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.

Drugging ‘Transgender’ Children Results in Greater Risk of Suicide, According to New Analysis
The transgender industry is fudging the numbers.
One of the big lies told by the LGBT movement is that so-called “gender-affirming care” helps transgender individuals avoid the massively-elevated risk of suicide associated with the lifestyle.
These are the lies perpetrated by pro-trans groups such as The Trevor Project in order to stop legislation meant to protect children from being drugged and prepared for mutilation by profit-driven doctors who have made a mockery of their Hippocratic Oath.
“Medical affirming care can include treatments that postpone physical changes as well as treatments that lead to changes that would affirm one’s gender identity. Pubertal suppression, commonly known as “puberty blockers,” is used to delay the onset of puberty, and hormone therapy is used to promote gender-affirming physical changes. Pubertal suppression and hormone therapy are two components of patient-centered care for youth that have been supported by empirical evidence,” the Trevor Project writes on their website to advocate the drugging of children.
However, an analysis by Intellectual Takeout shows that these “empirical studies” are being severely misrepresented, and that drugging children to prevent natural bodily development isn’t good for their mental and physical health after all.
Bioethics writer Michael Cook came to the conclusion that one commonly cited study from Sept. 2019 is methodologically dubious. It came to the conclusion “gender identity conversion efforts” are associated with an “increased odds of lifetime suicide attempts.”
The study recruited 27,715 people through LGBT advocacy organizations, was authored by transgender people with a clear agenda to promote their own lifestyle, ignored the differences between people with gender dysmorphia and people who identify as transgender, and did not control for individuals with psychiatric illness.
“The number of persons who at one point suffered from GD but no longer do far outnumbers those who have persistent and consistent GD and thus identify as transgender,” a critic of the study pointed out.
Cook also noted many problems with another study that determined “access to puberty blockers during adolescence is associated with lower odds of transgender young adults considering suicide.” This study from the journal Pediatrics is routinely used to justify the drugging of vulnerable and confused children who have been led to believe they are transgender.
However, the actual results of the study seem to show that this conclusion is grossly misleading at best. The study demonstrated virtually no difference in people who considered suicide and made a plan to do it in the past year for those on puberty blockers against those not on puberty blockers. It also showed that the percentage who actually went through with a suicide attempt actually increased slightly within those on puberty blockers versus those not on puberty blockers.
The most startling statistic found in the study was that the number of individuals who attempted suicide and were hospitalized in the last 12 months actually doubled from 22.8 percent to 45.5 percent when comparing those off puberty blockers with those on the harmful drugs. The data is fudged, Cook believes, because proponents of transgenderism focus on suicide attempts and suicidal thoughts of people over the course of their lifetime, which are inherently less accurate.
Cook notes that “memories of a whole lifetime are bound to be foggy; memories of the past 12 months will be sharper and more accurate.”
“For parents, it must be terrifying when trans kids talk about suicide. But most of them eventually break through their emotional confusion and will be happy with their gender identity. In most cases, parents just need to wait out the storm,” Cook wrote.
“What should really terrify them is the reality of transitioning. Like poor Jazz Jennings, their kids could end up mutilated for life – and still they might be at risk of committing suicide,” he concluded.
When it is all said and done, the medical treatment of transgender children could go down as one of the most ghastly examples of scientific atrocities in all of human history.
