Bannon: Chinese defectors condemn China’s handling of COVID-19

 

Steve Bannon has told media that scientists from the Wuhan Institute of Virology have defected to the West and are blowing the whistle on the Chinese government’s role in starting the coronavirus pandemic. So far, over half a million people have died of the virus worldwide.

Bannon told the Daily Mail that “People are going to be shocked” and that the sources were providing evidence that the virus emerged from the Wuhan lab, not from the nearby seafood market as China’s communist leaders claim.

Virus came from lab, not from bats

Bannon went on, referring to western intelligence services, “I think that they have electronic intelligence, and that they have done a full inventory of who has provided access to that lab. I think they have very compelling evidence. And there have also been defectors. People around these labs have been leaving China and Hong Kong since mid-February.” Bannon suggested that US intelligence, “along with MI5 and MI6 are trying to build a very thorough legal case, which may take a long time. It’s not like James Bond.”

Bannon noted of the Wuhan lab that “The thing was built with French help, so don’t think that there aren’t some monitoring devices in there. I think what you are going to find out is that these guys were doing experiments which they weren’t fully authorized or knew what they were doing and that somehow, either through an inadvertent mistake, or on a lab technician, one of these things got out. It’s not that hard for these viruses to get out. That is why these labs are so dangerous.”

According to Bannon, “You essentially had a biological Chernobyl in Wuhan, but the center of gravity, the Ground Zero, was around the Wuhan lab, in terms of the casualty rates. And like Chernobyl, you also had the cover-up – the state apparatus reports to itself and just protects itself.”

China pursued its interests while letting people die

 

Bannon argues that “Regardless of whether it came out of the market or the Wuhan lab, the Chinese Communist party’s subsequent decisions hold them guilty of pre-meditated murder. We know this because Taiwan formally informed the WHO on December 31 that there was some sort of epidemic coming out of Hubei province. The CDC in Beijing was informed on January 2 or 3, and they decided to withhold that information and then sign a trade deal.” Wuhan is the capital of Hubei province. China signed a trade deal with the US on January 15.

Bannon continued, “If they had been straightforward and truthful in the last week of December, 95 per cent of the lives lost and the economic carnage would have been contained. That is the tragedy here. They used the time to scoop up all the world’s personal protective equipment. This is a murderous dictatorship. The blood is on the hands of the world’s corporations – the investment banks, the hedge funds and the pension funds – and it is time to start calling it out before it leads to the destruction of the West,”

Bannon emphasized that “We are in the most extraordinary crisis in modern American history, more than Vietnam, the Cold War, even the Second World War. A global pandemic and an economic inferno. I have no faith in the WHO, the leadership should face criminal charges and be shut down.”
