It is exactly that.

Dr Frank Plummer died in Nairobi in February of a heart attack, a not-uncommon result of years of battling alcoholism, for which he underwent experimental brain surgery last year. I suppose just because it happened in darkest Africa it’s fair game, since no-one will bother to investigate. A great man who will long be remembered for his essential contributions to our understanding of HIV. How sad for his family that his tragic death should be mixed up in a rather tawdry conspiracy theory that doesn’t even get its basic facts right - the Canadians were working with MERS, one of the corona viruses, only a distant cousin to SARS-CoV2.

This looks like a typical piece of conspiracy theory—combining anecdotes of varying origin into one vague accusation. I note the so-called Frank Plummer assassination involves HIV, which it claims, falsely, I believe, is a Coronavirus.

Secret History of Coronavirus


The Saudi SARS Sample <> 

On June 13, 2012 a 60-year-old Saudi man was admitted to a private hospital in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, with a 7-day history of fever, cough, expectoration, and shortness of breath. He had no history of cardiopulmonary or renal disease, was receiving no long-term medications, and did not smoke.

The Canadian Lab <> 

On May 4, 2013, a sample of this Saudi SARS <>  (aka novel Coronavirus) from the very first infected Saudi patient arrived in Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory <>  in Winnipeg via Ron Fouchier of Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, Netherlands who sequenced the virus sample.

Chinese Biological Espionage <> 

In March 2019, in mysterious event a shipment of exceptionally virulent viruses from Canada’s NML ended up in China <> . The event caused a major scandal with Bio-warfare experts questioning why Canada was sending lethal viruses to China <> .

Four months later in July 2019, a group of Chinese virologists were forcibly dispatched from the Canadian lab <>  – the only level-4 facility eqquipped to handle the world’s deadliest diseases where Coronavirus sample from the first Saudi patient was being examined.

Xiangguo Qiu <> 

The scientist who was escorted out of the Canadian lab <>  along with members of her research team is believed to be a Chinese Bio-Warfare agent Xiangguo Qiu <> .

Dr. Xiangguo Qiu <>  is married to another Chinese scientist Dr. Keding Cheng – thhe couple is responsible for infiltrating Canada’s NML with many Chinese agents posing as students from a range of Chinese scientific facilities directly tied to China’s Biological Warfare Program <> .

Dr. Xiangguo Qiu <>  made at least five trips to the Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory located only 20 miles away from the Huanan Seafood Market which is the epicenter of the outbreak.

The Canadian investigation <>  is ongoing and questions remain whether previous shipments to China of other viruses or other essential preparations, took place from 2006 to 2018, one way or another.

Frank Plummer Assassination <> 

Meanwhile, in a very strange turn of events, renowned scientist Frank Plummer <>  who received Saudi SARS Coronavirus sample and was working on Coronavirus (HIV) vaccine in the Winnipeg based Canadian lab from where the virus was smuggled by Chinese Biowarfare agents <>  has died in mysterious conditions in Nairobi, Kenya.

Scholars or Spies

The Thousand Talents Plan or Thousand Talents Program <>  was established in 2008 by the central government of China to recognize and recruit leading international experts in scientific research, innovation, and entrepreneurship – in otther words to steal western technology.

Weaponizing Biotech <> 

China’s national strategy of military-civil fusion has highlighted biology as a priority <> , and the People’s Liberation Army could be at the forefront of expanding and exploiting this knowledge. Chinese military’s interest in biology as an emerging domain of warfare is guided by strategists who talk about potential “genetic weapons” and the possibility of a “bloodless victory.”
