COVID-19 Pandemic did not start in China, it began in Bangkok.
The initial outbreak of COVID-19 may have begun in Bangkok in August into September 2019, certainly not in China, among criminal members of various nationalities of a syndicate supplying most wet markets across Asia, and running a few of the larger operations themselves.
These travelling vendors of protected live animals to wet markets had Wuhan on their routes, according to a girlfriend of one of these criminals who has been speaking to FPMag‘s Melissa Hemingway on condition of anonymity. The witness lives in Thailand and claims to be completely innocent of illegal protected animal crimes herself. She has disengaged from the perpetrator she speaks about.
At first the infections were relatively minor and were among young males who reported symptoms of extreme watery discharges from their noses and occasional sneezing and feverish feelings.
Anecdotally, FPMag was told that two persons of the group disappeared, didn’t show up to accept and pay for their animal deliveries, but later in December were reported by family members as dead.
This latter information was given to a corroborating Thai nurse who has a medical relationship with a criminal’s girlfriend. The male person who works for a crime group that supplies illegally obtained wild animals for so-called live-animal-markets.
These markets are prolific around the world and are in most cases illegal but highly lucrative for local officials. The criminal’s girlfriend was met by FPMag’s source nurse who used the explanation of wishing to cure their illness by investigating the mysterious disease that was plaguing their social and business community.
This nurse is the source who inspired the FPMag article Pangolin COVID-19 Pandemic. Since publishing that article, FPMag was able to corroborate the information with another witness close to this crime ring. Additionally, FPMag learned from Australian sources who have been investigating the matter as it pertains to Australian national security, and again there has been some corroboration. In the meantime there have also been threats issued by certain criminal types who seek to protect their lucrative crime. But in the end, even thugs must seek out medical practitioners for their own survival, eventually.
The distress of wild animals as their habitat is destroyed enables the proliferation of their otherwise suppressed virus loads which find other mammals and attache to human cells at very dangerous levels.
Environmentally stressed are the animals these referenced criminals are capturing and selling to the eccentric people who eat them or use their parts as some kind of healing potion that is part of their ancient folklore. Understanding science might be safer to human lives.
Typically bats and pangolins can endure and naturally suppress viruses, but as their environment is encroached upon by human pollution and climate disruption, they become over stressed and vulnerable, hence the exploitive pathogens they carry are rapidly reproducing at colossal rates. Some bats, themselves now threatened, have become incubators and now super spreaders think some scientists. They have been infecting pangolins, research indicates. Pangolins are the world’s most illegally sold and consumed wild animal.
The picture and its story: In this graphic put together by art director Rosa Yamamoto for this FPMag article, Rosa makes it clear using a history of Weibo images going back over eight years, that Chinese social media users have long boasted their ability to obtain and eat pangolins. Are the pangolins distributing the COVID-19 virus?
Climate changes have challenged all mammals in their natural habitat, hence their behaviour is that of distressed species (like bats and pangolins in Vietnam, Thailand, Laos etc and chimpanzees in Gabon and other countries where ebola is an issue) and now humans.
Consequently, pathogenic microbes exploit the vulnerabilities humans created in these distressed species and their massive proliferation causes species spillover, to humans. Microscopic pathogens are programmed to take over all specific mammal cells, like pulmonary ACE-2 cells in humans.
This has led to morbid SARS-like zoonotic disease spread by viruses emerging in humans in the past twenty years.
SARS and MERS were just warnings. SARS-CoV-2 is also just a warning.
