China Begins Mass Deletion Of Online Research On Coronavirus Origins – NATION AND STATE

https://nationandstate.com/2020/04/11/china-begins-mass-deletion-of-online-research-on-coronavirus-origins/

A technical analysis of the cached websites indicated that the posts were published on verified university websites before they were removed.

As The Guardian’s Beijing bureau chief Lily Kuo tweeted:

“Where the coronavirus originated is becoming more and more political…”

Finally, this escalation is notable in the context of comments from now outspoken China critic Kyle Bass, who tweeted:

Secretary Xi is in trouble within China. According to my sources within, the party elite want Xi gone. The Guangdong elite (Uncle Deng’s family) are beginning to rattle the cages of change against the supposed ’emperor for life’. #XiJinping #china #ChinaLiedAndPeopleDied”

And, to be brutally frank, if China is now anxiously deleting (or banning before issuance) any research on the origins of the deadly pandemic, it appears to be pretty clear what those origins are likely to have been… no matter how many people get permanently banned from social media for mentioning such a blasphemy.

Kevin Carrico, a senior research fellow of Chinese studies at Monash University, said:

“There is a desire to a degree to deny realities that are staring at us in the face… that this is a massive pandemic that originated in a place that the Chinese government really should have cleaned up after SARS.”
