Memos Leaked To AP Show China Knew COVID-19 Was ‘Likely Severe Pandemic’ While WHO Said It Wasn’t

The documents clearly state that the true scale of the virus outbreak was “not to be publicly disclosed.”

Internal Chinese government documents obtained by the Associated Press prove that Chinese Communist President Xi Jinping knew for sure that the outbreak of coronavirus in China was an “epidemic” and was highly contagious between humans in mid January, yet simultaneously China told the World Health Organization (WHO) that there was no “evidence of human-to-human transmission.”

The documents show that Xi knew that the “risk of transmission and spread” was “high” yet the Chinese government sat on the information for almost a whole week.

The AP notes that the memos “show that the head of China’s National Health Commission, Ma Xiaowei, laid out a grim assessment of the situation on Jan. 14 in a confidential teleconference with provincial health officials.”

The memo quotes Ma as warning that “The epidemic situation is still severe and complex, the most severe challenge since SARS in 2003, and is likely to develop into a major public health event.”

In one part of the memo, entitled “sober understanding of the situation,” it is acknowledged that “clustered cases suggest that human-to-human transmission is possible.

“With the coming of the Spring Festival, many people will be traveling, and the risk of transmission and spread is high,” the memo reads, adding “All localities must prepare for and respond to a pandemic.”

The information proves that the Chinese government lied to (or had the complicity of) the WHO, which sent out this infamous tweet about no human to human transmission on the same date, January 14,  referenced in the Chinese documents:

The documents clearly state that the true scale of the virus outbreak was “not to be publicly disclosed.”

The AP report notes that “In the six days after top Chinese officials secretly determined they likely were facing a pandemic from a new coronavirus, the city of Wuhan at the epicenter of the disease hosted a mass banquet for tens of thousands of people; millions began traveling through for Lunar New Year celebrations.”

“President Xi Jinping warned the public on the seventh day, Jan. 20. But by that time, more than 3,000 people had been infected during almost a week of public silence,” the report continues.

“This is tremendous,” said Zuo-Feng Zhang, an epidemiologist at the University of California, Los Angeles. “If they took action six days earlier, there would have been much fewer patients and medical facilities would have been sufficient. We might have avoided the collapse of Wuhan’s medical system.”

The information dovetails with previous studies that found the global pandemic could have been completely avoided, had China been up front with the true scale of the health crisis.

It has become clear that the first cases of the Chinese virus were reported in mid-late November and early December, with scientists even estimating that the first jump of the virus from animals to humans probably occurred in October in the city of Wuhan.

Instead of acting immediately, the Chinese government waited until January 23rd before issuing quarantine orders to the 11 million people living in Wuhan.

The communist state was also actively working to suppress and punish doctors and scientists who tried to get warnings out.

The US intelligence agencies have known about China’s subterfuge for some time now, with a classified intelligence report having been submitted to the White House in late March, concluding that China under reported the amount of coronavirus cases and deaths within its borders, and actively worked to conceal the severity of the outbreak.

Bloomberg News cited three officials familiar with the report, noting that “The officials asked not to be identified because the report is secret and declined to detail its contents. But the thrust, they said, is that China’s public reporting on cases and deaths is intentionally incomplete. Two of the officials said the report concludes that China’s numbers are fake.”

Indeed, it seems that China is STILL lying about the outbreak, with a new wave of the virus having hit the country.

The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday:

As the world struggles to contain the coronavirus outbreak without triggering a new Great Depression, China is withholding vital information that would save lives and significantly alleviate the economic catastrophe that now threatens to immiserate hundreds of millions of people around the world.

This isn’t the old coverup, when Communist Party bumbling and deceit allowed a local outbreak to turn into the worst global disaster in decades. The new coverup is even more brazen. China continues to falsify vital information about the epidemic on a massive scale.

The evidence comes from many sources. In a classified report to the White House, the U.S. intelligence community has concluded that China underreports both deaths and the total number of cases. The Economist magazine compared China’s reported statistics with those from other countries and found that numbers changed dramatically in response to political events, such as the firing and replacement of local officials.

