When it comes to our current coronavirus crisis, a great many international observers have been keeping a keen eye on China as of late.
That’s because China’s “warnings” to the world have now been deemed completely inaccurate, and there is a growing belief that Beijing’s mistakes may not have been a case of simple negligence.
And no, this isn’t some rant from a wild-eyed conspiracy theorist.
A research dossier compiled by the so-called “Five Eyes” intelligence alliance, that reportedly concludes China intentionally hid or destroyed evidence of the coronavirus pandemic, is consistent with U.S. findings about the origins of the outbreak so far, senior U.S. officials told Fox News on Saturday.
The 15-page document from the intelligence agencies of the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Australia and New Zealand, was obtained by Australia’s Saturday Telegraph newspaper and finds that China’s secrecy amounted to an “assault on international transparency.”
The dossier, which is likely to further increase pressure on the Chinese government to explain its actions and early statements, points to the initial denial by the government that the virus could be transmitted between humans, the silencing of doctors, destruction of evidence, and a refusal to provide samples to scientists working on a vaccine.
Some US lawmakers have already begun pondering the possibility that China could pay reparations to the rest of the world on account of their uncouth lack of communication, and what increasingly appears to be some sort of coverup meant to catch the rest of the world off-guard.
