China Seems Upset Over Lab Leak Theory

Because China would never bio-engineer or mess around with a virus, right? Because they’ve never done that before, right?

China official insists COVID lab-leak theory ‘absurd’ in Blinken call

A top Chinese diplomat told Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Friday that the theory that COVID-19 leaked from a laboratory in the city of Wuhan was an “absurd story,” the country’s state media reported.

Yang Jiechi, the head of Beijing’s Central Foreign Affairs Commission, also told Blinken that the US should approach issues surrounding the island nation of Taiwan “carefully and appropriately,” according to broadcaster CCTV.

Blinken, meanwhile, “stressed the importance of cooperation and transparency regarding the origin of the virus, including the need for WHO Phase 2 expert-led studies in China,” a State Department press release said. (snip)

In addition, the Journal reported earlier this week that a top US government laboratory had reported in May 2020 that the “lab leak” theory was plausible and should be studied further.

“We urge the United States to respect facts and science, refrain from politicizing the issue … and focus on international cooperation in the fight against the pandemic,” Yang said.

The question now becomes “Does the China Joe admin continue to investigate as much as they can to determine where COVID19 originated” or do they just let it go?

State official believes private vaccine passports could soon be a thing in California

The state of California may not be implementing a vaccine passport, but there may still be and app or other credential for people to prove they are fully vaccinated against coronavirus coming soon.

Secretary of the California Health and Human Services Agency Dr. Mark Ghaly spoke to Public Policy Institute of California president and CEO Mark Baldassare on Friday about how vaccine passports may still come about and what they might look like.

“We’re also very cognizant that we’ll see apps on our phone, things created so that those who want to have their vaccine verification at their finger tips, they can have it,” Ghaly said.

In other words, it is a passport backed by the state of California but they’ll call it private run.

    Why do you suppose the Chinese released an inferior variant of the virus? A more recent variant, b.1.617.2, is 50% more transmissible, and has been identified in 46 US states now, and doubtless in all. Three counties in northern Missouri (rural and deeply Republican, and most certainly low levels of vaccination) have the highest rate of Covid infection in the United States.

    b.1.617.2, also called the Delta variant, was first detected in India. Do you think Chinese agents infiltrated India and spread this variant? Or do you believe India is also trying to destroy the West?

      There are now dozens of variants. Something to be fully expected once a pathogen spreads freely with little hindrance. The reason Ebola is not a good pathogen to spread is because of its lethality. Once it hits a neighborhood it takes people off their feet and is unable to spread easily and in most cases it tends to kill itself off by running out of hosts.

      The Delta variant is just the virus mutating to become more transmissible. Everyone will tell you the covid-19 is becoming less lethal as it becomes more transmissible. The virus itself tending to make life easier for itself.

      The original SARS had a mortality rate of almost 10 percent. MERS the next lethal variant had a mortality rate of 30 percent. Both were easily able to be contained because they did not have the chance to mutate and their Rnaught number was low.

      You should really stop being an apologist for the Chinese. It is documented and well known that the Chinese knew the virus was airborne, locked down WUHAN BUT…….

      And this is a big BUT….

      Allowed people to travel to all parts of the world including Iran and Italy and Spain three of the hardest hit countries in the world early on.

      WHY? Because belt and road initiatives were being built in those three countries at the time and China always insists on using a large portion of their own people to build the infrastructure in foreign countries.

      • est1950 says:

        and I should include this about WUHAN. The province is home to not one but two labs that specialize in infectious diseases. Secondly it is the gateway of China’s belt and road iniative.

        In other words China has chosen Wuhan to be the orginating province for its massive Euro/Asia Railway which takes workers directly from China to Spain, Italy and Iran.

        Remember I posted early on that samples of waste water in Madrid Spain were found to have the original version of Covid-19 in it. This was in March of 2019.

        Remember this interesting tidbit of information. What we do is comb the world for tidbits of information and then tabulate, collate and use that information to extrapolate what might become of what we know.

        Flu season got off to a fast start and shows no sign of slowing. On Friday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that flu activity continues to rise across the country, with an estimated 2.6 million flu illnesses reported so far this year.

        Of those patients, 23,000 required hospitalization and 1,300 people died from the flu, including 10 children, the CDC said.

        There was a particulary nasty flu season at the end of 2019 just before Covid-19 started making the rounds. Suddenly everyone who was sick was diagnosed with Covid-19 rather than the flu and everyone says the flu disappeared. It did not. It’s just the CDC and everyone else no longer cared about the flu this year because?????

        The B-variant of flu attack mainly young and healthy children rather than those most at risk.
