If you’ve been paying attention to the Wuhan Flu developments, you might think there’s good news out of China.  After all the media is reporting that they have it largely under control, that the disease has run its course.

Why would anyone believe a word China says?

This week, the U.S. Intelligence Community presented a new highly classified report to President Donald Trump that showed communist China lied to the world about the number of cases and deaths from the Wuhan Flu.  The disease, as you know, originated there as well.

As Americans – and other across the globe – die from the virus, the communist Chinese leaders lied to us… letting others die to cover up their lies. 

“China’s public reporting on cases and deaths is intentionally incomplete,” Bloomberg News reported. “China’s numbers are fake.”

Their first report on January 25 showed their number of cases went from 1,287 to 17,205 in just over a week. They estimated almost two hundred thousand had experience “close contact” with the infected. (That number rose in mid-March to almost seven hundred thousand people.) To make it all worse, China acknowledged terrible timing of a festival that typically generates nearly 3 billion trips, and has been called the “largest annual human migration in the world.”

“More than 5 million people have left Wuhan due to the Spring Festival and epidemic,” the commission explained.

Now, a mere six weeks later – improbably – everything is fine over there?  As you may have seen, China reported they had zero new domestically acquired cases. Every new case, they tell us, was “imported” by those returning to China.

What?  Who on earth would believe that?  Well, you probably guessed Western media lapped it up.  On March 18th, the New York Times published an article titled: “China Hits a Coronavirus Milestone: No New Local Infections.” NPR announced  ”China Reports No New Domestic Cases, But Battles Coronavirus Imported From Abroad.”

Just a few days later, the New York Times tried to embarrass our country by proclaiming that, “The U.S. Now Leads the World in Confirmed Coronavirus Cases.”  So they doggedly tried to nail down the number of cases here in America, and blindly accepted the numbers coming out of a communist nation? 

The World Health Organization and the United Nations refer to China’s numbers as “confirmed cases,” as if the word “confirmed” has lost all meaning.

If you ask me, this sounds like the New York Times, NPR, the UN, and WHO are all playing right into China’s hands.  Since then, despite the massive outflux of Chinese citizens from Wuhan, the commission hasn’t even reported one new “domestically acquired case” per day. 

If you believe that, I’ve got a bridge in China to sell you.

Some brave people have spoken out.  Radio Free Asia quoted Wuhan resident Chen Yaohui that city officials have been bribing victims by giving them 3,000 yuan in “funeral allowances” so that the families of the dead don’t tell everyone what’s going on. “There have been a lot of funerals in the past few days, and the authorities are handing out 3,000 yuan in hush money to families who get their loved ones’ remains laid to rest.”

He went on to explain that no one believes the official numbers. “The official number of deaths was 2,500 people … but before the epidemic began, the city’s crematoriums typically cremated around 220 people a day.  But during the epidemic, they transferred cremation workers from around China to Wuhan keep cremate bodies around the clock.”

But many who have tried to blow the whistle on what’s really happening over there have been “disappeared.”

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is an evil actor on the world stage.  Tens of thousands will die, at a minimum, due to the malfeasance of the CCP.  They knew and hid the information.  They destroyed data.  

“The reality is that we could have been better off if China had been more forthcoming,” Vice President Mike Pence said, in one of his biggest understatements to date. But he went on to say that China had been dealing with this long before we even knew late 2019.  “What appears evident now is that long before the world learned in December that China was dealing with this, and maybe as much as a month earlier than that, that the outbreak was real in China.”

Scientific advisers reportedly told British Prime Minister Boris Johnson that the real numbers in China could be “15 to 40 times” higher than reported. “And [the British government] believes China is seeking to build its economic power during the pandemic with ‘predatory offers of help’ [to] countries around the world,’” reported the Daily Mail.

Exactly. The world must say no to these so-called offers and begin the difficult process of isolating China.  China is not a benign actor.  The world hoped that opening the country economically would open the country politically.  That experiment has been proven a failure. It’s time to end that experiment and try a different approach instead.

They intend world domination, and they have no problem with tens of thousands (or many more) dying in the process.

They must pay for this.
