This timeline supports the thesis that the Covid-19 outbreak is a repeat of the H1N1 outbreak in 2009. If it is proven, then the US Government’s attempt to simultaneously blame China and hide its own culpability for Covid-19, combined with the FAA’s 737Max fiasco, will damage our international standing–and boost China’s–as much as the GFC did.

***

September 2008: Though the first cases of H1N1 swine flu were reported in California and Texas in late March, 2009, subsequent genetic analysis suggests that it began six months before it was first detected, in September, 2008, at the start of the ‘flu season. The CDC admits, below, that earlier Covid-19 cases went undetected, too.

May, 2018: The President Fires the entire US Pandemic Response Team and does not replace it.

April, 2019: An outbreak of severe vaping-associated lung illness is exclusively confined to the United States, despite the fact that the majority of vapers live outside the US.

July 3, 2019: The CDC halts research at Fort Detrick, citing “national security reasons” for not releasing information about its decision.

Jul 14, 2019: Chinese researcher escorted from infectious disease lab amid RCMP investigation. Public Health Agency of Canada describes it as a possible ‘policy breach,’ no risk to Canadian public. The first Chinese to discover or warn about the Covid-19 outbreak?

August, 2019: First Vaping Death Reported by Health Officials “Amid the lack of information, investigators scrambled to find shared links to the respiratory problems. Officials said earlier this week that many patients, most of whom were adolescents or young adults, had described difficulty breathing, chest pain, vomiting and fatigue,” the precise symptoms of Covid-19 infection.

October 27, 2019 At a peak of international tension and the ‘flu season in the northern hemisphere, on the eve of China’s biggest travel season, 300 American military servicemen visit Wuhan for the International Military Games.

December, 2019. A Chinese medical researcher is arrested in Boston trying to take biological samples back to China. Zheng Zaosong, of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, confessed to taking material from a lab in Boston. FBI Special Agent Kara Spice found 21 wrapped vials containing a “brown liquid” that appeared to be “biological material” (samples of post-mortem lung tissue look like ‘brown liquid’). Zheng’s roommate, also a researcher, told FBI agents that two labmates of Zheng had succeeded in getting specimens to China. China, presumably, now went on high alert.

January 202o: Malaysia’s Assistant to the Prime Minister, Matthias Chang, speculates that the US is waging biological warfare on China.

January 28, 2020: Harvard Chemistry Professor Arrested, Handcuffed, And Accused Of Lying About Ties To China. Charles Lieber, Chair of Harvard’s Department of Chemical Biology, led a Chinese research group focusing on the use of nanotechnology to identify viruses.

February 23, 2020. Chinese scientists found genomic evidence that the seafood market in Wuhan was not the source of the novel coronavirus. Their genetic data suggests the virus was introduced from elsewhere and had already circulated widely among humans in Wuhan before December 2019, probably beginning in mid- to late November.

February 27, 2020: On Taiwan TV a prominent virologist explained flow charts suggesting that the coronavirus originated in the US.

March 6, 2020: Question: How did the virus come to the United States? Answer:The first known patients in the U.S. contracted the virus while traveling in other countries or after exposure to someone who had been to China or one of the other affected areas. But now, a few cases here cannot be traced to these risk factors. This is concerning because it suggests the illness may be spreading across communities for which the source of infection is unknown, which we call community spread/transmission. Dr. Emily Landon, spokesperson, U Chicago School of Medicine.

March 9, 2020: HHS staffers often weren’t informed about coronavirus developments because they didn’t have adequate clearance. He said he was told that the matters were classified “because it had to do with China.”

March 11, 2020: White House classifies coronavirus deliberations. The meetings at HHS were held in a secure area called a “Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility,” or SCIF, usually reserved for intelligence and military operations. HHS has SCIFs because theoretically it would play a major role in biowarfare or chemical attacks.

March 12, 2020: CDC director Robert Redfield admits to a House Oversight Committee that some Americans who were diagnosed as dying from influenza tested positive for Covid-19 posthumously.

