Catherine Yang of The Epoch Times stated on Thursday that while The Epoch Times began publishing reports of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) virus in January 2020, most outlets had yet to pick up on the story because of the CCP’s lockdown on information.
Three months later, over 200 countries and territories have been infected and the CCP virus has caused over 85,000 deaths infecting at least 1.4 million, but information is murkier than ever.
“We’ve pretty much heard every rumor under the sun. We’ve heard every theory, every crazy rumor, we’ve heard all these different narratives,” said Joshua Philipp, award-winning investigative reporter and host of the show “Crossroads.”
The rumors aren’t by accident: The CCP has been actively engaging in a disinformation campaign, and media outlets around the world have parroted the propaganda. As a result, entire nations have been operating under false information as they try to battle the pandemic within their borders.
Philipp and his colleagues at The Epoch Times and NTD Television thought it their responsibility to sift through all the information available, verify it, and put it into one place. The result is the just-premiered documentary “Tracking Down the Origin of the Wuhan Coronavirus,” which is available to watch online.
Less than two days after its premiere, the documentary has around 1.6 million views.
The film “really tries to sift through all of the rumors, all of the truths, all of the falsehoods, and show people as accurate a picture as possible of what really happened and where this virus actually came from,” Philipp said.
In it, Philipp pieces together the development of the virus and includes interviews that shed light on the Chinese regime’s actions and intentions.
Join Epoch Times senior investigative reporter Joshua Philipp as he looks into the origins of the novel coronavirus—the CCP virus.
Philipp’s investigation covers the facts from the Huanan Seafood Market to the Wuhan Institute of Virology. As he digs deeper, he finds suspicious activity connected to China’s communist authorities and their military.
Through the investigation, featuring top scientists and national security experts, a more complete understanding of the situation surrounding the rise of this pandemic is unearthed. Official reports and publicly available information soon lead to more questions and surprising findings.
