This post is a chronicle of events leading up to, and including the CCP virus pandemic, including the history of how we got here.
It is the most comprehensive timeline out there.
The timeline is constantly updated, and there is still much to be added.
If you feel there is a relevant event missing, please send us a link.

03/01/97 – Gilead Sciences press release; ‘Donald H. Rumsfeld Named Chairman of Gilead Sciences’
“Gilead Sciences Inc. (Nasdaq: GILD) today announced that board member Donald H. Rumsfeld will assume the position of Chairman, effective immediately. Mr. Rumsfeld succeeds Michael L. Riordan, M.D., who founded Gilead in 1987 and has served as Chairman since 1993. Dr. Riordan will continue to serve as a director on the board.”
Rumsfeld joined the Bush admin after serving on the board of Gilead, and was instrumental in the U.S. government commissioning Gilead to produce Tamiflu, a useless flu-shot. The government contract did wonders for Gilead’s stock price. Rumsfeld still held a large position in Gilead Sciences at the time.
Feb/99 – The People’s Liberation Army of China publish a book titled; “Unrestricted Warfare”, discussing how weaker nations can fight against stronger nations in the context of modern warfare.
It details the CCP’s continuation of the Soviet Union’s campaign of ideological subversion upon the West during the cold war.
Author Qiao Liang wrote; “After the first Taiwan Strait crisis, we realized that if 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” [PDF]
22-23/06/01 – A senior-level bio-terrorist attack simulation, code named Operation Dark Winter, was conducted from June 22–23, 2001.
It was designed to carry out a mock version of a covert and widespread smallpox attack on the United States. Tara O’Toole and Thomas Inglesby of the Johns Hopkins Center for Civilian Biodefense Strategies (CCBS) / Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), and Randy Larsen and Mark DeMier of Analytic Services were the principal designers, authors, and controllers of the Dark Winter project.
The similarities to the event ‘Event 201’ – a pandemic exercise held just before the CCP virus pandemic – is eerily similar, including fictitious news reports on the outbreak.
-Johns Hopkins U; About the Exercise.
-The full script of the exercise can be read here.
-The name for the exercise derives from a statement made by Robert Kadlec, the current head of the department’s coronavirus response.
-The D.W. simulation was co-hosted by the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, which is currently led by Dark Winter co-author Thomas Inglesby.
18/11/01 – Soon after the terrorist attacks of 9/11, letters laced with anthrax began appearing in the U.S. mail. Five Americans were killed and 17 were sickened in what became the worst biological attacks in U.S. history.
The full story is far to involved to recount here, however in retrospect, it’s commonly agreed the attacks were a false flag to get the U.S. into war with Iraq.
The anthrax-laden letter attacks were specifically directed at two Democratic Party Senators, Patrick Leahy and Tom Daschle. When they received the contaminated letters both lawmakers were engaged in questioning provisions of the post-9/11 emergency measures legislation known as the Patriot Act. Both Senators Leahy and Daschle were hesitant to rubber stamp the enactment that was seemingly instantly drafted and put before Congress within three weeks of the 9/11 debacle.
20/01/20 – CT Now reports; ‘Anthrax Missing From Army Lab’
“Lab specimens of anthrax spores, Ebola virus and other pathogens disappeared from the Army’s biological warfare research facility in the early 1990s, during a turbulent period of labor complaints and recriminations among rival scientists there, documents from an internal Army inquiry show.“
29/03/02 – Science publishes an article; ‘Biological Weapons and International Law’
2003 – The Chinese Academy of Sciences approved the construction of a BSL-4 laboratory (Bio Safety Level – 4 is a set of biocontainment precautions required to isolate dangerous biological agents in an enclosed laboratory facility, 4 being the highest level).
Jacques Chirac, the French president at the time of the deal, pushed for the Wuhan institute to be set up after the 2003 SARS outbreak, which affected 26 countries and resulted in more than 8,000 cases and 774 deaths.
Mr Chirac, along with his pro-Beijing prime minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin, promised French funding and expertise in return for a share of the intellectual copyright on the lab’s discoveries.
The lab was designed and constructed with French assistance as part of a cooperative agreement on the prevention and control of emerging infectious diseases. But the complexity of the project, China’s lack of experience, difficulty in maintaining funding and long government approval procedures meant that construction wasn’t finished until the end of 2014.
04/11/03 – NBC reports; ‘Scientists race to patent the SARS virus’
“SAN FRANCISCO — Researchers around the world are racing to patent the SARS virus and its genetic material, rekindling criticism of laws that allow people to claim intellectual property rights on living things.”
14/11/03 – A patent is filed for a genetically modified Coronavirus. One of around 3,500 patents listed for laboratory deletions, mutations and variations of the coronavirus. Patent; WO 02/086068 A2
2004 – Michael Barnier, the then French foreign minister at the time, gave the green light for the French assistance venture to begin at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) – despite French intelligence warnings that China’s poor bio-security reputation could lead to a catastrophic leak.
As part of the deal, up to 50 French scientists were expected to travel to Wuhan to help the Chinese run the laboratory properly – but they never went.
02/03/04 – Chicago Tribune reports; ‘FBI hits wall in anthrax investigation’
“The FBI’s profile of the mastermind behind the anthrax attacks envisions an unsociable suspect who holds grudges and seeks revenge long-distance but lacks the personal skills for face-to-face confrontations.”
23/04/04 – WebMD reports; ‘China Reports SARS Death Caused by Lab Leak’
“April 23, 2004 — Chinese health officials have confirmed four suspected cases of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), including one death, which appear to have been caused by a safety breach at a laboratory studying the SARS virus.”
25/04/04 – The Scientist publishes; ‘SARS escaped Beijing lab twice’
“The latest outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in China, with eight confirmed or suspected cases so far and hundreds quarantined, involves two researchers who were working with the virus in a Beijing research lab, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Monday (April 26).”
30/04/04 – The WHO reports; ‘China confirms SARS infection in another previously reported case; summary of cases to date – Update 5’
“Chinese authorities have today reported test results confirming that the 53-year-old woman who died in Anhui Province on 19 April was infected with the SARS coronavirus. The woman, a medical doctor, was the mother of a 26-year-old postgraduate student who had been conducting research at the National Institute of Virology in Beijing. The student remains hospitalized in Anhui.“
09/06/04 – The California Department of Health Services (CDHS) was notified of possible inadvertent exposure to Bacillus anthracis spores at Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute (CHORI), where workers were evaluating the immune response of mice to B. anthracis.
08/04 – PubMed publishes a study; ‘The physiological impact of wearing an N95 mask during hemodialysis as a precaution against SARS in patients with end-stage renal disease’
10/02/05 – The WHO publishes it’s definition of a pandemic [archive]; that it required “An influenza pandemic occurs when a new influenza virus appears against which the human population has no immunity, resulting in several, simultaneous epidemics worldwide with enormous numbers of deaths and illness.”
22/08/05 – Virology Journal publishes an article; ‘Chloroquine is a potent inhibitor of SARS coronavirus infection and spread’
“We report, however, that chloroquine has strong antiviral effects on SARS-CoV infection of primate cells. These inhibitory effects are observed when the cells are treated with the drug either before or after exposure to the virus, suggesting both prophylactic and therapeutic advantage. In addition to the well-known functions of chloroquine such as elevations of endosomal pH, the drug appears to interfere with terminal glycosylation of the cellular receptor, angiotensin-converting enzyme 2. This may negatively influence the virus-receptor binding and abrogate the infection, with further ramifications by the elevation of vesicular pH, resulting in the inhibition of infection and spread of SARS CoV at clinically admissible concentrations.” [archive version]
31/09/05 – Vice-Chairman Of China’s Military Commission, Comrade Chi Haotian, delivers a speech to top officers and generals of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), detailing China’s need to colonize either the U.S., Canada, Or Australia, specifically projecting the use of using bio weapons, as they don’t render land unliveable.
“Would the United States allow us to go out to gain new living space? First, if the United States is firm in blocking us, it is hard for us to do anything significant to Taiwan and some other countries! Second, even if we could snatch some land from Taiwan, Vietnam, India, or even Japan, how much more living space can we get? Very trivial! Only countries like the United States, Canada and Australia have the vast land to serve our need for mass colonization..”
19/01/06 – A patent is filed; ‘Compositions of coronaviruses with a recombination-resistant genome’ for a genetically modified Coronavirus. One of around 3,500 patents listed for laboratory deletions, mutations and variations of the coronavirus. Patent number: 7618802
Patent granted 2009.

