Is Wuhan-400 a delusion?

Is Wuhan-400 a delusion?

“…When did patient zero begin in US? How many people are infected? What are the names of the hospitals? It might be US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan. Be transparent! Make public your data! US owe us an explanation!”
-- Zhao Lijian, China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs


Origin of the novel coronavirus

If you do not believe there is any conspiracy behind the latest coronavirus pandemic, read no further. Maybe you also belong to one of those who believes the official narrative of the despicable September 11 attacks was linked to the Islamic terrorist group led by Osama bin Laden. The official story of al-Qaeda planned the hijacking of four airplanes to rain terror in the United States is a conspiracy (i.e. a secret plan by a group to do something harmful).

Credible alternate conspiracy theories exist but are not mainstream but if you wish to awaken yourself, considers seeing the Loose Change. The only reason to mention 9/11 here is to point out the fact that it may be wise to question official narratives. Anyway, this article explores the origin of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, which WHO has finally declared as a pandemic after 118,000 cases in 114 countries, and 4,291 people have died.

It is a conspiracy according to China

As the Chinese are still reeling behind the economic crisis inflicted by the coronavirus, Zhao Lijian, China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, pushed forward the idea that it was the US Army that brought the virus to Wuhan.

He accused the US Armed Forces for spreading COVID-19 when some of their military members went to Wuhan for the Military World Games in mid-October 2019. Since the possibility of the virus circulating in China in mid-October cannot be discounted, Zhao’s claim seems possible. He posted this aggressive speculation on Twitter, which is shown at the top of this article.

He demanded an answer to the question of whether the coronavirus has been circulating and infected millions of people and caused deaths, but were disguised as flu. China just happened to be the world hero when they identified the COVID-19 after something had gone seriously bad in Wuhan.

If this claim is proven untrue, then it should be remembered in history as one of the cleverest tricks to shift blame to an adversary while crediting your own affiliation. Or perhaps this is just all part of a misdirection strategy?

Meanwhile, the Chinese government continues to block an untold number of true horrors such as the diary of a Chinese woman who documented watching her own parents die from the coronavirus infections. The story in the diary will make you weep and provides a glimpse into how lives are like living under a lockdown.

A stealth game

However, there is probably some validity by Zhao Lijian in claiming the coronavirus could have been spreading stealthily such as in Italy, where one report suggests the virus was circulating in mid-January, which was completely out of sight of the officials.

In fact, even the Chinese official story leaves room for doubt because only 27 of the 41 coronavirus cases in the first cohort, which was published in Lancet had link to the now infamous seafood market. The Americans should consider asking the Chinese officials, “Who is your real patient zero? Is Wuhan seafood market really the ground zero?

Why did you need to build new hospitals so quickly when your official statistics showed so few cases that should be well within the capability of Wuhan’s facilities? Were the crematoriums in Wuhan running 24/7 during the outbreak and how many people have died?

Why is the only biosafety level 4 laboratory in China happens to be in Wuhan and the epicentre of the outbreak is in Wuhan? What is the connection between Dr. Charles Lieber’s secret laboratory and the Wuhan University of Technology?”

Which bat species carries a coronavirus strain closest to COVID-19?

As early as 6 Feb 2020, Botao Xiao and Lei Xiao, both researchers in Wuhan, wrote a short unpublished preprint to ResearchGate on the possible origins of the coronavirus. They cited a paper led by Zheng-Li Shi in Nature Medicine on the probable bat origin. However, they wrote, “According to municipal reports and the testimonies of 31 residents and 28 visitors, the bat was never a food source in the city (Wuhan), and no bat was traded in the market.”

Let’s discuss this bat origin in detail. It should be treated as a hypothesis now rather than claiming bat is the reservoir for the current pandemic. This means there is evidence to suggest for bat origin but counter evidence, if found, will reject this claim.

The evidence to suggest for bats as the reservoir is based on comparing the genome of COVID-19 (then named 2019-nCoV) against known coronaviruses. The genome can be thought of as a collection of all ‘genetic material’ and the more similar the genomes are, the more related the individuals who carry them.

Zheng-Li Shi and colleagues found bat (Rhinolophus affinis) coronavirus strain named RaTG13 that originated from the Yunnan province had an overall 96.2% genome identity to COVID-19.

Bats as the source of bad coronaviruses

So far, the bat species that carries a coronavirus strain closest to the COVID-19 is still 3.8% different at the genome level. This translates to a whooping more than a thousand of nucleotide differences given that COVID-19 genome is about 30 kb. It is known that even a single nucleotide difference can sometimes have profound biological impact. Even if the reservoir for COVID-19 is in bats, they are not likely to jump directly into humans and an intermediate host is required. This is where pangolin enters into the picture.

