Tying It All Together: China, Dr. Fauci, French Company Sanofi Pasteur, George Soros and the Gates Foundation — The Gateway Pundit


Truth2Freedom's Blog

Links between Dr. Tony Fauci, China, French company Sanofi Pasteur, George Soros and the Gates Foundation are old and deep.  The China coronavirus ties them all together.

In late December 2019, Taiwan sent an email to the World Health Organization (WHO) stating that a unique ‘atypical pneumonia’ was identified in China and asking the WHO to provide any information they might have regarding the pneumonia:

At exactly the same, and perhaps in response to Taiwan’s notice, Chinese Health officials notified the WHO of the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan:

Chinese health officials informed the World Health Organization about the new virus on Dec. 31. By Jan. 8, it had been identified as a new coronavirus, a large family that causes the common cold and more serious illnesses including SARS, which also began in China. By Jan. 12, Chinese scientists had sequenced the virus’ genetic makeup and shared it with WHO, drawing…

Assault on Hydroxychloroquine


Iowa Climate Science Education

My article Pseudo-Science behind the Assault on Hydroxychloroquine has been published in WUWT. Some points from it:

  • Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ)-based treatments are effective for COVID-19, unless started too late.
  • There are a couple of borderline fraudulent pre-prints, trying to cast doubt on that, and they are endlessly cited in the media. Then there are a couple of serious studies, which are misinterpreted not only by the media, but by NIH and FDA as well
  • Severe COVID-19 frequently causes cardiac effects, including heart arrhythmia. This is not a fault of HCQ.
  • Millions of people regularly take drugs causing QTc prolongation, which might increase risk of heart arrhythmia and even cardiac in for COVID-19 patients with other risk factors.

To be effective, Hydroxychloroquine + Zinc/Azithromycin treatment should start as soon as possible when COVID-19 symptoms appear. This is based on the CDC advice on other antiviral drugs‘ use against common flu: “Studies show that flu antiviral drugs work best for treatment when they are started within two days of getting sick.” The window of opportunity might be even shorter for HCQ.

The states that made it difficult and time consuming to obtain HCQ made the treatment less effective.

Fauci-touted Remdisivir is good for nothing. “Remdesivir is not yet licensed or approved anywhere globally and has not been demonstrated to be safe or effective for any use” – from Drugs.com.  The number of people that can be treated with it is close to 0. This is why it received the orphan drug status.  Also, it is very expensive to manufacture. Development of Remdesivir started in 2009, and it is an ultimate ObamaDrug: useless, expensive, and promoted by fraudd and abuse of power.

21 Million Fewer Cellphone Users in China May Suggest a High CCP Virus Death Toll


By Nicole Hao March 22, 2020 Updated: April 2, 2020

The number of Chinese cellphone users dropped by 21 million in the past three months, Beijing authorities announced on March 19. Deaths due to the CCP virus may have contributed to the high number of account closings.

Cellphones are an indispensable part of life in China.

“The digitization level is very high in China. People can’t survive without a cellphone,” Tang Jingyuan, a U.S.-based China affairs commentator, told The Epoch Times on March 21. “Dealing with the government for pensions and social security, buying train tickets, shopping … no matter what people want to do, they are required to use cellphones.

“The Chinese regime requires all Chinese to use their cellphones to generate a health code. Only with a green health code are Chinese allowed to move in China now. It’s impossible for a person to cancel his cellphone.”

China introduced mandatory facial scans on Dec. 1, 2019, to confirm the identity of the person who registered the phone. As early as Sept. 1, 2010, China required all cellphone users to register phones with their real identification, by which the state can control people’s speech via its large-scale monitoring system.

Furthermore, Chinese people’s bank accounts and social security accounts are bundled with their cellphone plans; apps on Chinese phones check SIM cards against the state’s database to make sure the number belongs to the user.

Beijing first launched cellphone-based health codes on March 10. All people in China must install a cellphone app and register their personal health information. Then the app can generate a QR code, which appears in three colors, to classify the user’s health level. Red means the person has an infectious disease, yellow means the person might have one, and green means the person doesn’t.

Beijing claimed that the health codes are intended to prevent the spread of the CCP virus, commonly known as novel coronavirus.

21 Million Cellphone Users

China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) announced on March 19 the number of phone users in each province in February. Compared with the previous announcement, which was released on Dec. 18, 2019, for November 2019 data, both cellphone and landline users dropped dramatically. In the same period the year before, the number of users increased.