04/10/07 – The United States Government Accountability Office releases a study; ‘HIGH-CONTAINMENT BIOSAFETY LABORATORIES Preliminary Observations on the Oversight of the Proliferation of BSL-3 and BSL-4 Laboratories in the United States’
09/10/07 – Patent: US7279327B2, ‘Methods for producing recombinant coronavirus’ is granted to University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill,
One of the applicants is Ralph S. Baric. His name is found on dozens of coronavirus patent applications and grants.
“A helper cell for producing an infectious, replication defective, coronavirus (or more generally nidovirus)”
2008 – The Thousand Talents Plan or Thousand Talents Program (TTP) was established by the central government of China to recognize and recruit leading international experts in scientific research, innovation, and entrepreneurship – in other words to steal American technology.
Read more on the Thousand Talents Program here.
05/08/08 – WSJ reports; ‘Bruce Ivins Wasn’t the Anthrax Culprit’
“Over the past week the media was gripped by the news that the FBI was about to charge Bruce Ivins, a leading anthrax expert, as the man responsible for the anthrax letter attacks in September/October 2001…“
13/02/09 -The East-West Centre, a research institute under the US state department, reached out to its Chinese counter-part, and asked for their “expectation lists” on China policy under the new Obama administration.
The new president received the report immediately after he took power in 2009. The report is titled; ‘The Pivotal Relationship – How Obama Should Engage China’.
Half of it was written by Liu Xuecheng, from the China institute of international studies – a CCP controlled institute.
It’s common for new presidents to receive foreign policy reports, but one co-authored by a Chinese national under the regime of the CCP is unprecedented in US history.
“We hope that the new administration can understand the position of the Chinese people and will not arrange meetings with the Dalai Lama and other Tibetan separatists in any official capacity.”…” I hope the new administration will make its broad points in public, but save its specific human rights questions, those about particular individuals, for private deliberations with the Chinese.”
The messages appeared to be received well, although clearly the closed door policy on human rights discussions didn’t work.
18/04/09 – The W.H.O. changes is definition of a pandemic right before H1N1 swine flu is declared a global pandemic. It originally reads; “An influenza pandemic occurs when a new influenza virus appears against which the human population has no immunity, resulting in epidemics worldwide with enormous numbers of deaths and illness.”
On May 20th, this was changed to; “A disease epidemic occurs when there are more cases of that disease than normal. A pandemic is a worldwide epidemic of a disease. An influenza pandemic may occur when a new influenza virus appears against which the human population has no immunity.”
This enables the WHO to declare just about anything a global pandemic or a “Public Health Emergency of international Concern” or (PHEIC). This change in definition allows for the use of and implementation of stockpiles of vaccines, such as the failed and fraudulent Tamiflu (Donald Rumsfeld’s scam) from none other than Gilead Sciences, manufacturer of the failed and repurposed Ebola virus, known in 2020 as; Remdesivir, a very expensive treatment for the CCP virus, with questionable results.
A PHEIC allows the WHO to enact sweeping powers, including mobilizing NATO, and instructing governments to buy vaccines. Of course, the WHO and the usual rogue’s gallery of global health ‘experts’ profit from the vaccine sales enormously.
05/05/09 – Konan Michel Yao, A former researcher at the National Microbiology Laboratory (NML) in Winnipeg, Canada, caught trying to smuggle genetic material from the Ebola virus across the Manitoba-North Dakota border, into the US.
15/09/09 – In an address to the Regional Committee for Europe (59th Session) [original deleted by WHO – archive] WHO Director-General Chan said “ministers of health” should take advantage of the “devastating impact” swine flu will have on poorer nations to get out the message that “changes in the functioning of the global economy” are needed to “distribute wealth on the basis of” values “like community, solidarity, equity and social justice.” She further declared it should be used as a weapon against “international policies and systems that govern financial markets, economies, commerce, trade and foreign affairs.“
08/12/09 – F. William Engdahl, geopolitical analyst, publishes an article; ‘WHO ‘Swine Flu Pope’ under investigation for gross conflict of interest’
“The man with the nickname “Dr Flu”, Professor Albert Osterhaus, of the Erasmus University in Rotterdam Holland has been named by Dutch media researchers as the person at the center of the worldwide Swine Flu H1N1 Influenza A 2009 pandemic hysteria. Not only is Osterhaus the connecting person in an international network that has been described as the Pharma Mafia, he is THE key advisor to WHO on influenza and is intimately positioned to personally profit from the billions of euros in vaccines allegedly aimed at H1N1.“
09/12/09 – Reuters reports; ‘U.S. rejects biological weapons checks’
“GENEVA (Reuters) – President Barack Obama is sticking to the U.S. refusal to negotiate monitoring of biological weapons, the top U.S. arms official said Wednesday.”
10/12/09 – The CDC publishes a press briefing transcript [archive]; ‘Weekly 2009 H1N1 Flu Media Briefing’
It discusses the fact that swine flu has proved to be vastly milder than ordinary seasonal flu. It kills at a third to a tenth the rate, according to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates. Data from other countries like France and Japan indicate it’s far tamer than that.
29/12/09 – AFP reports; ‘WHO chief yet to be vaccinated against swine flu’
“GENEVA — World Health Organization chief Margaret Chan revealed Tuesday that she has yet to be vaccinated against the swine flu virus, which has killed over 11,500 people world-wide.
“I have asked my medical service to enquire where I can go to get my vaccination,” she told reporters in Geneva, pointing out that she has just returned from leave.”
20/01/10 – Corbett Report publishes; ‘Insult to Injury: Why We Must Oppose the WHO Global Tax Proposals’
“Fresh on the heels of a Dutch investigation into the conflicts of interest of their chief influenza advisor and the bombshell announcement that the Council of Europe will be probing their role in creating and sustaining panic over the recent H1N1 outbreak in order to sell vaccines for Big Pharma, the World Health Organization is now considering “innovative” proposals for raising additional revenues, including levying a global tax on internet activity.”
22/01/10 – The WHO releases a now deleted statement on allegations of faking a pandemic [archive]; ‘Statement of the World Health Organization on allegations of conflict of interest and ‘fake’ pandemic’
26/01/10 – The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), a human rights watchdog, publicly investigates the WHO’s motives in declaring a pandemic. (Original article deleted) [archive]; ‘PACE to prepare report on the handling of the Swine Flu pandemic’
29/01/10 – Corbett Report publishes; ‘WHO’s Chan: Public’s Obedience to Health Officials “May Be Fading”‘
“Lamenting the likely outcome of recent revelations that the WHO knowingly and unnecessarily hyped the recent H1N1 influenza panic, WHO Director-General Margaret Chan admitted: “The days when health officials could issue advice, based on the very best medical and scientific data, and expect populations to comply, may be fading.””
The remarks came in Chan’s report to the WHO Executive Board at the biannual meeting of the board in Geneva this month.
05/02/20 – Forbes publishes an article [archive]; ‘Why The WHO Faked A Pandemic’
“But there’s more than bureaucratic self-interest at work here. Bizarrely enough, the WHO has also exploited its phony pandemic to push a hard left political agenda.
In a September speech WHO Director-General Chan said “ministers of health” should take advantage of the “devastating impact” swine flu will have on poorer nations to get out the message that “changes in the functioning of the global economy” are needed to “distribute wealth on the basis of” values “like community, solidarity, equity and social justice.” She further declared it should be used as a weapon against “international policies and systems that govern financial markets, economies, commerce, trade and foreign affairs.“
*Interestingly; this article, which has been online for over 10 years, was recently scrubbed from the internet.
20/02/10 – Bill Gates gives a TED talk called; ‘INNOVATING TO ZERO’.
Here is a quote from the TED talk (04:33-04:50): “First, we’ve got population. The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s headed up to about nine billion. Now, if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by, perhaps, 10 or 15 percent, but there we see an increase of about 1.3.”
13/04/10 – Corbett Report reports; ‘WHO Appoints H1N1 Cover-Up Committee’
“Reports that the WHO is appointing an ‘independent’ committee to investigate its own conduct in the H1N1 panic of 2009 has been tempered by the fact that one of the committee’s members, John Mackenzie, was in fact one of the advisors who urged the WHO to declare a pandemic in the first place. He also has ties to vaccine manufacturers, making him part of the very charge being investigated: that the WHO relied on advisors with a financial interest in declaring a pandemic regardless of the facts on the ground.”
05/10 – The Council of Europe releases it’s findings on the WHO’s handling of the 2009 swine flu pandemic H1N1; ‘The handling of the H1N1 pandemic: more transparency needed‘
16/06/10 – The BMJ publishes a report on the WHO’s questionable handling of the 2009 H1N1 swine flu pandemic; ‘WHO and the pandemic flu “conspiracies”
It specifically notes there was conflicts of interest in the advisory panel that was advising the WHO on whether or not the H1N1 pandemic was worth declaring as an emergency, and thus requiring huge sales a of vaccines.
04/02/11 – Bill Gates, in an interview with CNN’s Dr Sanjay Gupta, titled; ‘Bill Gates: Vaccine-autism link “an absolute lie” said; ”… and then invent the vaccines — and we only need about six or seven more — and then you would have all the tools to reduce childhood death, reduce population growth, and everything — the stability, the environment — benefits from that.”
The interview’s page has since been removed from CNN’s site, and all re-uploads are removed from social media quickly, although multiple transcripts still exist online, as does an archived version of the interview.
12/09/11 – Ron Fouchier Ph.D, of the Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, at the annual European Scientific Working group on Influenza, held in Malta, told an audience of scientists how a mutated avian H5N1 virus he created has the capability to evolve in mammals to achieve airborne transmissibility. In other words, he had created the world’s most dangerous virus. We “mutated the hell out of H5N1,”…“The virus is transmitted as efficiently as seasonal flu”, and that was when “someone finally convinced me to do something really, really stupid,” Fouchier recounted. They put the mutated H5N1 into the nose of one ferret, then took a sample of nasal fluid from that ferret and put it in the nose of another. After 10 ferrets, the virus began spreading from ferret to ferret via the air just about as easily as a seasonal flu virus.
29/09/11 – Dr Judy Mikovits fired for refusing to keep silent that the blood supply was contaminated with XMRV’s, a pathogen found in mice brains that was used in vaccines. Dr Mikovits went on to prove this was the cause of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), and some leukemia.
