be an important link to the origin of the virus.

Shi Zhengli, a Chinese virologist seems to have known the
human transmission of Wuhan Virus several years ago but China hid the fact
 
 
Caixin, a media company with ties to the Chinese Communist Party, interviewed Shi Zhengli, in an attempt to refute these rumors. Dr. Sean Lin says Dr. Zhengli Shi is one of the top experts in China, studying about coronavirus, in Wuhan Institute of Virology. "She has so many publications from collecting identify bat coronavirus from bat caves. Her lab had these capacities and very sophisticated capacity to generate mutations to make it best for human expression as well", says Dr. Sean. Delving further into related information, Joshua discovered that Shi Zhengli published not one, but four papers in total. Each of which contained important information. 
 
Since the SARS outbreak in 2003, Shi Zhengli has been conducting research on coronaviruses. From 2010 onward, the focus of Shi and her team, was redirected to identifying the capacity for coronavirus transmission across species, specifically putting the spotlight on the S protein of the coronaviruses. In other words, her team's research in the Wuhan lab, has been looking into the part that can make coronaviruses transmittable to humans. 
 
In June, 2010, a team including Shi Zhengli, published a paper which described research to understand the susceptibility of angiotensin converting enzyme 2 ACE-2 proteins, of different bat species to the S Protein of the SARS virus. In the experiments, they also modified key amino acid codons to mutate the bats ACE-2 to examine compatibility with the SARS S Protein. This paper demonstrated their awareness of the special relationship between the S Protein and the ACE-2 receptor. It also signified that Shi had unearthed the passageway for coronaviruses into human bodies. 
 
In October, 2013, Shi and her team published a paper in the authoritative science journal, Nature. They claimed a breakthrough in coronavirus research. What was their breakthrough? They successfully isolated three viruses from bats, one of which had a S Protein that integrated with human ACE-2 receptors. This effectively demonstrated the direct human infection of SARS-like viruses to humans, without the need of an intermediate host. Then in November, 2015, Shi and her team at the Wuhan lab once again published a paper. This time in the British journal, Nature Medicine. They discussed the creation of a synthetic virus, a self-replicating Chimeric virus. This virus had the SARS virus as the framework, with the key S protein replaced, by the one they had found in a bat coronavirus, she mentioned in her 2013 paper.

"Additional studies very strongly support the idea that this new coronavirus came from a recombination event, that is a cutting and pasting of two different viruses” - Dr. Judy Mikovits, PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from George Washington University 
 
This new virus demonstrated a powerful ability for cross-species infection. The mice infected with the synthetic virus revealed severe lung damage with no cure. This symbolized that Shi's successful splicing of the SARS virus, was a key to open the door to the cross-species transmission. What is startling is that the successful experiments on mice were only the tip of the iceberg. They planned to further experiment on primates, although Shi Zhengli did not indicate any conclusion from this research. Her move to research on primates suggests this was to more closely simulate the infection of humans, with this new synthetic virus. 
 
However, Shi's experiments quickly triggered widespread debates from the academic community. Simon Wain-Hobson of the Pasteur Institute in France, expressed deep concerns. He told Nature, if the new virus escaped, nobody could predict the trajectory. Dr Judy Mikovits says propagation could happen anywhere. "Simon Wain-Hobson's prediction is exactly what's happening, that the virus is everywhere, and it could not spread that fast through various countries, unless it's been spread via laboratories, via the mail, via research scientists studying that", Dr Judy. 
 
On November 14, 2018, Shi Zhengli spoke at the School of Life Sciences and Biotechnology at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. The topic was, Bat coronavirus and its cross species infection. Reports of this event have since been deleted from the University website. Joshua discovered two more significant pieces of information regarding the dangers of the research conducted by Shi Zhengli's team. 
 
First, on October 16, 2014, the Obama administration, wary of the potential threats to public health from the Gain-of-function, GoF research into SARS, MERS, influenza, announced through the National Institute of Health, that it was suspending funding into similar research. The funding pause included Shi Zhengli's research project, genetic engineering of SARS-like coronavirus in bats, a collaborative effort with Dr Ralph Baric, a virologist at the University of North Carolina. 
 
