According to a dossier written by apprehensive and worried Western governments, China intentionally suppressed the severity of the coronavirus just as it was beginning to spread.
The dossier details that the Chinese government – to the “endangerment of other countries” – covered up and censored news of the virus.
As the outbreak was rapidly progressing, China…
- Refused to provide live samples of the virus to international scientists working on a vaccine
- Silenced doctors who spoke out by “unpersoning” them
- Destroyed laboratory evidence
According to the dossier, on December 31, 2019, China began to censor news of the virus online. They manipulated search engines and social media to exclude the terms “SARS variation”, “Wuhan Seafood market”, and “Wuhan Unknown Pneumonia”.
On January 3, three days later, the dossier states China’s National Health Commission issued a “no-publication order” regarding the virus and ordered coronavirus samples either moved to designated testing sites or destroyed.
China denied claims that the coronavirus could be spread via human-to-human transmission – until January 20.
All while they were denying that now well-established fact, China detained doctors, issued a gag order on the virus, and closed Zhang Yongzhen’s Shanghai-based lab one day after sharing genomic sequence data for the virus.

As late as January 14, the World Health Organization was tweeting that “Chinese authorities” found no evidence of transmission via human-to-human.
President Trump hit the W.H.O. on Thursday, saying:
I think that the World Health Organization should be ashamed of themselves because they’re like the public relations agency for China.
U.S. intelligence agencies are becoming increasingly confident that the virus originated from the Wuhan Institute of Virology – although both China and the W.H.O. have staunchly rebuffed that notion. On Sunday, Mike Pompeo said there was “enormous evidence” the virus originated in the Wuhan lab.
Huang Yan Ling, a researcher at the Wuhan Institute was reportedly “patient zero” according to rumors found on Chinese social media by the South China Morning Post.
After those rumors, she was reported as missing with her biography and image scrubbed from the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s website.
Although the Institute denied she was patient zero and alleged she was alive and well, she has not been seen since.
Interestingly enough, the World Health Organization and the mainstream media have taken to blaming Trump while ignoring China’s inexcusable transgressions.
A dossier prepared by the “Five Eyes” intelligence community has confirmed China’s coronavirus cover-up. China’s secrecy toward the virus has amounted to an “assault on international transparency”, according to the dossier.
If only now the media would see their obligation to pay attention and report on a shockingly horrid side to the ongoing pandemic: China fudged their numbers and didn’t disclose the full severity of the virus, eliminating any potential to stop the coronavirus in its beginning.
Then again, said media might have vested interest in reporting anything anti-China, as detailed by The American Conservative:
A few weeks after the meeting [between Comcast and China], NBC News stories appeared saying the only new coronavirus cases in China had come from foreigners, and another one about China asserting its global leadership. These stories would no doubt be considered objective and fair by the Chinese diplomatic corps… but never… with… the Trump administration.