Mar 13, 2020: Chinese FM’s Lijian Zhao demands US authorities reveal what they’re hiding about the origins of Covid-19. “When did patient zero begin in the US? How many people are infected? What are the names of the hospitals? It might be the US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan. Be transparent! Make your data public! The US owes us an explanation!”

China Timeline to Mar. 15, 2020

November, 2002: After its experience with the SARS outbreak in Guangdong Province in 2002, China implemented a rapid response protocol for infectious diseases. The protocol empowered the Health Ministry to assemble professional and managerial help from across the country, established an emergency response coordinating team, prepared funding and authorization for supplies, equipment and emergency health care facilities, anticipating that existing hospitals would be overwhelmed.

July-December 2019: Chinese researchers in the USA informed China’s Health Ministry of a novel Coronavirus outbreak there, triggering a readiness alert nationwide. The WHO describes what happened next, “In the face of a previously unknown virus, China has rolled out perhaps the most ambitious, agile, and aggressive disease containment effort in history…China’s bold approach to contain the rapid spread of this new respiratory pathogen has changed the course of a rapidly escalating and deadly epidemic.”

Dec 26, 2019: Jixian Zhang detects four anomalous pneumonia infections in Wuhan and reports them to the provincial CDC the next day. The provincial authorities immediately inform the national CDC which prepares to implement the pandemic response protocols.

December 30, 2019: China’s national CDC notifies the WHO, which reports Zhang’s discovery to the world.

December 31, 2019: WHO reports Zhang’s discovery to the world.

January 7, 2020: China identifies the virus as 2019-nCov and confirms it five days later. President Xi tells officials that the country is on a ‘war footing’

January 13, 2020: China makes the first 2019-nCov test kits available.

January 25, 2020: Construction begins on a 1,000 bed intensive care hospital in Wuhan.

January 26, 2020: China extends Spring Festival holiday to contain the outbreak.

February 5, 2020: First patients moved into new 1,000 bed intensive care hospital.

March 4, 2020: February rail freight loadings rise 4.5% YOY.

March 5, 2020: Shipments to foreign JIT customers upgraded: government subsidizes upgrades from sea to rail delivery and from rail to air delivery.

March 10, 2020: Government organizes and subsidizes bus, rail and air transport for two hundred million migrant workers to return to urban jobs.

March 16, 2020: Ninety percent of businesses expected to resume full operations. All Apple stores open.

***

Postscript: Researchers have greatly advanced their understanding of viral evolution since H1N1 a decade ago and finding patient zero is now more science than art. Recently, a team of Chinese researchers claimed to demonstrate that Covid-19 was born in September, 2019. The British researchers who had discovered the earlier H1N1 date are not convinced.

    This means little because we’re talking about March 6th. At that point in time it’s not surprising to see community spread cases which can’t be traced to the country of origin (IMO).

    “Pointing to a video of CDC director Robert Redfield admitting the US had several deaths from Covid-19 before they were able to test for it, Zhao called on the American watchdog to come clean, ‘When did patient zero begin in the US?

    This is BIG, if true. It takes time for the virus to infect and kill a person so maybe the US did have a smaller outbreak before China. Whatever the case may be, we can be sure that the US will deny it. I’m noticing that non-MSM Youtube channels can’t even say “Coronavirus”, “COVID” or “COVID-19” without getting banned. Shameful.

    The Covid-19 virus has one main purpose – to justify locking down societies and limiting movement. The release of the virus is a deliberate move by the global elites to generate fear so that people will clamor to be jailed in their immediate districts. People are fearful and stupid so will accept their loss of freedom meekly. This event marks the beginning of a world wide feudal order.

    However this consideration turns out, our ability to link in real time to the dialog between evolutionary biologists, statisticians, clinicians, and pandemic victims worldwide is an evolution of the collaborative power of the Internet. Especially since most of the contributors to these pages are strangers to their fellows.

