(TargetLiberty.org) – China’s Communist regime is building a smokescreen around the origins of the COVID pandemic. Many feel that Beijing is obstructing an international probe into how the virus infected its first victims and is trying to shift the blame to the US.
In an attempt to redeem itself for its poor performance during the coronavirus outbreak, the World Health Organization (WHO) is currently investigating where the virus came from and how it made the jump to humans. Unfortunately and not surprisingly, China has decided not to cooperate. It seems Beijing doesn’t like the fact that scientists have started to ask questions about leaks in a Chinese virus lab. Although the WHO is sticking to the line that the disease probably jumped to humans from an animal, the Communists still aren’t cooperating.
In a desperate bid to avoid blame for COVID, Chinese state media is now pointing the finger at Fort Detrick in Maryland.

Now China has returned to a conspiracy theory it pushed in the first weeks of the pandemic, claiming the US released the virus. On Monday, Chinese foreign minister Zhao Lijian tweeted that the WHO should inspect Fort Detrick, MD – home to the US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases. China seems to expect the world to believe that US Army scientists created the virus then released it in China, which would have been the world’s biggest and boldest act of biological warfare.
WHO Chief Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who has been accused of being a Chinese puppet in the past, is currently asking China for access to its labs, but China insists any inspections must be decided by “member states” – meaning the Communist party will get to decide if its own labs should be investigated. Does anyone want to guess what the answer will be?
