Can't Make This Up: Beijing Begins Construction Of A P-3 Biolab
18 May 2020
Recall that in a May 6 press briefing, Pompeo accused China of covering up the Covid-19 outbreak as it emerged in the central city of Wuhan, saying Chinas National Health Commission had ordered destruction of samples of the virus on Jan. 3.
Asked about those comments at a press briefing in Beijing on Friday, NHC official Liu Dengfeng confirmed that the commission had issued these guidelines at that time "for pandemic prevention and control, which also played an important role in preventing biosafety risks."
"If the laboratory conditions cannot meet the requirements for the safe preservation of samples, the samples should be destroyed on the spot or transferred to a professional institution for safekeeping," said Liu, supervisor of the commissions Department of Health Science, Technology and Education.
Chinese law has clear rules for the handling of highly pathogenic samples, he said, and we are sure that it does... but wait a gosh darned minute? According to Dengfeng, China is basically admitting that the coronavirus samples - which were held in China's P-4 rated, top "biosafety" lab in Wuhan which incidentally is also where the virus was leaked from according to a mountain of circumstantial evidence - were not safe in the Wuhan lab and thus had to be destroyed?
Considering that one of the core arguments made by the Trump administration (and this website) is that the virus (whether genetically engineered or otherwise) was released (hopefully without premeditation although there is no way of knowing for certain) by the Wuhan lab, China's actions essentially confirm that the Wuhan Institute of Virology was unsafe, and thus every last sample of the virus had to be destroyed.
Of course, the real reason why China destroyed the samples was different, and it had to do with not only destroying all the evidence but crushing any hope of finding what the real source of the pandemic was. As the WSJ reported, "Public health experts say it is likely too late to investigate the role of the market in Covid-19s spread and that proving its origin might now be impossible." And with China destroying the last remaining coronavirus samples, well - there goes any hope of proving or disproving that the virus emerged from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Just as China wanted.