Second, after the Wuhan outbreak, Indian researchers compared the S Protein sequence between 2019-nCoV (Wuhan coronavirus) and SARS. They discovered that 2019-nCoV (Wuhan coronavirus) had four new sequences inserted, all of which can be found in HIV sequences, through a search on GenBank. Shi Zhengli discredited those observations, although she never denied the existence of the four inserted sequences. 
 
"The research that they actually published shows that Dr. Shi and her team working on developing a coronavirus for the human host” - Gen. Robert Spalding, Senior Fellow, Hudson Institue and Former NSC Senior Strategy Director
 
 However, scientists probing GenBank, found that there were only three viruses containing all sequences. The first is the HIV virus itself. The second is a bat coronavirus discovered by Shi, and the third is this Wuhan coronavirus. "We have done this work for 40 years. There is a sequence analysis and comparison of the virus of the SARS2 to COVID-19, apparently has genes that come from other human and other species including some envelope, the gp41 from HIV", informs Dr. Judy. 
 
So, what is the HIV's gp41? Online sources describes gp41 as a protein of HIV that acts as the key to infecting human bodies, resulting in the functional failure of the immune system. If the discovery by Judy and her colleagues are established, it would mean that the infectious part of the Wuhan virus, the S Protein, incorporated the sequence of the HIV key protein. This made Joshua think of the immunodeficiency symptoms in people infected. 
 
Gen. Robert Spalding alleges, "They were doing research on a human transmittable Coronavirus that was actually published in a paper. The research that they actually published shows that Dr. Shi and her team working on developing a coronavirus for the human host. This leads to the question, why would anyone be creating a coronavirus that can infect humans? What would be the purpose of that research? Is it for a weapon? Is it so that you can then create a vaccine that you are the sole recipient of the profits from?". 
 
He further says, "The Chinese have full access to our databases. They have full access to all that research that comes out. They have full access to all our universities that train their scientists, and they have full access to our scientists. This was proved with the recent indictment of the Head of the Chemistry Department at Harvard. I mean this is the Thousand Talents Program, tens of thousands of the world's most brightest people, in all of these different areas, that are going to China to help them with their programs. And all of these programs, as you know, have a dual use capability." 
 

The Secret Wuhan P4 Laboratory and China's war to dominate the world 

The Coronavirus outbreak occurred in Wuhan, the same location as the P4 laboratory where Shi Zhengli and her team were based and which housed highly similar viruses.
January 23rd, 2020. The Wuhan virus exploded. While Wuhan announced the lockdown of the city, Shi Zhengli and her team released a paper stating that the Wuhan coronavirus was of probable bat origin. This was published in Nature on February 3rd. The paper indicated that the Wuhan virus utilized the same key as SARS to gain entry into the human body. She also announced the 2019-nCoV genome sequence was 96.2% consistent with a bat coronavirus originating in Yunnan, China, called RaTG13, signaling a natural source of the Wuhan virus. However, Shi Zhengli's natural origin assertion was doubtful. The outbreak occurred in Wuhan, the same location as the P4 laboratory where she was based and which housed highly similar viruses. Common sense would lead the government to first inspect the P4 laboratory for any leakage incident and potential safety concerns. Instead, they shifted public attension from the P4 laboratory to the Huanan Seafood Market that sold no bats and designated it as the origin of the disease. 
 
At the same time, authorities sealed off all virus samples, prevented international experts from joining the investigation, and used national television to slander doctors such as Li Wenliang who disclosed the outbreak, for spreading rumors. If the Wuhan virus indeed emerged naturally, why would the CCP need to censor relevant news or block investigations? Could the Wuhan P4 laboratory have its secrets? Virus samples and genome sequences may be the exact ingredients we need to find our answers.
 
