COVID Intel Report

Intelligence documents show China hid the severity of the Coronavirus outbreak during the early stages of the pandemic.  On Saturday, the Daily Telegraph of Australia published a 6-page story based on a 15-page, leaked intel report.  The report is known as a 'Five Eyes' or '5 Eyes' report, as it was compiled by the joint cooperation of the intelligence services of five nations.  Those 5 are the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.  The substance of the report apparently blames the Chinese government for concealing the true nature of what would become known as the COVID-19 outbreak, especially during the months of December and most of January.  

 

The report finds sufficient facts to verify that the Chinese government knew that COVID-19 was a dangerous, highly contagious disease in early December of 2019.  Around this time, the government began ordering that samples and data that had begun to be gathered be destroyed.  However, the exact origin of the outbreak is still a mystery.  The intelligence communities involved are leaning towards an accidental release of a sample from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  However, some role in the outbreak may have been played by a 'wet market' in Wuhan, located a couple of miles from the virus lab.  That marketplace, which primarily sold fresh seafood, had been long since disinfected with bleach.  Whatever secrets held there are long gone.

But, there were several public reports about sloppy procedures at the Institute of Virology published.  All Chinese sources for these reports began being deleted or destroyed in early December, though some managed to slip through to Western sources.  On at least two occasions since 2018, the laboratory was cited for poor handling practices of its dangerous inventory.  The 5-Eyes intel report also noted that virus samples and lab notes began being destroyed under orders by the Chinese government.  Another Chinese company which had processed lab work on tests run on Wuhan residents infected with the Coronavirus also were ordered to destroy samples and data.  China consistently informed the rest of the world, often through the World Health Organization, that the Wuhan outbreak was related to contaminated food sold at the wet market and was not transferable by humans.  

This position about human transfer continued well into January of 2020.  Right up until the first cases of COVID-19 were detected in the United States and Italy by January 21.  Another interesting fact revealed by the 5-Eyes report is that the Chinese government delayed the release of monthly trade details.  These would have tipped off the world that China had begun buying huge amounts of medical PPE gear.  Also, that they had all but stopped shipping such material.  China is among the world's largest producers of masks, gowns, gloves and other medial protective supplies.  With them shutting off the export of such equipment while, at the same time, buying up all they could from other sources, such information would have signaled that something serious was going on.

So, while the intelligence documents leaked show that China hid the severity of the Coronavirus outbreak, there are still many unanswered questions.  With much evidence destroyed, we may never learn the real truth.  We do know that the Wuhan Institute of Virology was experimenting with Coronaviruses.  The chief scientist heading the research is the famous, 'Batwoman' of China, Dr. Shi Zhengli.  She was actually genetically modifying viruses from bats to make them even more deadly.  The object of this research was to develop a super-vaccine, something which could protect people from the harshest of Coronaviruses.  Dr. Zhengli claims that the DNA of her viruses do not match what is currently infecting people.  That COVID-19 is not from her inventory of nasty things.  But, we do not have access to her lab, and we are not likely to obtain it any time soon. 

Some analysts and experts say that China's objective was to use the outbreak to take advantage, both politically and economically.  China had been on a course to overtake the United States as the world's leading economic power.  But two things changed that trend.  First, the financial crisis of 2008 hit everyone very hard, including China.  They muddled through it by devaluing their currency.  Even with that bitter pill, China still could not keep pace with their plans.  Then, in 2016, Donald Trump was elected President of the United States.  Not only did Trump put America back on track economically, he also began cracking down on China and their unfair trade practices.  Manufacturing was forced to return to the USA as tariffs made China less attractive to the business world.  Capital follows success and less money began flowing to China from global investors.  Trump also made peace overtures to North Korea, long used by China to stir up trouble in Eastern Asia.  Less military attention there meant more to focus on countering moves by China.  Analysts suspect that China hopes the Coronavirus pandemic restore their plan to become the world's most powerful nation by 2030.
