What is in a name? Explosive leaked emails have emerged from Dr. Shi Zhengli Chief of the Wuhan Institute of Virology also known to the media as the “Bat Woman”. Zhengli’s emails reveal that contrary to narratives from Beijing: Chinese communist officials are obsessed with saving face by changing the name of the China Virus officially named “SARS-CoV-2” and far less so about actually fighting the virus. Why? The U.S. Sun reported,
“Dr Shi – known as “Bat Woman” – and the other Chinese researchers argued the name was “truly misleading” as they felt it linked the virus to 2003 outbreak of SARS in China.”
Emails that have been revealed by US Right to Know a non-profit organization for public health, have exposed that Dr. Shi was among Chinese leaders fighting to change the name of the Coronavirus in 2019. Gary Ruskin, US Right to Know’s Executive Director, told The Sun Online:
“What is interesting about these emails is the involvement of Chinese scientists – including Shi Zhengli – in the political effort to change the name of SARS-CoV-2.
It shows their conscription into political processes.
They are engaging in an inherently political process of naming or renaming the novel coronavirus. The power to name is the power to define.”
Wuhan Emails Show Beijing’s Intense Political Pressure
The Emails from Dr. Shi dated February 13, 2019, at the beginning of the global panic revealed she was lobbying for the Chinese Communist Party’s narrative with the Coronavirus Study Group (CSG) of the International Committee on Virus Taxonomy, who were responsible for christening the virus.
Dr. Shi presented a four point proposal to the committee that was endorsed by the Chinese equivalent of the CDC’s principal investigator Wenjie Tan. She proposed renaming the virus to “”TARS-CoV” or “HARS-CoV” to indicate a “clear difference” from the SARS outbreak which is so infamously tied to China.”TARS-CoV” or “HARS-CoV” to indicate a “clear difference” from the SARS outbreak which is so infamously tied to China.” Dr. Shi and her colleagues argued that the China Virus shouldn’t have a name that “stigmatize and insult the people in Wuhan”
She wrote them,
“I am wondering if the CoV study group would consider a revision.”
“It goes without saying that the effects of the epidemic on all aspects of Chinese life are devastating, and possible irreversible.”
“Consequently, appropriately naming the virus and disease becomes a matter of importance to the Chinese people.”
Dr. Shi Zhengli reportedly went missing for months after the Wuhan China Virus emerged only to return later dutifully reciting Beijing’s talking points for the world press.
Beijing’s full-court-press didn’t work, and the name stuck John Ziebuhr, chairman of the CSG, pushed back hard on their political and public relations based concerns with something simple: science. He replied to their calls, “The suffix -2 is used as a unique identifier and indicates that SARS-Co V-2 is yet ANOTHER (but closely related) virus in this species.”
China’s Deep Coverup.
The Sun reported “Documents already revealed Beijing downplayed the bug to “protect its image”, and there have been repeated allegations that China has manipulated its death and case figures.” so this would fit Beijing’s pattern of behavior regarding the Wuhan flu.
The Chinese Communist Party has been working full-tilt for over two years now to keep the details, impact and origin of SARS-Co V-2 deeply under wraps. A new administration in Washington that seems more interested in appeasing Xi Jinping, plays directly into their hands in this regard. They know that the Biden-Harris regime is on-board with their agenda. Until a government comes to power that will hold Beijing’s Communists accountable, it will likely be decades before we know the truth… if we ever do.