 

a_1  H x W: 0 x 
The infamous P4 Laboratory in Wuhan was closed for any inspection by Chinese authorities even before expert virologists were able to study the virus strain 
 
  
Gordon Chang say, "When I first heard of the coronavirus, I was deeply concerned. Almost every disease that starts in China begins in Guangdong province, the province that surrounds Hong Kong in the south, but Wuhan is in the central portion of the country and so this was extremely unusual. And the fact that it might've started close to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the P4 bio safety lab, really was extremely troubling. It's not a conspiracy theory to think that the coronavirus came from the Wuhan lab. We don't know at this point. And until we know, the theory about the lab origin is certainly something that we should consider." 
 
Joshua noticed that after the outbreak, the Wuhan Institute of Virology kept strangely quiet. Under normal circumstances, as the nation's highest level of Virology Research Institute, it should be the first one to actively respond when the entire country is working around the clock attempting to control a disease like this. One that so closely fits the type of viruses its scientists were researching. In contrast, the Institute had a highly visible demonstration on CCTV of their efforts to detect and prevent the outbreak of virus in pigs of Guangdong in 2018. It should be noted that the Wuhan Institute displayed a series of abnormal events since the start of 2020. 
 
January 2nd, an email from the Director-General of the Institute to all internal staff was circulated. The subject was "Notice regarding the strict prohibition of disclosure of any information related to the Wuhan unknown pneumonia." National Health Commission clearly mandates that all detection, empirical data, results, and conclusions related to this outbreak cannot be published on self-media or social media, nor disclosed to any media including state media or collaborative organizations, including any technical services companies. 
 
January 21st, a new drug, Remdesivir, provided for free by the United States to China for Wuhan coronavirus treatment was preemptively patented by the institute. 
 
February 3rd, Dr. Wu Xiaohua blew the whistle using his real name, that Shi Zhengli's haphazard laboratory management may have led the Wuhan virus to leak from the lab. 
 
February 4th, Chairman of Duoyi, Xu Bo, blew the whistle using his real name, that the Wuhan Institute of Virology was suspected of manufacturing and leaking the Wuhan virus. 
 
February 7th, top biochemical weapon expert of the People's Liberation Army, Chen Wei, officially assumed control over Wuhan Institute of virology's P4 laboratory. 
 
February 14th, Chinese leader, Xi Jinping, called for the inclusion of bio security into China's national security framework and to accelerate the introduction of a bio security law.

Chinese Doctor Li Wenliang who died of Wuhan Virus had warned
fellow medics in December but police told him to stop "making false comments"
 
 
February 15th, the institute refuted widely spread rumors on Chinese social media that a female graduate, Huang Yanling was patient zero and had perished. However, Huang's photo, CV and thesis were all removed from the Institute's official website, leaving only her name. 
 
February 17th, institute researcher Chen Quanjiao blew the whistle using her real name, that Director General of the institute, Wang Yanyi was suspected of leaking the virus. 
 
Chinese authorities sealed off all virus samples, prevented international experts from joining the investigation, and used national television to slander doctors such as Li Wenliang who disclosed the outbreak. 
 
Judy Mikovits says after she graduated from the university of Virginia in 1980 her first job was to go to the National Cancer Institute, which was housed at Fort Detrick, Maryland, the same place that houses the USAMRIID US Army Research Institute on Infectious Disease, the bio safety level 4 facility equivalent of the Wuhan facility. "At these facilities, it's where investigators who, I went in there myself, you can see the breakdowns in safety and it's everywhere. That's why I have no doubt the Chinese bio safety level 4 was just as lacking in safety, in rigor. You can argue that they don't care", says Judy. 
 
If a laboratory is suspected of leaking the virus, military biochemical weapons expert assumes control under bio-security laws. This shows that the P4 laboratory is not an ordinary academic research institute. Joshua then decided to start from the beginning of the Wuhan P4 lab. 
 
