The situation in China is not just life threatening but even liberty threatening. While one can certainly understand a quarantine considering what is occurring over the coronavirus, some of this is downright frightening. Not only are the Communists coming and arresting people who simply film or photograph those who are becoming sick, but they are dragging people from their homes under the suspicion that they are infected and sent off to “mass quarantine camps.”
With no transparency from China, it makes one consider whether some of this is a thinly veiled disguise for something more sinister, but I’ll allow the reader to come to their own conclusions.
First up is an article from Natural News.
JD Heyes writes:
We’ve told you before that news and information coming into and out of China is tightly controlled by the Communist government in Beijing, so there is very little “rogue journalism” that takes place.
With that in mind, the Chinese government is really sensitive about bad news getting out as well as any information that makes Communist leaders look bad or incompetent.
As such, it’s been really tough to trust anything Beijing has said in regards to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. “Official” reports stating the number of sick and dead have to be looked at with skepticism because all information is tightly regulated.
Plus, almost on a daily basis now we see reports from trusted media sources that make us even more skeptical of what the Chinese government is telling the world regarding the virus’ spread.
As The Epoch Times reported earlier this week, a ‘citizen journalist’ from Wuhan, the city where the coronavirus epidemic began, was paid a visit by Chinese police after documenting something they didn’t want him to see or broadcast:
For days on end, [Fang Bin] had been driving around the town, documenting every step of the way with his phone to show the life in a now locked-down city.
On the morning of Feb. 1 alone, he had visited five hospitals where doctors hustled about in the packed halls and frantic patients groaned and sobbed. At the fifth hospital, he counted eight dead bodies from a funeral van, all within the five minutes after he arrived at the hospital. Inside, a sick man moaned and gasped for breath by the bedside of his father, who had already turned lifeless. Fang uploaded all of these moments to the internet.
About 7 p.m. local time, six masked men wearing HAZMAT gear visited him and demanded to take his temperature.
“You’ve been to dangerous places,” one of them said to him. “We have to find out whether you are infected or not.”
‘There should only be one voice’
The men claimed to be on-duty medical officers and that he was a “hazard” to others because he visited hospitals were patients sickened by the coronavirus were being treated. They broke into his home and ignored his repeated protests that he had no temperature — that he was fine.
But the half-dozen men weren’t there for him, per se; they were there to confiscate a laptop computer, a desktop computer, and his cellphone. And before long, Fang found himself at a police station, The Epoch Times reported.
Police interrogators accused him of “igniting a nuclear bomb” with images and video he reportedly uploaded to social media. He was accused of taking more from “foreign forces” before they threatened to keep him in quarantine for “creating fear” (yes, that’s a real crime thing in China, apparently).
“There should only be one voice, otherwise it will create chaos,” police told Fang.
In other words, only the government should be speaking to the world about the coronavirus China has unleashed on the world; that way, the propaganda can be carefully crafted and unchallenged.
Eventually, Fang was released and was given back his phone. But clearly, what happened to him was a warning: Don’t be uploading the truth to the Internet or it’s likely you’ll ‘disappear’ somewhere for a while, and maybe permanently.
In a post Feb. 3, he told followers that he had received thousands of friend requests on WeChat, a popular Chinese messaging platform (that is, of course, closely monitored by the government). It took him hours to respond to all of them, he said, noting that the Chinese state-run media warned of serious consequences for anyone who “spread rumors” about the virus.
It all smacks of dishonesty, of course, and it’s no wonder why the Chinese government simply cannot be trusted to be honest about the pandemic spreading throughout the country and beyond.
Second, Michael Snyder adds:
How would you like to be dragged out of your home and shipped off to a camp? Sadly, that is what is happening to countless numbers of Chinese citizens right now. Anyone that is sick or anyone that has been in contact with anyone that is sick is being rounded up and sent to a “mass quarantine camp”. In some cases, people are literally being dragged out of their homes kicking and screaming. If this virus was only about as dangerous as the common flu, China would not be resorting to such draconian measures. Of course once someone gets sent to a camp where they are surrounded by hordes of others that are already infected, it is inevitable that person will become infected too. So in a lot of cases, getting shipped off to one of these “mass quarantine camps” will essentially be a death sentence.
At first, Chinese authorities were literally locking sick people into their own homes, but apparently they did not feel that was being effective enough.
So now the communist Chinese government has ordered local officials in Wuhan “to round up all suspected coronavirus patients” and confine them in camps…
CHINA’S CENTRAL GOVERNMENT HAS ORDERED WUHAN TO ROUND UP ALL SUSPECTED CORONAVIRUS PATIENTS AS WELL AS THEIR CLOSE CONTACTS IN MASS QUARANTINE CAMPS.
Needless to say, most people are not going to come forward and willingly volunteer to go to the camps.
So local officials will be conducting “door-to-door home searches” in order to find those that are ill…
CHINESE AUTHORITIES IN WUHAN THURSDAY SAID THAT THEY WILL CONDUCT DOOR-TO-DOOR HOME SEARCHES FOR PEOPLE POTENTIALLY INFECTED WITH THE 2019 NOVEL CORONAVIRUS (2019-NCOV) AND CORRAL THE SICK INTO MASSIVE, MAKESHIFT QUARANTINE CAMPS AROUND THE CITY, ACCORDING TO A REPORT IN THE NEW YORK TIMES.
