What Happened In Wuhan?
In a comprehensive probe into the origin of the Covid-19 pandemic, Sky News Australia investigative reporter Sharri Markson reveals what really happened in Wuhan, China, in the days leading up to the first coronavirus cases.
Her investigation begins with the Wuhan Military Games in 2019, when several athletes from 100 countries fell ill with what later would be discovered as an early strain of coronavirus. More than 9,000 athletes attended the games and officials were immediately alarmed at the potential of a super-spreader virus. Says David Asher, former State Department Covid investigator, “It is suspicious. We see indications in our own data, that NIH has, that there was Covid circulating in the United States certainly as early as December (2019), possibly earlier than that.”
Markson says no one was ever tested at the games, but Chinese activist and the country’s most famous defector to the U.S., Wei Jingsheng, knew something was wrong. He believes China took the opportunity to spread the virus at the military games, because the event was flooded with foreigners from across the world. “I told Dimon (fellow activist Dimon Lui) of the Chinese government using some strange weapons,” he says, “including biological weapons, because I knew they were doing experiments of that sort.”
Former U.S. Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe says that if there was no one to blame, the Chinese government would not have shutdown Wuhan. “They would not have silenced doctors, scientists and journalists, and disappearing some of them,” he says. In the following report, Markson brings us more details, including analysis with President Trump, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and other officials.
