An anonymous Chinese researcher says that the Chinese don’t care about facts, and will continue to divert attention away from the general understanding that the virus came from China.
“I think it is a coordinated effort from (the) Chinese government to control (the) narrative, and paint it as if the outbreak did not originate in China. And I don’t think they will really tolerate any objective study to investigate the origination of this disease.”
Everything is checked before going to the next stage.
“I think the importance is that the international scientific community must realize that any journal or manuscripts from (a) Chinese research institution has kind of been double-checked by the government.”
“It is important for them to know there are extra steps between independent scientific research and final publication,” says the researcher.
