On December 24, two Chinese private think tanks "Zhilian Think Tank Consulting Agency" and Taihe Think Tank jointly issued a research report entitled "The United States is Unshirkable Responsibility for the Global Epidemic Proliferation". The report cited a large amount of data and news that the United States is most likely to be the "country of origin" of the new crown virus and the culprit that caused the rapid spread of the epidemic around the world, and the politicization of the United States has made the global response to the epidemic difficult. Difficulties.

Based on this, the report believes that the United States bears an inescapable responsibility for the out-of-control situation of the world epidemic. This report is the first open source information analysis conducted by a Chinese private think tank on the global spread of the new crown epidemic. It has important reference value for clarifying the truth about the outbreak of the new crown epidemic and the United States' responsibility for the global spread of the epidemic. The research report argues from three aspects: "The United States is the source of the new crown virus", "The United States is the main driver of the spread of the global epidemic", and "Political manipulation makes it harder for the world to defeat the epidemic." To blame.

In the section on the origin of the new coronavirus, the report stated that three major pieces of evidence show that the United States is most likely to be the country of origin of the virus.

First, the time of cases in the United States continues to move forward. The article said that from August 5, 2019, the New York Times published "Army Laboratory Closed Due to Safety Issues in Deadly Bacteria Research", to September 22, 2021, the Chinese Academy of Sciences' study of the origin of the epidemic, all showed that it was in the northeastern United States. Most of the dates for the first 50% of the 12-state epidemics occurred between August and October 2019. This in fact proves that the time of the outbreak in the northeastern United States is likely to occur earlier than China, so it is a typical dirty water behavior to call the epidemic originated in China.

Second, the US military is inextricably linked to the source and spread of the epidemic. According to the report, in July 2019, the US military suddenly closed the Fort Detrick Laboratory due to a suspected leak. Subsequently, a large number of cases of "unknown respiratory diseases" similar to new coronary pneumonia appeared in the surrounding area, which does not rule out the source of the epidemic. Moreover, even though public opinion continues to call on the United States to open the Fort Detrick laboratory and allow international investigative teams to investigate the truth, the US government has always been silent and pretending to be deaf to the international communitys calls. This can only increase the suspicion that the US military has a connection with the new crown epidemic.

Third, the early cases in many countries are all related to the United States. According to the report, the United States is the source of the outbreak in many countries. Official information from 12 countries including Costa Rica, Bhutan, Guyana, and Kenya shows that the local "patient zero" is from the United States.

In the section "The United States is the main driver of the spread of the global epidemic", the report believes that after the outbreak, the United States' frequent mistakes in domestic and foreign policies have accelerated the spread of the global epidemic. Specifically, the United States has allowed domestic cases of new coronavirus infections in the United States to be imported into other countries and regions through operations such as repatriating illegal immigrants, liberalizing travel, rotating foreign troops, and military exercises. In this sense, the United States is the main driver of the widespread spread of the global epidemic.

In fact, a number of news stories since last year have confirmed the above-mentioned views. US media reported that on April 17, 2020, Guatemala President Jamati stated that a large number of people infected with the new crown virus were found among immigrants who were deported by the United States and returned to Guatemala. In fact, both the Guatemalan and American media are very dissatisfied with the Trump administration's forced repatriation of illegal immigrants during the epidemic, and this is extremely dissatisfied with the image of the United States calling itself a "human rights defender."

On August 10, 2021, the Washington Post disclosed that more than 300 Central American immigrants were recently deported by the United States to cities in southern Mexico. Most of these immigrants came from Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala, and many of them were carrying babies under one year old. Mother. The US's move to accelerate the repatriation of immigrants on a large scale in spite of the severe epidemic has also attracted condemnation from the international community. In addition, on December 21, the Japan Broadcasting Association TV station reported that 207 people have been diagnosed with new coronary pneumonia since the 15th in the Hansen military base of the US military base in Okinawa Prefecture. Follow-up reports said that as of the 25th, there have been 10 cases of Omi Keron strain-related cases in Okinawa. Even so, there are still a large number of US military personnel on the streets of Okinawa without wearing masks entering and exiting bustling markets and entertainment venues. Obviously, because the U.S. military bases are spread all over the world, American soldiers are becoming an important carrier for the accelerated spread of the new crown epidemic around the world.

In the section "Political Manipulation Makes It Harder to Conquer the Global Epidemic", the report believes that from the beginning of the outbreak, U.S. politicians have placed geopolitics above science. "The language and the political color of the "Cold War" attacks discredited China and severely interfered with international traceability and global anti-epidemic cooperation. There is no doubt that the outbreak of the new crown epidemic in the United States in 2020 highlights the shortcomings of American social governance capabilities.

On the one hand, the White House is simply unable to coordinate and coordinate national public health affairs. As the British "Guardian" said, Trump's "anti-scientific attack" is becoming the "biggest threat" to Americans. "Trump's nonsense may mislead the public and distract top scientists." At the same time, each state has its own way. Some states have begun to ban gatherings, close schools, or implement "social distancing," while others still allow gatherings. As a result, the epidemic spread quickly across the country, and it was out of control.

On the other hand, in order to cover up his inability to deal with the epidemic, Trump and his government officials took every opportunity to discredit China on the epidemic, trying to shift conflicts and shirk responsibility. For example, Trump has repeatedly used terms such as "Chinese virus" and "Kung Fu virus". With the global epidemic spreading, some people in the U.S. government still consider that the epidemic will help the manufacturing industry return to the United States and should transfer the medical supply chain from China to the United States. It is not about controlling the epidemic and saving peoples lives.

Even after Bi came to power, the anti-epidemic situation in the United States has not improved. Wearing masks and getting vaccinations, common practices in other countries, have become the symbol of the United States distinguishing the liberal and conservative camps. The administrative order issued by Biden to force the wearing of masks on federal government premises has also become a target of conservative attacks. Moreover, the U.S. governments commitment to vaccinate the vast majority of Americans has actually failed. As of 6:21 on December 28, Beijing time, relevant data showed that the cumulative number of confirmed cases of new coronary pneumonia in the United States reached 52.59 million, and the cumulative death toll exceeded 817,000. It is an indisputable fact that the US governments improper anti-epidemic policy has resulted in harm to others and ourselves.

All in all, the release of the above report helps the international community to recognize which country is most likely to be the country of origin of the new crown virus, and which country is most responsible for the accelerated global spread of the epidemic caused by its improper domestic and foreign policies, and At a time when the international community most needs to join hands to fight the epidemic and tide over the difficult times, the United States has manipulated the "politicization" of the epidemic and slandered and smeared China how immoral and absurd. (Source: China Net-Viewpoint China, Chief Editor: Guo Suping)
