China botched handling of the Coronavirus

So current update 800 infected and suspected cases in several nations including USA. China claiming virus mutated in a meat market in a major chinese city. China has just announce restricting movement of 35 million on the week of Chinese New Years

Current Rumor mill is
A. China was aware much earlier and supress the numbers and information.

B. Strain is believe to have come from a bio weapon lab in China and was accidently release

C. The actual infect number is closer to 10,000

D. Panic is already breaking out in China.

What your thoughts?

All the media there are government-controlled and heavily censored. Makes it easier to hide the fuckery, and therefore there's less incentive to do anything to stop it.

Seems like someone has been applying "Plague Inc" viruses to the real world.

From what I hear from my counterparts in China.

A. Somewhat true, but not entirely due to the official communication processes there

B. The said lab is in the city of Wuhan. It is a level 4 lab and there are 50-60 of such qualified lab worldwide. The lab is around 20 miles from the market that many believed the virus originated. Thus such rumor

C. It is actually much higher - Lunar New Year week and many have traveled to many parts of the world for reunions and leisure

D. Shanghai Disneyland was closed, Wuhau city is "quarantined", many in Wuhan are trying to get out from the city by different means so they can get medical treatments if they are infected. The resource within the city is running thinner. I would not say it is a panic. Again, it is what news are depicted

Pretty weak bioweapon with such a low mortality rate.

China needs to up their game.

Oh we’re doing conspiracies on the forum now? Cool!

Chinese government got tired of the bad publicity of the riots and citizens going “missing” by unmarked “police officers” and couldn’t continue this path to control these riots. Introduce the CORONAVIRUS (bioweapon) that rapidly spreads and has a low mortality rate, but just high enough to scare people around the world so the Chinese government can quarantine their people to stop the spread of the virus, when in reality if someone tries to leave quarantine to go riot in Beijing, the government can kill them and say it was justified to stop the spread of the virus.

Did I do it right? Did I start a conspiracy theory properly?

There are many bio-weps that have little or no lethality capabilities. Just making a population sick, overcome with fear, slowing war production, taking soldiers off the battlefield, overrunning hospitals, concerned with keeping its citizens well .......goes a long way towards distracting and turning folks away from war.

If you are a Resident Evil fan, you will recognize the logo right away. It's like they aren't even trying to hide it lol.
