China’s Wuhan Biolab Links to Military Biowarfare Research Exposed

Even as the U.S. and western countries demand full transparency from China regarding the origins of COVID-19, new information is surfacing highlighting direct military links between China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) and the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA). Despite numerous denials by Chinese officials, it has become increasingly clear that scientists studying bat diseases at China’s maximum-security laboratory in Wuhan were also working together with senior military officials in a massive project to investigate animal viruses.

According to the Daily Mail (DM), recently obtained documents have revealed that the nationwide bioresearch effort was “launched nine years ago to discover new viruses and detect the ‘dark matter’ of biology involved in spreading diseases.”

Launched in 2012, the massive effort was reportedly funded by the National Natural Science Foundation of China and led by Xu Jianguo, who boasted at a conference in 2019 that ‘a giant network of infectious disease prevention and control is taking shape.’

The effort in Wuhan apparently was led by five team leaders, including Shi Zhengli, the WIV virologist nicknamed ‘Bat Woman’ for her trips to find bat samples in caves, and Cao Wuchun, a senior army officer and government adviser on bioterrorism.

Last month, notes DM, Profesor Shi denied the links, stating: ‘I don’t know of any military work at the WIV. That info is incorrect.’

However, the paper continues:

Colonel Cao is listed on project reports as a researcher from the Academy of Military Medical Sciences of the People’s Liberation Army, works closely with other military scientists and is director of the Military Biosafety Expert Committee.

Cao, an epidemiologist who studied at Cambridge University, even sits on the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s advisory board. He was second-in-command of the military team sent into the city under Major General Chen Wei, the country’s top biodefence expert, to respond to the new virus and develop a vaccine.

The US State Department also raised concerns over risky ‘gain of function’ experiments to manipulate coronaviruses at the Wuhan lab and suggested researchers fell sick with Covid-like symptoms weeks before the outbreak emerged more widely in the Chinese city.

The military links to Wuhan’s biolab are fairly clear. The first question is – what is this bioresearch for? David Asher, an expert on biological, chemical and nuclear proliferation, who led the State Department inquiries into the origins of Covid-19, said: ‘The Chinese have made it clear they see biotechnology as a big part of the future of hybrid warfare. The big question is whether their work in these fields is offensive or defensive.’

The second question is, regardless of the intent of the research, did COVID-19 accidentally escape from the biolab at WIV?

Filippa Lentzos, a biosecurity expert at one of my alma maters, King’s College London, said the latest disclosures fitted ‘the pattern of inconsistencies’ coming from Beijing, reported DM.

‘They are still not being transparent with us,’ she said. ‘We have no hard data on the pandemic origins, whether it was a natural spill-over from animals or some kind of accidental research-related leak, yet we’re unable to get straight answers and that simply does not inspire confidence.’

After over 3.5 million COVID-19 pandemic deaths, the world still needs answers from China.

It is my opinion that Covid-19 is likely a man made or altered virus as it has characteristics unlike any natural virus that we have encountered. The fact that a substantial percentage of those infected can have no or very mild symptoms is quite unusual. Granted, the severity of symptoms from influenza can vary but a “mild case” of flu is still definitely worse than a common cold.

Do I think that it was intentionally released, not at all. Had those within the Chinese government wanted to release the virus on the world, they would likely have done so by smuggling it out and releasing it elsewhere, such as in an American city with a virus lab of their own so that we would get the blame.

There are likely those within the Chinese government who would wish to harm the “free world” but China had become a very major supplier of manufactured goods to said free world and were enjoying an enormous income from doing so. Remember that the Chinese have been merchants for thousands of years and although their present government is one of considerable power and authority, enough of those at the top know that when you are making huge amounts of money as a supplier, you don’t gain by damaging your customer’s ability to keep paying.

I believe that the Wuhan virus was released for economic gain. If China wanted to lead the world economically it would have been advantageous to let the virus escape to the rest of the world. You can see how China has made tremendous gains all over the world as of last year.

The USA Nato Nations and Russia have all agreed to stop making Biological Weapons many decades ago! Then all of a sudden here comes China! The absolute laughing stock of the Biological weapons game .02% Mortality rate what a joke, it just goes to prove that it was Made In China! Anthrax and Ebola 85% to 95% mortality rate but here we are locked down over a .02% when the normal flu has 3% to 6% mortality rate what an absolute joke!!!!!!!!!!