On January 23rd, the day Wuhan was locked down, French website challenges.fr published an article that revealed many details of the collaboration between France and China to establish the P4 laboratory in Wuhan. In 2003, after the SARS outbreak in China, the Chinese Academy of Sciences requested assistance from the French government to build the Virology Research Center of the highest level. With the support of then French Prime Minister, Raffarin, the two countries signed a contract to jointly construct the P4 laboratory, under a wave of contention. 
 
According to the contract, French architect RTV in Lyon was responsible for the engineering of the laboratory. However, Chinese authorities switched the work to a local Wuhan architect IPPR. Based on research conducted by the General Directorate of External Security, IPPR had close ties to subsidies of the Chinese military, some of which were already targets of concern by the American CIA. Within the 12 subsidiary departments, there was even a specific Military Management Office.
  
The French delayed repeatedly, given security concerns. It wasn't until 2017 before the Wuhan P4 laboratory was operational and French security continued to suspect that the Chinese regime was conducting biochemical weapons experiments. 
 
Who is the real boss of the P4 laboratory? The Wuhan P4 laboratory was a subsidiary of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which is managed by China Academy of Sciences. The director of the laboratory was Yuan Zhiming who was also the head of Chinese Academy of Sciences' Wuhan chapter. Design and funding for construction were the responsibilities of the ex-Vice Presidents of the Academy, Jiang Mianheng from 1999 to 2011 and Chen Zhu from 2000 to 2007. Jiang Mianheng was the eldest son of ex-CCP leader, Jiang Zemin. After Jiang Zemin ascended to power after the Tiananmen Square massacre, his son entered the Academy and led the Institute of High Technologies Research and Development. 
 
Jiang Mianheng created the Shanghai Institute of Life Sciences and together with China Academy of Sciences, Shanghai colleges and universities, Shanghai hospitals, military hospitals, and research institutions, formed a profit group of life sciences organizations. They controlled China's major life sciences research projects and allocation of massive funding. 
 
Jiang Zhicheng, son of Jiang Mianheng, is the controlling shareholder of WuXi AppTech, which in turn is controlling Fosun Pharmaceutical, China's agent for Remdesivir. Effectively, Jiang Zhicheng is the kingpin behind the specific medicine for the outbreak. Meanwhile, Chen Zhu is the current president of the Red Cross Society of China, which had faced numerous scandals since the outbreak. 
 
In 1999, while Jiang Zemin was in power, the People's Liberation Army published a book, 'Unrestricted Warfare', in which strategies for a weaker nation to combat a stronger nation are discussed in the context of modern warfare. One of the authors, Qiao Liang wrote, after the first Taiwan Strait crisis, we realized that if the Chinese and American military fought head on, we are at a disadvantage. Therefore, we need a new strategy to help our military tilt the balance of power. This new strategy is called 'Unrestricted Warfare', a variety of means beyond all limits, without any restrictions. It could be military related, including guerrilla warfare, terrorism, biochemical warfare, or it could be non-military related such as drug trafficking, poisoning, environmental destruction and computer virus dissemination. 
 
Israeli expert in biological warfare and former intelligence officer, Dany Shoham published a paper in 2015 in India's Journal of Defense Studies. He pointed out that China will not miss, skip, or abandon any highly advanced technology, especially military related technology. The article noted that China had 12 facilities related to the Ministry of National Defense and 30 subsidiary facilities of the PLA, participating in the research, development, manufacturing, testing or storage of biological weapons. 
 
Dr. Francis Boyle, a Harvard PhD, famous for drafting the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, clearly expressed, the novel coronavirus we're seeing here is an offensive biological warfare weapon. 
 
The Federation of American Scientists indicated similar concerns in an evaluation report. The organization believed that the CCP possessed advanced chemical warfare projects, including research, development, manufacturing, and weaponizing capabilities. The CCP is usually known to have a proactive biological warfare portfolio, including state funded and sponsored research activities. 
 