While it has been clear since January that China is lying about the virus, the western media, as well as the World Health Organisation continued to parrot Chinese government and state media talking points. The media in the US said it was a ‘conspiracy theory’ that China was downplaying the outbreak, and that the WHO was parroting that notion.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has continually blasted China’s “intentional disinformation campaign,” and the British government’s scientific advisors have estimated that things could be 40 times worse in China than the communist state admits.

“There is a disgusting disinformation campaign going on and it is unacceptable,” an anonymous government source told The Daily Mail lin early April. “They [the Chinese government] know they have got this badly wrong and rather than owning it they are spreading lies.” the source added.

The former head of the US FDA declared earlier this week that China’s misinformation over the spread of the coronavirus needs to be investigated, while also noting that the World Heath Organisation validated Chinese lies in January, which ultimately doomed the globe into a pandemic.

The American Enterprise Institute (AEI) reported last week that a “conservative estimation” suggests there are 2.9 million coronavirus cases in China and up to 136,000 deaths. Yet according to official government figures, only 83,000 cases and 3,300 deaths have been reported.

While President Trump has halted funding for the WHO, a number of GOP senators have announced that they are investigating the organization’s involvement with China’s coverup of the true scale of the outbreak.

The reason for the attempted cover up by China appears to be because the virus was leaked from the bio-lab in Wuhan.

Numerous virologists and experts have stated that the possibility needs to be investigated, with intelligence and government officials going on record as saying that they are investigating the matter.

On Wednesday night, Fox News revealed that numerous sources confirmed that coronavirus was leaked from the Wuhan lab and that the World Health Organization was “complicit” in helping China to cover up the truth.

Fox reporter John Roberts asked the President about the findings Wednesday, with a tight lipped Trump responding that it is being looked into.

Head of Emergency Management Says Texans Should Wear Masks Inside Their Own Homes

Health authorities to patrol behavior on private property?

Published

The head of the Texas Division of Emergency Management gave an interview in which he said that people should wear masks inside their own homes in order to stop the spread of coronavirus.

Appearing on Fox News at Nine, Chief Nim Kidd insisted that people should wear masks indoors if they have potentially exposed themselves to the virus by being outside.

“We still need people to wear the mask out in public, we still need people to keep social distance and isolation,” Kidd said. “Ryan, the one thing I want to try to get across today is we need to do that when we’re in our homes also.”

“While we believe the community is doing a great job of following the rules when they are outside the home, we really need to be thinking about doing the same thing when we’re inside the home,” he added.

When host Ryan Wolf asked Kidd if “people should be wearing masks inside their own homes now,” he responded that this should happen if someone has been “out in public,” for example for a 4th of July celebration and hasn’t “decontaminated” when they arrive home

“Although Kidd shied away from saying residents must wear masks in their home, he said it needs to be heavily considered,” reports News4SanAntonio. “In the interview, he cited how some people may be going out for holidays or parties, but not considering what they may be bringing in their homes.”

As we previously highlighted, this is not the first example of health authorities trying to police people’s behavior inside their homes over coronavirus.

Some Californians are calling 911 if they hear their neighbors loudly coughing or sneezing, with paramedics being dispatched to homes in some cases.

“Coachella Valley police departments say they’ve started fielding 911 reports from concerned callers convinced a neighbor’s overly loud sneeze or hacking cough is proof the person has the virus,” reported the Desert Sun.

If health authorities are now moving towards patrolling behavior inside the confines of private property due to COVID-19 hysteria, how far away are mandatory vaccinations?

As we have previously highlighted, the media is continuing to peddle alarmist hysteria by hyping rising coronavirus cases, despite the fact that the death rate has been consistently falling for over two months across the country.

US Officially Withdraws From World Health Organisation

Biden promises to re-join if elected.

The US has officially notified the United Nations that America is leaving the World Health Organisation, and the process will be completed one year from now on July 6 2021.

However, Joe Biden says that if elected President, he will reverse the decision.

The Trump administration started the formal process of leaving the WHO this week, following the President’s fierce criticism of the health body as being under the “total control” of China.

A WHO official told reporters Monday that “We have received reports that the US has submitted formal notification to the UN secretary general that it is withdrawing from WHO effective 6 July 2021.”

The US gives more than $450m per year to the WHO and currently owes the body $200m, according to reports.

Democrats used the announcement to bash Trump’s coronavirus response.

