Tweet Of The Day- Covid 19


From an article (updated since March) published in October by The New York Times, we learn that the World Health Organization's

expert team offers a long list of recommendations for additional research: more testing of wildlife and livestock in China and Southeast Asia, more studies on the earliest cases of Covid-19 and more tracing of pathways from farms to markets in Wuhan.

But it is unclear whether China, which has repeatedly hindered the W.H.O. inquiry, will cooperate. Chinese officials have sought to redirect attention elsewhere, suggesting that the virus could have emerged in the United States or other countries.

Experts say the delays in the inquiry have hurt the ability to prevent other pandemics.

“This delay has obviously compromised the ability of the investigation to reconstruct the origins of Covid-19 and identify ways of reducing the risk of such events happening again in the future,” said Michael Baker, a professor of public health at the University of Otago in New Zealand.

The world- aside from mainland China- probably will never know for certain the origin of Covid-19, thus increasing the risk of such future events. It will never know, and not be able to plan properly, because that's how the Butchers of Beijing wanted it.

As we pass from one year to the next, therefore, it's time to remember one individual who tried to alert the world to something the Butchers wanted hidden. Twenty-three months ago we read

A whistleblowing Chinese doctor who tried to raise the alarm about the coronavirus outbreak has died, a Communist party-controlled newspaper has confirmed.

Li Wenliang, 34, was declared dead at 2.58am local time on Friday morning after “emergency treatment” at a hospital in Wuhan, the Global Times reported, following hours of confusion over his fate....

Chinese police had targeted Li for “spreading rumors” in late December 2019 after he posted a warning on social media about a cluster of cases of a flu-like disease that had been treated at his hospital. Seven patients were in quarantine and the disease symptoms reminded him of Sars (severe acute respiratory syndrome), he said. He urged colleagues to wear protective clothing at work.

Four days later he was summoned to the local public security bureau, accused of “making false comments” and disturbing the social order. He was told that if he continued to talk about the disease, he would be “brought to justice”.

Li was one of eight people authorities targeted for “sharing false information”, in a heavy-handed approach that China’s supreme court later criticized. He agreed not to discuss his concerns in public again.

But in early January he treated a woman with glaucoma without realizing she was also a coronavirus patient; he appears to have been infected during the operation.

Li broke his silence to give interviews from his hospital bed.

“If the officials had disclosed information about the epidemic earlier, I think it would have been a lot better. There should be more openness and transparency,” he told the New York Times.

Officials did not disclose information earlier and actively blocked openness and transparency because that's how the Butchers of Beijing wanted it.

Our national government here in the United States of America did little to stem the widespread outbreak of Covi-19.  But it didn't start here. Washington is pushing for a real investigation (video below from 4/2021), and voters decided to toss the previous government out some 14 months ago. It's a safe bet that Xi Jinping won't suffer the same fate.