A video by Vox explains this scenario very well (see below). Basically, the story is wildlife trading to serve the needs of some rich Chinese consumers is what gave rise to virus transmission from one host to another. In this case it is a jump from bats to pangolin, and then from pangolin to humans. Wait a minute! We have heard of something like this before.

Yes, the mysterious reservoir of coronaviruses in bats that jumped into civet cats and then to humans to give rise to SARS in 2003. This is what WHO said on the origin of SARS-CoV, “SARS-CoV is thought to be an animal virus from an as-yet-uncertain animal reservoir, perhaps bats, that spread to other animals (civet cats) and first infected humans …”.

The recent MERS-CoV that was first identified in Saudi Arabia in 2012 also has an uncertain origin. According to WHO, “… it is believed that it may have originated in bats and was transmitted to camels sometime in the distant past.”

An accidental leak of dangerous chimeric coronavirus

Bats normally live in caves and trees. How did they magically appear in the Wuhan market? Right, the bats transferred the virus to pangolin, which presumably was traded in Wuhan. Now, here is the surprise or a strange coincidence. Just a short distance away from the Wuhan seafood market is the Wuhan Center for Disease Control and Prevention (WHCDC) where viruses from bats including Rhinolophus affinis have been studied.

According to Botao Xiao and Lei Xiao, an expert who collected the samples had once described, “… he was once by attacked by bats and the blood of a bat shot on his skin. He knew the extreme danger of the infection so he quarantined himself for 14 days.”

The WHCDC is adjacent to the Union Hospital. It is plausible that trash contaminated with bats carrying the coronavirus infected hospital patients, which then led to the outbreak. The virus could also have originated from the Wuhan Institute of Virology just 12 km away, where researchers are known to have generated chimeric virus using the SARS-CoV reverse genetic system, knowing very well of its potential danger to humans.

Epstein-Harvard connection

Botao Xiao is a Harvard educated scientist in the previous preprint that considers accidental laboratory release. There is another startling Harvard connection, which involves the now dead Jeffrey Epstein, who committed suicide according to an official report but he could have been murdered. The notorious financier and sex offender, Epstein, had funded George Church and Martin Nowak, who are both high profile professors at Harvard.

In one of the meetings between the financier and the two scientists, Epstein expressed his interest to “… the science of life’s origins and mathematically modeling the evolution of viruses, cancer cells, and life itself.” Epstein contributed $6.5 million to the Program for Evolutionary Dynamics to fund Nowak to study virus dynamics among many other things.

George Church is a well known geneticist and has been involved in synthetic biology, a field concerned with the creation of new life forms by engineering them using technologies such as DNA synthesis.

The genetic material to produce coronavirus can now be synthesized, which means many different versions of viruses can be tested for their effects. In one of his latest research, he used a machine guided design to systematically optimise adeno-associated virus capsids, which potentially enhances transformative gene therapies.

Affidavit against Lieber

Another colleague of Church and Nowak, Charles Lieber who studies nanotechnology has a more direct link with Wuhan. According to a report in Science, he has been arrested on 28 Jan for making false statements on a collaboration with China.

In the affidavit by FBI special agent, Robert Plumb, against Lieber, there was something fishy going on between the professor and Wuhan Institute of Technology (WUT). He was supposed to carry out advanced nanowire-based lithium ion batteries for high performing vehicles with WUT and was awarded $1.5 million to do the work.

However, Lieber has no track record in battery and in recent years his research was more focused on using nanotechnology to probe the brain toward the future of brain-machine interfaces. Below is a selected list of Lieber’s publications (title and year) with connection to the brain or central nervous system.

Lieber’s work was featured in a Science Daily’s article on the future of mind control.

Strangely, Charles Lieber Google’s Scholar page has also malfunctioned and pointed to someone else’s publications.

The brain connection

What was the “brain hacker” doing in Wuhan where he established a secret laboratory? Could this be a cover up for something far more serious? Does this have something to do with Wuhan-400 bioweapon from the novel, ‘The Eyes of Darkness’? Read below an excerpt of the novel. Note the "virus", “battery” and “brain” in one sentence.

Or maybe the work of a psychic or writer under psychedelic influence to reveal a sinister brain-machine interfaces experimentation alongside a pandemic to bring it to everyone’s attention. Did you know, Danny, a young boy and main character of the ‘Eyes of Darkness’, has psychic power? Now you know.

“The Chinese tested it on God knows how many political prisoners. They were never able to find an antibody or an antibiotic that was effective against it. The virus migrates to the brain stem, and there it begins secreting a toxin that literally eats away brain tissue like battery acid dissolving cheesecloth.”