  10. A missing element of the timeline is January 16, 2020, the date of the following press release:

    Press Release by German Center for Infectious Research:
    Researchers develop first diagnostic test for novel coronavirus in China

    https://www.dzif.de/en/researchers-develop-first-diagnostic-test-novel-coronavirus-china

    Test kits were then publicly available on the following day, January 17. Before then, health authorities could not have been sure, exactly what patients with similar symptoms were suffering from.

    Since the diagnostic test was developed from the information about the genome provided by China, it is not clear whether they supplied only the data from the “tree”, or base, which according to Prof. Boyle came from the University of North Carolina, and possibly may have been developed prior to that at the Maryland lab.

    Clicking on the last link above, about evidence that the virus originated in the US, would thus merely confirm the above information while misleading readers to think that the new variant (chimera), with gain of function qualities, which was produced at the Wuhan lab and likely escaped accidentally, had also came from the US in its entirety.

    Still, the following quote quote is rather intriguing:

    Part of the proof of this assertion is that the genome varieties of the virus in Iran and Italy have been sequenced and declared to have no part of the variety that infected China and must, by definition, have originated elsewhere.

    If that were the case, but the virus prevalent in Iran and Italy still caused a positive reaction to the standard diagnostic test, this would suggest that the diagnostic test was not sufficiently specific to the virus developed in Wuhan.

    This could open the door to conjecture, that “somebody” decided to not let a good crisis, occurring in China, go to waste, as the saying goes, and intentionally released a similar virus in Iran and Italy under the cover of the initial crisis. This angle surely deserves additional investigation.

    The inclusion of the vaping deaths is a weak point in my opinion.

    Much more relevant is how bad this flu season was before anyone even heard of Corona Virus.

    Ask anyone in the medical field and they will tell you that this flu season was really bad. There were a lot of deaths in my town.

    This has me suspicious that the weaker S strain was already floating around America and infecting people many months before Wuhan.

    I suspect that this was not a biowarfare attack, but an attempt to shift the blame for another US Coronavirus outbreak (like the 2009 H1N1) onto China.

  16. Why is this article not showing on the main UNZ.com webpage?

    Are you so naive to think that the Chicoms would never do anything wrong? Or are you a paid agent of the Red Chinese government? If you want to go with conspiracy theories it’s much more likely that the Chicoms released a bioagent as a way of stopping the expanding Hong Kong protests.

  18. EA says:

    The ONE man who this virus is helping more than anyone is Benjamin Netanyahu.

    He is going to get out of his trial because of the Coronavirus.

    The trial to put Netanyahu in jail is supposed to start March 17th. All of a sudden the entire country has basically given him immunity, without officially doing so. Such a sad state. I am sure Israel and Bibi have figured out who they needed to flip to get this desire.

    Cui Bono?

    How can it be anymore clearer?

    There are only three empires.

    The American Empire and its allies.

    The Chinese Empire and its allies.

    And the Israelis. They are the hidden empire that wishes to control the entire world.

    The virus first went to China and Iran, Israeli’s “fake” enemies.

    Then it went to the US, it’s true enemy.

    Then it came to Israel so they could shut down their whole country and use their spy tech on all dissidents to kill off. They are already using their full anti-terrorist technology to track all “coronavirus” patients aka dissidents.

    China has killed off their dissidents. Israel is about to do the same.

    Will the US follow suit?

    Realize what they are trying to get you to do USA! Do not fall for their plan.

    Be your own country! Do not fall for Bibi’s plan. He is the one who is benefiting the most!

    Gantz better step up to the plate with Liberman and stop this man from staying in power!

    If Trump dies, it is none other than Benjamin Netanyahu who gave the order.

    Look at his smirking fucking face. Pure evil.

    Make no mistake, when the Israelis feel threatened, they will always crash the world to survive. That is the Israeli’s history since time began.

    Destroy the world. Survive. Thrive. Repeat. Until full control is established.