Senator Jeff Merkley, the top Democrat on the Senate foreign relations subcommittee said the development is “a huge win for China and a huge blow to the American people”.

Senator Robert Menendez, the ranking member on the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee, charged that the move “leaves Americans sick & America alone.”

Joe Biden wrote “Americans are safer when America is engaged in strengthening global health. On my first day as president, I will rejoin the WHO and restore our leadership on the world stage.”

Meanwhile, the WHO itself stealthily updated a timeline on its website this week, admitting that China never reported its discovery of the coronavirus to the organisation, and that WHO officials learned about it independently when they were finally allowed to visit the country weeks after first requesting to do so.

Breitbart News reported that “The update came after Republicans on the House Foreign Affairs Committee (HFAC) released an interim report on its investigation of China’s response after it discovered cases of the coronavirus in Wuhan.”

HFAC Lead Republican and China Task Force chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX) said in a statement:

I’m glad to see the WHO and the Chinese Communist Party have both read my interim report on the origins of the pandemic and are finally admitting to the world the truth – the CCP never reported the virus outbreak to the WHO in violation of WHO regulations. The question now is whether the CCP will continue their false propaganda campaign that continues to claim they warned the world, or whether they will come clean and begin to work with the world health community to get to the bottom of this deadly pandemic.

Appearing on Fox News, McCaul charged that the WHO cares less about global health than it does about ‘appeasing China’:

McCaul says he has repeatedly tried to get information from the WHO about China’s response to coronavirus, but has been met with a brick wall constantly:

In May, scores of countries signed a resolution collectively calling for an independent investigation into the origin of the coronavirus and the reaction of the World Health Organisation.

The WHO has come under intense scrutiny for repeating Chinese claims in January that the virus was not contagious between humans. The body then complained that it was not invited to take part in China’s investigations of the outbreak.

As we highlighted repeatedly, the WHO blocked doctors from urging countries to impose border controls to stop the spread of coronavirus and repeatedly told countries not to close borders, despite this being proven to be an effective way of controlling the spread of the virus.

While not addressing the WHO specifically, President Trump posted several tweets Tuesday slamming the media and Democrats for not acknowledging improvements in the coronavirus situation:

Royal Society President Says Mask Refusniks Should be Publicly Shamed Like Drunk Drivers

Demands it be made mandatory inside all public buildings.

The President of the Royal Society says that people who refuse to wear masks should be publicly shamed like drunk drivers, highlighting again how the entire issue has become another part of the ‘cancel culture war’.

“The message has not been clear enough, so perhaps people do not really understand the benefits or are not convinced of them,” writes Venki Ramakrishnan. “Whatever the reasons, we need to overcome our reservations and wear face coverings whenever we are around others in public.”

“It used to be quite normal to have quite a few drinks and drive home, and it also used to be normal to drive without seatbelts. Today, both of those would be considered antisocial, and not wearing face coverings in public should be regarded in the same way.”

Ramakrishnan’s demand follows two Royal Society reports that claim wearing masks significantly reduces the risk of COVID-19 transmission.

However, as Toby Young notes, the evidence cited by the reports is flimsy at best.

“I’ve had a look at the Royal Society paper that supposedly confirms the effectiveness of masks. It’s unimpressive. Note the threadbare evidence on which it bases its sweeping conclusion,” writes Young before quoting the report itself.

“We have found only two randomised control trials in the primary literature on the use of face masks to reduce onward transmission; one was underpowered, and the other showed significant reduction when adjusted for actual mask usage in a posthoc analysis.”

This all emphasizes once again how the issue of mask wearing has been amplified way beyond the entire coronavirus debate and has become a symbol of mass obedience.

Those who refuse to be bullied into wearing the mask are now publicly shamed and dehumanized by the political class and elitist wannabes.

Whenever transgressions make it to social media in the form of videos of people inside supermarkets refusing to wear masks, they are also savaged and “cancelled” by ‘woke’ hate mobs.

The mask is also a symbol of the lockdown, which itself has been politicized by the left with the aid of mass hysteria and fearmongering to force right of center governments in both the U.S. and the UK to commit near economic suicide in order to satiate the demands of the mask wearing mob.

Wearing the mask stopped being a medical issue many months ago and is now yet another political football in the culture war.
