China Finally Admits It Ordered Labs To Purge Virus Samples

Citing safety and bureaucracy as its reasons, a Chinese official admitted Friday that China’s government ordered the destruction of samples of the coronavirus.

“The CCP still has not shared the virus sample from inside of China with the outside world, making it impossible to track the disease’s evolution,” he told reporters on April 22.

On Friday, a Chinese official claimed there were good reasons for destroying samples of the virus.

Liu Dengfeng of the Chinese National Health Commission’s science and education department said samples of the virus were destroyed at unauthorized labs to “prevent the risk to laboratory biological safety and prevent secondary disasters caused by unidentified pathogens.”

“The remarks made by some U.S. officials were taken out of context and intended to confuse,” he said at a news briefing in Beijing, according to the South China Morning Post.

Liu said “national-level professional institutes” were seeking to identify the virus causing the disease when it first impacted residents of Wuhan.

“Based on comprehensive research and expert opinion, we decided to temporarily manage the pathogen causing the pneumonia as Class II – highly pathogenic – and imposed biosafety requirements on sample collection, transport and experimental activities, as well as destroying the samples,” he said.

Liu claimed China’s only motive was to act in accordance with its standard practice for handling dangerous virus samples, saying labs that do not meet safety requirements should not have samples.

In February, a provincial health commission notice called upon unauthorized labs to either destroy their samples or send them to a larger center.

Further, the Chinese magazine Caixin reported the same month that at least one company was ordered to destroy early samples of the virus.

The magazine said certain hospitals, hoping to identify the virus, had sent samples to private gene sequencing companies for analysis.

Some results that came back in late December showed the virus was from the same family as SARS, according to the magazine. At least one company that had analyzed samples was ordered to destroy them.

Liu said China might share samples of the virus “in an orderly manner within the framework of the World Health Organization.”

China will act to “further strengthen international cooperation and scientific research, promote the development, production and fair distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, diagnostic tools and therapeutic drugs,” he said.

But Pompeo has painted China’s actions as part of its effort to hide the truth.

“It covered up how dangerous the disease is. It didn’t report sustained human-to-human transmission for a month until it was in every province inside of China,” he said on April 22. “It censored those who tried to warn the world, it ordered a halt to testing of new samples, and it destroyed existing samples.”

  1. Mr, President, April 16, 2020

    As our findings recently found out that China purposely made the Covin-19 virus a highly contagious deadly virus in their country as a bio-chemical and unleashed it into the world. Especially the U.S.A. without foretelling us, is an act of war!

    China knew what they were doing as they developed Covin-19 as a bio-weapon, to attacked the U.S.A. and had ‘carriers’ infiltrate into our countries. (trace where those ‘carriers’ went from China)

    THAT IS AN ACT OF WAR !!!

    Since the beginning, I felt that the Covin-19 virus was purposely man-made. We never could trust China.

    China has a massive population in their country and wouldn’t mind if the Chinese government liquidated half of their population so they could command and make rules/laws to more easily control their country!

    Because of that way of thinking, China could (and probably did) say to the rest of the world, “the virus got away from us, oops!’” Even though they intended to attack the U.S.A. and the rest of the planet with a bio-chemical weapon of war! They didn’t even use commonsense to lock down and close their country!

    Now we know how and where and why this Covin-19 virus was developed, what is the United States and the other countries going to do to reprimand and punish China??? (attack them?) (take all there assets & holdings?)

    Covin-19 virus devastated us more than Pearl Harbor and the World Trade Center.

    WE HAVE TO RETALIATE !!!

  2. I thought from the start we would find out the source of this and it would be bio-chemical weapon of war. this cost me the worse stay in the Hospital i ever had in my 74 year on this earth. I hope we can get a Vaccine for this plague. If they created it may they have an Antidote for it.

  3. While I trust the CCP as I would trust a dog with rabies, it makes no sense to weaponize a virus that mainly attacks the elderly.
    That would make more sense if a government or governments wanted to rid itself of a population that is an expense on the taxes, i.e.social security and retirement funds. Just as evil , but different motives.
