Back in 1998, CIA Director William Casey created a task: to create biological weapons that would be ethnically specific. A large amount of money was spent on this program – tens of billions of dollars. There is reason to believe that the Americans have achieved some success in the development and production of ethnically specific biological weapons.

The fictional Jacobus Laningdale is a little-known professor who works in the Department of Public Health in New York City. He is the hero of Jack London's science fiction story, “The Unparalleled Invasion.”

According to London, “It was in the year 1976 that the trouble between the world and China reached its culmination.” The main problem was that the population of China reached 1 billion people. Millions of Chinese began to colonize the rest of the country. The world soon came to believe that “China was to be feared, not in war, but in commerce.”

Europe and the United States opposed China. However, traditional methods of warfare did not yield results. Laningdale proposed a solution to the president. Soon, a land and sea blockade was organized around China, and on May 1, 1976, a large number of allied aircraft appeared over the entire territory of China. Thin glass tubes were released, which were broken into small fragments in the fall.

It turned out that in these tubes were microbes, bacteria and bacilli of dozens of diseases grown in laboratories in the West. Jack London writes that “it was ultra-modern war, twentieth century war, the war of the scientist and the laboratory, the war of Jacobus Laningdale.” As a result, the entire population of China died out in a short time from dozens of epidemics.

Fictional stories often paint an image of the future. The recent unexpected outbreak in China of the previously unknown coronavirus, designated 2019-nCoV, makes one think about the possible artificial origin of this virus, as well as its use against a particular ethnic group.

What are the arguments in favor of this version of events?

This is not the first epidemic in China. The coronavirus bears a frightening resemblance to SARS. As a result of this disease, nearly 800 people died in 37 countries from 2002-2003. The first case was reported in November 2002 in the Chinese province of Guangdong.

A Chinese professor, who has already died, had spoken earlier about the SARS epidemic in China from 2002-2003. The scientist said, “SARS was developed by the CIA specifically to kill the Chinese and will not infect the Japanese.”

In some strange way, the outbreak of a new virus has coincided with a period that is very suitable for the rapid spread of the disease. In 2020, the Chinese New Year, according to the Eastern calendar, is celebrated on the night of Jan. 24 to Jan. 25. The first recorded case of the coronavirus occurred on Dec. 31, 2019. On the eve of the New Year holiday in China, China sees its largest annual migration. In 2020, about 440 million passengers are expected to travel by train during the month, and about 80 million by air.

It should be noted that China has a very high population mobility. The country has a developed network of high-speed railways, highways and air transportation. This makes China very vulnerable to the rapid spread of outbreaks.

The coronavirus outbreak occurred during the U.S.-China trade war. The first phase of the trade deal was signed at the beginning of 2020, but it’s just a short truce, and it is very easy to divert attention from yourself by signing a document of little value.

Regarding the new coronavirus, some experts were surprised by the quick response by physicians from the United States. They said they were ready to begin clinical trials of a new vaccine in a few months, a fairly quick result, which raises questions. Russian doctors, on the other hand, so far say that they will only be able to get a specific test to identify carriers of the coronavirus in the foreseeable future.

According to Ma Xiaowei, the head of the National Health Commission of the People's Republic of China, the new virus is able to spread from person to person during the incubation period, which lasts up to 14 days. He further added, “Some patients have normal temperatures, and there are many moderate cases. Hidden carriers make controlling the outbreak a lot more difficult.”

That is, an infected person may not suspect that he or she is already sick and have contact with other people for two weeks, infecting everyone around him or her.

Geographically, the outbreak of the new coronavirus has occurred in the Chinese city of Wuhan in Hubei province. About 12 million people live in this city. In 2017, in Wuhan, researchers opened a laboratory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, which is able to conduct experiments with highly pathogenic microorganisms that can cause fatal diseases.

This fact immediately brings to mind a version of Jack London’s broken glass tubes. It would be ideal to disguise a special operation involving the use of biological weapons against China in the city of Wuhan, where there is such a laboratory.

The United States has been actively engaged in the development of biological weapons for a long time. Back in 1998, CIA director William Casey created a task: to create biological weapons that would be ethnically specific. A large amount of money was spent on this program – tens of billions of dollars. There is reason to believe that the Americans have achieved some success in the development and production of ethnically specific biological weapons.

A number of experts claim that the coronavirus has a low mortality rate of only 2%, but it is too early to draw such a conclusion.

As of 1:50 p.m. in Moscow on Jan. 28, 2020, the number of people infected in all countries is 4,474. Of these, 4,409 people are infected in mainland China, 107 people have died, 63 people have recovered, 4,304 people are still ill, and the final results are not yet known. The percentage of deaths from the virus will be calculated when it is known if the people from this list of 4,474 have either recovered or died. At the moment, there is no such information. Perhaps it will appear only after the outbreak is over.

The theory that the coronavirus belongs to an ethnically specific biological weapon is a hypothesis until proven otherwise. Of course, only a detailed decoding of this virus will provide an accurate picture. However, even if the worst fears are confirmed, it is not certain that this information will be available to the general public.
