'Escaped' is a polite word for 'sold'.

When you zoom out and look at what is happening in China over the last 2 decades it's understandable that they want to be seen a global super power. I have a little knowledge on china's economy and their domestic and economic state is very much like 1940's post war USA, on a massive social boom. This disaster is a total embarrassment for a proud regime. The late Hans Rosling wrote some very detailed info fr the last 100 years of Chinese data and how the wealth level of the average Chinese person has risen to that of middle class (have a car, home, water and electric) and they are on path to be the worlds richest country, and this current situation is like a fly in your beer. The narrative (for them) needs to be turned to the US and UK, and almost make it look like it's their fault, create a argument, avoid the headlines. It's seem like it is working tbh.

I cant send the links from my phone news feed to here.

In summary tho, the lab in wuhan was under equipped and the lab techs were not suitable and this accident is being erased from the world news, to save Chinese embarrassment, and the WHO are covering for them. The news about the lab techs that were fired last September for selling lab meat to the markets has also been scrubbed. I know how that sounds, but it was out there!!

They’re saying it possibly escaped the lab, not that test subjects were sold to market

This highlights who incompetence.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) has spread throughout the world, having infected more than 100,000 people and causing the deaths of more than 4,000. Officials in charge of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have rightly received plenty of criticism about how they’ve managed the outbreak, with nearly half a million people calling on WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus to resign.

The reason for the WHO’s failure to properly act to contain the outbreak, and its repeated issuing of inaccurate and bad advice, is not merely the result of incompetence. Rather, the malfeasance is the direct result of the CCP deliberately buying out WHO’s leadership, with tragic consequences.


Experts have pinned the virus as starting possibly as early as October, months before the CCP alerted the world about the risks posed by the deadly disease. Rather than addressing the issue, China arrested journalists and doctors who tried to sound the alarm. In addition, the “People’s Republic” blocked information on social media and removed all news stories that attempted to report accurate infection numbers. The end result of this was preventable suffering, as countries were unable to take the urgent action needed to respond.

Yet through all the CCP’s obfuscation and ensigning preventable deaths, the WHO consistently praised the CCP for its “transparency” and “leadership,” saying its actions were “making us safer.” To the incredulity of health professionals around the world when finally alerted to the seriousness of the threat in January, the WHO refused to declare it a public health emergency. It took until February 10 for the WHO to even send an advance party to China.

At the same time WHO representatives gushed in praise of the regime’s response, noting the “Chinese people feel protected.” The WHO continues to lavishly praise China as they continued to downplay the threat of the coronavirus, taking months to classify it finally as a pandemic because that “might spook the world further.”

The root cause is the supermarkets/buyers of the produce. Won’t pay a good price for produce but happy to sell it for much more. Farmers can’t afford to pay above minimum wage for workers otherwise they’d go bankrupt. Cheap labour needs importing. Are consumers as much to blame for wanting as cheap as possible food items? Or is that because people just don’t have enough to pay the premium prices of the more organic foods all the time. I see in Tesco 1kg of carrots for 60p or whatever but the organically farmed (doesn’t mean not picked by cheap labour but you get my drift) costs double that. It’s not affordable for everyone to double their vegetable shop on a weekly basis. So do you take it further back to what a living wage is and what people get paid for their jobs?

It runs pretty deep and everyone will see who to blame as different but end of the day should the government have let it happen like this and should they step in to stop it?

A good example of the poor contracts farmers get in to to try and secure their businesses can be seen from what Freshways have done in the last few days.l!!

For that to happen there must be something wrong with our system, we need some Route Cause Analysis

Not sure we are enforcing two weeks isolation from anyone coming in to the country bud. There’s multiple reports of people flying in and no one even taking their temperature in UK airports or asking any questions. The fact the borders are open is a disgrace in itself. I think it’s less dangerous than other flights because from what I can see Romania isn’t that bad, compared to us anyway, 7,500 cases & 375 deaths or thereabouts, plus the people are all together on the same plane, going to the same place in the same vehicles. Limits spread risk I guess. Still not right at all that any flights can get in the country. Don’t get me started on the illegal Calais crossing being rescued and not tested despite the outbreak in the camps!

They’ve said furloughed workers cannot work elsewhere. They can volunteer though. But not in the same organisation.