Studies of patients with severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) demonstrate that the respiratory tract is a major site of SARS-coronavirus (CoV) infection and disease morbidity. We studied host-pathogen interactions using native lung tissue and a model of well-differentiated cultures of primary human airway epithelia. Angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), the receptor for both the SARS-CoV and the related human respiratory coronavirus NL63, was expressed in human airway epithelia as well as lung parenchyma. As assessed by immunofluorescence staining and membrane biotinylation, ACE2 protein was more abundantly expressed on the apical than the basolateral surface of polarized airway epithelia. Interestingly, ACE2 expression positively correlated with the differentiation state of epithelia. Undifferentiated cells expressing little ACE2 were poorly infected with SARS-CoV, while well-differentiated cells expressing more ACE2 were readily infected. Expression of ACE2 in poorly differentiated epithelia facilitated SARS spike (S) protein-pseudotyped virus entry. Consistent with the expression pattern of ACE2, the entry of SARS-CoV or a lentivirus pseudotyped with SARS-CoV S protein in differentiated epithelia was more efficient when applied to the apical surface. Furthermore, SARS-CoV replicated in polarized epithelia and preferentially exited via the apical surface. The results indicate that infection of human airway epithelia by SARS coronavirus correlates with the state of cell differentiation and ACE2 expression and localization. These findings have implications for understanding disease pathogenesis associated with SARS-CoV and NL63 infections.

America exports its dirtiest manufacturing to China, Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, India, African countries and more, polluting the habitats of many species and changing their climate.
It is rare that anyone in the world hears about this phenomenon. But occasional disasters would have triggered some global action.
The Bhopal disaster, was an industrial gas leak incident on the night of 2–3 December 1984 at the Union Carbide India Limited American pesticide plant in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, India. Over 500,000 people were exposed to methyl isocyanate gas. The highly toxic cloud made its way into and around the small towns located near the plant. According to Wikipedia, “Thousands of people had died by the following morning. Primary causes of deaths were choking, reflexogenic circulatory collapse and pulmonary oedema.”
Despite earlier whitewashing, in 2008, the government of Madhya Pradesh quietly paid compensation to the family members of 3,787 victims killed in the American Industrial accidental gas release, and paid compensation to 574,366 proven-injured victims. That suggests there were over half a million victims America did not care about.
In 2015 the world got together to address these problems with the Paris Climate Change mitigation plan. At first, America admitted its part, but then, in 2017 following Russia’s election interference in America…
On June 1, 2017, American President Donald Trump announced the United States would end its part in the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change mitigation.
Trump alienated the rest of the planet and the storm began. Trump may well be the most despised human in all history. His serious personality disorders have led to enormous uncaring bad decisions that are presently threatening the lives of millions of Americans as America’s Trump government refused to begin a January 2020 COVID-19 testing program for fear it could interfere with Trump’s November 2020 election chances. His recent selfishness that imperils Americans is instructive in understanding why he vacated America from the JCPOA and vacated America from numerous human rights agreements and institutions and of course the The Trans-Pacific Partnership, United Nations cultural organization UNESCO, the United Nations Human Rights Council, and the United Nations’ aid program for Palestinian refugees.
Trump said that “The Paris accord will undermine our economy,” and “put us at a permanent disadvantage,” but in fact it would only stop America from exploiting the people of poor nations.
Americans want to do their polluting in other nations.
This has been threatening all species except coronaviruses which have been growing at an upward spiralling rate.
It has not been easy for Washington to convince American corporations to accept human-friendly standards for their manufacturing operations in developing nations. In fact, Washington looks the other way such that wherever American manufacturers go, America leaves a dangerous, filthy mess.
But America’s Trump administration disingenuously blames this on the world as it continues to send more polluting activities offshore
On 4 November 2019, Michael Pompeo issued a statement saying among other things, “As noted in his June 1, 2017 remarks, President Trump made the decision to withdraw from the Paris (Climate Change mitigation) Agreement because of the unfair economic burden imposed on American workers, businesses, and taxpayers by U.S. pledges made under the Agreement.”
America lowers its domestic pollution by sending its dirtiest manufacturing to low wage countries. Greed in 2017 overwhelmed humanitarian concerns of the early 2000’s and America returned to greedy, murderous practices.
Shocking truth lies in one study conducted in 2017, using data that America itself collects at the US Census Bureau and the American Environmental Protection Agency for trade, production and pollution.
