China is blocking one more World Health Organization investigation into COVID-19’s origins, extra proof that Beijing performed some position in the origins of a pandemic that’s killed 4.5 million.
Of course, China’s leaders have been mendacity from the beginning, generally with WHO’s connivance.
WHO scientists have sought entry to bat caves and wildlife areas in China’s Enshi prefecture in Hubei province, six hours west of Wuhan — in search of samples that might determine animals that served as intermediate hosts for the virus to unfold from bats to people.
This could be proof for the “evolved naturally” speculation, which might absolve China of most blame for the plague. Beijing clearly fears (or is aware of?) that the WHO researchers would discover nothing, and thus bolster the “lab leak” principle.
Fears — or is aware of: China’s authorities additionally received’t say if it ever itself examined Enshi bats or farm-raised wild animals for the virus.
The Chinese Communist Party is nonetheless pretending that the pandemic originated elsewhere, making it to Wuhan by way of packaged meals from abroad or somesuch nonsense.
Beijing’s habits suggests it now is aware of the bug truly leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology after being engineered to infect people.
Definitive proof of both principle might by no means come, however it’s apparent which one the CCP not less than thinks is appropriate.
