Spy documents reveal China lied to the world about coronavirus
According to a report published in The Sun, an explosive spy file compiled by Five Eyes intelligence agencies of the US, Canada, the UK, Australia and New Zealand alleges that China lied to the world about coronavirus by covering up the outbreak – which is killing tens of thousands around the world.
Experts warn that based on this 15 page document obtained by The Saturday Telegraph, a case could be taken against China for its mishandling of deadly coronavirus.
The dossier reveals that a laboratory situated near the infamous wet market in Wuhan, the first epic centre of the pandemic, had been studying deadly bat-derived coronaviruses.
It also stated that China’s secrecy surrounding the virus led to an “assault on international transparency”.
“Despite evidence of human-human transmission from early December, PRC authorities deny it until January 20,” it added.
“The World Health Organisation does the same. Yet officials in Taiwan raised concerns as early as December 31, as did experts in Hong Kong on January 4.”
The file claims that China had denied the virus could be spread between humans during the outbreak’s early stages. China then took weeks to admit it could be passed on in this way.
Surprisingly, On January 14, weeks after the alleged evidence, the World Health Organization tweeted: “Preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel #coronavirus (2019-nCoV) identified in #Wuhan, #China.”

Whereas, On Thursday, President Donald Trump said the World Health Organization should be “ashamed of themselves” and blasted them as a “press agency” for China.
During a press conference, Trump said: “I think the World Health Organization should be ashamed of themselves.”
The President has also urged senior US officials to figure out a way to “punish” China for its handling of the coronavirus pandemic, including stripping it of its sovereign immunity.
According to The Washington Post Trump and his aides have privately discussed stripping China of its “sovereign immunity,” aiming to enable the US government or victims to sue China for damages and
if successful then experts warn that the move would likely shatter the already crumbling world economy and break the already strained diplomatic relationship between Washington and Beijing.
They also discussed option of cancelling the U.S. debt to China.
The spy dossier also revealed China’s efforts for silencing or “disappearing” of doctors who tried to speak out about the virus, the destruction of evidence in laboratories and refusing to provide samples to scientists who were working on a vaccine. The file specifically says that China began censoring news of the virus from December 31.
According to the file, China deleted terms including “SARS variation,” “Wuhan Seafood market” and “Wuhan Unknown Pneumonia” from search engines.
“Millions of people leave Wuhan after the outbreak and before Beijing locks down the city on January 23,” the document states.
“Throughout February, Beijing presses the US, Italy, India, Australia, Southeast Asian neighbors and others not to protect themselves via travel restrictions, even as the PRC imposes severe restrictions at home.”
