Fishy facts on Covid-19

Further to the letter from Bill Gerard, I posted a similar theory on Costa Blanca Forum some weeks ago. The question is: how do you send a virus to the West without killing millions of your own people? The answer is simple: you create a mild virus, call it SARS, but make the world believe that it is very serious and then vaccinate your population against it but include an antibody against your lethal virus.
Note that SARS was only active in mainland China and Hong Kong. Amazing that the Chinese were able to contain such a serious virus within their territory.
The Chinese then spent the few years vaccinating the whole population against SARS which gave them the opportunity to include an antibody against future viruses such as corona. Easy isn’t it?
Why has New York the highest level of corona cases? Because it is the icon of the Western Imperialists and could be brought to its knees by a few Chinese tourists with corona virus aerosols visiting the tourist hot spots – easy isn’t it?
I think that the age of biological warfare is upon us and the Chinese are the first (?) to exploit it.

  1. Fake news such as this is incredibly dangerous. It actively harms the effort of countries that are doing their very best to contain the infection. The fact that countries such as the US have been slow to implement Corona measures has exacerbated the spread of the virus. What is worse, the rate of conspiracy theories, such as this letter, is far higher in the US and the UK. This can be attributed largely due to freedom of press, which is absolutely something to be proud of; though we have to recognise the ease at which fake news and misleading opinions can spread, such as the letter above.
    Baseless theories are so very harmful to our countries effort, and those who spread them should be ashamed at the damage they inflict on our infrastructure. We should instead listen to our scientists and work cohesively together to defeat the virus.

  2. Dear Mr. Thomas Davison: Rather than the standard “This is horrible, your conspiracy theory is a fake. Ugly, ugly, ugly”, which has become extremely boring all over the Western World, I would like you to provide plausible reasons why the Chinese biological theory is not plausible. As far as I can tell, all the following scenarios are plausible:
    Scenario 1. The coronavirus appeared in a Chinese market because the guys there were filthy and unhygienic. Plausible as virus could hop from animals to humans.
    Scenario 2. The coronavirus appeared as a result of an accident in a Chinese laboratory (say, the Wuhan Virology Institute) and then spread without the Chinese authorities knowing until it was so late. Plausible as they were working with coronavirus specimens since at least 2017, genetic engineering and systems biology are quite the rage and you will frequently find sloppy employees who are uncapable of following adequate security measures.
    Scenario 3. The coronavirus was intentionally spread by people with access to coronavirus experiments. Also quite plausible, as China politicians (as politicians everywhere) are quite ambitious and may want China to become the next hegemon. Besides, they despise Donald Trump and would do everything to ensure he will not be reelected in November (which they may well accomplish).
    So, please stop using labels such as “conspiracy theory” to discredit plausible ideas, and begin bringing to the discussion solid arguments.

  3. Dear Mr Alvarez,
    I appreciate that it is difficult to distinguish between fact and situations that seem plausible. I truly sympathise with this, as it can be overwhelming when there is so much information such as with the current Covid-19 situation.
    Having said this, we can discount the most implausible situations with basic examination of the facts. The idea that the Chinese government has cultivated and released a virus would be a poor assumption for instance. Basic examination shows that the Chinese economy has taken a severe hit, as has its relations with much of the world. The only reason that the US has done so poorly is due to its appalling treatment and prevention of the virus, rather than from outside influence.
    You seem to not quite grasp that a conspiracy theory is any baseless theory. There is no evidence to suggest that the virus was manufactured, and in fact a plethora of evidence identifying the virus in the wild (see e.g. https://jvi.asm.org/content/79/4/2001) thus it is by definition, a conspiracy theory. In fact the majority of these baseless theories are created and cultivated by anti-chinese and racist sentiment, rather than upon any scientific basis (see e.g. https://www.hrw.org/news/2020/05/12/covid-19-fueling-anti-asian-racism-and-xenophobia-worldwide).
    Please refrain from spreading harmful information that does not consider the facts, it actively harms the effort against the virus. The majority of people are more than willing to listen to the experts and the news, rather than pull random information from facebook or whatsapp.
    As a scientist, most of my time is spent finding the truth amongst fiction. Please listen to those who are doing so professionally. Scientists and reputable news outlets will give you far more accurate and truthful information than you are getting from social media.
    Best wishes and stay safe,
    Thomas Davison
