Documentary Explores the Origins of the CCP Virus

As the documentary shows, the CCP’s delay in sharing information about the virus with other countries was not mere oversight.

While The Epoch Times began publishing reports of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus on Jan. 2, most outlets had yet to pick up on the story because of the CCP’s lockdown on information. Three months later, over 200 countries and territories have been infected and the CCP virus has caused over 85,000 deaths infecting at least 1.4 million, but information is murkier than ever.

“We’ve pretty much heard every rumor under the sun. We’ve heard every theory, every crazy rumor, we’ve heard all these different narratives,” said Joshua Philipp, award-winning investigative reporter and host of the show “Crossroads.”

The rumors aren’t by accident: The CCP has been actively engaging in a disinformation campaign, and media outlets around the world have parroted the propaganda. As a result, entire nations have been operating under false information as they try to battle the pandemic within their borders.

Philipp and his colleages at The Epoch Times and NTD Television thought it their responsibility to sift through all the information available, verify it, and put it into one place. The result is the just-premiered documentary “Tracking Down the Origin of the Wuhan Coronavirus,” which is available to watch online. Less than two days after its premiere, the documentary has around 1.6 million views across different platforms.

The film “really tries to sift through all of the rumors, all of the truths, all of the falsehoods, and show people as accurate a picture as possible of what really happened and where this virus actually came from,” Philipp said.

In it, Philipp pieces together the development of the virus and includes interviews that shed light on the Chinese regime’s actions and intentions.

Lives at Stake

It should be very telling that the nine-person panel the CCP created to address the pandemic, once it finally acknowledged the virus in January, is filled with propaganda officials, said China affairs columnist Gordon Chang in the documentary.

Many countries have accepted or bought faulty equipment from China, for example, and “they’re getting duped,” Philipp said. “And, of course, this is because they don’t understand the Chinese Communist Party, they don’t understand how [the CCP] works, and, even as we speak right now, the Chinese Communist Party is claiming it’s over in China when it’s not.”

“And what that means is, as they open things up and reopen flights, there’s a major risk to other countries,” Philipp said. “If [these countries] don’t have accurate information, then what can they base their information on?”

As the documentary shows, the CCP’s delay in sharing information about the virus with other countries was not mere oversight. And beyond covering up the epidemic, China’s current actions and disinformation continues to endanger lives around the globe. The CCP has gone from denying the existence of the virus to spreading as many lies as it can to obscure the truth.

“This is an issue of human life,” Philipp said.

Why Would the CCP Lie?

From the beginning, the CCP has not been forthcoming.

“We don’t know what’s there, but the fact that the Communist Party is covering this up should trouble us deeply,” Chang said.

Those unfamiliar with the CCP will likely be shocked to discover the regime’s motives.

Philipp’s investigation of the CCP virus in this documentary goes back to the outbreak of SARS nearly two decades ago. The CCP tried to cover up the SARS outbreak as well, and The Epoch Times was one of the few media to expose this. There is precedent of the regime being untrustworthy in the event of an epidemic.

Philipp has been researching the CCP since 2008, and gave an example of its military approach to shed light on how the CCP can profit off this pandemic most consider a tragedy.

“One important thing to understand is they talk about war without morals. They talk about ‘unrestricted warfare’: war that does not take into account any concept of human rights, human dignity, human life. It is victory by any means. There is nothing they will not do, and we see the same thing in many parts of their system, including the medical system where altering the human genome is not a big deal to them,” Philipp said.

The documentary’s experts remind us: this is a nation that currently holds at least 1 million of its own people in concentration camps. “They don’t care about human life when it comes to this regime—we’ve seen that in their human rights abuses,” Philipp said.

The documentary shows another link to SARS, and how one of China’s top virus experts’ study of SARS at the Wuhan Institute of Virology led to breakthroughs in creating a coronavirus to infect humans. But to what end?

“The Chinese Communist Party has been very open about its biological warfare ambitions, they don’t even try to hide it. And it’s been a huge injustice that people have not held them to stronger account than they should have, because the Chinese Communist Party is able to act with impunity and nobody criticizes what they do,” Philipp said.

The documentary is a comprehensive look at what the virus is and what has happened, and Philipp hopes it can allow nations to make better-informed decisions.

“At the very least, we can provide this as a package of information that will inform the entire world exactly where this virus came from, and exactly what needs to be done going forward,” he said. “And at the very least, they will be more cautious when dealing with the Chinese Communist Party, especially at this time.”

“People’s lives are at stake and we find it very necessary to do this kind of work,” he said.

If these morons haven’t been to China, and haven’t had access directly to information in China, how do they think they can make a bullshit “documentary” on where this virus originated from?

How could the The Duran publish this Falun Gong anti-chinese propaganda piece without any comment? Do the two Alex’s even examine the contents of the stuff they post?

needs more down votes, perhaps then an editor will do more editing, or the editor in chief will do more chiefing.

Alex I’m dumbfounded that YOU have put this article together as stated above the article. I can’t believe its even on the Duran. In no way am I defending the CCP, but my god America has done and continues to do the same if not far worse. America has over 30 bio-weapons labs spread throughout the world, including around Russia and China, I wonder how Americans would feel if Russia and/or China had bio-weapons labs on American borders. And for the article, (actually it’s not an article it’s a typical American propaganda notice) to be going on about 1 million… Read more »

Chinese “regime”?!!
Using that term already indicates an negative Anti-China stance. Biased article.
Epoch Times???? Here you go:
The Epoch Times is the second highest-spender on pro-Trump Facebook ads, just after the Trump campaign itself.

Just an FYI if you attempt to post the YouTube link in FaceBook a pop up says it’s believed that it is false information, so that should make you even more suspicious of the overlords at FaceBook.
