(Tea Party PAC) – Well, well, well.
A whole lot of countries just decided they’re done with Communist China’s garbage.
The majority of nations around the world have agreed to launch an international investigation into the origins of the novel coronavirus which emerged in Wuhan, China late last year.
According to Australia’s Daily Telegraph, over 100 nations announced at the World Health Assembly that they support an international investigation into China.
While the draft resolution does not specifically name China has the nation around which the investigation will focus, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out which country is most widely assumed to be responsible.
All 54 members from Africa and all the countries which belong to the European Union also joined as co-sponsors of the investigation.
Also included are Albania, Australia, Bangladesh, Belarus, Bhutan, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Djibouti, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Guyana, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Japan, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Maldives, Mexico, Monaco, Montenegro, New Zealand, North Macedonia, Norway, Paraguay, Peru, Qatar, Republic of Korea, Republic of Moldova, Russian Federation, San Marino, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine, the United Kingdom of Great Britain, and Northern Ireland.
Interestingly, the US did not appear to support the investigation. But this most likely means that officials here at home would either like more oversight over the investigation, or a closer focus on China and the role the one-party state played in the dissemination of the virus around the world.
From day one, US Senator for Arkansas, Tom Cotton (R) has been one of the loudest critics of China’s handling of the virus and hasn’t stopped trying to expose their corruption.
“So only after China fessed up to the WHO on December 31 did the world know what was happening. Yet, still they continued to deny that it was spreading from person to person into mid-January. That allowed millions of people to leave Wuhan,” Cotton told Fox News last month.
“And then, finally, China continued to pressure the WHO and other countries not to stop international travel from China. That meant that hundreds of thousands of persons left China after this virus was spread far outside of Wuhan, which allowed the virus to escape China’s borders and get to the United States and get to Europe and get to essentially every country in the world.
“I believe that was a deliberate and conscious choice by the Chinese communist leadership, because they didn’t want to see their relative power and standing in the world decline because this virus was contained within China,” Cotton continued.
“Again, it was obvious by mid-December to Chinese authorities that this virus was highly contagious and very deadly.”
“They also knew that, once this virus began to spread outside of Wuhan, it would wreak economic havoc throughout China. And, in fact, China had the first contraction in the first quarter of this year since the cultural revolution ended in the 1970s,” Cotton asserted.
“I believe the Chinese communist leaders, when they were aware of those facts by mid-January, made the conscious decision not to explain to the world that it was transmissible between humans, not to shut down travel, not to ask for American or other kind of international scientific help, but to allow this virus to escape their borders, because if they were going to suffer an economic contraction, they were not going to allow the world to continue to prosper, and China be the only country whose economy was declining.”
“They might see an absolute decline in their economy, but they refused to see a relative decline, especially relative to the United States,” the senator concluded.
“If China had been up-front about this virus from the very beginning, some studies suggest that they could have reduced the number of cases in China itself by 65 to even 90 percent.”
