Suspicion Increases About the Origins of Wuhan Coronavirus Epidemic

Updated on January 26, 2020

Experts in the field of biological studies are starting to cast doubt of the origins of this new coronavirus rampaging through China and parts of the world. The Wuhan virus that mimics flu and cold viruses unless it spreads to the lungs where it causes legions was originally claimed by the Chinese it came from a bat or snake. Many experts seem to disagree with this statement because it is so rare, if ever, that transmission to humans occurs. One such expert, Bill Gertz, an Israeli biological warfare expert, stated that it may have originated in the labs of the Chinese Wuhan laboratory that also works on military biological weapons. Of course, the Chinese government deny this, but Wuhan labs became such a lab in 2017. This lab is a Level 4 that handles the most deadly pathogens.

A Canadian Connection

It was in 2017, that Chinese scientists working at the Canadian National Microbiology Lab in Winnipeg, were training how to handle these deadly pathogens. One of these, Xiangguo Qiu, was escorted out of the lab after a discovery of a "policy breach". What followed was an investigation involving virus samples being shipped to Wuhan last year. These included Ebola and Nipah. The latter, can be transmitted from animals to humans and between humans. It causes acute breathing problems and has the potential to cause brain inflammation. Death rates were 50% when a small outbreak happened in Malaysia and India. In July 2019, four Chinese virologists were forced out of the Canadian facility for some undisclosed reason where the special pathogen program was operating.

Wuhan

The Canadian mystery certainly raises suspicion about the origin of the Wuhan virus now. It is entirely plausible that the viruses were being dealt with inside the Wuhan facility for research of biological weapons. Likewise, since the effects of exposure take 10-14 days for symptoms to appear, one of the scientists became infected and unknowingly went to the Wuhan Seafood Market, just 10 miles away, to purchase food. While there, he exposed others to the new virus by coughing. This is one of Gertz's assertions.

As of this writing, 80 have died and thousands infected. The Chinese continue to change their own origins story: first, it was bat soup, then, snake meat. Obviously, the government would never disclose that their own Wuhan lab may have accidentally created their own crisis from stolen viruses from Canada. Experts differ about the validity of the origins coming from a animal because it rarely ever happens and because this outbreak suddenly happened with no early warnings.

If the Chinese were experimenting with the viruses trying to create a biological weapon, do they have a vaccine? Experts claim no vaccine can be available for almost a year, so, if within a year the Chinese suddenly develop one, this may further be evidence that the origins of the Wuhan virus was at the Wuhan laboratory and personnel were unknowingly infected and exposed the general public.

This suspicion certainly raises questions. All the dots seem to connect.

      We will probably never get to the bottom of this, but China is in biological weapons.

      Very interesting predictions. I really hope you're wrong about this... it's terrifying to imagine the possibility that China has been developing a biological weapon... and who were they planning to use it on? I hope we get some answers soon

      'Bats and snakes have been sold at wuhan marker for years and suddenly this happens?' Perhaps it was just a matter of time. I think the message we human beings should take away from this epidemic is that not all animals should be eaten and/or kept in close proximity to human beings.

      As sure as anyone can be if you read up on all the facts. Bats and snakes have been sold at wuhan marker for years and suddenly this happens? China would never admit to the snafu that would shake public confidence in the government. I think it is one of those plausible yet hard to prove situations.

      Very interesting. My question is how sure are you?
