It is difficult to get reliable information about coronavirus. The information difficulty is further complicated by interest groups using the outbreak for their own agendas.
many both inside and outside China are using the spread of the virus to criticize the Chinese government.
Others, both inside and outside China, claim the virus is a bioweapon unleashed on China by the US.
Still others say the global elite has decided to implement a program to reduce the world population and
that Bill Gates, one of the global elite, said some months ago that a global pandemic would break out at this time.
Some Internet sites attract traffic by posting reports of massive numbers of Chinese deaths and crematoriums running 24/7. The official Chinese story has been that the virus originated in a market that sold wild animal meat.
The fact remains that Wuhan, apparently a city larger than any in the US, has been locked down for a month.
Francis Boyle (University of Illinois) is an expert on biowarfare weapon research. He wrote the Biological Weapons Anti-terrorism Act of 1989, which is the US implementing legislation for the 1972 Bio-Weapons Convention.
In interviews (see for example,
Boyle says he has read four scientific studies that confirm beyond doubt that the coronavirus is an engineered bioweapon. The studies show that the virus has elements added to make it easy to spread and elements that reduce the ability of the immune system to resist the virus.
Boyle reports that the bio-engineering work that makes the virus easy to spread was done at the University of North Carolina, and that the work that allows HIV to be added was done in an Australian facility.
He shows that Chinese scientists from the Wuhan BSL-4 biowarefare lab were present in both the UNC and Australian labs and participated in the research.
The Chinese scientists returned to Wuhan, each with an essential part that enabled the Wuhan lab to produce what we call the coronavirus, the official name of which is CoVid-19.
Boyle says that the virus’ escape was an unintended event, and that such escapes from biowar labs have happened before.
It is not out of the question that the United States and Europe will soon be experiencing what China is experiencing.
If so, there will be much disruption of life.
If an outbreak of the virus in America and Europe is only a couple of weeks away, it will be interesting to see if the West handles the challenge any better than the East.
