At an emergency meeting in Beijing the, Chinese leader Xi Jinping spoke about the need to contain the corona virus and set up a system to prevent similar epidemics in the future.

A national system to control bio-security, risks must be put in place “to protect the people’s health,” Xi said, because lab safety is a “national security” issue.

Xi didn’t actually say that the corona virus which has been devastating for for China and other countries had escaped from one of the country’s bio-research labs. But the very next day, the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology released a new directive titled: “Instructions on strengthening bio-security management in microbiology labs that handle advanced viruses like the novel corona virus.”

from this it seems like China has a problem keeping dangerous pathogens in test tubes where they belong, how many “microbiology labs” are there in China that handle “advanced viruses like the novel corona-virus”?

we have yet to be sure but it looks as though there is only one. And this one is located in the Chinese city of Wuhan that as we know is the epicenter of the epidemic. So it looks as though China’s only Level 4 microbiology lab that is equipped to handle deadly viruses, called the National Bio-safety Laboratory, is part of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

the People’s Liberation Army’s top expert in biological warfare, a Maj. Gen. Chen Wei, was dispatched to Wuhan at the end of January to help with the effort to contain the outbreak. According to the PLA Daily, Chen has been researching corona viruses since the SARS outbreak of 2003, as well as Ebola and anthrax.

we dont have a confirmation but we have a theory and so it may have escaped from that very lab, but there are naturally differing opinions ,China has a history of similar incidents.it seems that even the deadly SARS virus has escaped twice from the Beijing lab where it was (and probably is) being used in experiments. And then there is a worrying and little known fact: Some Chinese researchers have been in the habit of selling their laboratory animals to street vendors after they have finished experimenting on them. if they are still doing that or not is unclear., but law should require and does require cremation of animal test subjects.

One Beijing researcher that we know of is in jail, made a million dollars selling his monkeys and rats on the live animal market,

Also fueling suspicions about SARS-CoV-2’s origins was a series of increasingly lame excuses offered by the Chinese authorities as people began to sicken and die, although that maybe more a media failure thing than the authorities, so many times we see media screwing and fudging facts no matter how serious it is, hence why there's so much distrust now. .

The blame game seemed to firstly point to the seafood market not far from the Institute of Virology, even though the first documented cases of Covid-19 (the illness caused by SARS-CoV-2) involved people who had never set foot there. Then they pointed to snakes, bats and even an anteater otherwise known as a pangolin as the source of the virus. we don't see how this follows because It turns out that snakes don’t carry corona viruses and that bats aren’t sold at a seafood market. Neither,also pangolins are an endangered species valued for their scales as much as for their meat. unless perhaps the market was indeed selling panglin meat which would be breaking the law .

One theory was that the virus may have been carried out of the lab by an infected worker or crossed over into humans when they unknowingly dined on a lab animal. Whatever the factual reality is, Beijing authorities are now scrambling to correct serious problems with the way their labs handle deadly pathogens.


UPDATE 9th april 2020:

We did say there was more to come, since then things have happened so fast we have far more than we expected.Here's what we have so far, and please note we are not making claims set in stone. But it should be easy enough for most weather they are correct or incorrect to make their own conclusions, and as always if we can be proven wrong or called out on errouness information we want to be told and proven to be mistaken for the sake of intellectual; honesty and research.

Selectionshot_2020-04-08_18:22:42.png, Apr 2020 Andrew E. Lelling, United States Attorney for the District of Massachusetts and Joseph R. Bonavolonta, Special Agent in Charge Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boston Field Division listen as Michael Denning, Director of Field Operations U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Boston Field Office announces federal charges against individuals in connection with aiding China, at Moakley federal courthouse in Boston, Massachusetts,

For many years now There has been and still is an aggressive effort by U.S. authorities to block what they say are attempts by china to steal American scientific and technological advances. The U.S. attorney for the district of Massachusetts had the following to say at a news conference

“This is a very carefully directed effort by the Chinese government to fill what it views as its own strategic gaps,” Andrew Lelling, U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts.

Prosecutors charged Charles Lieber, chair of Harvard University’s Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, with lying about participating in China’s Thousand Talents Plan, this plan has always been one to attract research specialists working overseas.

Two Chinese researchers were charged for being agents of a foreign government. They were Yanqing Ye, who is a Boston University robotics researcher who prosecutors said lied about being in the Chinese army, and Zaosong Zheng, who is a cancer researcher at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and was was arrested in December of 2019 for allegedly trying to smuggle research samples out of the country.

The prosecutors said Ye is a lieutenant in the Chinese People’s Liberation Army, which she did not disclose when she obtained a visa to enter the United States. and is accused of passing information and research conducted at Boston University to China’s government.

we also know that Zheng was arrested at Boston’s Logan International Airport and that this arrest is over a aledged smuggling out of the U.S with 21 vials containing sensitive biological samples. the prosecutors claim he planned to return to China to continue his research there

Lieber, Ye and Zheng are the latest in a series of academics the United States has charged over their connections with China. In August 2019 federal prosecutors charged a University of Kansas researcher for failing to disclose ties to a Chinese university.

officials were regarding the matter as ‘EXTREMELY SERIOUS’

Bonavolonta, who is in charge of the FBI’s Boston field office, said Lieber had received millions of dollars from the Chinese government and lied about it to federal investigators and officials at Harvard.

Lieber is also accused of making materially false, fictitious and fraudulent statements to the U.S. Department of Defense about his role in the Thousand Talents Plan, and to the National Institutes of Health about that role and also his affiliation with Wuhan University of Technology in China.

a the time Lieber was charged with one count of making false statements to a U.S. government agency. Bonavolonta said investigators were trying to determine if anything other than money motivated his actions., lets not forget this was late 2019.

Harvard and Boston University said they were cooperating with investigators.

“The charges brought by the U.S. government against Professor Lieber are extremely serious,” Harvard said in a statement. John Demers, assistant attorney general for national security, said U.S. universities need to increase their vigilance when it comes to connections to China.

“The Chinese government has made it a priority to develop its technological knowledge at American expense,” Demers said.

He urged American universities to increase the transparency of their programs funding sources and the commitments of any professors involved, and most importantly to maintain physical and internet security over sensitive research.

The Justice Department said that since the beginning of 2018, it has brought charges in at least three dozen federal cases involving alleged economic, scientific and technological espionage connected to China.

The cases level charges against both American and Chinese nationals.

we are told that China has been implicated in more than 80% of all economic espionage charges the Justice Department has brought and is connected to 60% of all trade secret theft cases. the department has brought charges in since 2012,

there is more that we would add, however we prefer at this time to push on with other articles and data, but i will leave you with one last thought this is not over by any means at all and we are very certain the FBI will be prosecuting people directly involved with either a lack of professionalism or , well lets just say or worse thank you for reading
