As the COVID-19 pandemic that was launched one year-and-a-half ago in Wuhan, China begins to subside in the United States and other countries around the world, there are reports brewing that another virus is once again emerging from China: H10N3.
“A man in eastern China has contracted what might be the world’s first human case of the H10N3 strain of bird flu, but the risk of large-scale spread is low,” the AP reported, uncritically citing the CCP.
“The 41-year-old man in Jiangsu province, northwest of Shanghai, was hospitalized April 28 and is in stable condition, the National Health Commission said on its website,” the report continued, adding, “No human case of H10N3 has been reported elsewhere.”
“This infection is an accidental cross-species transmission,” its statement said. “The risk of large-scale transmission is low.”
The Associated Press made no further comment, despite its earlier reportage noting that the Chinese Communist Party deceived the world about COVID-19, which is caused by the virus SARS-CoV-2.
“Throughout January, the World Health Organization publicly praised China for what it called a speedy response to the new coronavirus,” the AP earlier reported. “It repeatedly thanked the Chinese government for sharing the genetic map of the virus ’immediately,’ and said its work and commitment to transparency were ‘very impressive, and beyond words.’”
“But behind the scenes, it was a much different story, one of significant delays by China and considerable frustration among WHO officials over not getting the information they needed to fight the spread of the deadly virus,” the AP said. This is what the WHO reported in January:

“As the AP previously documented, this culture has delayed warnings about the pandemic, blocked the sharing of information with the World Health Organization and hampered early testing,” the AP reported in December.
In February, the WHO backed China’s version of events that the virus could not have been started in a laboratory, and it considered the matter ‘case closed.’ The press conference on a ‘fact-finding’ mission’s findings had the following to say:
And it allowed the joint Chinese-WHO team to rule out one theory on the origins of the virus. The Wuhan Institute of Virology has collected many virus samples, leading to allegations that it may have been the source of the original outbreak, whether on purpose or accidentally.
But experts now consider the possibility of such a leak so improbable that it will not be suggested as an avenue of future study, said Embarek, a WHO food safety and animal diseases expert.
The AP rightly points out: “China had already strongly rejected that possibility and has promoted other theories. The Chinese and foreign experts considered several ideas for how the disease first ended up in humans, leading to a pandemic that has now killed more than 2.3 million people worldwide.”
There are numerous timelines showing that China lied and millions died. As Rep. Michael McFaul, a top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, recently put it: “This is the worst cover-up in human history.”
It is enough to make numerous people suspicious about the timing and intentions of another potential epidemic emanating from China. After all, the following are pandemics that have potentially began in or near present-day China:
- 1957-1958 Pandemic (H2N2 virus, a strain of ‘avian flu’). Origin: Singapore; Hong Kong (aka the “Asian flu”)
- 1968 Pandemic (H3N2 virus, a strain of ‘avian flu’). Origin: Fujian province in China (aka the “Fujian” or “Hong Kong flu”)
- 1997-2004 Pandemic (H5N1 virus, a strain of ‘avian flu’). Origin: China
- 2003 SARS Pandemic (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome). Origin: Mainland China (Guangdong Province)
- 2006 Avian Flu. Origin: Hong Kong (previously reported strains of H5N1 genotype V in China, Japan and South Korea)
- 2009 Swine Flu. Origin: Mexico (“uncertain,” studies suggest possibly Asia)
- 2010 Avian Flu. Origin: China.
- 2013 Swine Flu. Origin: Mexico (“uncertain,” studies suggest possibly Asia)
- 2019 COVID-19 Pandemic (SARS-CoV-2). Origin: Wuhan, China (aka “China Virus” or “Wuhan Flu”
It is unclear if H10N3 will prove to be as low-risk as the Communist Chinese government claims it is. Hopefully, that proves to be the case. But if it is one thing that the world should have learned from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is to never trust China.