This data applied to more than 8,000 US corporations having 18,000 American-owned factories.
The share of goods America brought back into its homeland that were produced in low-wage countries rose from 7% in 1992 to 23% in 2009 while domestic toxic particulate emissions fell by more than half.
Instead of reducing its carbon footprint, America has moved its cheap, dirty manufacturing to poor countries with bribery, lies, deceptions and broken promises. Descendents of those malignancies are poor workers falling ill, succumbing to early deaths, as their environment goes to hell.
According to the data and sources close to the 2017 study group, “the dirty industrials that experienced the greatest increase in imports from low-wage countries include printing, apparel and textile, furniture and rubber and plastics. These industries also experienced some of the largest drops in air pollution in the United States.”
China, Malaysia, Mexico, Brazil, Vietnam and Indonesia are where America has set up its dirtiest manufacturing facilities over the past many decades during times when local laws in these countries were lax. That must now change, because as Karinna Angeles, a nurse practitioner in the Philippines says, “Human life is more important than money or cheap manufacturing”.
“If America’s dirtiest manufacturers kill the people, nobody will by their product, obviously. But it also demonstrates a very lax attitude toward murder; a low value for human life, especially Asians; and a cavalier attitude toward ordinary Americans who must shoulder the blame while the billionaires get richer,” the Asian nurse firmly adduces.
“In offshore plants where US manufacturing raises pollution indices past 50µg/m³,” says the nurse, the preponderance of chronic respiratory disease, cancer and coronary challenges indicate a dire threat to human existence and violation of human rights.
“This is why America fled the Paris Climate Accord because it loses its chance for cheap manufacturing in developing nations,” continues Karinna.
“We are seeing lung damage concomitant with enlarged hearts in the medical diagnostic imaging of both young and middle-aged workers at American-owned manufacturing facilities located in the poorer countries of Asia,” she added.
Theory: Climate Change challenges all mammals in their habitat, hence their behaviour is that of distressed species. Pathogenic microbes exploit the vulnerabilities and their massive proliferation causes species spillover.
Climate change is very real, despite Donald Trump’s and Michael Pompeo’s outrageously unrealistic denials. Even the International Monetary Fund agrees these men are very wrong.
IMF’s Amit Prakash says, “Average temperatures in Southeast Asia have risen every decade since 1960. Vietnam, Myanmar, the Philippines, and Thailand are among 10 countries in the world most affected by climate change in the past 20 years, according to the Global Climate Risk Index (pdf) compiled by Germanwatch, an environmental group. The World Bank counts Vietnam among five countries most likely to be affected by global warming in the future.
“The economic impact could be devastating. The Asian Development Bank (ADB) estimates Southeast Asia could suffer bigger losses than most regions in the world. Unchecked, climate change could shave 11 percent off the region’s GDP by the end of the century as it takes a toll on key sectors such as agriculture, tourism, and fishing—along with human health and labor productivity—the ADB estimated in a 2015 report (pdf). That’s far more than its 2009 estimate of a 6.7 percent reduction.
“The region could shift to a “new climate regime” by the end of the century, when the coolest summer months would be warmer than the hottest summer months in the period from 1951 to 1980, says a 2017 study (pdf) by the ADB and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. In the absence of technical breakthroughs, rice yields in Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam could drop by as much as 50 percent by 2100 from 1990 levels. Hotter weather is also pushing tropical diseases such as malaria and dengue fever northward to countries like Lao P.D.R., where they were formerly less prevalent,” says Amit Prakash of the International Monetary Fund
“America is a country the world needs to hold to account for its crimes leading to deleterious climate change, because America sends its filthiest polluters to do its dirtiest manufacturing in developing nations where workers would do anything for work,” says Michele Francis, a medical worker in the once-beautiful Amazon Basin of Venezuela where American pollution has badly damaged the environment.
“America exploits workers in developing nations. They earn less than $200 a month; make no demands for workers’ rights; and go home and breath the toxic particulate pumped into the air by their workplace,” the humanitarian adds.
