CHINESE MAD SCIENCE: Viral Pandemic Starts in Chinese City with Research Lab for ‘World’s Most Dangerous‘ Pathogens

Chinese mad science has apparently backfired.

Published

on

A deadly coronavirus, called the Wuhan virus based on the Chinese city it emanated from, has spread to the United States with a man in his 30s being declared patient zero in Washington state.

The patient came back to the U.S. from Wuhan, China on Jan. 15. He was displaying no symptoms at the time, according to the local and federal officials who made the public announcement, but became sick the days after he initially returned.

Dr. Scott Lindquist, who works as Washington’s state epidemiologist for communicable diseases, said the patient is in stable condition but is still being isolated in a hospital “out of an abundance of precaution and monitoring.” Passengers at several airports are going to be screened for the virus moving forward in an attempt to prevent its spread. Six people have already been reported dead worldwide from the coronavirus that can cause pneumonia.

This comes years after it was announced that a controversial facility would be opened in Wuhan where Chinese scientists would study the world’s most dangerous pathogens:

A laboratory in Wuhan is on the cusp of being cleared to work with the world’s most dangerous pathogens. The move is part of a plan to build between five and seven biosafety level-4 (BSL-4) labs across the Chinese mainland by 2025, and has generated much excitement, as well as some concerns.

Some scientists outside China worry about pathogens escaping, and the addition of a biological dimension to geopolitical tensions between China and other nations. But Chinese microbiologists are celebrating their entrance to the elite cadre empowered to wrestle with the world’s greatest biological threats.

“It will offer more opportunities for Chinese researchers, and our contribution on the BSL‑4-level pathogens will benefit the world,” says George Gao, director of the Chinese Academy of Sciences Key Laboratory of Pathogenic Microbiology and Immunology in Beijing. There are already two BSL-4 labs in Taiwan, but the National Bio-safety Laboratory, Wuhan, would be the first on the Chinese mainland…

Many staff from the Wuhan lab have been training at a BSL-4 lab in Lyon, which some scientists find reassuring. And the facility has already carried out a test-run using a low-risk virus.

But worries surround the Chinese lab, too. The SARS virus has escaped from high-level containment facilities in Beijing multiple times, notes Richard Ebright, a molecular biologist at Rutgers University in Piscataway, New Jersey. Tim Trevan, founder of CHROME Biosafety and Biosecurity Consulting in Damascus, Maryland, says that an open culture is important to keeping BSL-4 labs safe, and he questions how easy this will be in China, where society emphasizes hierarchy. “Diversity of viewpoint, flat structures where everyone feels free to speak up and openness of information are important,” he says.

Yuan says that he has worked to address this issue with staff. “We tell them the most important thing is that they report what they have or haven’t done,” he says. And the lab’s inter­national collaborations will increase openness. “Transparency is the basis of the lab,” he adds.

The reckless behavior of the Chinese communists very well may have caused a worldwide health crisis.

POLL: The Wealthy, Those with Graduate Degrees Thriving During COVID Pandemic as Working People Suffer

No wonder they support draconian COVID measures the most.

Published

New polling from Morning Consult reveals that some of the demographics most supportive of draconian coronavirus lockdown measures are personally gaining the most during their implementation.

In a December poll with over 2,200 respondents, Americans with a post-graduate education and those who already make over $100,000 a year reported their personal prospects improving during 2020.

Americans who work in the technology and finance industries were unlikely to face ramifications from lockdown measures from begin with, suggesting it’s no surprise that they’d support draconian measures the most.

The polling data correlates with other information suggesting that the biggest ‘winners’ and wealthiest interests in American and western society have prospered as everyday people have suffered during the coronavirus pandemic. Globalist oligarchs leading multinational corporations have transferred obscene amounts of wealth to themselves, much of it coming as they corner market share previously belonging to small businesses that can only operate as a physical retail enterprise. In tried and true fashion, the biggest supporters of the most draconian lockdown measures don’t stand to suffer their consequences, and in fact reap their rewards.

Everyday Americans of various stripes are the ones that need the most assistance from the ravages of the pandemic, not the wealthy elite. The economic consequences of the coronavirus pandemic can’t be turned off by alleviating the draconian restrictions still in place in many of America’s progressive-Democrat states, but allowing small business owners to pick up the pieces is the first in many steps required to reverse the obscene ‘Great Reset’ of power and wealth in favor of the billionaire class.
