2/2 CDC was caught on the spot. 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! pic.twitter.com/vYNZRFPWo3

I’ve been saying they should do this since the beginning. While the Chinese government is typically slow to act on my professional advice, they do eventually get around to it.
A spokesman for China’s Foreign Ministry suggested on Thursday the U.S. military might have brought the coronavirus to the Chinese city of Wuhan, which has been hardest hit by the outbreak, doubling down on a war of words with Washington.
China has taken great offence at comments by U.S. officials accusing it of being slow to react to the virus, first detected in Wuhan late last year, and of not being transparent enough.
On Wednesday, U.S. National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien said the speed of China’s reaction to the emergence of the coronavirus had probably cost the world two months when it could have been preparing for the outbreak.
In a strongly worded tweet, written in English on his verified Twitter account, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said it was the United States that lacked transparency.
“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 wrote.
Zhao, an avid and often combative Twitter user, did not offer any evidence for his suggestion that the U.S. military might be to blame for the outbreak in China.
Clearly, it is going to be difficult to offer evidence for something that is by its nature secretive. Surely, the US government would have done its work in covering its tracks when releasing a bioweapon against the Chinese.
When harassed about “evidence,” however, Zhao posted an article from the alternative news website globalresearch.ca

The article is by Larry Romanoff, who has been doing fantastic work highlighting the fact that the Coronavirus appears to be a bioweapon designed in a US laboratory and released against the Chinese at the beginning of Chinese New Year right in the middle of a major transport hub.
Another article that Romanoff published in January, entitled “China’s New Coronavirus: An Examination of the Facts,” is a more detailed analysis of the evidence.
Of course, we do not know for an absolute fact that the Coronavirus is a bioweapon released against the Chinese by the US Government, but it appears to be the single most likely explanation for this virus. Certainly, bat soup is not a good explanation and it is actually bizarre that this is the one the media is continuing to run with.
As Zhao points out, we still do not have a patient zero, and that would also fit into the theory of a bioweapon, given that the US military would have infected more than one person at once in order to ensure the virus spread.
Another article that Zhao could consider linking is entitled “Bats, Gene Editing and Bioweapons: Recent Darpa Experiments Raise Concerns Amid Coronavirus Outbreak,” written by Whitey Webb and published in January on Unz.com. This 5,000-word study links a whole lot of different data points showing that the US military’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) was doing extensive research into gene-editing Coronaviruses to use as bioweapons.
A point that I have made repeatedly, which I believe is circumstantial evidence, is that there is no argument about the fact that the US State Department was behind the violent uprising in Hong Kong, which sought to destabilize the Chinese government. It is openly admitted by various agencies within the US government and associated NGOs that the State Department’s “National Endowment for Democracy” was the leading driver behind the far-left violence seen in the Chinese city.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who I believe is somewhat of a lunatic, was the one pushing for this revolutionary action in Hong Kong. The Wuhan Coronavirus appeared just as the violence in Hong Kong was beginning to subside, which indicates that it is very likely that after seeing that the Hong Kong program would not accomplish its goal of completely destabilizing the Chinese economy and causing the Chinese people to lose faith in their government, Mike Pompeo and his people decided to pull the trigger on releasing a bioweapon.
Clearly, at this point the virus is out of control, and I do not believe that the goal was ever for it to leave China. I think the goal was to create another SARS type situation, and things spun out of control, because the people running things in America are not especially competent, and are acting irrationally as a result of the fears of a rising China.
Whatever the case, I am happy to see the Chinese introducing this information to the English-speaking world, as it has become the default explanation for the virus on the Chinese internet, while the utterly locked down and controlled English language internet has been sheltered from the idea.
The media can of course call the Chinese conspiracy theorists and everything else, but they do have to report on the fact that the Chinese are now saying, in English, that the virus is a US bioweapon, and that explanation will make sense to a lot of people.
I hope that just as the Chinese eventually made a point to press the issue that the US State Department was behind the Hong Kong riots, they continue to push the discussion regarding the mysterious origins of this virus. As more and more people die, and the chaos rages across the planet, more people are going to be demanding a better explanation than bat soup.
I want to say again that in my view, it would be a very good idea for the Chinese to point out the fact that DARPA was doing research into the development of Coronavirus bioweapons, because that is where a clear picture of what is most likely going on here begins to emerge.