10/10/11 – Propublica publishes; ‘Was FBI’s Science Good Enough to ID Anthrax Killer?’
“Federal prosecutors say sound science connected U.S. Army scientist Bruce Ivins to the anthrax letter attacks in 2001. But a former FBI official involved in the case now says more research was needed to make the scientific evidence strong enough to be used in court.“
18/11/11 – Dr Mikovits house raided, without a warrant.
“I was fired, jailed, without cause, without hearing, without any civil rights at all, just drug out of my house in shackles one day, on November 18th, 2011, I refused to denounce the data, I refused to say it was a mistake, we have the data, I showed the data, I showed all of the data, and I just refused, they basically said tell everybody you made it all up, and you can go home. And if you don’t, we’ll destroy you. And they did.”
She was arrested without a warrant and held in jail for 5 days without the opportunity for bail as a fugitive from justice, and was given a 4-year gag order. Her career was destroyed. Her story is documented in the book ‘Plague: One Scientist’s intrepid Search For the Truth about Human Retroviruses and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Autism, and Other Diseases’.
Ironically, the FDA has now approved a testing protocol to detect retroviruses in the U.S. blood supply which is worth millions of dollars, and based in large part on Dr. Mikovits’ research, but it is being managed by Big Pharma.
So while this distinguished scientist is now bankrupt and without employment, others are allegedly capitalizing on her research to earn millions of dollars to clean up the U.S. blood supply.
23/11/11 – Science reports; ‘Scientists Brace for Media Storm Around Controversial Flu Studies’
“ROTTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS—Locked up in the bowels of the medical faculty building here and accessible to only a handful of scientists lies a man-made flu virus that could change world history if it were ever set free.”
20/12/11 – The US National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity (NSABB) recommends that two articles in press, but yet to be published, about the new variants showing how a deadly form of avian influenza H5N1 could be made to pass between mammals, poses too great a security risk to be published — even if partially redacted.
21/12/11 – The Guardian reports: ‘US government urges scientists to censor findings on new strain of bird flu’
“In November, Dr Fouchier told a reporter on the journal, Science, that the strain of bird flu his team had created was “probably one of the most dangerous viruses you can make.” The journal quoted Paul Keim, the chair of the NSABB, who worked extensively on anthrax, saying: “I can’t think of another pathogenic organism that is as scary as this one. I don’t think anthrax is scary at all compared to this.”
2012 – Ms. Huang Yan Ling 黄燕玲 (patient zero in the CCP virus pandemic) was recommended to enter the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) by Southwest Jiao tong University. This is still evident from WIV website, although her pic and bio (bottom right) have been recently removed.
(Some links from theWIV website have been scrubbed, and some are now password protected. I will add the screenshots taken early Feb. via a photo sharing service)
20/01/12 – a 60 day moratorium on H5N1 research is agreed by 39 leading flu scientists after a fierce row erupted over whether it was safe to publish two papers reporting that the introduction of a handful of mutations that enabled the H5N1 virus to spread efficiently between ferrets.
17/02/12 – The World Health Organization also recommends that the articles should be withheld to allow more discussion on the impact of publishing the results. The 60 day ban is extended to a 12-month period at a meeting convened by the World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva, allowing time for the field to discuss how to proceed safely.
The moratorium would only be lifted, experts at the meeting agreed, once funders and regulators had worked out the biosafety and biosecurity conditions that would allow such research to be conducted with reasonable guarantees of safety. The meeting also resulted in a public-relations campaign to influence public opinion about the research and its potential benefits.
“There is a preference from a public health perspective for full disclosure of the information in these two studies. However there is significant public concern surrounding this research that should first be addressed,” says Fukuda.
30/03/12 – The US National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity (NSABB) changes its recommendation from December, 2011. After a two-day meeting, the board decided to revise its earlier decision, and the NSABB unanimously recommended full publication of one of the two disputed papers, a manuscript submitted to Nature by Yoshihiro Kawaoka of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and his colleagues.
The closed meeting was stacked in favour of their full publication, says participant Michael Osterholm. A security briefing that Osterholm says influenced many of the NSABB members was, he writes, “one of them [sic] most incomplete and, dare I say, useless classified security briefings I’ve ever attended”.
Osterholm has worked on biosecurity issues for the US Department of Health and Human Services for the past 20 years.
The revised NSABB opinion brings the board closer in line with the World Health Organization, which last month also advised full publication of both papers.
Richard Ebright, a molecular biologist and bio-defense expert at Rutgers University, said the new rules are “a tremendous step forward“, but the rule’s Achilles’ heel, he adds, is that although research funders will have to inform their parent government departments of the outcomes of reviews and any mitigation measure taken, there seems no mechanism to allow independent oversight of these. That is “a very big weakness“, he says, and could result in what seems to be a comprehensive scheme not being applied effectively in practice.
31/03/12 – The Scientist publishes an article: ‘Deliberating Over Danger’.
“The creation of H5N1 bird flu strains that are transmissible between mammals has thrown the scientific community into a heated debate about whether such research should be allowed and how it should be regulated”.
02/05/12 – Nature publishes the first of the controversial articles; ‘Experimental adaptation of an influenza H5 HA confers respiratory droplet transmission to a reassortant H5 HA/H1N1 virus in ferrets’.
It’s the first report of a bird flu virus adapted for transmission in ferrets.
“Avian H5N1 influenza viruses in the wild may be one small step away from spreading effectively between mammals.” That was the sobering message from the controversial study by Yoshihiro Kawaoka at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, published online after months of debate about how to release the findings publicly.
13/06/12 – a 60-year-old Saudi man was admitted to a private hospital in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, with a 7-day history of fever, cough, expectoration, and shortness of breath. He had no history of cardiopulmonary or renal disease, was receiving no long-term medications, and did not smoke.
Egyptian virologist Dr. Ali Mohamed Zaki isolated and identified a previously unknown virus from his lungs.
After routine diagnostics failed to identify the causative agent, Zaki contacted Ron Fouchier Ph.D., a leading virologist at the Erasmus Medical Center (EMC) in Rotterdam, Netherlands, who suggested that Zaki test for a coronavirus.
The test came up positive. Zaki mailed Fouchier a sample.
Zaki’s actions resulted in handing sovereign and intellectual-property rights on the first diagnostic tests or treatments over to an institute in the Netherlands. Saudi authorities were not happy. They claim that Zaki kept them in the dark about his work, including his shipment of the virus to the Netherlands. Zaki claims he notified them but nobody responded.
Fouchier sequences the new virus using a broad-spectrum “pan-coronavirus” real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) method, and tentatively names it ‘betacoronavirus 2c EMC (hCoV-EMC)’ after Erasmus Medical Centre, before WHO intervened and rechristened the virus as MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome).
The virus was first named HCoV-KSA1, for human coronavirus from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
18/06/12 – Egyptian virologist Dr. Ali Mohamed Zaki claims that he complied with procedures by submitting a virus sample on the 18th of June, and associated clinical data to the Saudi health ministry, and that the ministry did not sufficiently follow up.
22/06/12 – Science publishes the second article: ‘Airborne Transmission of Influenza A/H5N1 Virus Between Ferrets’.
It’s the second of the two controversial bird flu papers published, revealing that just five mutations can render the virus transmissible to mammals (ferrets). Ron Fouchier is an author;
“After more than 6 months of heated discussion, the second group that succeeded in making the H5N1 avian flu transmissible between ferrets, considered a good model for human transmission, has published its results. The paper, which came out today in Science, demonstrates that only five mutations are needed to confer this aerosol transmissibility among mammals, and that re-assortment between different types of viruses—a technique used by the other group, which published its results last month in Nature—is not necessary.”
*Further reading; ‘How Ron Fouchier Created A Mutant H5N1 Virus’ – article, Great Game India.
20/10/12 – Dr Zaki announces the discovery on the website ProMED-mail, an online disease-reporting system. To little, to late.
17/12/12 – a large, two day international workshop is convened by the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland, to discuss ‘gain-of-function’(GOF) research and how to lift the ban and move forward with resuming research.
The scientific community remained divided on whether the practical benefits of the research outweigh the risks of an accidental or deliberate release of a lab-created flu strain.
Ian Lipkin, a specialist on emerging infectious diseases at Columbia University in New York, believes that the risks are high and, worse, that such research may end up being done in labs with insufficient biosafety standards.
Anthony Fauci, then the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), had said prior to the workshop that he is keen to restart the research before the final policy is published months from now. He intends to hold a discussion on future plans for this work at the annual meeting of the NIAID Centers of Excellence for Influenza Research and Surveillance in New York at the end of July, which will be attended by many of the moratorium’s signatories. “I can’t say that the moratorium will officially end then, but we are certainly going to address the topic at that meeting,” he says, “to get some research going on an interim basis.”
17/12/12 – Elizabeth Hart, a prominent authority on the biotech industry, submits a letter of opposition to the CDC: ‘A submission to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) re Opposition to Lab-engineering of Potentially Lethal Pathogens’ [PDF]
“On the subject of H5N1, the US National Institutes of Health should be brought to account for funding research into making H5N1 more transmissible. As I ask in my letter to the NSABB, noted above, is the US breaching the Biological Weapons Convention2 by sponsoring the development of a potentially lethal flu virus?”
21/12/12 – The Scientist publishes an article: ‘The End of Days for H5N1 Moratorium?’
