The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) announced to the world it would end its lockdown of Wuhan, the epicenter of the new coronavirus, on April 8. Yet, when the date arrived, the regime only partially reopened the city. Locals are now saying that the “opening up” of Wuhan has only applied to people traveling for work, and that entire residential compounds are being locked down with each new case of infection.
Human rights abuses in China have also continued despite the spread of the coronavirus, the CCP Virus. In March, alone, there were 747 recorded cases where practitioners of the spiritual practice Falun Gong were abducted or harassed by CCP authorities. The Epoch Times also received new leaked documents on the 610 Office, an extrajudicial police force compared to the “Gestapo,” that show its agents are able to override local governments and even engaged in “diplomatic affairs” to export the regime’s human rights abuses.
And the Chinese regime was exposed in the United States and in Germany for attempting to have government officials promote its propaganda on its virus response. Wisconsin Senate President Roger Smith exposed these efforts by publicly releasing documents sent to him by the Chinese consulate in Chicago, and issued a proclamation condemning the CCP’s human rights abuses and cover-up of the virus. Similar cases were exposed in Germany.
