Canada has launched an investigation into China’s Biological Espionage. Bio-warfare experts question why Canada was sending lethal viruses to China.
In a table-top pandemic exercise at Johns Hopkins University last year, a pathogen based on the emerging Nipah virus was released by fictional extremists, killing 150 million people.
A less apocalyptic scenario mapped out by a blue-ribbon U.S. panel envisioned Nipah being dispersed by terrorists and claiming over 6,000 American lives.
Scientists from Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory (NML) have also said the highly lethal bug is a potential bio-weapon.
But this March that same lab shipped samples of the henipavirus family and of Ebola to China, which has long been suspected of running a secretive biological warfare program.
China strongly denies it makes germ weapons, and Canadian officials say the shipment was part of its efforts to support public-health research worldwide. Sharing of such samples internationally is relatively standard practice.
But some experts are raising questions about the March transfer, which appears to be at the centre of a shadowy RCMP investigation and dismissal of a top scientist at the Winnipeg-based NML.
“I would say this Canadian ‘contribution’ might likely be counterproductive,” said Dany Shoham, a biological and chemical warfare expert at Israel’s Bar-Ilan University. “I think the Chinese activities … are highly suspicious, in terms of exploring (at least) those viruses as BW agents. “
James Giordano, a neurology professor at Georgetown University and senior fellow in biowarfare at the U.S. Special Operations Command, said it’s worrisome on a few fronts.
China’s growing investment in bio-science, looser ethics around gene-editing and other cutting-edge technology and integration between government and academia raise the spectre of such pathogens being weaponized, he said.
That could mean an offensive agent, or a modified germ let loose by proxies, for which only China has the treatment or vaccine, said Giordano, co-head of Georgetown’s Brain Science and Global Law and Policy Program.
“This is not warfare, per se,” he said. “But what it’s doing is leveraging the capability to act as global saviour, which then creates various levels of macro and micro economic and bio-power dependencies.”
Asked if the possibility of the Canadian germs being diverted into a Chinese bio weapons program is connected to other upheaval at the microbiology lab, Public Health Agency of Canada spokeswoman Anna Maddison said this week the agency “continues to look into the administrative matter.”
The agency divulged last week that it sent samples of Ebola and henipavirus — which includes Nipah and the related Hendra — to China in March. It was meant for virus research, part of the agency’s mission to back international public-health research, a spokesman said.
Last month, an acclaimed NML scientist — Xiangguo Qiu — was reportedly escorted out of the lab along with her husband, another biologist, and members of her research team. The agency said it was investigating an “administrative issue,” and had referred a possible policy breach to the RCMP. Little more has been said about the affair.
China has been a signatory to the Biological Weapons Convention since 1984, and has repeatedly insisted it is abiding by the treaty that bans developing bio-weapons.
Though no details have appeared in the open literature, China is “commonly considered to have an active biological warfare program,” says the Federation of American Scientists. An official with the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defence charged last month China is the world leader in toxin “threats.”
In a 2015 academic paper, Shoham – of Bar-Ilan’s Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies – asserts that more than 40 Chinese facilities are involved in bio-weapon production.
China’s Academy of Military Medical Sciences actually developed an Ebola drug – called JK-05 — but little has been divulged about it or the defence facility’s possession of the virus, prompting speculation its Ebola cells are part of China’s bio-warfare arsenal, Shoham told the National Post.

Zero Hedge reports that the virus involved in the current coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China was stolen from Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory (NML) in Winnipeg by Chinese agents.
Last July, Dr. Xiangguo Qiu, an advanced scientist who was the head of the Vaccine Development and Antiviral Therapies Section at NML was forcibly ejected from the facility, along with her husband, Dr. Keding Cheng another biologist.
This was following a 4-month investigation into an unauthorized shipment of lethal viruses to China. Questions still remain as to whether previous shipments to China of other viruses took place prior to 2018.
Over the school year 2017-18, Dr. Xiangguo Qiu had made at least five trips to the Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory, which is housed at the military facility linked to China’s Biological Warfare Program.
In 2018, it became the first lab in China designed to meet the highest biohazard level of biosafety-level-4 (BSL-4) and it was actively researching coronaviruses like SARS. It is located just 20 miles away from the Huanan Seafood Market at the epicenter of the Coronavirus outbreak.
Dr. Qiu had previously been studying post-exposure immunotherapy for two Ebola viruses at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in conjunction with the US Defense Threat Reduction Agency. The CDC classifies Ebola as a “category A” bioterrorism agent.
China’s interest in biology as an emerging domain of warfare, its commitment to biotech dominance and looser ethics around CRISPR-Cas gene-editing has raised concerns that such pathogens are being weaponized. Chinese military strategists are known to talk about potential “genetic weapons” and the possibility of a “bloodless victory.”
Meanwhile, The Lancet science journal has just published a Chinese government-funded study, based on 41 people from the first wave of infections in Wuhan, China. Among these patients, the Wuhan pneumonia coronavirus had a whopping infection rate of 83% and a fatality rate of 15%, with an an incubation period of up to 8 days, before patients show any symptoms.
Such numbers are almost unheard-of and if they hold true, the virus will have the potential to claim the lives of hundreds of millions of people. However, the sample of only 41 patients is small and hopefully not representative.
On the X22 Report and in this video by the Atlantis Report, there is an entirely different rendering of this story. They say that the central banker-controlled Deep State is causing this pandemic to intentionally disrupt the global economy, in order to hide the collapse of their Fiat Ponzi scheme.
The World War III event that they had scheduled for Hillary and which they failed to trick Trump into pursuing is not happening, so they need another way to plunge the global workforce into chaos and something on which they can blame for the failure of their debt-based financial system.
“…………..ABC news reported that the SARS “Mystery Virus” was possibly “a Chinese bio-weapon that accidentally escaped the laboratory”. Nice of ABC to notice, but their story, if true, would be the first example of a nation creating and releasing a race-specific biological weapon designed to attack exclusively itself…………….”
“…………….Notable is that while SARS spread to about 40 countries, the infections in most countries were few and deaths almost zero, and it was exclusively (or almost exclusively) Chinese who were infected, those in Hong Kong most seriously, with Mainland China suffering little by comparison.
This appears to be precisely the case with this new virus, in that most of the infected persons (sofar) are Chinese. News reports speak of infections appearing in Thailand or the US, but those (at least to date of writing) were all Chinese who had been to Wuhan. There have been no cases so far of infected Caucasians.
As with SARS, this new virus appears to be tightly-focused to Chinese. At this stage it is too early to draw specific conclusions.
We might in other circumstances pass this off as an unfortunate coincidence but for some major circumstantial events that serve to alter our focus. One of these is the history of American universities and NGOs having come into China in recent years to conduct biological experiments that were so illegal as to leave the Chinese authorities enraged. This was particularly true when it became known that Harvard University had surreptitiously proceeded with experiments in China that had been forbidden by the authorities years earlier, where they collected many hundreds of thousands of Chinese DNA samples and then left the country.

The Chinese were furious to learn that Americans were collecting Chinese DNA. The government intervened and prohibited the further export of any of the data. The conclusion at the time was that the ‘research’ had been commissioned by the US military with the DNA samples destined for race-specific bio-weapons research…………..:
