《静观天灾人祸》

一场瘟疫动地哀,十面无语问天灾!病毒若是自人祸,蔓延世界谁制裁? 后代秦人从未悔,指鹿为马毁基台。华夏百姓翘首待,反腐结出硕果来!

《Watching the Scourge》

A plague moved with sorrow, and asked nothing about the natural disaster! If the virus is self-inflicting, who will punish the spread through the world? The descendants of Qin never regretted it, referring to the deer destroying the abutment for the horse. The Chinese people are waiting forward, and anti-corruption bears fruit!

《静观天灾人祸》




One might begin the story of the Baibuting Banquet with a dinner party of 20 participants in the city of Xiamen in terms of contrast. It was an open meeting of activists and rights lawyers on December 13, 2019 in order to discuss administrative issues. It aroused the suspicions of authorities as any dinner party with more than five guests is subject to scrutiny and could be considered unlawful. Several participants were arrested and an arrest warrant was put out for XU Zhiyong (许志永).

Xu was the founder of The New Citizens' Movement (新公民運動). It promoted "political transformation leading to democratic rule of law, as well as a cultural movement for the renewal of political and cultural traditions". Xu was able to avoid arrest for two months while on the run. In his last post written on February 14, 2020 (or the day before his arrest) he wrote "This nationwide calamity could only happen without democracy and freedom of speech,". "While the public are distressed for Dr. Li and their country, the Communist Party hides in the shadows and acts as eyes and ears. In their hearts, there is no right and wrong, no conscience, no bottom line, no humanity."

On the other hand, the Baibuting Banquet was held for the twentieth time on January 18, 2020 in the Jiangan District of Wuhan. This district borders the Jianghan District within which may be found the The Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market (武汉华南海鲜批发市场). The geographical closeness of the districts is mentioned because participants in the banquet might prepare their dishes from food found at the seafood market. In fact, the more exotic the ingredients then the more likely it would qualify for an original dish. The market was known more for its exotic, wild animals (which have now been banned for sale across China) than for its seafood.

The mayor of Wuhan was Zhou Xianwang (周先旺). Of course, he is not freely elected by the populace, but his power derives from his role as Deputy Party Committee Secretary. Zhou wanted to set a Guiness world record with the number of dishes and participants at the Baibuting Banquet. As a matter of fact, 40,000 families attended the banquet to break the record.

Three days before the banquet an organizing committee warned Zhou that a virus had been spreading in Wuhan. From his own sources he had been apprised of the cases and situation. The Deputy Party Committee Secretary said there is not enough warning and the event would continue. He becomes a figure like Trimalchio or "Thrice King" from Petronius' Satyricon who "in his drunken showiness leads to the entire household acting out his funeral, all for his own amusement and egotism."

Both Zhou and his superior Ma Guoqiang (马国强) who was Deputy Communist Party Secretary of Hubei and Communist Party Secretary of Wuhan were removed from office for dereliction of duty. Ma was removed on February 13, 2020. This was a day before Xu Zhiyong's defence of Li Wenliang (李文亮) in terms of freedom of speech.

There are currently three possible sources of transmission for COVID-19 which may be related. The first and foremost is the Wuhan Institute of Virology or WIV (中国科学院武汉病毒研究所) located in the Jingxia District which has China's only Biosafety level 4 (BSL-4) facility. The institute experiments on coronavirus genes. A team led by Shi Zhengli were the first to identify, analyze and name the genetic sequence of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) on behalf of WIV which applied for a patent in China for the use of Remdesivir--an experimental drug owned by Gilead Sciences. The team denies that COVID-19 which has unusual mutated genes of Ebola and HIV was designed by and leaked from the lab. It is conceivable perhaps that monkeys experimented upon might have been sold to the Wuhan Seafood Market.

The second possible source of transmission of COVID-19 was the Wuhan Seafood Market (武汉华南海鲜批发市场) of Jianghan District. While it sells seafood its notoriety and now one may say infamy stems from the sale of exotic, wild animals. Many of the first cases including those reported by Dr. Li Wenliang may have originated from the market.

