CHINA'S LIABILITY?

Whatever source I cited you'd decry so I'm not even going to bother trying.
Your source tells you that the CCP has renounced the claim which makes it an accidental rather than deliberate release while the current scientific consensus supports that claim?

Skepticism is perfectly in order, but could you at least try thinking it through?
 
"It's comin' home, it's comin' home, it's comin'..."

'The city where it all started is facing a new threat from a mutated version of the coronavirus that spread across the globe.

'The Covid-19 pandemic began in Wuhan, China in late 2019 with a handful of cases linked to what was then a mysterious new illness.

'It has now touched almost every country in the world – the only places that have not recorded a single local case are small islands and, if you believe the official word, North Korea.

'After more than a year without a single case, Wuhan is again experiencing an uptick in infections.

'China reported 55 new locally transmitted cases on Monday as the Delta variant reached more than 20 cities in a dozen provinces.

'Seven positive tests were recorded in Wuhan where state media reported the infections were among “migrant workers” and had been traced to a train station.'


 
It seems to have spread from a cluster that has been sourced to Nanjing airport a week or so ago. There were some quite severe restrictions imposed on Nanjing following that but, it seems, that they may not have been quick enough. Although vaccination rates are quite high I get the impression that 2nd doses are still lower than one would hope.
 
China has largely refused to cooperate with investigations from Western powers into the origin of the virus, refused to hand over data on 174 early Covid cases to a team at the World Health Organization and a huge database of genetic information from the Wuhan Institute of Virology was suddenly taken down in the middle of the night.

The CCP then rejected a second WHO probe into the origin of the virus last month, but a giant catalogue of genetic information from the Wuhan Institute of Virology has somehow been retrieved by the US that will enable a close study to be made and determine exactly where COVID originated...wet market or Wuhan Lab. The lab leak theory dismissed and discredited at the start of the pandemic.

Reference the bold. Whose night was it taken down in?
 
Unfortunately, China's apparent lack of transparency, and US efforts to get to the truth, provide the opportunity for headlines like this. As western democracies pride ourselves on upholding the rule of law, actions such as this, whether real or fictitious, offer easy propaganda targets to adversaries.

'A bizarre CNN story about the ongoing US intelligence investigation of Covid-19’s origins that relies on anonymous sources, and seems to make excuses for the spies coming up short, also manages to accuse the US of hacking China.'

According to what has been revealed both France and the US have sticky fingers in the Wuhan setup. The issue for me is if the legitimate side of the Bird flu research, which is what it appears to be, on the civil side was in some way directed to what the US claim to be a "gain of function" by the Military side. I am still prepared to accept that China accidentally lost control and should be prepared to pay for the financial losses to the west. Now politically that should wipe out a considerable amount of China's economic advantage that the US has been blaring about and some form of normality can return.
 
The number of toxic pestilences that have emerged from China far outweigh anything due on that one.


China is in arrears, and given their attitude, have no intention of paying anything to anyone for anything they do.

So called 'Wolf Warrior Diplomacy’... more like I’m bigger than you what are you going to do about it.

Biggest carbon polluters on the planet and do nothing.

Have just invented some Swiss scientist who refutes any possibility of a leak from the Wuhan lab, unfortunately Swiss have never heard of him.

An embarrassment of a ‘responsible' world class Government.

They seized on a social media account claiming to be a Swiss scientist. They didn't invent it.

You're a liar as well as a plagiarist.
 
I'm curious, did COVID start in China, @smartascarrots?

Oh yeah.
