You know the Wuhan Institute of Virology, that lab none of us could talk about until a month ago if we wanted to remain on social media?
Yeah, the Chinese government wants them to receive a NOBEL PRIZE IN MEDICINE:
"The award is mainly given to individuals or research groups who have made or demonstrated significant achievements in the past five years ... China's Foreign Ministry spokesperson stressed at Thursday's press conference that scientists working at the WIV should be awarded the Nobel Prize in medicine, rather than being blamed for being the first to discover the gene sequence of the novel coronavirus," said a report from Chinese state media."
I don't think anyone is blaming the Wuhan lab for being the "first to discover the gene sequence." I think people are blaming it for the very real possibility that the commie-led lab leaked a virus they may have created.
I think they're blaming them for millions of deaths, hundreds of millions of lost jobs, billions of lost or delayed educations, and untold damage to mental wellbeing and future health outcomes.
Can you believe the gall of China to suggest that they should be awarded a Nobel Prize for what might be the worst manmade disaster of all time, or for the coverup that the totalitarian police state has enjoyed this last year?
Marxism: Patting itself on the back for destroying humanity since 1848!
The story comes as the theory that COVID-19 may have originated in the Wuhan lab gains renewed interest, with scientists acknowledging the early dismissal of the idea may have been premature.
But the Chinese state media report calls the renewed investigation into the Wuhan lab "slander" while hailing it for its quick work in the early days of the outbreak.
In addition to this, state media is reporting that the lab "has been listed as one of the candidates for the 2021 Outstanding Science and Technology Achievement Prize of [the Chinese Academy of Sciences] for its achievement in identifying the COVID-19 pathogeny."
This would be like your neighbor blowing up the street with his meth lab and then being given an award by the mayor a year later. Except in this case, it's a smack in the face to the millions who died of COVID.
Congrats, Chinese government officials, on being the biggest clowns on the planet!
