One of the world’s top epidemiologists admits he first heard about the pandemic outbreak in Wuhan more than two weeks before it was disclosed to global health bodies.
The revelation by Ian Lipkin, a professor at Columbia University honoured by China for work on the first Sars epidemic earlier this century, undermines the official Beijing narrative on the origins.
Prof Lipkin told a documentary by the director Spike Lee that he learned of ‘the new outbreak’ on December 15, even repeating the date for clarification.link
Beijing handled early news of the pandemic as if covid were a bioweapon knowingly released by them. In turn, USA handled its response to covid as if they were intending to make the pandemic as bad as possible. It seems clear to me both parties are guilty of furthering a deadly disease. That could mean that at some levels (para-governmental) the two are cooperating. It could mean that their cooperation is temporary and will break down into conflict. It could mean there has been no cooperation but forces within USA are milking the crisis for political and monetary gain. There is also a credible theory that the entire thing was planned and executed by bad actors in USA. ABN