THESE LATEST EXTREME OUTBREAK CONTROL MEASURES ARE ON TOP OF ALREADY DRACONIAN TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS AND SHUTDOWNS OF PUBLIC TRANSIT, WHICH HAVE EFFECTIVELY ISOLATED WUHAN—A CITY OF 11 MILLION WHERE THE EXPLOSIVE OUTBREAK BEGAN—AS WELL AS OTHER HIGHLY POPULATED CITIES IN THE HUBEI PROVINCE. OVERALL, THE LOCKDOWN HAS MADE IT DIFFICULT TO GET FOOD AND SUPPLIES TO HUBEI’S 50 MILLION RESIDENTS, CONTRIBUTING TO A HUMANITARIAN CRISIS THAT IS NOW SWELLING FROM WUHAN IN THE WAKE OF THE VIRUS.
Vice Premier Sun Chunlan is in charge of the nationwide response to this virus, and she has identified four categories of people that need to be taken to the camps…
MS SUN DEMANDED FOUR TYPES OF PEOPLE IN WUHAN BE PUT INTO MANDATORY ISOLATION IN QUARANTINE STATIONS: CONFIRMED CASES, SUSPECTED CASES, PEOPLE WHO HAVE CLOSE CONTACT WITH THE FORMER TWO, AND THOSE WHO HAVE FEVER.
MS SUN CALLED ON A ‘PEOPLE’S WAR’ AGAINST THE CORONAVIRUS EPIDEMIC IN A MEETING ON TUESDAY.
Of course, just about anyone could potentially fit into one of those four categories.
Without any opportunity to appeal the decision, many will likely end up getting dragged away without ever being sick in the first place.
At this point, a state of martial law essentially exists in much of China, and that is going to be the case for the foreseeable future.
Sadly, grouping all of the sickest people together in one large facility is not going to help them recover. In fact, it is quite likely to make them even sicker…
MOREOVER, EXPERTS FEAR THAT PENNING POTENTIALLY INFECTED PEOPLE IN LARGE QUARANTINE CAMPS—SET UP IN A SPORTS STADIUM, AN EXHIBITION CENTER, AND A BUILDING COMPLEX—WITH MINIMAL MEDICAL CARE COULD MAKE THE SICK SICKER AND LET THE WHOLE GAMUT OF INFECTIOUS DISEASES RUN RAMPANT AMONG THE CONFINED PEOPLE.
But at this point, Chinese officials are apparently willing to sacrifice them for “the greater good”.
There have already been numerous videos posted on social media that show Chinese citizens trying to escape from officials that have come to round them up.
In one, a man literally sprints away from local officials with “large metal sticks” that are trying to corral him…
THE CLIP, BELIEVED TO BE TAKEN IN CHANGQING GARDEN, WUHAN, SHOWS A GROUP OF OFFICIALS APPROACHING THE MAN WHO WHO IS BACKED UP AGAINST A WALL.
THE MAN SUDDENLY STARTS RUNNING AWAY FROM THE OFFICIALS WHO RAPIDLY PURSUE HIM.
SOME OFFICIALS APPEAR TO BE CARRYING LARGE METAL STICKS AS THEY RUN AFTER HIM ALONG NEARLY-DESERTED STREETS.
I certainly can’t blame him for running away.
If any of us were in a similar situation, we would probably do the exact same thing.
Many of those that enter these camps will never come out alive again, and so this is truly a matter of life or death for a lot of people.
On top of everything else, it is now being reported that Chinese citizens could potentially face “life in prison or even the death penalty” if they fail to report “recent travel to Wuhan”…
A RECENT TWEET FROM A CHINESE ADVOCACY GROUP KNOWN AS HIMALAYA GLOBAL EERILY WARNS THAT THE COMMUNIST CHINESE GOVERNMENT IS BEGINNING TO IMPOSE HARSH NEW PENALTIES FOR CHINESE PEOPLE WHO FAIL TO REPORT RECENT TRAVEL TO WUHAN, THE EPICENTER OF THE NOVEL CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK.
THE VIDEO ANNOUNCEMENT WAS MADE BY A CHINESE JUDGE WHO EXPLAINS THAT ALL RECENT TRAVELERS FROM WUHAN MUST NOW REPORT TO THE APPROPRIATE AUTHORITIES OR ELSE BE GUILTY OF ENDANGERING PUBLIC SAFETY. AT A MINIMUM, VIOLATORS COULD FACE UP TO 10 YEARS IN PRISON. AT A MAXIMUM, THEY COULD FACE LIFE IN PRISON OR EVEN THE DEATH PENALTY.
We have never seen China take such extreme measures before.
So many people in the western world are comparing this coronavirus outbreak to the common flu and are telling us that we don’t have anything to worry about.
If that is true, then why is the Chinese government getting so crazy about this virus?
There seems to be quite a bit that they are not telling us, and a lot of people are extremely skeptical that the official numbers that they are giving us are accurate.
We have seen video after video that shows people literally dropping dead on the streets of Wuhan, and the crematoriums in the city have been burning bodies 24 hours a day. In fact, massively elevated levels of sulfur dioxide above Wuhan are creating quite a stir on social media. As IntelWave has pointed out, the burning of organic matter produces sulfur dioxide gas. Could this be evidence that the death toll is far higher than we are being told?
Data from https://t.co/oDMad8pquE shows a massive release of sulfur dioxide gas from the outskirts of Wuhan, commonly associated with the burning of organic matters. Levels are elevated, even compared with the rest of China. pic.twitter.com/XgBfJd7dDS

Let us pray that this virus does not start spreading widely in the western world, because some of the exact same things that are now happening in China could start happening here.
Our society is rapidly approaching a major tipping point, and this virus could be a factor in pushing us over the edge.
Whether this virus becomes a true global pandemic or not, I would encourage everyone to use this time to prepare, because I have a feeling that the rest of this year is only going to get even crazier.