“Such studies were at the crux of the moratorium because they provided the possibility of engineering new mutations into the virus that could make it more easily transmissible or more virulent. However, many researchers have stated that these types of experiments are crucial for understanding how the virus might naturally mutate into a more dangerous, pandemic-causing strains, and thus such research could help prevent natural outbreaks, or help to more quickly develop a vaccine. The risk, however, is that one of these viruses could escape the lab”.
23/01/13 – A 12-month ban on H5N1 research is to be lifted. Anthony Fauci, said at a meeting, according to ScienceInsider; “It’s become clear from the chatter in the community that they were patiently waiting for this particular event.”
In a letter simultaneously published on 23 January by Nature and Science, the 40 scientists involved say that the moratorium has served its purpose: allowing time for authorities to review the conditions under which the research could be safely conducted and for scientists to explain the public-health benefits of the work.
Scientists now have official approval in their countries to conduct ‘gain of function’ research. “We have a public-health responsibility to resume this important work”, the letter states, “Because the risk exists in nature that an H5N1 virus capable of transmission in mammals may emerge”.
The reasoning behind carrying out potentially disastrous gain of function ‘GOF’ work in order to ‘find the cure’ for the very super disease being engineered is highly questionable.
21/02/13 – The US National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced a final framework for vetting specific types of experiments before funding them. The US Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) also published a long-awaited draft policy for how scientists and institutions should monitor and report on a wide range of research that malevolent forces could manipulate to do harm. This type of research, called dual-use research of concern (DURC), is fundable if the potential benefits are deemed significant and the risks deemed manageable.
The policy was not applied until the 24th of November, 2014.
26/02/13 – The WHO holds an Informal 2 day consultation on Dual-Use Research of Concern (DURC) in Geneva.
Dual use research pertains to gain of function work that could be used for science or bio-terrorism.
04/05/13 – A sample of the new corona virus originally taken from the Saudi patient is sent from the Netherlands by Ron Fouchier, to the Winnipeg BSL-4 facility where it is received by Dr Frank Plummer.
The Canadian lab grew up stocks of the virus and used it to assess diagnostic tests being used in Canada. Winnipeg scientists worked to see which animal species can be infected with the new virus.
The Canadian BSL4 lab in Winnipeg will go on to be the center of a Chinese spying scandal in 2019.
12/03/14 – The CDC’s influenza lab contaminated a harmless flu strain with the highly dangerous H5N1 variety, and sent it to a laboratory operated by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) in Athens, Georgia. The mistake was discovered on 23 May, but Tom Frieden says that he was not notified until 9 July. “Why it took six weeks for that to be made apparent, I can think of no valid explanation,” he says.
Michael Osterholm, a public-health expert at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis says he sees the H5N1 incident as a reason to question ‘gain-of-function’ (GOF) research that involves engineering disease-causing viruses to make them more deadly, in order to understand what might happen if such viruses evolved naturally to become more pathogenic.
01/06/14 – The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), headed by Tony Fauci, approves $3.4 million USD in funding, ending 24 April 2020, for the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) for research into gain-of-function work on bat viruses. [Archive]
13/06/14 – Michael Farrell, The head of the Bioterror Rapid Response and Advanced Technology Laboratory in Atlanta, Georgia, is reassigned in the wake of an anthrax leak scare, after workers accidentally shipped highly dangerous H5N1 influenza virus to another government laboratory. More than 80 people were pre-emptively treated for anthrax infection.
The CDC then said that the lab never needed to work with Bacillus anthracis in the first place; another bacterium would have sufficed to test the diagnostic equipment that the lab was evaluating.
On 20 June, the US Department of Agriculture took over the investigation to avoid conflicts of interest.
19/06/14 – The CDC issue media statement; CDC Lab Determines Possible Anthrax Exposures: Staff Provided Antibiotics/Monitoring.
19/06/14 – Marc Lipsitch of Harvard and Alison P. Galvani of Yale wrote regarding Fouchier and Kawaoka’s work; COMMENTARY: The case against ‘gain-of-function’ experiments: A reply to Fouchier & Kawaoka’
“Recent experiments that create novel, highly virulent and transmissible pathogens against which there is no human immunity are unethical … they impose a risk of accidental and deliberate release that, if it led to extensive spread of the new agent, could cost many lives. While such a release is unlikely in a specific laboratory conducting research under strict biosafety procedures, even a low likelihood should be taken seriously, given the scale of destruction if such an unlikely event were to occur. Furthermore, the likelihood of risk is multiplied as the number of laboratories conducting such research increases around the globe.”
01/07/14 – Smallpox is found sitting alive and well in an unsecured US government refrigerator. FDA researchers discovered the vials, labelled “variola”, the name of the virus that causes smallpox, while conducting an inventory of the lab in preparation for a move to the FDA’s White Oak site in Silver Spring. The NIH believes that the box that held the smallpox vials dates back to the 1950s.
11/07/14 – Nature publishes an article: ‘US disease agency suspends pathogen shipments’
“Workers at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia, accidentally shipped highly dangerous H5N1 influenza virus to another government laboratory in March, the agency revealed today. The news comes weeks after the CDC announced that dozens of its employees were potentially exposed to anthrax because its staff did not follow established laboratory safety guidelines.”
16/07/14 – Nature publishes an article detailing sudden unannounced and unexplained sweeping changes on the 13 of July 2014, at the National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity (NSABB), including eleven of the 23 members being replaced, with their replacements being pre-chosen.
A number of the people who were let go were the institutional authorities on ‘gain of function’ work. “They were making it seem as if we had somehow been overworked, though we’d done nothing in two years,” says Michael Osterholm, a public-health expert at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. “It is to the point where a number of us weren’t sure if we should laugh or we should cry.”
In addition the board’s budget was reduced by 50%, and a new charter was formed that omits language directing the NSABB to develop criteria for identifying, overseeing and regulating dual use research of concern (DURC).
On 14 July, four of the ousted NSABB members and other biosecurity experts met in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in a meeting originally convened to address their growing concern about gain-of-function experiments on pathogens such as H7N9 flu, and submitted a statement, saying; “experiments involving the creation of potential pandemic pathogens should be curtailed”.
18/07/14 – Newsweek reports; ‘What Happens if the WHO Declares Ebola an ‘Emergency of International Concern’?’
“The first decision on the table at the emergency meeting currently underway is whether or not to place the Ebola outbreak in the officially-designated category of “public health emergencies of international concern” (PHEIC). If the UN Director-General agrees with the committee, that designation could trigger an immediate “internationally coordinated response” to contain and control the outbreak. That could mean anything from mobilizing NATO military assets, to restricting travel in and out of countries where Ebola is present, according to Stephen Morrison, the director of the Global Health Policy Center at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.”
24/09/14 – Nature publishes an article: ‘US announces rules for potential bioterror agents’.
“A long-awaited US government policy on biological research that could be used for terrorism or other nefarious purposes is little changed from a draft released 19 months ago, despite receiving 38 comments from institutions and researchers concerned that it goes either too far or not far enough. The centrepiece of the policy, released on 24 September, is a set of guidelines for researchers working on 15 specific pathogens or toxins. But the rules do not regulate experiments that engineer pathogens not on the list to make them more deadly – so-called gain-of-function research. Officials from the White House and US National Institutes of Health (NIH) say the government will be addressing these concerns in coming weeks.”
The White House released its first draft policy on dual-use research of concern, or DURC, first drafted February 2013. The policy requires researchers at institutions that receive funding from the US government and are working with one of 15 specific pathogens or toxins to notify their institutions if there is potential that their work could be misused.
Such experiments would include the controversial creation of a mutant flu virus that is deadlier and more transmissible between animals.
17/10/14 – A year-long moratorium (ban) on research into ‘gain of function’ research is established. [PDF].
The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) announces it’s launching a detailed review into so-called ‘gain-of-function’ research, in which pathogens are manipulated to alter their capabilities, and will suspend funding for research that makes certain viruses more deadly or transmissible.
“NIH has funded such studies because they help define the fundamental nature of human-pathogen interactions, enable the assessment of the pandemic potential of emerging infectious agents, and inform public health and preparedness efforts,” National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins said in a statement; “These studies, however, also entail biosafety and biosecurity risks, which need to be understood better.”
21/10/14 – The Scientist publishes an article; ‘Moratorium on Gain-of-Function Research’
“In the wake of a handful of biosafety lapses at federal research facilities, the US government is temporarily halting funding for new studies aiming to give novel functions to influenza, SARS, and MERS viruses.”
21/10/14 – The NIH issues a letter directing the halting of gain-of-function research, but also states the halt is voluntary they may carry on until the funding is complete or they have ‘transitioned’ the work.
22/10/14 – Nature publishes; ‘US suspends risky disease research’
“The US government surprised many researchers on 17 October when it announced that it will temporarily stop funding new research that makes certain viruses more deadly or transmissible. The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy is also asking researchers who conduct such ‘gain-of-function’ experiments on influenza, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) to stop their work until a risk assessment is completed — leaving many unsure of how to proceed.”
2015 – Alain Merieux, the French billionaire who was instrumental in setting up the Wuhan laboratory in partnership with his Institut Merieux in Lyons, abandoned the project in 2015, saying: “I am giving up the co-chairmanship of [the] P4 [Wuhan laboratory], a Chinese tool. It belongs to them, even if it was developed with technical assistance from France.“

