The closing and disinfecting of the Wuhan market was a distraction PR stunt to show the world the Chinese government were dealing with a hygiene problem and not a possible viral leak from a laboratory by the time it was announced it was a pandemic i had already returned to the UK and spent all December recovering from the virus i contracted in Vietnam in November .

There is no evidence at all this so-called virus came from a bat from the wet market of Wuhan. This so-called virus never satisfied Koch's Postulates: Koch's Postulates to Identify the Causative Agent of an Infectious Disease Four criteria that were established by Robert Koch to identify the causative agent of a particular disease, these include: 1)the microorganism or other pathogen must be present in all cases of the disease 2)The pathogen can be isolated from the diseased host and grown in pure culture 3)The pathogen from the pure culture must cause the disease when inoculated into a healthy, susceptible laboratory animal 4)The pathogen must be reisolated from the new host and shown to be the same as the originally inoculated pathogen. Also if epicenter was Wuhan, Shanghai, Beijing, and Shenzhen would've been ravaged by it faster than Italy and Spain.

France found patient diagnosed as flu was actually a COVID 19. US Beveville mayor diagnosed as flu in November 2019, tested positive for COVID 19 antibodies. So this crappy time line is totally wrong. COVID 19 originated from USA spread around the world

Wow! It's weird watching this video months after, into the pandemic and reading the comments from people who had similar thoughts and conversations as me back then, and had no idea how this new virus would take over the world. I'm feel like I'm from the future (which i technically am). "Hi I'm from the future, everyone watching this as of February stop studying for exams cause you wont have any, prepare for worldwilde lockdown, but DON'T PANIC BUY, this also means cancel holidays as flights are banned and get refunds for your music festivals cause they'll be cancelled. Also for the Americans get rid of PD Trump, he's going to mess everything up and inject himself with bleach. And prepare for nuclear war cause Kim Jun Un has the virus and if he dies you know what his dying wish will be. BOOM. STAY HOME STAY SAFE.

The virus is spreading like wildfire Cuz the media is lying to us because the media are into their plan of reducing the world's population because the media's and the journalist or not doing their work telling us that they have mixed the AIDS virus with the SARS virus to create the covid-2 aka covid-19 dec 19th 2019 and that if we don't protect ourself we will all die. you guys are making jokes in the media creating debates but you are not telling us the truth you just keep showing us people with pins on the jacket representing the reduction of the world's population since the 19th of December 2019 the Chinese warn the world. donald john trump closed the doors. Thats the only news that's important. You guys don't have one journalist. you guys don't have one person that said the truth since November 2019 all the news are accomplice, they repeat what they are told they don't investigate they are no journalists in no establishment. Not one real journalist they just want to have their paycheck and they repeat what they are told to say they are dogmatic.*NO TESTING, NO VACCIN, NO PLAN BUT THEY WANT YOU TO GO BACK TO WORK, MONEY IS ALL THEY WANT, THEY DONT CARE ABOUT THE DEADS. www.sciencesetavenir.fr/sante/coronavirus-li-wenliang-medecin-qui-avait-tente-d-alerter-les-autorites-est-mort-du-2019-ncov_141298 The World Health Organization refuse to give the USA a sample of the virus and told them it wasn't contagious from Human to human from December 19th to the 11th of February 2020 they are guilty as Sin

*It all happened because some person in China interacted with bats. Bats had the virus. The virus was created from bats. It was a bit of China’s fault as they STILL let people travel while the virus was spreading. This is all kinda our faults..*

You fogot to mention around January 18, the Wuhan goverment held a 40,000 family banquet where they all shared meals. Addtionally, the govemrent handed out 200,000 free travel tickets to ensure the Wuhans left their home to travel. " Wuhan’s government was overly optimistic; the city held a potluck banquet to celebrate the looming New Year holiday, with more than 40,000 families attending, and issued 200,000 free travel tickets to the public, seeking to boost the tourism industry.

All flights from China should have been immediately stopped. Only exceptions should have been made for those returning back to their own country who in turn should have been quaranteed on arrival. China also has a lot to answer for. Their culture of eating meat not fit for human consumption has to end now.

I would strongly recommend what we did after World War 2 by demanding reparations from Nazi Germany and do the same by having every country demanding reparations from China.
renge9909 Month ago
Yeah, it's not like Germany had much of a choice in these matters after it got annihilated by Soviet and Allied forces. China, on the other hand, will emerge as the world's factory still, in control of multiple nations' supply chains of crucial equipment and material. lol. Good luck. It's like Iraq asking America for reparations over it's unjustified invasion.

Jeffrey Bouvier
Jeffrey Bouvier Month ago
Real news story is why it was spreading for this long without us shutting our borders or doing anything in January? Or why the WHO said it was a pandemic in march when I myself seen this news in January at a bar of all places, or also why our military intelligence that reported it in January was ignored? These are very important questions because the answers to them will show you how incompetent our government is.
Christian Petersen
"The greatest concern is that the virus spreads to countries with weaker healthcare systems that are not prepared to deal with it." - Turns out that this concern was warranted, only it wasn't Nigeria, and it wasn't Mexico or Turkey - it was EU and USA. Here's hoping that the countries that are next in line for the pandemic respect the first rule of pandemic: Don't be arrogant.

Joseph Bearup Don't make death your confession. Many overcome the virus but they don't report the numbers. Research and consider Zane Hellas Pure Oil of Oregano. I used to order from Greece but is now sold on Amazon. Also research consider Olive leaf extract & zinc. All 3 boost immune system and the first 2 are potent anti viral, antibiotic, anti inflammatory. May God be with you. Stay strong and believe for your healing. My prayers are with you. Good is bigger than covid19.
