WTF? China Is Now Pushing The Idea That COVID-19 Did NOT Start In China — Do You Buy It?

Written by K. Walker on November 22, 2020

Chinese propagandists are working overtime to distance the coronavirus from China.

Officials in Beijing have “pounced” on a recent study that suggests that the coronavirus pandemic was spreading in Italy as early as September — three months before it was confirmed to be spreading in Wuhan, China.

How we can tell that China is suddenly telling the truth since in the early days of the pandemic they were withholding information from the World Health Organization, outright lying to the public, and there was a sudden rash of “disappearances” of whistleblowers.

Nevertheless, they’re now insisting that the SARS-CoV-2 virus didn’t originate in Wuhan, but spread in Italy and was brought to China.

They’ve been pushing several different theories on the origin of the virus, one pretty vile rumor was to suggest that the virus was brought by the U.S. military during the Military World Games held in Wuhan in October 2019. They’ve also suggested that imported frozen food packages are a vector for the spread of the virus and have clamped down on imports.  

The Asian nation has also previously questioned Spain about the origins of the pandemic, as well as the US military, claiming it brought the virus to Wuhan in October last year during the Military World Games, the report said.

Chinese state media have now been strongly pushing the idea that the new study by the National Cancer Institute proves that the contagion likely started in Italy, not China, according to the UK paper.

“This once again shows that tracing the virus’s source is a complex scientific question that should be left to scientists,” China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said, according to the UK Times. “[It] is a developing process that can involve multiple countries.”

China’s “Batwoman” who studies these coronaviruses has also said that she can “prove” that COVID-19 didn’t start in her lab in Wuhan.

China has been censoring information investigating the origin of the Coronavirus and now — a year later and after their buddy Biden is set to step in as POTUS — they’re suggesting that it began somewhere else?

That seems pretty sketchy to me.