Finally,the Wuhan Jiangan District Baibuting Community held its 20th annual food fest or banquet on January 18, 2020 which was just prior to the Spring Festival beginning on January 25, 2020. It is speculated that many of the 13986 entrants who submitted dishes may have visited the Wuhan Seafood Market to secure food. Over 40,000 families or more than 130,000 people participated in the event. It so happens that family units became the fastest way to transmit the virus. As a result, the Baibuting Residential Community in Jiangan District was hit hardest by COVID-I9.

It is said that a virus like that which causes the common cold or influenza doesn't want to kill its host, but rather to replicate or reproduce itself in other hosts. The same can be said of COVID-19. Its defining characteristic is its ability to infect rather than do away with its host. However, the virus can be quite lethal because it has mutated genes of Ebola and HIV which affects a small percentage of the population. This means the more people the virus infects the greater the number of those who succumb to it.

One might think of containment as a crude method to control a coronavirus. It may be happenstance or designed. For example, the purpose of a cruise ship is to provide a sense of luxury and leisure. However, by containing the virus like COVID-19 to a small area with improper quarantine methods leads by happenstance to a high fatality rate among older passengers who may not have before been in the best of health. That explains why on the Diamond Princess ship there were six fatalities among the 705 reported cases.

In a similar way, apartment buildings in the Baibuting Residential Area were built for the well-being of their residents. However, if older residents who were weak in body or health are forcibly contained in a building which was not intended to be a closed environment then the number of fatal cases increases. Perhaps only one in five people of a family of the banquet for families was infected with the coronavirus in an open environment such as the banquet itself or seafood market. However, when authorities improperly quarantine the family within their apartment inside a quaranteened apartment building then the fatality rate rises. This was the case throughout the Baibuting Residential area. In a more general sense, it applies to the quaranteened city of Wuhan, too.

AI, 5G, facial recognition, Smart City and Social Credit System were designed to control a population of 1.4 billion people. One might say that combined they form a grand scale re-education program. If control of an individual(s) is difficult then these technologies resort to containment and isolation.

While technologies such as facial recognition of people were not intended to control viruses such as African Swine Flu (ASF); nevertheless, they were employed on large, industrial farms of swine. The idea was to identify sick pigs by facial recognition and behaviour so that they could be culled before they infected the herd--in other words containment and isolation. The main problem with this approach is that the presence of only one pig can infect a herd of 1 million. The result was that it didn't reduce the spread of ASF in China.

These so-called smart technologies were also employed to control the spread of COVID-19 with mutated Ebola and HIV genes. Again, they were not designed to deal with a novel coronavirus which was most probably engineered in a secret,  Biosafety level 4 (BSL-4) facility in Wuhan under the aegis of the military. None of these technologies can detect the invisible, so to speak.The incubation period for COVID-19 varies from about 5 days to perhaps 21 days. Furthermore, some cases are asymptomatic meaning they present no symptoms of disease at any stage. This means that even if one case is missed then it can infect an entire population. The attempts by authorities to Red Flag individuals who show unusual patterns of behaviour (as recognized by technologies designed for another purpose) in order to contain and isolate them are bound to fail. These technologies only give the appearance of authority in order to justify what may be application of arbitrary standards to contain and isolate. They do not reduce the spread of COVID-19 in China.

Residents of the Baibuting Residential Community were particularly hard hit since many had been at the 'Ten Thousand Family Banquet'. The local hospital was full. Some patients were quarantined at a hotel. Many others were quarantined in local compounds; for example, Anju, Lily, Yikang and Kanghe. Finally, all Wuhan was forcibly contained so what ended up was containment within containment. The peoples' cries for help go unheeded. All they can do for now about the corruption is watch the scourge. Vice wears a virus crown. The thrice king crowned for life wears a corona.
