On Jan. 14, a team of experts from the World Health Organization was finally allowed to travel to Wuhan and investigate the origin of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus. The announcement issued by the National Health Commission on Jan. 11 contained only a short sentence. It did not mention the length of the trip, nor specified a detailed itinerary. This trip takes place more than a year after the virus first emerged. It has since spread to 191 countries and regions.
I think it is unlikely.
First, tracing the virus origin and tracing who’s responsible for its global spread are closely linked.
If Wuhan is found to be the source of the global pandemic, but the CCP allowed virus carriers to fly from Wuhan to other parts of the world—causing at least 93 million infections and over 2 million deaths to date—the CCP will be held accountable. This is something the CCP is absolutely unwilling to face.
On May 19, 2020, under strong pressure from the international community, the World Health Assembly passed a resolution to investigate the source of the virus. However, for the WHO experts to go to Wuhan, the CCP dragged its feet again and again for more than 7 months. Why did it take so long? Some experts believe that it is to clean up all the evidence at the scene of the virus outbreak.
Since the outbreak in 2020, the U.S. Health and Human Services Department repeatedly offered to send experts to China, but was rejected time and time again. In the end, China only agreed that the U.S. experts would go to China with the WHO expert team. In February 2020, after a 9-day trip, Canadian Bruce Aylward, the team leader of the WHO China Joint Mission, was asked by reporters in Geneva why he did not go through quarantine after visiting Wuhan. His answer accidentally revealed the fact that he had not been to any “dirty areas” of the Wuhan hospital. In other words, the expert group only went where the CCP allowed and anything they saw and heard was carefully arranged.
Also, the CCP will silence all relevant personnel. Yan Limeng, a virologist at the University of Hong Kong School of Public Health fled to the United States to reveal the truths about the CCP virus. Officials from the Ministry of National Security went to her hometown of Qingdao to harass her family. She said that since mid-May, the CCP began to attack her on the internet, spread rumors, and destroy her reputation. The CCP set up a fake Facebook account with her name and resume, she alleged. The CCP lied about her being kidnapped in the United States, and claimed that she was lying and mentally ill. Yan’s mother was subsequently arrested.
The CCP has brutally clamped down on those Chinese citizens who requested to investigate the source of the virus and hold leaders accountable. For example, Ren Zhiqiang, former business tycoon and “red princeling,” was sentenced to 18 years for his outspoken criticism of the CCP; Zhang Zhan, a citizen journalist who went to Wuhan to investigate the epidemic, was sentenced to four years in prison; and citizen journalist Fang Bin has disappeared, with many suspecting that he has been detained by authorities.
The CCP has repeatedly retaliated against Australia, which proposed an independent investigation into the source of the virus. The Chinese regime has banned imports of Australian barley, imposed tariffs of 107.1 to 212.1 percent on Australian wine, blacklisted six Australian beef suppliers, and placed other restrictions on imports of Australian coal, cotton, and lobster.
The CCP continues to blame other countries on the source of the virus. On March 12, 2020, Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian posted a tweet claiming, without evidence, that the virus was brought into Wuhan by the U.S. army. After that, the “blaming” wars commenced. Chinese state media have claimed, on different occasions, that the virus originated in Italy, Spain, Germany, France, India, Bangladesh, Australia, Italy, Russia, Greece, and Czech Republic.
Since the Australian government proposed in April last year that a global independent investigation into the source of the virus must be conducted, the international community has begun the research.
In early July last year, the Independent Panel for Pandemic Preparedness and Response was set up with the former Prime Minister of New Zealand Helen Clark and the former President of Liberia Ellen Johnson Sirleaf serving as co-chairs.

The CCP will definitely do everything possible to conceal the truth about the source of the virus – deceit is in its nature. But nothing can be kept hidden forever. The truth will eventually come to light.
