I see that the Chinese doctor who first reported on the Wuhan virus has vanished into thin air as did the first doctor to try to alert the authorities of the virus' existence. I find it interesting how they keep vanishing in the largest most comprehensive surveillance state in the world. Where did she go?
I think the virus was deliberately released into the wilds of Wuhan by the Chinese government and their intent was to have a virulent violently contagious disease spread out of control in an insignificant province before letting anybody outside know about it. By the time it was finally detected in the West the contagion there would be widespread and then China would announce that it too was suffering from the disease, most noticeably in Wuhan and Hubei Province and their backup stories about how America was somehow responsible would be taken as gospel by the worthless scumbags that make up American media.
In other words, the commissars are putting bullets into the heads of those responsible for letting the cat out of the bag early. They completely lost sight of the fact that they now live in an interconnected world and even though they threw Western journalists out of China according to plan, but too late to matter, the word got out long before their plan intended.
I think the Chinese government really really wanted Italy to take the fall as the genesis point for the disease and did their best to carry it off but responsible medical people not read into the government's plan spoiled the plan. Next time they'll be more careful and simply load containers stuffed with the organisms on container ships carrying Chinese cargo and send them to any port that still permits China to offload their cargoes.
China may have shot its imperial ambitions in the foot, or head. They rarely distinguish between either when shooting the peasants that make up 99.99% of that country. I expect their aim to improve as they gain practice.