“Four years ago, the protein called CRISPR-Cas9, an enzyme that bacteria use to attack viruses that infect them, was unknown to humans. Now it is ubiquitous in science labs as the most efficient way of cutting-and-pasting DNA yet invented. Wired Magazine, in a breathless cover story, just called it “The Genesis Engine,” instructing readers to “buckle up” because the easy DNA editing CRISPR enables will change the world. And now at least one CRISPR-focused company has the cash to back up the hype.”
09/11/15 – Shi Zheng-li of the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) co-authors a controversial paper with Ralph S Baric, a prominent US epidemiologist; ‘A SARS-like cluster of circulating bat coronaviruses shows potential for human emergence’, which described the creation of a new virus by combining a coronavirus found in Chinese horseshoe bats with another that causes human-like severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in mice. This research sparked a huge debate at the time over whether engineering lab variants of viruses with possible pandemic potential are worth the risks.
Funding from USAID and EcoHealth Alliance was not originally acknowledged.
12/11/15 – Nature publishes an article: ‘Engineered Bat Virus stirs Debate Over Risky Research’
“An experiment that created a hybrid version of a bat coronavirus — one related to the virus that causes SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) — has triggered renewed debate over whether engineering lab variants of viruses with possible pandemic potential is worth the risks.”
16/11/15 – Italian state owned media Company, Radiotelevisione Italiana (Rai), exposed efforts by China on viruses. The video showed how Chinese scientists were doing biological experiments on a SARS connected virus believed to be Coronavirus, derived from bats and mice, asking whether it was worth the risk in order to be able to modify the virus for compatibility with human organisms.
16/11/15 – The Scientist publishes an article: ‘Lab-Made Coronavirus Triggers Debate’.
The creation of a chimeric SARS-like virus has scientists discussing the risks of gain-of-function research.
“Ralph Baric, an infectious-disease researcher at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, last week (November 9) published a study on his team’s efforts to engineer a virus with the surface protein of the SHC014 coronavirus, found in horseshoe bats in China, and the backbone of one that causes human-like severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in mice. The hybrid virus could infect human airway cells and caused disease in mice, according to the team’s results, which were published in Nature Medicine.”

