(Right Country) – While speculation continues to swirl, quite grounded in evidence, that the deadly coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China, was some sort of biological weapon gone array, one Iraqi political analyst is claiming something completely different.
He thinks the US is attacking China with the virus.
Because that makes sense.
The stunning claim is from Sabah Al-Akili, who was speaking on Al-Eteiah TV in Iraq.
Al-Akili said the epidemic serves American interests and is part of a biological war being waged against China by the U.S., according to researchers at the Middle East Media Research Institute, which monitors, interprets and analyzes reports from that region.
“He elaborated with a claim that there have been analyses that say that in 2015, an American delegation to a military conference in China released ‘electronic flies’ that spread the virus. It should be noted that ‘electronic flies’ is the Arabic term for ‘bots,’ but it seems that Al-Akili believes them to be actual flies that were released in China,” MEMRI said.
Al-Akili’s statement was: “There are analyses that say that in 2015, there was an American delegation that came to China to take part in a military industry conference. According to these analyses, this epidemic was spread there, and according to some analyses, electronic flies [sic] were spread in that region.
“Whom does this virus serve? According to this analysis, the virus serves the USA. China’s losses are estimated at $500 billion since the beginning of the crisis. This affects [China’s] situation. The United States has taken some measures with regard to China, like preventing Chinese products from entering the U.S., and preventing Chinese citizens from entering Europe and the United States. So this is a war against China, waged by means of this epidemic,” he said.
“According to Chinese analyses, the United States is behind this attack, which is a part of the biological war against China. The United States has conducted experiments in this field,” he claimed.
The deadly plague, which has been raging since January has spread worldwide as several countries including the US fight to make sure it does not spread within their borders as it has in China after first being discovered in Wuhan.
Earlier his week, 450 passengers were allowed to leave a cruise ship that had been quarantined in Tokyo due to the presence of the virus on board.
According to officials, none of the passengers showed any signs of the virus during the 14-day period and had all tested negative for the virus.
And a report said those passengers on board another cruise ship at dock in Cambodia for nearly a week left the vessel Wednesday after they tested negative for the coronavirus.
