Starting in late March early April 2022, the Chinese government ordered a Covid zero tolerance lockdown mandate pertaining to Shanghai, a port city of 26 million people:“ The official story put out by the city of Shanghai, and not denied by the Chinese Communist Party, is so extreme as to invite ridicule.

A new “zero tolerance” policy for COVID-19, which is a bogus non-existent disease in the first place, was imposed on all Shanghai citizens, first on the East side of the Huangpu River from March 28 [2022], and then for the entire city from April 1st.Supposedly all citizens will be tested for COVID-19. According to media reports, only 26,087 new cases of COVID-19 have been found, and of those, only 914 were symptomatic… The confinement of Shanghai’s labour force was carried out under a “Covid zero tolerance mandate”: “At least 38,000 medical workers from across China have been deployed to aid Shanghai … in the fight against the Omicron variant…” (Global Times) Omicron Is the Buzzword: Omicron and Its BA.5 Sub-Variant China’s Health authorities have confirmed that “Nucleic acid [namely the PCR ] tests are central to its strategy”. A Covid-19 Response Expert Panel headed by Dr. Liang Wannian was set up under the auspices of China’s National Health Commission.

Dr. Gao was a participant in the Scenario 201 October 2019 Table Top Simulation of a Coronavirus Pandemic, less than three months prior to the outbreak of the “Real Life” novel 2019 coronavirus epidemic in Wuhan in December 2019. From the outset, Dr. Gao Fu played a central role in overseeing Covid-19 in China, acting in close liaison with the US CDC, Fauci’s NIAID, the Gates Foundation, the WHO, Johns Hopkins, et al.George Fu Gao is an Oxford graduate.

For several years, he was fellow of the Wellcome Trust which is linked to Big Pharma. Gao Fu is a professional colleague and “longtime friend” of Anthony Fauci: “George F. Gao, head of China’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention, received the email from Anthony Fauci on March 28, 2020 [a few days after the lockdown in the US]. As Fauci faced criticism for his handling of the pandemic, Gao reached out again .“I saw some news (hope it is fake) that [you] are being attacked by some people. Hope you are well under such a irrational situation,” Gao wrote April 8, 2020.Three days later, Fauci replied and thanked his longtime friend for his “kind note.”“All is well despite some crazy people in this world,” Fauci wrote, the newspaper reported.”[…]