The number of cellphone users decreased from 1.600957 billion to 1.579927 billion, a drop of 21.03 million. The number of landline users decreased from 190.83 million to 189.99 million, a drop of 840,000.

In the previous February, the number increased. According to MIIT, the number of cellphone users increased in February 2019 from 1.5591 billion to 1.5835 billion, which is 24.37 million more. The number of landline users increased from 183.477 million to 190.118 million, which is 6.641 million more.

According to China’s National Bureau of Statistics, the country’s population at the end of 2019 was 4.67 million larger than in 2018, reaching 1.40005 billion.

The 2020 decrease in landline users may be due to the nationwide quarantine in February, during which small businesses were shut down. But the decrease in cellphone users can’t be explained in this way.

According to the operation data of all three Chinese cellphone carriers, cellphone accounts increased in December 2019 but dropped steeply in 2020.

China Mobile is the largest carrier, holding about 60 percent of the Chinese cellphone market. It reported that it gained 3.732 million more accounts in December 2019, but lost 0.862 million in January 2020 and 7.254 million in February 2020.

China Mobile’s performance in the same months in 2019 was markedly different; it gained 2.411 million more accounts in January 2019 and 1.091 million more in February 2019.

China Telecom is the second-largest carrier, holding about 21 percent of the market. It gained 1.18 million users in December 2019, but lost 0.43 million users in January 2020 and 5.6 million users in February 2020.

In 2019, it gained 4.26 million in January and 2.96 million in February.

China Unicom, which hasn’t yet published the data for February, shares the same experience as the other two telecoms in January 2020 and in early 2019. The company lost 1.186 million users in January 2020, but gained 1.962 million users in February 2019 and 2.763 million users in January 2019.

China allows each adult to apply for at most five cellphone numbers. Since Feb. 10, the majority of Chinese students have taken online classes with a cellphone number due to their schools being ordered to stay closed. These students’ accounts are under their parents’ names, which means some parents needed to open a new cellphone account in February.

Analyzing the Numbers

The big question is whether the dramatic drop in cellphone accounts reflects the account closings of those who have died due to the CCP virus.

“It’s possible that some migrant workers had two cellphone numbers before. One is from their hometown, and the other is from the city they work in. In February, they might close the number in the city they work in because they couldn’t go there,” Tang said. Typically, migrant workers would have gone to their home city for the Chinese New Year in January, and then travel restrictions would have prevented them from returning to the city where they held a job.

However, because there is a basic monthly fee to hold a cellphone account in China, the majority of migrant workers—the lowest income group—are likely to only have one cellphone account.

China had 288.36 million migrant workers as of April 2019, according to the Chinese National Bureau of Statistics.

On March 17, Meng Wei, spokesman of China’s National Development and Reform Commission, said at a monthly press conference in Beijing that except for Hubei, all provinces reported that more than 90 percent of their businesses resumed operations. In Zhejiang, Shanghai, Jiangsu, Shandong, Guangxi, and Chongqing, almost all businesses resumed production.

If both the number of migrant workers and the level of employment are accurate, more than 90 percent of migrant workers have gone back to work.

The economic dislocation caused by shutdowns in China may have also led some people who have an extra cellphone to cancel it. With business poor or stopped, they may not want to carry the extra expense.

“At present, we don’t know the details of the data. If only 10 percent of the cellphone accounts were closed because the users died because of the CCP virus, the death toll would be 2 million,” Tang said.

On March 25, a high official within MIIT, Han Xia, addressed the data point at a daily press conference.

He claimed that the drop in cell phone accounts was partly due to businesses shutting down in February to comply with quarantine policies. These businesses closed their spare phone accounts when their operations were halted, he said.

In addition, because telecom companies also closed down their physical stores during country-wide lockdowns, people were not able to open new accounts, Han said.

The reported death toll in China doesn’t line up with what can otherwise be determined about the situation there.

A comparison with the situation in Italy also suggests the Chinese death toll is significantly under-reported. Italy adopted similar measures to those used by the Chinese regime. The CCP virus death toll in Italy of 4,825 translates to a death rate of 9 percent. In China, where a much larger population was exposed to the virus, the reported death toll of 3,265 translated to a death rate of only 4 percent, less than half that reported in Italy.

Activities in the outbreak epicenter of Hubei Province seem to contradict the reported death toll in China. The seven funeral homes in the city of Wuhan were reported to be burning bodies 24 hours a day, seven days a week in late January. Hubei Province has used 40 mobile cremators, each capable of burning five tons of medical waste and bodies a day, since Feb. 16.