I can tell you that Joe Biden and his son got billion Dollar payoff when they went to China. But, what was that big payoff really for? Was it really about the release of this Coronavirus because it was at the beginning of the Presidential Election Year 2020?

Maybe we should ask Obama because he is the one that gave the money (our tax dollars)
to fund the Lab and as of late Dr. Fauci he kept donating money to Whuhan Lab for research being done against GOV. orders to stop funding China’s Bio research. All as it is and will always be in China a Military run communist country .

Where is the real evidence that Covid actualy affects Chinese people? The world was feted with video from China showing random persons collapsing in the streets bleeding form all orifices this got the world wide pandemic panic to grow…but no nation has experienced similar patterns of persons collapsing in the streets. Everything is looking like propaganda and psycho-babble of Chinese origin, for Chinese gain to contorl the world economy as nations economically self destruct for an elusive virus of no less danger than the seasonal flu – It is increasingly appearing to be a bio weapon targeting non Chinese genetics.

Quit playing games and lying US Government! you know for a fact the Wuhan Virus was just a ploy cooked up by China to get payment back from the USA on all of the money all of the Politicians have stolen from them! The Politicians took the money gladly and are leaving the US population to pay back the bill! China Uncensored showed Xi Jinping giving a press Conference stating that he ordered the virus to be Created! He also stated that the PLA ordered it to be released at the WUHAN LAB! He then stated that it was released in an effort to start WW3 and said Strike First, Strike Hard! Which was all just Smoke and Mirrors because the #CoronaSCAM has only a .02% Mortality rate meaning that you have a much higher chance of being struck by lightening than to die of Coronavirus!!!!! The lockdowns were the result of the Crooked Demo RATS and the Left Leaning Republicans being forced to do Chinas bidding they used #CoronaSCAM2020 to steal the 2020 Presidential Election to force America to be crushed by the low life communists who took money from China they were working feverishly to hand over our manufacturing jobs to China now they are working on American soil then the American People! It’s as plain and simple as the nose on your face but the Demo RATS cannot stand the TRUTH!

China KNOWS it doesn’t stand a chance in a Ground war on American soil because if they got lucky and got past the US Military, the Veterans and armed civilians would wipe out what few of them were left! They want American land, so the only way to get it is a hostile take over from within! Using Key Political Assets!

Regarding the “offensive/defensive” question; it seems that if the virus was being investigated for defensive purposes the Chinese would have been much further along than they were in developing an antidote. Just sayin.

But still no investigation into the money sent to the same lab by DR. Fauci through the Democratic party. The meeting held there by Fauci and Democratic leaders just months before the Pandemic. Question, Questions, Questions ?

If you post a link to this on Facebook be prepared to be censored. I gave up on Facebook last year when I was censored for my comments regarding Covid19. I might add that am a practicing physician who sees patients with Covid19 and who keeps up with actual science and research. However if a physician disagrees with the opinions of Lord Fauci and posts dissenting stances, a high school graduate will censor you. I had enough of the propaganda from the likes of Facebook and MSM.

Right from the start of this virus I have said that it was a biological plant it was no accident
it seems very strange that all of this started about the same time around the world,
and makes it even stranger that Gates.Faucci.and Soros are all friends.all trying to control us all because they beleive that World POPULATION needs to be controlled by them.
I have no proof of this,but just a thought

My Comments:
Well, Dave, I’d say either way is still bad for the United States. Would you agree? Why not come clean and tell the Barack Hussein Obama and Anthony Fauci sold them “gain of function” technology and the virus out of Ft. Detrick MD?

The communist Chinese know what they were doing when they released the Wuhan Virus on the world, it’s called mass murder that’s what they planned all along, this Wuhan Virus was no accident! The commies want to take over the world, and Biden is letting them, he is a traitor!

Biden and son are as corrupt as China, the WHO organization is bought and paid for by commie China they also knew about the Wuhan Virus and that’s where it originated, the only reason we found out was because it started to spread faster than they expected and to many people were dying at a high rate, the WHO had to come forward but not completely they left out a lot of information and didn’t really care about the lost lives! Then their was the commie narrative it was President Trumps fault the commies knew if they blamed Trump the spot lite would be on him not their lies to the World! But in the end the commies lost because President Trump did something No other Leader in the World even the commies came up with a Virus Vaccine, it was called Operation Warp Speed, Trump did that for the world not the WHO, China or any other Nation!
