China Changes Tune About Coronavirus Coming From Wet Market; Here’s What They’re Saying Now

(Tea Party 247) – Despite having endured several months of the coronavirus pandemic, which has done a lot of damage around the world, both in death toll and economically speaking, we still don’t seem to have a ton of information on it to know what we are really dealing with.

One of the most critical pieces of information we need to know in order to be able to treat this illness and prepare ourselves for it’s eventual return in upcoming years, is where it came from. Knowing this and how it spread from animals to human is a critical part of creating a vaccination for the illness.

There are multiple theories being touted as possible explanations for the origins of COVID-19. Some are being widely spread and heralded as the “officials story,” while others are mocked, scorned, and laughed out of the room as conspiracy theories.

China’s prevailing theory up to this point is that the virus had come from the wet market, despite tons of evidence being found that suggests that it started in a lab and was accidentally released into the public.

Well, now China is singing a different tune. The communist country now says the virus did not come from the wet market after all, as there have been no virus samples found in the animals there.

Here’s more from Daily Wire:

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) reported this week in state-run media that Chinese scientists are now leaning towards believing that the coronavirus pandemic that has ravaged the world did not originate in Huanan seafood market in Wuhan.

The Global Times, which is Chinese state-run propaganda, said that while the original theory that China publicly promoted was that the coronavirus originated in the wet market, new evidence “indicates that the speculation may not be right.” The Global Times reported:

The Huanan seafood market is more like a victim of COVID-19 rather than the origin of the novel coronavirus, Gao Fu, director of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and member of the National Committee of the 13th Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, told the media on Monday.

Gao said he had gone to Wuhan to collect samples for COVID-19 researchers in early January, but no viruses were detected in the animal samples. Viruses were only found in environmental samples, including sewage.

As of now, the state-run media in China had no other suggestions for where the virus might have originated from. Again, U.S. intelligence sources have stated they believe COVID-19 managed to escape from the Wuhan Institute of Virology during an accident sometime toward the end of 2019.

The problem, of course, is that China has stonewalled attempts by other governments to come in and investigate the lab to see if there was indeed such a leak. You know how you ask someone a question and they give you a non-answer, which is really kind of an answer? Well, this situation feels like that.

The Saturday Telegraph, which is an Australian publication, reported earlier this month on a 15-page dossier compiled by the Five Eyes intelligence alliance, which is comprised of intelligence agencies from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand:

As intelligence agencies investigate whether the virus inadvertently leaked from a Wuhan laboratory, the team and its research led by scientist Shi Zhengli feature in the dossier prepared by Western governments that points to several studies they conducted as areas of concern.

It cites their work discovering samples of coronavirus from a cave in the Yunnan province with striking genetic similarity to COVID-19, along with their research synthesising a bat-derived coronavirus that could not be treated…

In Wuhan, in China’s Hubei province, not far from the now infamous Wuhan wet market, Dr Shi and her team work in high-protective gear in level-three and level-four bio-containment laboratories studying deadly bat-derived coronaviruses.

At least one of the ­estimated 50 virus samples Dr Shi has in her laboratory is a 96 per cent genetic match to COVID-19. When Dr Shi heard the news about the outbreak of a new ­pneumonia-like virus, she spoke about the sleepless nights she suffered worrying whether it was her lab that was responsible for the outbreak.

If the Wuhan Institute of Virology is responsible for the mess we have right now, and the communist government of China, along with help from the World Health Organization, managed to cover up the actual number of cases they had and the deaths that resulted from it, then they are responsible for the destruction of both lives and economies.

As such, they ought to be held accountable for what they have done and make amends in an appropriate manner, the least of which would include some sort of monetary payment to help ease the economic suffering resulting from the pandemic.



  1. The CCP is a danger to most of the world. Those who don’t recognize the reality of the intent of the CCP are not looking at the situation properly.

  2. China needs to be rejected by the US and the world———- not one country should buy anything from these liars —- they have no compassion and no soul – I hope God gives those responsible their just deserts And

    The world turn its back ion the communist Chinese government!

  3. It is lies built on lies. They are doing the best to deflect all blame away from themselves. So far they have come up with at least three different ways this virus blew up into a pandemic. They can believe their own lies but they shouldn’t expect the rest of the world to believe them.


  5. Sounds believable BUT we have been lied so many times! Therefore, lets wait until The US and allies make China PAY! Perhaps we should allow Coumo and other Blue States to SUE China for their economic losses.

  6. If I’m fact the virus was leaked from a lab in China they should be held accountable. It (COVID-19) has caused so much pain and destruction to the world. The death toll alone, is unbelievable and China should pay for this devastating tragedy.

  7. I don’t know why everyone keeps pretending that we don’t know that this bat coronavirus work being done in Wuhan that leaked was transferred there from the UNC at Chapel Hill. There are both paper and money trails, not to mention the same personnel being involved on both sides of the Pacific. SARS came out of there earlier, and observers have expressed concern about that lab’s lax safety protocol officially since then. The work was being done in collaboration between China and the U.S., probably with input and full knowledge of other nations….like maybe the five eyes nations? and the U.N. nations?

