Lawrence David| Opinion| Ai Fen was the Director of Emergency at Wuhan Central Hospital. We say was, because reports say she has disappeared after being reprimanded for sounding the alarm about COVID-19 in December.
As the outbreak took root, Dr. Fen was the first to suspect the severity of the initial COVID-19 cases. She passed this information on to several MDs in her hospital, eventually reaching Dr. Li Wenliang.
Dr. Li became known as the physician who alerted the world to the threat of the brewing pandemic. As expected in a closed society, the police told Dr. Li to not cause a stir and return to work.
Dr. Li died in February 2020 of COVID-19. He was only 33.
(Breitbart) Dr. Ai Fen, director of emergency management at Wuhan Central Hospital and one of the first doctors to blow the whistle on the coronavirus epidemic at a time when the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was desperate to conceal it, has reportedly vanished.
She began speaking out against the CCP two weeks ago, beginning with an interview that Chinese censors relentlessly suppressed.
Ai’s interview in early March was a courageous indictment of Communist Party leadership for concealing the epidemic, and especially for denying that the Wuhan virus could be transmitted between humans. She said doctors in Wuhan knew the virus could pass between humans weeks before the CCP admitted it to the world, and blamed herself for failing to speak out despite orders to keep quiet.
As with famous and now-deceased whistleblower Dr. Li Wenliang, she was reprimanded for “spreading rumors” when she tried to warn other members of the Wuhan medical community about the emerging epidemic. Ai said Li’s death from the coronavirus was one reason she decided to speak out.
“If I could have known, I would have told everyone, even though I was warned. I have thought many times — if only time could be turned back,” she said. (The U.K. Guardian posted an even more aggressive translation of her remarks: “If I had known what was to happen, I would not have cared about the reprimand. I would have f**king talked about it to whoever, where ever I could”).
In addition to eliminating the doctors who sought to warn the world so that countries could’ve taken steps to mitigate the carnage, China’s communist regime expelled American journalists to conceal their malfeasance… or, worse.
Follow the bouncing ball…
- Dr. Fen disappeared after first being reprimanded after she sounded the alarm about COVID-19 in December.
- It wasn’t until weeks later that the WHO tweeted this reassuring but fallacious message .

Serious question, what good is the WHO if they don’t do their own investigations and instead repeat the words of a communist regime as gospel? If the WHO did conduct its own investigation that may be even worse.
Whatever funding we provide to this politically rancid organization should be withheld until its Director-General Tedros Adhanom corrects the record and places the blame squarely where it belongs.
Until then, Adhanom and the WHO remain complicit in the deaths of tens of thousands of people… so far.
Except for the additional economic impact, how are the facts in this case any different from the liability cases against America’s tobacco companies? The three major U.S. tobacco companies forked over more than $300 million to settle the many lawsuits against them.
Prior knowledge of a deadly condition, deliberate suppression of that information, people died. Worse, China may have also deliberately seeded the disease around the world, or at least in the United States.
As of December 2019, U.S. debt to China was $1.07 trillion. Considering the massive economic consequences of China’s deliberate malfeasance, wiping out that debt would only be a start to making things square.
More than that courts across the globe should be holding the government of China liable for worldwide coronavirus costs.
Does anybody have the cojones to bring a suit similar to the ones brought by the states’ attorneys general against the cigarette producers, against the Chinese government?
