Australian News Editor Says, Coronavirus Made In China But No One Will Admit It

The ongoing coronavirus in China shows no signs of slowing down with more and more countries reporting cases of it. However, it isn’t a fraction of the number of cases in China that according to the World Health Organization’s last situation report on 23.2.20, a total of 78,811 cases has been confirmed out of which 77K are from China alone with a total death toll of 2445. As controversies and new theories abound, a Sydney News editor has written a sequel to his already viral editorial blaming China for the virus and asking them to admit it.

1Sydney Journalist editorial asks China to admit “Covid19 made in China”

The editor of the Sydney Morning Herald wrote a sequel to his already controversial editorial titled “Chinese Virus Pandamonium” asking the world and China to admit that the Coronavirus which emerged late last year was a product of China because it originated in the country. It irked the Chinese government who called the piece racist. Not to be outdone, Peter Hatcher, the political and international news editor for the morning herald has gone on to warn that there could be future outbreaks of the virus if China did not own up to the results and stop covering up the truth.

2The truth was disclosed 2 weeks after the first cases

The origins of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) which is, of course, common knowledge now first affected people in Wuhan Hubei, China from December 8, 2019. The PRC thought of disclosing this fact only after two weeks had flown by infecting a huge number of people in the province where it assumed mammoth proportions for a small area. It was almost a month later that China officially declared the new strain of the coronavirus after SARS that took a heavy toll worldwide in 2002 and 2003.

Peter Hartcher wrote a very strong editorial to this effect pointing out the main reason that China was reluctant to reveal the grim situation in Wuhan is because President Xi Jinping wanted to protect his 9 years in power. He says China wanted to “control its own people and manage foreign governments.”

3People in Wuhan were turned away, hospitals were asked to report zero cases

In the editorial Hartcher also mentions that when people in Wuhan started showing up with a new virus, infected people were bug turned away by the hospitals who were instructed to report “zero infections.” As a result, they were sent home, infected others and that’s how people began dying because of no treatment. What was the reason for this he asks? One of the reasons was because at the time in Wuhan there was an important meeting being held between provincial and city officials and no one wanted to deliver bad news.

Hartcher quoted an eminent Australian virologist John Mackenzie who said that the cover-ups were “reprehensible”.