Anothy Shaffer, Former CIA Trained Intelligence Officer says, "So Wuhan, as an area, I think is critical by the fact that there's a lot of concern about what China's ambitions are regarding long term global domination. I can say that their military doctrines indicated that they intend to be the dominant political and military force to Pacific Rim. I've talked to senior members of the Trump administration who had conversations with the senior Chinese generals and that's what they basically said. It's in their doctrine too. So we have to examine this new clue. So this Wuhan biological warfare is one piece of the puzzle. Does this mean something to these other things we're already seeing? Because the Chinese have already kind of stated this is their objective. So I think we have to analyze it through that lens. What does this mean to the larger political narrative of what China wants to do to dominate the region and potentially the world?"

 Jiang Zhicheng, controlling shareholder of WuXi AppTech, which in turn controls Fosun Pharmaceutical, China's agent for Remdesivir, is seen as the kingpin behind the outbreak
 
Gordon Chang says that US doesn't have to speculate about being at war. "Last May, the communist party, through People's Daily, carried a piece which said that there was a "people's war" against the United States. They've declared war on us. We have to respond. There is a war. China's told us there's one."  

Facing The Chinese Communist Virus 

Experts say that a aggressive disinformation campaign has been unleashed globally by the Chinese communist party which aims to deflect blame over the Chinese regime's botched handling of the Wuhan Coronavirus.
  
At present the Wuhan Coronavirus pandemic has spread to about 180 countries with no signs of slowing down. The United States announced a state of national emergency. Europe became the new center of the outbreak. The world's largest art museum, the Louvre, and the Eiffel Tower closed to the public. Tragic scenes, previously only found in Hollywood films, are now playing out live on the world stage. And given how closely it seemed to align with the Chinese regime's narratives, one can't help but question the role the WHO had in this catastrophic pandemic. 
 
Columnist Gordon Chang says from the very beginning of the Coronavirus outbreak, the communist party has done its best to prevent the CDC and others from studying the origin of this disease. "We don't know what's there, but the fact that the communist party is covering this up, it should trouble us deeply. 
 
Investigative author James Grundvig says, "You see the World Health Organization take over YouTube and what's amazing is now at the bottom of every YouTube video, even from Chris Martenson with his daily updates, I think it's just reading facts. Now it's the World Health Organization is a forced link to go to their site. So for any person who doesn't know who the World Health Organization is, they go there to get the propaganda, not the facts, not the truth. They get the propaganda. They get the talking points from the World Health Organization." 
 
Alleging that even big Social Media companies have fallen prey to the propaganda, James Grundvig says, "It's a shame that American corporations, especially social media like Google, like Facebook and Twitter, they're trying to sensor, or ban, or shadow ban, or manipulate algorithms, so on and so forth to prevent an actual honest conversation. The best way this is going to be answered, all this, we want the truth." 
 
Judy Mikovits says the biggest issue she has learned over her 40 year career is it's not really fighting the viruses and learning how to treat the viruses but fighting a system that is determined to cover up and persecute anyone who reveals the truth behind. 
 
"Today, the World Bank, many of the international institutions have essentially adopted a posture whereby if the Chinese communist party tells them to do it, they're going to do it. I'm not surprised at all by what the WHO says I'm not surprised at all by IKO, which basically has been blocking people from that tweet about Taiwan. I mean the whole system, and this is why, by the way, the national security strategy that came out in December of 2017 says what it says, which is we need to protect our societies, not just the United States, but all democracies. We need to rebuild them, not invest Chinese communist party regime and the belt and road initiative and made in China 2025 and we need to inspire people again to believe in democracy.", says Gen Robert Spalding. 
 
Columnist Gordon Chang says every country has diseases, but in China they become national emergencies and global emergencies because the real disease here is communism. Joshua says a sprawling and aggressive disinformation campaign has been unleashed globally by the Chinese communist party. The propaganda push, which has escalated in recent weeks, aims primarily to deflect blame over the Chinese regime's botched handling of the Wuhan Coronavirus, sow discord internationally, and portray the image that the regime has contained the outbreak. 
 
During the investigative interview process of Joshua Philipp, well-known scientists who once suggested a laboratory origin of the virus declined to be interviewed one after another. Some avoided the topic of virus origin completely. Some had already composed scientific arguments but abruptly retracted their papers. I felt as if a giant net of censorship was cast by the CCP over virologists around the world. Silence at this time could have consequences for the health and lives of billions of people. 
 
