During the month of March, propaganda agents of Chinese origin spread plenty of misinformation about the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) to the point that needless fear and panic spread quickly across the country, according to United States intelligence officials.
These communist Chinese operatives reportedly engaged in a coordinated campaign to amplify misinformation messaging about the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), which was apparently so effective that the White House National Security Council was forced to issue and announcement declaring it all to be “fake.”
Six anonymous U.S. intelligence officials from six different intelligence agencies allegedly told The New York Times that Chinese agents were busy spreading lies about a national lockdown that was supposedly “imminent” back in mid-March. But as we know, President Donald Trump never actually issued a national lockdown.
“Please be advised that within 48 to 72 hours the president will evoke what is called the Stafford Act,” one of the fake messages supposedly stated, pretending to be from a top White House official who was supposedly in the know about what was about to happen.
“Just got off the phone with some of my military friends up in D.C. who just got out of a two-hour briefing,” this fake message went on to state. “The president will order a two-week mandatory quarantine for the nation. Stock up on whatever you guys need to make sure you have a two-week supply of everything. Please forward to your network.”
This message and others ended up spreading on social media, sparking panic among some who rushed out to fill their pantries with storable goods. However, as we now know, the whole thing was fake, and no national quarantine was ever ordered at the federal level.
Listen below to The Health Ranger Report as Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, warns about how a nationwide quarantine would actually end up being nationwide death camps:
These same unidentified U.S. intelligence officials further told the Times that communist China lied about a supposed Department of Homeland Security (DHS) plan to put military troops in place all across the country “to help prevent looters and rioters.”
This fake message was sent alongside the others warning about a Trump-imposed national lockdown, which was supposedly contingent upon these troops first being put in their assigned locations. But this, too, was not true and never actually happened, though troop movement has reportedly been observed in some parts of the country.
The Chinese agents responsible for this fake news blitz used both text messages and encrypted messaging apps like WhatsApp to deliver this false information. These mediums are much more difficult to trace than social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter.
Because so many people received these fake messages on their phones back in mid-March, the National Security Council (NSC) tweeted a public message stating that no national quarantine or lockdown was coming, and that all of the latest guidance protocols for the pandemic would be coming from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Two of the U.S. officials, however, stated to the Times that they do not believe that these fake messages were actually created by Chinese agents, but rather amplified and spread further by them. As to the true origins of the messages, the officials reportedly did not specify.
Communist China, meanwhile, has vehemently denied that it played any role in the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) disinformation campaign. The regime told the Times that “the relevant statements are complete nonsense and not worth refuting.”
