The world is paying a horrible price for a huge mistake made by China –The Corona Virus.

As you all know, SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) was also a virus which originated in China (The Province of Guangdong). They do not learn from their mistakes.

One thing that is surprising is that the country where the virus originated (China) has about 15 times fewer cases than a country which lies in its opposite hemisphere (The United States of America).

Now I would like to shed some light on China’s secrets.

First of all, one of the first cases of Corona virus were reported around December 1 and the political leaders did not report these cases until January 3, thereby losing precious time. By then, the viral pneumonia had infected many health workers and about 50 people were hospitalized.

Secondly, American officials claimed that during this period of time (December 1- January 3), China started hoarding supplies of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), which resulted in them to increase the number of imports and decrease the number of exports of medical supplies.

Thirdly, new evidence suggests that China’s tallies of deaths are unfeasibly low and the Dragon has underreported its number of cases (around 40,000)

Another disaster is that the Dragon did not inform the WHO (World Health Organisation) that the virus was capable of human to human transmission, that it is a contagion (a disease spread by close contact).

But why is the Chinese government so eager to cover up the outbreak?

Perhaps because recent reports state that the virus may not have originated in Wuhan’s wet market. It might have begun as an accidental lab release in Wuhan which is about 300 yards away from the market.

Now someone has to pay for the damages done to the world, damages which are `irreparable` (as the American government states). That someone should be the Chinese government.

The USA, state of Missouri has filed a lawsuit against China on grounds of subduing information, arresting whistle blowers and denying the contagious nature of the virus. Unfortunately, the Dragon cannot erase the pandemic’s toll it has unshackled on the world.
