The Chinese Communist Party carried out the largest cover-up activity in human history
[Epoch Times News on August 3, 2021](Epoch Times reporter Lin Yan comprehensive report) US Representative Michael McCaul of Texas introduced Republicans to the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Monday (August 2) The latest findings of the investigation into the possible source of the COVID-19 virus. He said that the Chinese Communist Party carried out “the biggest cover-up in human history.”
As the No. 1 Republican on the Foreign Affairs Committee of the House of Representatives, McCall said in an interview with Fox’s “U.S. News Room” that the CCP is playing with fire.
The virus traceability report published by Republicans in the House of Representatives on Monday used a lot of space to introduce the activities of Wuhan and its surrounding areas before the outbreak. These activities seem to indicate that the virus may have been circulating as early as September 2019, earlier than the World Health Organization (WHO). The first official response to the virus. According to information released by the WHO, a media statement published on its official website by the Wuhan Health Commission reprinted by the WHO China Office on December 31, 2019, stated that “viral pneumonia” was discovered.
According to the report, in September 2019, the genetic sequencing database of the Wuhan laboratory was closed in the middle of the night, which may indicate that they were trying to “hide” or “cover up” some major concerns.
McCall said satellite images at about the same time showed increased activity in hospitals near the Wuhan laboratory.
According to the report, according to the satellite images of Wuhan in September and October 2019, the number of visits to local hospitals near the headquarters of Wuhan Virus Institute has increased significantly, and the number of patients with symptoms similar to the new coronavirus has also increased abnormally.
There is also a doubt. A few months before the outbreak of COVID-19, the Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory requested a bid for major renovations of the air safety and waste treatment systems of research facilities that had been in operation for less than two years.
The conclusion of the report on the origin of the pandemic said in part, “This virus is likely to be of natural origin, or may be the result of genetic manipulation. It is likely that it was collected in a cave in Yunnan, China sometime between 2012 and 2015. Yes, after that, the poor safety standards and practices of the laboratory were leaked out, and the situation was aggravated by dangerous and inappropriate’functional gain’ studies without a sufficient level of biosafety.
“The virus later spread to the center of Wuhan through the Wuhan subway before the World Military Games. Those sports events evolved into a medium of international transmission, and then the virus was carried around the world.”
In interviews with Fox and Voice of America, McCall also mentioned the October 2019 Military World Games. He said that 9,000 people have entered China. According to data from the Foreign Affairs Committee, some people returned to their countries with flu-like symptoms.
McCall also called for sanctions on top researchers participating in the Wuhan laboratory, and specifically mentioned Dr. Peter Daszak, the president of the EcoHealth Alliance in the United States, hoping that he would cooperate with China. The coronavirus research cooperation between him and his relationship with the Wuhan Institute of Virology are subject to congressional questioning.
From 2014 to 2019, Dassak’s institution, through grants from the National Institutes of Health, funded the Wuhan laboratory for US$3.4 million for research on bat coronavirus. For the past 15 years, Dasak has been using this part of the funds to conduct research on bat coronaviruses with Shi Zhengli, a researcher at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
“We have found strong evidence that Dasak is the public spokesperson of the CCP’s false information activities, aimed at suppressing public discussion of potential laboratory leaks,” the report reads.
The content of this Congressional Republican report is mainly based on existing public information and reports, and updates and makes inferences about the origin of the virus.
In May of this year, President Biden asked the intelligence community to review the origin of the pandemic and mention the report to him within 90 days.
Republicans plan to publish the most detailed case they have before the White House report is released. They believe that Wuhan researchers may have genetically manipulated the virus. “A large amount of evidence shows that SARS-CoV-2 was accidentally leaked by the laboratory of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”
