Breaking Report: Covid-19 Goes Back Further Than We Ever Imagined, Guess Where It All Began
For the rest of the world, the pandemic didn't hit until early 2020, but a solid timeline shows that Covid-19 was thriving in Wuhan China as early as spring of 2019. The reports used the purchase of Polymerase Chain Reaction tests to pinpoint when the virus was actually detectable and where. Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests are used to test for Covid-19.
What it shows is that China was buying up these tests months before the virus was detected anywhere else.
"The report — titled "Procuring for a Pandemic: An Assessment of Hubei Province PCR Procurement Contracts" — shows that the government in China was buying up testing related to the coronavirus much earlier than the officially recognized beginning of the pandemic.
“An initial view of the data depicts the dramatic increase of PCR procurement contracts in 2019,” the report says. “The increase was present in both the contract total value and the number of contracts.”
PCR tests are the gold standard for COVID-19 virus testing, The Record shows, and if there was a spike in the use of those tests in the Spring of 2019, as the report suggests, that could mean the timeline for when the virus was actually spreading in the wild would dramatically shift: from December 2019 to as early as May 2019.
Among other things, there was a dramatic increase in the total amount of money spent on these tests in and around Wuhan, in Hubei province, the report said. In 2015, institutions there spent about 19.1 million yuan ($2.9 million) on PCR tests. Two years later, in 2017, they spent about 29.1 million yuan and in 2018, institutions around Wuhan spent 36.7 million on these tests.
But when analysts looked at the spending in 2019, the government contract value for PCR tests was higher than the previous two years combined: 67.4 million yuan. (The tests got more expensive, which also suggests they got pricer as demand went up, the report says.)"
If all of this proves to be true, which seems to have an obvious trail, then the Chinese government could have warned the rest of the world of their problem months in advance. Essentially preventing the global pandemic we have today.
Instead, the communist nation brags that it has fewer Covid-19 cases than most of the world and tries to spin their innocence based on that claim. If China does, in fact, have fewer cases it's apparently because they had the virus nearly a year before anyone else.
