Is the coronavirus a made-in-China pandemic?

There’s reportedly a facility in the Chinese megacity called Wuhan that’s close by the open-air market we’re told is ground-zero for a deadly coronavirus outbreak that just might have a lot to do with the disease’s provenance.

It’s called the Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory and it is supposedly one of the most secure complexes of its kind. This lab is ominously situated on a military base that U.S. and Israeli experts think is associated with an illegal Chinese biological warfare program. Potent coronavirus samples were stolen from a Canadian lab by Chinese spies last March, shipped to Wuhan and perhaps weaponized there.

Xi Jinping boasts of transforming his country with a “Made in China” initiative. If these reports prove true, his Chinese Communist Party may have made – and accidentally unleashed on its own people and the world – a pandemic of unprecedented destructiveness. 

This is Frank Gaffney.
