The world versus China on Covid-19!

Antarctica. A better place for viral research.

It is a fact that some Chinese scientists and the government of China showed an incredible amount of naivety when they elected to have, not one but two, level 4 bio-research labs in a very populous part of the Chinese mainland. Wuhan is the capital of Hubei Province in the People’s Republic of China. It is the largest city in Hubei and the most populous city in Central China at just over 11 million.

Adding insult to injury, the two labs were situated only a few miles from a wet market. A market that is packed with all sorts of live animals, birds, fish and even bats. (You know, the sort of bats that are known to carry the SARS virus, as in various strains of the coronavirus… such as the Covid-19 disease).

Way back when, I hung out with a group of American born Chinese, while I attended Southern Illinois University in the early 70’s. Frank Chin was my neighbor in a duplex I lived in off campus. I believe that he was pretty typical of just about everyone I’ve ever met of his race. Energetic, very intelligent and precise. Not the sort of individual or mentality that would be carelessly slinging viral particles around in a lab that was literally drowning in a sea of humanity…

At best, the release of the SARS-CoV-2 viral particles was insanely sloppy. At worst, it was fully intentional. Either way, I believe that there are grounds for the world courts to bring some form of charges for the deaths of over a million souls and counting. I’d really like to see that happen…Perhaps, just as it took that second plane crashing in to World Trade building 2, everyone might finally understand the potential for terrorist and societal de-stabilization that might be involved here.

The truth is, we all live in a very dangerous and a volatile world. At the very least, there might be developed mutual agreement among all the developed nations, that these sorts of labs need to be relocated in places where few humans or animals are present… Perhaps, somewhere in the antarctic, would be a good choice.