    As soon as they see their grasp loosening, they destroy the world and survive.

    Pathetic group of individuals.

    I will fully stand with Trump against Bibi and the Israeli aggression. Trump will support China and China will support Trump against Israel.

    Get some and hurrah.

    I think that the US knows, China knows, Russia knows that this was developed by Israel and the elites.

    Pirbright Institute/MIGAL (Israel) Donor Bill Gates and the Coronavirus Crime Against Humanity

    Stepping down from Microsoft Board is happening, but phony cover.

    Bill Gates is telling the Chinese of the bioweapon terrorist attack he’s had a part in on behalf of the Deep State/New World Order/Rothschild Zionist mafia based in London and Tel Aviv. Gates helped fund the creation of the weaponized coronavirus via the Pirbright Institute to help their dreams of mass population reduction and control.

    Dr. Charles Lieber of Harvard University arrested. His connection to Pirbright and MIGAL is under investigation.

    Israel’s MIGAL (Galilee Research Institute) just happens to have a vaccine ready for trials in a week or two? BS.

    Trump is locking down America, getting families together, and getting everyone’s attention as he puts an end to this mass treason and gives the world the full narrative of what has been going on.

    Now you can see that Israel is pushing China to blame the US. One empire is pushing both empires to blame the other while the hidden empire bunkers down and waits for collapse. That is whaat they have always done. This time I believe will be different. I think Russia, China, and USA will be in cahoots against the insanity of the Israelis and WW3 and collapse will be prevented.

    He is going to expose the Israelis or die trying. Get some Trump! Praying for his safety!

    Be a man Trump! Do what you born for!

    This actually makes alot of sense. working in the healthcare field, the downturn of FLU cases over the years has been attributed to the FLU vaccine. However, the downturn of FLU has caused people to not seek out the vaccine, which in turn caused FLU cases to rise. Simple complacency.

  20. Anonymous[204] • Disclaimer says:
    @Godfree Roberts

    Very good point. I’ve only read about the vaping deaths briefly and the articles were describing younger and seemingly healthier people but it’s still an interesting possibility.

  21. I would make two brief points.

    (1) Bio-weapons in today’s geopolitical climate are not meant to cause deaths. In other conceivable circumstances this might be different, but today biological pathogens are a formidable weapon in an economic war, able to do to China what a trade war could not do. The US has solid political reasons to attack China, Iran and Italy; the other countries may be merely unfortunate but irrelevant collateral damage.

    (2) An extract from an article I wrote some years ago on SARS:

    At the same time, the Hong Kong newspaper Wenweipo published an article titled, “Earliest SARS outbreak suspected in U.S.”, in which the authors wrote of AP and Reuters reports about a 45-year-old woman who became gravely ill in February of 2002 (nine months prior to the SARS outbreak in Hong Kong) with typical SARS symptoms, and who died within a day, with the entire hospital and about 80 individuals with whom she had contact all being quarantined.

    Wenweipo believed the event had been covered up by authorities and suggested this was actually the original occurrence of SARS, speculating the virus had originated in a US research lab. There were also published reports that Chinese researchers and military experts reached the same conclusions as the Russian virologists, namely that the virus was necessarily man-made and almost certainly originated in a US military lab and subsequently released into China.

    Also, a Chinese lawyer named Tong Zeng who had participated in various US genetic research programs in China, published a book in which he noted that US researchers in the 1990s had collected hundreds of thousands of samples of blood and DNA from mainland Chinese which were all sent to the US, and which could have been used in the development of biological weapons.

  22. Godfree, I have a question. From your timeline:

    “July-December 2019: Chinese researchers in the USA informed China’s Health Ministry of a novel Coronavirus outbreak there, triggering a readiness alert nationwide.”

    Can you elaborate or provide anything evidential that Chinese researchers in the US informed China of a virus outbreak in the US? I presume that is the meaning, but I’ve never seen this claim before. Please can you clarify or add anything useful? The dates? This is very important.