Lacking data, the real death toll in China is a mystery. The cancellation of 21 million cellphones provides a data point that suggests the real number may be far higher than the official number.

The Epoch Times refers to the novel coronavirus, which causes the disease COVID-19, as the CCP virus because the Chinese Communist Party’s coverup and mismanagement allowed the virus to spread throughout China and create a global pandemic.

Silenced: Stories of Wuhan Citizens Suppressed for Speaking the Truth About the Covid-19

The Epoch Times

By Cathy He and Eva Fu March 28, 2020 Updated: April 1, 2020

Since last December, the Chinese regime has muzzled citizens who have sought to reveal the true situation of the CCP Virus outbreak that originated in the central Chinese city of Wuhan.

Those suppressed have included whistleblower doctors, citizen journalists, scholars, and business people.

Below are some of their stories.

The Epoch Times refers to the novel coronavirus, which causes the disease COVID-19, as the CCP virus because the Chinese Communist Party’s coverup and mismanagement allowed the virus to spread throughout China and create a global pandemic.

Whistleblower Doctors

Li Wenliang

Li Wenliang, a 34-year-old ophthalmologist at the Wuhan Central Hospital, was among the first people to publicize information about the outbreak in Wuhan. 

“Seven ‘SARS-like’ cases from the Huanan seafood market have been confirmed,” he wrote on Chinese social media app WeChat, in a chat group with hundreds of his former medical school classmates. He attached a screenshot of a diagnosis report.  

That was Dec. 30, 2019, a day before Wuhan health officials acknowledged that there was a mysterious viral pneumonia outbreak.

Despite Li’s reminder to not “spread it externally,” screenshots of the conversation showing his full name quickly proliferated on the internet. On Jan. 3, police reprimanded him along with seven other medical professionals for spreading “rumors” online. 

The police statement said he had violated the law. 

“The public security department hopes you can proactively cooperate with our work, listen to the urging of the police, and stop illegal activities from now. Can you achieve that?” He wrote “yes.”   

“Don’t go against the authorities, don’t wear masks, don’t make careless remarks,” hospital colleague Zhao Chen recalled a department director as saying, after Li was summoned by police. Zhao told state media in a since-deleted interview that the hospital originally planned to fire Li.

Days later, Li contracted the virus while operating on an asymptomatic patient for glaucoma. He died on Feb. 7, leaving behind a pregnant wife and a young son. Shaken by his death, Chinese netizens held vigils in mourning and began a wider call for free speech. 

At least 200 health workers at Li’s hospital have contracted the virus. Three of Li’s colleagues have died.

On March 19, Wuhan police withdrew the statement about Li and issued an apology, saying they will “carefully draw a lesson” from the incident.     

Ai Fen

Ai Fen, an emergency surgeon at the hospital, later revealed that she was the “whistle provider” who gave the diagnosis report to Li. Realizing that the virus could be contagious, she required everyone in the emergency department to wear masks. 

Police didn’t go after Ai, but she received an “unprecedented, very harsh admonition” from her superiors. 

“Many, many times, I thought how nice it would be if we could turn back the clock,” she told Chinese magazine Portrait, adding that she regretted not telling more doctors about the danger.

“If I knew what it would be like today, no matter if I got criticized or not, I would have spread it all around,” she said. 

“Someone has to stand up and tell the truth. … There has to be different voices in this world, right?”

Citizen Reporters

Fang Bin

Fang Bin, a Wuhan clothes salesman, began filming his trips to hospitals around the locked-down city and posting the videos online in late January. The scenes showed long lines outside hospitals, patients clinging to life, and distraught family members.

In one video that went viral, Fang counts eight body bags in a van parked outside a hospital. “So many dead,” he says with a sigh. “This is too many.”  Fang then walks into a room in the hospital, where doctors are seen working around a patient who had apparently just died.

“Who is he?” Fang asks the man.

“My father,” the man cries. 

“He’s gone,” Fang says, after speaking to the doctors.

That evening, around half a dozen masked men in hazmat suits knocked on his door, demanding to take his temperature. Fang, who recorded the incident, said his temperature was normal and asked them to come back with an inspection warrant. The men forced their way into his house, confiscated his electronic devices, and took him to a police station. There, police questioned him about his videos, Fang later recounted.

Less than two weeks later, Fang went missing. His friends told The Epoch Times that Fang had been detained.

