Not the Wuhan Flu, but the Aussie Flu! By James Reed

Even though Wuhan has wet markets where all sorts of healthy interactions between humans and exotic animals occur, China is now saying, having fingered India, which went nowhere, its latest enemy to punish, Australia, gave the world the Wuhan flu. Get a load of this one crew:

“Beijing has claimed that coronavirus may have spawned outside China and travelled to a wet market in Wuhan via frozen food exports from countries including Australia.

An article in the government-controlled Global Times newspaper on Sunday said the idea the virus was imported into the Huanan wet market last year 'cannot be ruled out' - although it admitted there is no supporting evidence.

Beijing has been pushing the theory since October when experts tracing an outbreak in Qingdao city found living coronavirus samples on packets of imported frozen cod.  

Western scientists say the theory is 'highly speculative' and believe it is much more likely that the disease first passed from animals to humans in the Wuhan area. 

Coronavirus cases were first reported in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December last year before spreading rapidly around the world, causing 1.5million deaths and wrecking economies.

The latest Global Times report comes after Beijing-Canberra relations hit rock bottom when China slapped a 212 per cent tariff on Aussie wine and mocked Australian soldiers with fake propaganda images referencing war crimes allegations. 

The article said cold-chain products were imported into Wuhan from several countries including 'meat products from Brazil and Germany... Australian steak, Chilean cherries and Ecuadorian seafood.'

The Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention said in October that lab tests confirmed Covid-19 could survive for a long time on frozen food packaging.

Yang Zhanqiu, a pathology expert at Wuhan University, told the Global Times the discovery made it possible that the virus was initially imported into China.

'The idea never crossed our minds before. But now it seems plausible that the virus may have been imported to Wuhan via imported cold-chain products,' he said. 

The World Health Organisation has said the virus can 'survive a long time under cold storage conditions' but examples are 'rare and isolated.'” 

This is what it is like to live under the Chinese New World Order, and it is punishment time for Australia. China, will walk away from its responsibility for the spread of the Wuhan flu, even if they were right that it came from an Australian steak sandwich, or whatever.