09/01/17 – Science publishes an article; ‘White House announces review process for risky virus studies’
“Concerns about so-called “gain-of-function” (GOF) virus studies—which make viruses more transmissible in humans or able to cause sickness or death—ignited 6 years ago when two virologists revealed that they had tweaked the deadly H5N1 avian influenza to make it spread more easily in mammals. Although meant to help experts prepare for pandemics, some worried that these studies could result in a lab escape of a deadly human-made virus. Scientists themselves briefly halted, then resumed the H5N1 studies.”

18/10/17 – Tedros announces that he has chosen President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe to serve as a WHO Goodwill Ambassador to help tackle non-communicable diseases for Africa. He said Zimbabwe was “a country that places universal health coverage and health promotion at the centre of its policies to provide health care to all“.
Mugabe’s appointment was severely criticized, with WHO member states and international organisations saying that Zimbabwe’s healthcare system had in fact gone backwards under his regime, as well as pointing out Mugabe’s many human rights abuses. Observers said Tedros was returning a campaign favour. Mugabe was chair of the African Union when Tedros was endorsed as a sole African Union candidate in a murky selection process.
The editor-in-chief of Lancet, a prominent medical journal, called Tedros “Dictator-General”.

19/01/18 – The U.S. Embassy in Beijing took the unusual step of repeatedly sending U.S. science diplomats to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), which had in 2015 become China’s first laboratory to achieve the highest level of international bioresearch safety (known as BSL-4).
They sent two official warnings back to Washington about inadequate safety at the lab, which was conducting risky studies on coronaviruses from bats.
“During interactions with scientists at the WIV laboratory, they noted the new lab has a serious shortage of appropriately trained technicians and investigators needed to safely operate this high-containment laboratory,” states the cable, which was drafted by two officials from the embassy’s environment, science and health sections who met with the WIV scientists. No extra assistance to the labs was provided by the Obama administration in response to these cables.
*UPDATE; The cables have begun to circulate again inside the administration during March/April 2020, as officials debated whether the lab could be the origin of the pandemic and what the implications would be for the U.S. pandemic response and relations with China.

