In 2015, Chinese military scientists detailed a plan to release a bioengineered SARS coronavirus in order to cause mass terror and advance the communist regime’s global political ambitions.
These new revelations come amid growing concern that the COVID-19 pandemic was caused by a laboratory leak in Wuhan, a facility that has collaborated with the Chinese military.
The theories of the Chinese military scientists were detailed in a 2015 book, as first reported by News Corp’s The Australian. The researchers advocated for the weaponization of pathogens, including SARS coronaviruses, in order to “cause terror and gain political and strategic advantage” over an adversary state.
According to World Health Organization data, the SARS epidemic infected 2,769 people and killed 425 people outside of mainland China from 2002 to 2003. (WHO). According to experts, the numbers within China are likely much higher than what is officially reported.
The Military Medical Science Press, a publishing house owned by the Chinese military, the People’s Liberation Army, published the 261-page book titled “The Unnatural Origin of SARS and Genetic Weapons Based on Man-Made Viruses” in February 2015. (PLA).
The authors wrote, “The development of bioweapons has entered an unprecedented new stage in history.”
The authors then pleaded with Chinese experts to “understand and pay attention to contemporary genetic weapons” for any future wars, including the possibility of a third world war.
The authors’ use of “contemporary genetic weapons” refers to the use of experimental biotechnology and animal testing to modify the genes of pathogens, which could be tailored to target specific genetic traits of enemy populations.
The authors argued that using such bioweapons would be more advantageous than using conventional warfare and military actions because military moves can be traced back to the state and result in international condemnation.
Genetic weapons, on the other hand, “can be concealed [in deployment] and it is difficult to find evidence against them,” according to the authors.
“Even in the face of academic, virological, or animal evidence, [one] can deny, prevent [someone] from raising the issue, and suppress [potential accusations], leaving international organisations and righteous people helpless.”
One of the book’s two editors-in-chief, Xu Dezhong, was an analyst for China’s national SARS prevention and treatment team at the time. According to Baike, a Wikipedia-like platform run by Chinese search engine Baidu, his duties also included reporting to China’s top military command, the Chinese Military Commission.
Xu was also a professor at China’s Air Force Medical University’s department of military epidemiology. The school, formerly known as the Fourth Military Medical University, is located in Xi’an, the capital of Shaanxi Province in central China. Among the 18 authors of the book were ten other scientists from this military university.
Li Feng, the deputy chief of the bureau of epidemic prevention at the PLA’s Logistics Department, was the other editor-in-chief. It is unknown whether Li still holds this position.
The book went into great detail about the potential consequences of a bioweapon attack and the best conditions for releasing such a weapon.
According to the book, any attack is likely to overwhelm the local health care system near ground zero. The medical sector would face an “enormous burden” as a result of the sheer number of patients, according to the report. Furthermore, the need to quarantine patients as well as provide prolonged medical treatment would put additional strain on medical resources.
According to the authors, a steady flow of wind in one direction is required to transport the bioweapon’s airborne pathogens to the targeted area. Because these pathogens can be weakened by direct sunlight, they recommend releasing them at “dawn, dusk, night, or cloudy day.”
Furthermore, the authors stated that rain and snow are not ideal conditions because they “lower the effective concentration” of the airborne pathogens.
The publication of the book comes more than a year after the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, also known as novel coronavirus, was discovered in Wuhan, China. Because of the CCP’s mishandling of the initial outbreak, the disease spread globally when it could have been contained, killing more than 3 million people worldwide.
As the world searches for the source of the pandemic, an increasing number of voices are claiming that the virus originated at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), and have demanded that the CCP open the institute for investigation. Beijing has denied the allegations, but has not made the lab’s records available for independent review.
Former US State Department lead COVID-19 investigator David Asher stated in March that the virus could be the result of a bioweapon research accident at the WIV.
The State Department published its findings on the WIV, China’s only P4 lab (the highest biosafety level), in January, concluding that the institute “has engaged in classified research, including laboratory animal experiments, on behalf of the Chinese military since at least 2017.”
According to the department, “several researchers inside the WIV became sick in autumn 2019, before the first identified case of the outbreak, with symptoms consistent with both COVID-19 and common seasonal illnesses.”
The WIV was also discovered to have participated in a state-funded project studying animal pathogens in wild animals from 2012 to 2018. A team of military and civilian scientists collaborated on the project.
However, a March report by a World Health Organization-assembled team of Chinese and foreign scientists dismissed the lab leak theory as “extremely unlikely.” The report was widely panned, with 14 countries, including the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, expressing concern about the findings and calling for a “transparent and independent analysis and evaluation” of the pandemic’s origins.
In a recent op-ed for The Epoch Times, Anders Corr, principal at the New York-based political consultancy firm Corr Analytics, said the Chinese military scientists’ textbook should serve as a warning of the possibility of a “surprise bio-attack from China.”
“Let us not wait for a bio-attack. Close China’s bioweapons programmes immediately by defensively decoupling from, and thus minimising, the country’s STEM infrastructure, “Corr wrote. STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) is an abbreviation for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
He went on to say, “Put maximum economic and political pressure on China to nudge it toward much-needed democratisation.” We will only allow the country back into the international system once it has democratised. “