  24. Dear Godfree-

    Regarding the vaping deaths, we have a few friends in California who have informed us that much of the cannabis vaping oils are likely adulterated for various reasons. These are very successful, well-educated people who are long time weekend users who know what they are talking about. Apparently, they claimed to get pretty sick after using some cartridges. They gave up the cartridges (vapes) and went back to flower, but even that is also frequently contaminated (pesticides and fungicides.) It looks like simple ubiquitous human greed at work once again.

    Although the “blame/demonize China” refrain is present in the following linked WAPO story about the vaping deaths and illnesses (which concludes it is likely adulteration is to blame), it does seem that this may not be a fruitful area to interweave into the timeline, especially when so much effective and solid factual evidence is otherwise marshaled throughout. (See https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/potential-culprits-in-mystery-lung-illnesses-black-market-vaping-products/2019/09/24/cb5b708e-d98d-11e9-ac63-3016711543fe_story.html )

    As a retired name partner in a well-respected law firm, and as the former head of all civil litigation for said firm, when I had great arguments to present to a court, I would never interweave any weak arguments unless absolutely necessary to address critical issues that simply could not be avoided.

    These deaths and illnesses are easily explainable by simple human greed, as opposed to occult Covid-19. Occam’s Razor counsels exclusion until better evidence, as opposed to speculation, supports such inclusion in the timeline.

    Otherwise, we like the timeline and applaud your continuing efforts in this matter. Kudos!

    They were informed by the two researchers mentioned in the article, who escaped with post-mortem tissue samples.

    The FBI became hysterical about Chinese medical researchers almost a year ago, remember?

    They were worried that China would get physical proof that pandemics were starting in the USA but going undetected.

    Clearly the Chinese were trying to get the samples, without which they could not call the US out.

    OT but the US still gets a lot of its economy despite falling life expectancy and falling or stagnant quality of life, GDP growth was at 2% and productivity growth was at 1.5%, a lot better than countries like France, Italy, and the UK with higher life expectancies and lower income inequality. You might argue that using GDP as a measurement is suspect, but China also uses the same measurement. And China has a lower life expectancy than countries like Algeria, Colombia, Thailand, Ecuador, and Montenegro, despite having a much higher per capita GDP, unless you are saying that those countries are doctoring their figures. Basically the US stills gets very good economic performance despite quality of life issues and very high inequality, and Chinese HDI performance relative to per capita GDP is poor compared to Colombia, Armenia, and Algeria, and you would expect its HDI to be a lot higher considering its per capita GDP, as the the US, it is a third world country in some respects with a AAA economy, so it is not really something to compare to.

    Simply using a number is too simplistic. For one thing – developed countries by nature hage slower rates of growth. The average German or Japanese has a higher quality of life than the average American (education – healthcare – safety – retirement – etc.) but they have much slower growth. Most of the US growth is top heavy.

    As to China life expectancy compared to those other countries you listed. Correct – but look at what the numbers for each were 20 and 40 and 60 years ago. What gambler would bet they would still be ahead of China in 20 years? Those numbers wouldnt make sense.

    Chinese life expectancy is likely being dragged down by long working hours (12 hours a day for 6 days a week, compared to the 6 weeks of paid vacation leave that Western Europeans get) and stressful keeping up with the Jonesses debt driven lifestyle, plus awful pollution in the North China Plain.

    The pollution part in the northeast yes… Smoking all over – yes. But no – it is mainly because of the rural poor with minimal access to healthcare. No large country has improved more in life expectancy in the last 30 years. But yeah if you check Shanghai – its life expectancy is almost as high as Hong Kong and about that of Japan. It is higher than Taiwan with about the same population. Urbanization has a lot to do with life expectancy in modern times. The best healthcare is in cities. Rural people can indeed live healthier lives… They eat more natural food and they are more physically active. But if they get sick.. Then you see the disparity.

    But now that we see more young people dying, it lends support that the rash if vaping deaths from last year could have been corona virus related.