06/10/19 – Based on a report of cell phone activity in and around the WIV, a sudden and total drop off of all cell activity around the lab commenced on the 11th of October, suggesting the accident happened between 6th and the 11th. Cell activity remained extremely light in the vicinity through November and December, suggesting the area around the lab was cordoned off and road blocks were in place.
An unconfirmed account by the Chinese language YouTube account, Stone, February 10, mentions that the virus was spilled by a courier while it was being transported to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV). For fear of punishment, the carrier did not report any accidents that occurred during the transportation.
Huang Yanling is reported to have opened the transport container, not wearing sufficient PPE, as she expected the virus to be safely contained, and directly inhaled a massive viral load, dying shortly after.
Huang Yan Ling is patient zero in the CCP virus pandemic.
Her shocked and distressed colleagues disinfected the body, and sent it for cremation immediately, but they did not forewarn the crematorium staff, who handled the body unknowingly, and became infected.
One of the crematorium employees then visited the wet market, or perhaps worked there as well, and due to the ideal unhygienic conditions, particularly the communal toilets, the virus took hold in the market, and became the first cluster, giving the appearance that the market was the source.

These sessions take place annually throughout China, and authorities mobilize stability maintenance systems to get rid of troublemakers and forestall protests. Local authorities are also motivated by the desire to hide undesirable developments from Beijing.
06/01/20 – the CDC “issued a level 1 travel watch — the lowest of its three levels — for China’s outbreak. It said the cause and the transmission mode aren’t yet known, and it advised travelers to Wuhan to avoid living or dead animals, animal markets, and contact with sick people.” The CDC offered to send a team to China to assist with the investigation. The Chinese government declined, but a WHO team that included two Americans would visit February 16.

“Receiving influenza vaccination may increase the risk of other respiratory viruses, a phenomenon known as virus interference. Test-negative study designs are often utilized to calculate influenza vaccine effectiveness”…” Vaccine derived virus interference was significantly associated with coronavirus and human metapneumovirus; however, significant protection with vaccination was associated not only with most influenza viruses, but also parainfluenza, RSV, and non-influenza virus coinfections.”
Dr Judy Mikovits said “The game is to prevent the therapies until everyone is infected and push the vaccines knowing that the flu vaccines increase the odds by 36 percent of getting COVID-19,”, citing the study of military personnel indicating that flu vaccines cause a spike in coronavirus cases.