In the Philippines, in mid 2018, Filipino fishermen wanted the United States charged for the billions of plastic bottles it knew were bad for the environment but kept manufacturing in polluting factories all around the world.
Sonny Malubag, a Filipino fisherman, said that the production of single-use plastic should be minimized, if not eradicated altogether to help restore the health of Manila Bay and oceans in other parts of the world.
“All our livelihoods are affected by plastic pollution in the ocean,” said Sonny Malubag who lives near Manila and fishes in the West Philippine Sea .
Mr. Malubag wants compensation from the producers of Coca-Cola bottles he finds in his nets instead of fish and the plastic particles he finds in fish instead of food.
According to Sharon Lerner writing for The Intercept in October of 2019, Anerica’s “Coca-Cola was found for the second year in a row to be the most polluting brand in a global audit of plastic trash conducted by the Break Free From Plastic global movement. The giant American company was responsible for more plastic litter than the next top three polluters combined.”
Mr. Malubag’s assertion proved correct by environmental audit.
The Break Free from Plastic Movement, is an environmental group comprising
- Ecowaste Coalition,
- Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives (GAIA) and
- Health Care Without Harm, and
- Mother Earth Foundation.
That group, in 2017, first conducted a week-long waste audit at Freedom Island in the Philippines.
Greenpeace Philippines also contributed.
The research of this large group of environmental heroes found that one-time-use plastic containers manufactured by multinational firms Nestle, Procter & Gamble, and Unilever were the biggest contributors to Manila Bay’s mounting garbage problem. (That is why Filipino fishermen say “America should compensate us for ous lost catch,” which was once plentiful for their fathers and grandfathers.)
What has America’s environmental destruction in Asia got to do with the COVID-19 and zoonotic disease?
Researchers at both the Swansea University and the University of Queensland in Australia have been evaluating and confirmed various regional global environments as good examples to better understand the pervasive opportunities for zoonotic diseases (animal-to-human diseases) to interact with and infect new species, including humans.
This could include the transfer of viruses from the horseshoe bat and the Pangolin as one example, to humans, hence the SARS-CoV-2 is allegedly such a case.
Meet the Pangolin, a harmless, docile, shy, nocturnal, endangered, scaly mammal from Asia. It is suspected that the COVID-19 virus chain of infection included the Pangolin, the most traded wild animal on the protected species list. Public Domain Photograph.

SARS-CoV-2 has been previously seen in most of its genome as bat-SL-CoVZC45 and bat-SL-CoVZXC21, the original COVID-19
“Bats have been known as repositories of a wide range of viruses, among other things. Two of them are a close match to the SARS-CoV-2 virus which is somewhat evolved since transferring to human mammals.” See: Americans must rely on their State in this COVID-19 crisis. Don’t chase myths, not even those of your President.
Habitat encroachment of all mammals is giving rise and greater dominance to microscopic pathogens that are now starting to win dominance against all mammals, including humans. The irony is that the novel coronavirus is destroying many of its own hosts, apparently the most vulnerable, but has yet to be proven, and yet it cannot exist without the hosts it kills. Yes, it is a potential species end game for all mammals. The virus will likely find other, less easily targeted living cells, or die itself.
Unlike what Trump is saying with his ethnically charged monikers, this pandemic is something he played a huge role in creating, more so than any other animal.
In the USA and Canada it is time to lock down. Look at the numbers at nwob.org/cov/.
North America is screaming up the chart of the most SARS-CoV-2 infected nations on Earth. These are up to 90%+ community spread cases in some regions and that is the most dangerous situation. You are on the precipice of a disaster if you do not follow simple #Isolation14 directives. Stay home, sleep plenty, exercise an hour daily, drink plenty of water, eat balanced meals & stay clean.
Isolate 14 Days
Clean your house. Wash with soap all surfaces. Clean your hands constantly, that is before you touch anything, and after you touch anything. Do not engage with any person outside your family and isolate those of your family who are sick and under your care.