Chen Qiushi

Chen Qiushi, a 34-year-old lawyer-turned-citizen-journalist from eastern China, arrived in Wuhan on Jan. 24, a day after the city was placed under lockdown. Armed with a smartphone, he said he wanted to document stories about the city’s residents. 

“What sort of a journalist are you if you don’t dare rush to the frontlines?” he said in his first video in Wuhan, filmed with a selfie stick, from the railway station where he had just disembarked. 

In just over two weeks, he published more than 100 posts on his YouTube and Twitter accounts—both platforms are banned in China—that drew millions of views. He filmed interviews with locals who had lost loved ones, patients lying on temporary beds lining hospital hallways, and, according to Chen, a body left under a blanket outside an emergency ward. 

In one hospital, a woman in a protective mask holds up the body of a relative in a wheelchair, whose head is seen drooping downward.  

“What’s wrong with him?” Chen asked the woman.

“He has already passed,” she said.

The work took a toll on Chen. 

“I’m scared. In front of me is the virus. Behind me is China’s legal and administrative power,” he said in an emotional video, recorded in his hotel room on Jan. 30. 

Authorities have harassed his parents, who live in eastern China, probing for his location, Chen said. Then, he said through tears, while pointing at the camera: “I’m not afraid of dying. Why should I be afraid of you, Communist Party?”

On Feb. 7, his mother, in a video shared on his Twitter account, said Chen had gone missing the day before.

Chen’s friend Xu Xiaodong, a prominent mixed martial arts fighter, later said in a YouTube video that Chen had been forcibly quarantined, but didn’t show signs of symptoms.

Li Zehua

Li Zehua, a former anchor for Chinese state broadcaster CCTV, was the third video blogger arrested in the outbreak epicenter of Wuhan. 

“I don’t want to shut my eyes and ears. … I’m doing this so that more young people like me can stand up,” Li, 25, said in a passionate speech live-streamed on YouTube, before police entered the hotel and presumably detained him. 

Li arrived alone in Wuhan by train on Feb. 12, tracing the steps of Chen Qiushi and Fang Bin, who had been arrested by local police. It was “not by coincidence”—he said in his first YouTube video—that the first hotel he checked in was right next to where Chen had stayed. 

Over the two weeks, before the police got him, he visited the Baibuting residential compound, where many became infected after attending a large-scale banquet, interviewed a funeral home worker, and went to a local train station where migrant workers were said to be stranded. 

On his way back from visiting a local virology lab, however, he realized he was being chased. 

“I’m driving really fast. … Please help me,” he said breathlessly from under a mask.

Hours later, plainclothes police knocked on his hotel door. 

He at first refused to let them in. He turned his camera on, and began alluding to the student-led Tiananmen pro-democracy protests in 1989, which came to a bloody end after Beijing deployed tanks and guns. Li lamented the ignorance of Chinese youth to recent history, the protests being a heavily censored topic in China.

“I feel that it’s unlikely that I will not be taken away and quarantined. But I want to make this clear: I am not ashamed to face myself, nor my parents, the Communication University of China where I graduated from … and this country,” he said shortly before he opened the door and let the police in. The police confiscated his phone and laptop, and cut off the signal.

Ren Zhiqiang

Dubbed by Chinese media as “the cannon” for his fierce, unreserved criticism, 69-year-old Chinese real estate tycoon Ren Zhiqiang went missing days after he took aim at the Beijing regime. 

In a scathing article published online in early March, he criticized authorities for their handling of the outbreak and the censorship of internet information.

“This outbreak of the Wuhan pneumonia has verified the reality: when all media ‘take on the surname of the Party,’ the people are abandoned,” he wrote.

“Without media to represent people’s interests and report on the truth, people are left to the harms of both the virus and a seriously diseased system.”

Ren criticized the Chinese Communist Party for praising its achievements during a February teleconference with top leaders.

“The truth as seen from the outbreak is that the Party is defending its own interests,” he said. 

“There was no investigation into the causes of the outbreak, no one reflecting and taking on the responsibility. Instead, they attempt to cover up the truth with all kinds of grand accomplishments.” 

On March 12, Ren became incommunicado. 

He’s not the only one recently punished for criticizing the authorities’ outbreak response. Xu Zhangrun, a legal scholar at the prestigious Tsinghua University, was placed under house arrest after he published an article, titled “Angry People Are No Longer Afraid,” in early February, denouncing the regime’s hypocrisy. 

“It is true that the present level of popular fury due to the handling of the epidemic is volcanic; people thus enraged may, in the end, also cast aside their fears,” he wrote.