“The epidemic situation is still severe and complex, the most severe challenge since SARS in 2003, and is likely to develop into a major public health event,” the memo cites Ma as saying.
Some of the memo’s contents also appeared in a public notice about the teleconference, stripped of key details and published in February.
It would be another 6 days until Xi Jinping announced the threat to the public.
It was during these six days that the city of Wuhan tried to break a Guinness world record by hosting the largest potluck banquet ever, attended by more than 40,000 families, and millions traveled from the city in preparation for the Chinese New Year festivities.
Without the six-day delay the epidemic might have been contained in Wuhan, without spreading throughout the whole world.

27/02/20 – The South China Morning Post reports that research by a team from Nankai University shows that novel coronavirus is far more likely than SARS to bond to human cells due to HIV-like mutation, meaning its ability to bind with human cells could be up to 1,000 times as strong as the SARS virus.

14/03/20 – The Global Times, a CCP state-media outlet reports; Truckloads of medical supplies donated by China arrive in Italy’
This is part of China’s ‘mask diplomacy’ – trying to improve damaged relations and the image of the CCP by supplying masks under the guise of a donation, but often they are part of a purchased order. A few days later Italy became the first G7 nation to join The CCP’s ‘Belt & Road Initiative’ (BRI).
This is not the first time a European country has criticized China, especially over its faulty PPE goods, then received a phone call, and then went on to make a public statement about how well China has handled their pandemic, and how great the quality of their masks are.
China has repeatedly threatened to withhold medical equipment and supplies to any nation that is critical of the CCP’s cover-up.
Recently, the German government complained that Chinese diplomats were soliciting letters of support and gratitude for Beijing’s aid and efforts against the virus from government officials and the heads of major German companies.

There is also the question of conflict of interest in the Nature Medicine article. Some of the authors of that article, as well as a February 2020 Lancet letter condemning “conspiracy theories suggesting that COVID-19 does not have a natural origin” — which seemed calculated to minimize outside scrutiny of bio-defense lab work — have troubling ties to the bio-defense complex, as well as to the U.S. government.
Notably, neither of these articles makes clear that a virus can have a natural origin and then be captured and studied in a controlled laboratory setting before being let loose, either intentionally or accidentally — which is clearly a possibility in the case of the CCP virus.

28/04/20 – The Washington Times op-ed; ‘Coronavirus hype biggest political hoax in history’
“The new coronavirus is real.The response to the coronavirus is hyped. And in time, this hype will be revealed as politically hoaxed.
In fact, COVID-19 will go down as one of the political world’s biggest, most shamefully overblown, overhyped, overly and irrationally inflated and outright deceptively flawed responses to a health matter in American history, one that was carried largely on the lips of medical professionals who have no business running a national economy or government.
The facts are this: COVID-19 is a real disease that sickens some, proves fatal to others, mostly the elderly — and does nothing to the vast majority.
That, in a nutshell, is it.”

That’s helped them forge ahead to schedule tests on human volunteers to prove it’s safe and effective.”
29/04/20 – The Lancet publishes results from an inconclusive China study of Gilead’s repurposed treatment drug Remdesivir. Gilead’s stock price drops 4% on the news. That afternoon Seeking Alpha posts an article; ‘Fauci gives his blessing to remdesivir’, quoting Fauci, president, as saying the trial of remdesivir is “quite good news, with the data showing clear cut significant positive effect in diminishing the time to recovery.”
The FDA, he says, is working with Gilead on the availability of the drug. Gilead flooded the media with positive releases about its two trials (both of which were missing mortality data), drowning out concern about the Chinese trial whose results had already been published in the Lancet, showing no clinical benefit for the drug. The Chinese study (negative results leaked last week, and details published this morning) was “underpowered, not adequate,” says Fauci.
29/04/20 – A research paper is published ahead of peer review on BioRXrv; ‘Spike mutation pipeline reveals the emergence of a more transmissible form of SARS-CoV-2’
“The new strain, which has been dubbed ‘Spike D614G’ has been proliferating in Europe since at least mid-February, and spread to become the dominant form during the month of March. It is far more contagious than the original strain which emerged from Wuhan, for reasons as yet unknown.
Wherever it emerged it became dominant very quickly, and in some countries it became the only common strain within weeks. The paper notes that the rapid global spread of the coronavirus has provided it with “ample opportunity for natural selection to act upon rare but favorable mutations.’’ Furthermore, if the virus does not wane away as the weather warms in summer there will be nothing to stop it mutating into more and more strains.”

While the company suggested this meant more patients could be treated with the drug, the lack of a control group rendered the results all but meaningless.

“The U.S. intelligence community has concluded that the Chinese government does not know the full extent of the coronavirus outbreak within the country, the New York Times reported on Thursday.
China’s government has encountered difficulties collecting accurate data on the spread of the coronavirus because mid-level bureaucrats in Wuhan and elsewhere in China have been lying about the number of cases, current and former intelligence officials told the Times. Local administration officials in China fear that their superiors will punish and even fire them if they report high numbers of cases.”
It remains to be seen how they will test 11 million people in a week. China watchers have speculated that the fact that the CCP announced this plan to the world suggests the results may not be accurate, or that it may even be a global PR exercise.

“With the 2020 election coming up, a recent article—written in Chinese—by a Chinese think tank has caught the attention of China watchers on Twitter. It has raised debate about what kind of candidate China wants, and it means for the future of U.S.-China relations. A translation of the article is titled “In order to improve the U.S.-China relationship, why we must win over America’s left-wing?” This came not long before President Donald Trump said he believes that Beijing “will do anything they can” to make him lose in 2020. The author of the article referred to “those American left-wing or liberal elites” who think they know a lot about China as “China Knowers” or 知华派 (zhi hua pai), and he recounted their contribution to China’s rise over the years”. The article said that because the American Left is too naive and arrogant, they think the US engagement with China will eventually help the regime embrace more liberal democratic values. It adds that “they had drawn wrong conclusions… it’s exactly their mistakes that we (China) took advantage of and won over opportunities for our own (Chinese) development, and reduced the resistance to our (China’s) uprising.”
In summary, the article states that Left “mistakenly” put faith in eventual Chinese liberalization due to their naive idealism, vouched for China, and we took advantage of that strategic opportunity.
