The Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) deceit and lies led to the pandemic known as the China coronavirus or CCP Virus, and they are to be held responsible for its spread across the globe to over 100 countries, destroying lives and economies in many countries. When the CCP virus first emerged in Wuhan, the CCP deliberately withheld information from their own people, and anyone who tried to put out warnings was punished.
Remember the SARS epidemic in 2002, it was concealed for a month, which caused its spread to 26 countries, and infected 8,000 people.
Even now, in an effort to cover up what is really happening in China, the CCP has decided to ban journalists from the United States from entering China.
Reporters from several top media outlets, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal, have been expelled from China.
“The Chinese Communist Party’s decision to expel journalists from China and Hong Kong is yet another step toward depriving the Chinese people and the world of access to true information about China,” the National Security Council tweeted. “The United States calls on China’s leaders to refocus their efforts from expelling journalists and spreading disinformation to joining all nations in stopping the Wuhan coronavirus.”
A representative from China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs accused the United States of “purposely making things difficult” for Chinese reporters and subjecting them to “growing discrimination and politically motivated oppression.” repored Fox News.
In a statement, China claimed the new restrictions on U.S. reporters was a retaliation against the Trump administration for putting caps on the number of journalists from five Chinese state-run media outlets working in the United States last month, according to Fox News.
The United States has been accused by China of “purposely making things difficult” for Chinese reporters and subjecting them to “growing discrimination and politically motivated oppression,” said a representative from China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
“They will not be allowed to continue working as journalists in the People’s Republic of China, including its Hong Kong and Macao Special Administrative Regions,” the statement read.
China called its tough new rules “legitimate and justified self-defense in every sense.”
“We strongly condemn the decision of the Chinese authorities to expel American journalists, an action that is especially irresponsible at a time when the world needs the free and open flow of credible information about the coronavirus pandemic,” New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet said in a statement. “It is a grave mistake for China to move backward and cut itself off from several of the world’s top news organizations.”
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Tuesday, March 17, “The individuals that we identified a few weeks back were not media that were acting here freely,” adding, “They were part of Chinese propaganda outlets. We’ve identified these as foreign missions under American law. These aren’t apples to apples, and I regret China’s decision today to further foreclose the world’s ability to conduct free press operations.”
At the beginning of February, the Foreign Ministry propaganda narrative said that the CCP Virus stems from the United States and the CCP voice the Global Times has been casting slurs against the United States.
After buying its way into schools, universities, and the private sector, China has become bolder in its attack on America, openly blaming the U.S. military for infecting China with the CCP Virus, a lie that President Trump has addressed. The president, vice president and secretary of state have referred to the virus as the “Wuhan virus” as a response to what Beijing is inferring.
In a nationally televised press conference the president said, “Rather than having an argument, I said, I have to call it where it came from. It did come from China.”
On Monday, Trump tweeted, “The United States will be powerfully supporting those industries, like Airlines and others, that are particularly affected by the Chinese Virus. We will be stronger than ever before!”

Then, on Tuesday, he used the “China virus” reference again. “Cuomo wants ‘all states to be treated the same.’ But all states aren’t the same. Some are being hit hard by the Chinese Virus, some are being hit practically not at all. New York is a very big ‘hotspot,’ West Virginia has, thus far, zero cases. Andrew, keep politics out of it….”

China has deliberately withheld information about the start of the coronavirus in Wuhan.
Keep in mind, China is controlling most of the pharmaceuticals in the United States. “They feel they have the power to threaten our people if we hurt their feelings if we extend the travel ban,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) told Breitbart News.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio made the decision to close all public schools, affecting more than 1 million students, an arrangement he made “with no joy and a lot of pain,” according to the VOA.
“The virus can spread rapidly through the close interactions New Yorkers have in restaurants, bars, and places where we sit close together. We have to break that cycle. Tomorrow, I will sign an executive order limiting restaurants, bars, and cafes to food take-out and delivery,” de Blasio said in a statement on Twitter.
The CCP Virus is an especially contagious disease, and something not experienced before by today’s generation.