Anthony Shaffer alleges involvement of prominent media organisations in this CCCP sponsored censorship. "I watch CNN, I watch Fox, I watch CBS and I try to make my own assessment and a lot of the time you could figure out what's really going on by what they're not saying. And in this case, there's a lot of things not being said." 
 
Gen Robert Spalding alleges, "Bottom line, they want to make money from China. They fear the Chinese repercussions if they air this stuff. It's just gives you an indication of how powerful the Chinese Communist Party is. Chinese Communist Party suppressing speech in the West because these companies make money from China and they're afraid that they're not going to make, that the Chinese Communist Party is going to punish them if they essentially publish this stuff or, or allow it to be aired. There is no other reason." 
 
Shaffer says we have to recognize the audience who haven't seen it. "I highly recommend Chernobyl because the same basic governance model that screwed up Chernobyl, I would argue is now in charge of the response of the Coronavirus. So whatever you saw go wrong in Chernobyl, you could still see that potential here. I'm not saying it's going to be that bad. I'm just saying that the party, the central party is the thing which they want to protect, their power and people and nation issues are secondary to the continuation of power." 
 
Gordon Chang says the Communist party is maligned and it is grossly irresponsible. "It has pressured governments to keep their borders open and it had to know that would result in the fast spread of Coronavirus to other countries. This is the worst sort of behavior and the world's got to understand that there will not be peace. There will not be good order and stability in the world as long as the communist party rules China", says Chang. 
 
James Grundvig says The Wall Street Journal writes a piece as China is a sick man of Asia. "It needs to be corrected. It's not China the sick man of Asia. It is the Chinese Communist party, that's the sick man of Asia". Gordon Chang says, "The communist party has policies that people abhor and it's not just it’s reaction to the Coronavirus. We see this with the suppression of rights, also with holding perhaps a million people, maybe even three million people in concentration camps. So this is just the essential nature of Chinese communism. Chinese communism is evil." 
 
On March 24, Texas lawyer, Larry Klayman, filed a complaint in the Texas federal court seeking at least $20 trillion USD from the Chinese government. Klayman said in a statement that Chinese people are a good people but their government is not and it must be made to pay dearly. On April 4, the British think tank, Henry Jackson Society advocated for compensation of 351 billion pounds from the CCP to the UK, and the government should pursue it through the international courts. The same report called for a total compensation of 3.2 trillion pounds to the G7 for the damages caused by the cover-up of the outbreak. On the same day, the All India Bar Association filed a complaint to the United Nations Human Rights Council seeking an unspecified amount as reparations from China over the global spread of coronavirus.

Evidently, the CCP violated the International Health Regulations. The United States and the international community must regain its senses and take the following actions: 
  1. Reveal the truth through investigations
  2.  Initiate sanctions against the CCP and
  3. Seek massive restitution for the worldwide public health emergency resulting in tremendous health and economic loss.
Gen Spalding says let us start protecting ourselves. "Let's start rebuilding our country. Let's start investing in our people. Let's start inspiring people to love democracy and transparency and open markets, not what the Chinese have. So I mean this gives us a real opportunity to kind of reevaluate the world we want to live in and fight for the right side of that world. I want them to see the true nature of the Chinese Communist Party because when they do, they're going to wake up and when that happens, democracies will begin to flourish again and when that happens, perhaps, just perhaps the people of China will have this chance." 
 
Joshua says this virus must have a message for all of us as people of this earth. We need to take a break from our busy schedules and seriously consider the repercussions of our ever-expanding scientific research and development. Did we go too far? Do our desires and ambitions go against the laws of nature and pull us further from the direction given by heaven? Maybe when this virus lifts, we can again find our traditional values, rediscover kindness and virtue, family and community. I believe that viruses can't survive where hearts have compassion, concludes Joshua Philipp in the documentary.
