In 2018, Diplomats Warned of Risky Coronavirus Experiments in a Wuhan Lab. No One Listened.

After seeing a risky lab, they wrote a cable warning to Washington. But it was ignored.

POLITICO — On January 15, in its last days, President Donald Trump’s State Department put out a statement with serious claims about the origins of the Covid-19 pandemic. The statement said the U.S. intelligence community had evidence that several researchers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology laboratory were sick with Covid-like symptoms in autumn 2019—implying the Chinese government had hidden crucial information about the outbreak for months—and that the WIV lab, despite “presenting itself as a civilian institution,” was conducting secret research projects with the Chinese military. The State Department alleged a Chinese government cover-up and asserted that “Beijing continues today to withhold vital information that scientists need to protect the world from this deadly virus, and the next one.”

The exact origin of the new coronavirus remains a mystery to this day, but the search for answers is not just about assigning blame. Unless the source is located, the true path of the virus can’t be traced, and scientists can’t properly study the best ways to prevent future outbreaks.

The original Chinese government story, that the pandemic spread from a seafood market in Wuhan, was the first and therefore most widely accepted theory. But cracks in that theory slowly emerged throughout the late winter and spring of 2020. The first known case of Covid-19 in Wuhan, it was revealed in February, had no connection to the market. The Chinese government closed the market in January and sanitized it before proper samples could be taken. It wouldn’t be until May that the Chinese Centers for Disease Control disavowed the market theory, admitting it had no idea how the outbreak began, but by then it had become the story of record, in China and internationally.

In the spring of 2020, inside the U.S. government, some officials began to see and collect evidence of a different, perhaps more troubling theory—that the outbreak had a connection to one of the laboratories in Wuhan, among them the WIV, a world leading center of research on bat coronaviruses.

To some inside the government, the name of the laboratory was familiar. Its research on bat viruses had already drawn the attention of U.S. diplomats and officials at the Beijing Embassy in late 2017, prompting them to alert Washington that the lab’s own scientists had reported “a serious shortage of appropriately trained technicians and investigators needed to safely operate this high-containment laboratory.”

But their cables to Washington were ignored. […]

  1. Interestingly enough, right around the same time in 2018, when Canada’s Trudeau invited Communist-China’s PLA to train in Winter 2019 Mountain Survival with Canadian Commandos near Ontario. In Common Sense 101 pattern, Winter 2019 was when the CCP Virus was released (allegedly accidental (BS).

    Together, these 4 events (1- March 2018 Diplomatic Warning of Wujan Lab Activities, 2- March 2018 China’s PLA is invited to train their best Mountain Commandos in Ontario Canada scheduled for Winter 2019, 3-Winter 2019 Wujan CCP Virus is released on US/the World, 4- Together, all staging the opportunity for 2020 Election Fraud on US Soil, after Joe Biden & Family made clandestine deals with Communist-China under Joe’s 2008-2015 then Color of Vice-Presidential Authority.

    The investigator in me renders my perception within this Totality of the Circumstances – being that, collectively, it clearly appears Communist-China was quietly planning with Canada’s Trudeau for a huge fight at our Northern Border if Donald Trump won the 2020 Election, and it was all dependent on their CCP Virus success.

    Thank you Winter Watch for this incredible Article today. Now we know the CCP Virus succeeded in over-throwing our US Government, via our tampered/failed 2020 Election Process, and the CCP’s Manchurian Candidate is now in Command as JOETUS. If our FBI and Intelligence Community haven’t yet figured this all out, maybe they should read this post.

    I survived Cold War I as a young boy in the Middle-East, and We Will Survive this Cold War Round II, so help US God.

  2. Bottom line is that, if Trump had not called Trudeau in 2018 to demand he stand down those planned Winter 2019 Joint Military Ops in Ontario Canada with China’s PLA, China’s Commanders knew our QRFs would go VERY HOT and Operational on them. So, by the time the China-Biden-Tampered Election pushed Trump out and put in their Boy JOETUS, there was no-longer a need for the PLA to fight. My perception as a US Citizen.