  8. While the findings are no real surprise it is interesting the the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) thru their propagandist media affiliations have chose to admit to it. Perhaps they feel that the rest of the world is NO LONGER BELIEVING anything they say. They are losing credibility and the world is crying for their accountability and payment for the chaos unleashed on them by trusting them and of course the W.H.O.
    Of course the W.H.O. credibility is also in the tank with China along with Bill Gates and his efforts to create disposable vaccinations with a company called ApiJect in which to insert RFID chips. Gates and other globalists are planning to get the US government to make these vaccinations MANDATORY. While I don’t think that will play out in America, the number of sheeple here is astounding

  9. My new view on “Made in China” is that I will buy an item so marked when it is the only item available that will solve a problem, and I cannot produce that solution without such item. In my opinion, China does not deserve the support that the United States has been giving it, and although I do not want to think about having another adversary on this planet, they have apparently brought this on themselves as a bad neighbor.

  10. Never, never and forever believe and listen the Chinese Communist LIAR !
    Be careful with their ambitions to invade the USA!

  11. I knew this thing came from a lab now cover up all you want but China was and is working on something to delete the leadership of all nations. This stuff mimics meningitis. Thought the counts are down it will rise again by August with a much deadlier impact on all. Those walking around with their heads up there ass thinking it’s over they’ll be the ones falling. TRUMP DONE ALL THAT HE COULD THANKS TO DUMB ASS CUOMO HIS STATE MOST LIKELY WILL SUFFER FIRST MR I DO AS I PLEASE AND THE POTUS CANT TELL ME HOW TO RUN MY STATE SOMEONE NEEDS TOO

  12. China is using the COVID-19 pandemic as an opportunity to completely take over Hong Kong, pushing thru CCP legislation taking liberties away from Hong Kong residents.

  13. Get the gene makeup (genome sequence) and THAT will tell you where it came from . . . and it WILL lead back to the CHINESE Bioweapons lab in Wuhan, NOT the “wet markets”. Wet markets don’t put out weapons grade bioweapons – Labs do. One Enlightened and WARY Patriot. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  14. Obvious sloppy containment at the laboratory?
    But consider flow of events
    Chinese New Year
    Millions of Chinese go to Wuhan from worldwide
    Virus released
    Chinese Communist Government ( CCG) Obviously, released the virus as CCG immediately denied travel from Wuhan into China b u t allowed Chinese traveling to other countries , where they lived and worked, creating misery and death!!

  15. Next month it will be another story coming out of China ,just don’t trust the C C P, (most of the Chinese people I have met are very nice , but NOT so their government ). In a photo/video seen earlier to day of the Wuhan wet market , an incredible 105 acres ???, just can’t be surely ?, but among all the live creatures to be sold for eating were tortoises,,how on earth can you kill a tortoise and how to eat it, as they retreat into their shells . Those of us who had them as ” pets ” know full well. In the past when maybe the Chinese peasants were in fear of starvation, their ” if it moves, eat it ” moto could possibly be justified but not now with supermarkets stuffed full of ” acceptable ” things to eat.

    • You cook tortoises in the shell.
      They still use medicines developed from the beginning of Chinese medicine.

    • Years back, I witnessed my father-in-law kill a large Snapper by putting one wire from a auto
      battery (12 volts DC) in his mouth and the second up his rear and electrocute him.
      We cooked him and he was delicious (but definitely not on your diet plan)
      F-I-L was an outdoorsman, a railroad brakeman, and more than a little bad-ass!

  16. The least China can do at this point is; admit the mistake, apologize to the world, offer monetary compensation and move on. If this does not happen the phase one deal will disintegrate and a new cold war will ensue. Both economies will suffer greatly. Russia will be the recipient of our failed economy and will fill our spot with China. They don’t seem to give a damn about all the dead in Russia.

  17. They did accidentally lose control of it at the WuHan Lab. Shows how deadly and uncontrolable Bio-Warfare is! The USA response though was HUGELY political and the Democratic Party should be held accountable for the huge destruction of USA business. The shutdowns have DONE MORE DAMAGE than the virus! I was a pandemic specialist. The way the 1916 Chinese Flu which killed 2% approx. of USA citizens was LESS of a catastrophe than the COVID19 was. Upstate NY was locked down just like NYC and yet the stats show no clearly that areas of the USA shutdown has done far more harm than good. The POLITICAL handling here has been a disgrace of government. It makes the left leaning press look terrible and the left leaning states look like the just want power.

  18. I agree, and let us be mindful that at the same time Chiba is emasculating Hong Kong – a symbol of Drmocracy in the midst of an evil empite.! Down with the CCP!

    • The CCP has a HUGE amount of power. And SOON they will CONTROL the USA thru our election this November! The WORLD would be way better off if the CCP could be eliminated! We need to stop relying on China for ANYTHING. Problem is the save money, we spend it, and huge government expenditures here guarantee their take over here. We must be VERY careful what more COVID19 related bailouts happen as it will put us in SLAVERY to China.
