According to Chinese Communist Party (CCP) authorities, Hong Kong is not having a good time in terms of health. While its health system is in turmoil due to the number of people confined in hospitals after having tested positive with the CCP virus, now a new alarm has been raised after more than 70 cases of malaria have been confirmed.
The situation became even more drastic and of international importance after one of the people who contracted the disease, a 52-year-old man, died while completing his quarantine in a hotel after returning from a trip to Africa, reported the Hong Kong Free Press.
The remaining people were sent to various public hospitals, four of whom are in the Intensive Care Unit in serious condition, while the others have stabilized.
The Center for Health Protection (CHP) stressed its concern over the matter and confirmed that they are closely studying each of the confirmed cases with the mosquito-borne infectious disease.
According to statements made by the health agency, at least 21 of the confirmed cases are people who had been in Guinea, Africa.
The companions of these patients have been placed under medical surveillance, CHP said, adding that those with symptoms would be sent to hospitals for testing.
While the number of confirmed cases is 77, the reality is there could be many, many more. These were detected after health authorities decided to randomly test 100 passengers who were in quarantine after returning from different parts of Africa. To the surprise of professionals, the vast majority of those tested were found to be positive.
Dr. Lau Ka-hin, head of the Hong Kong Hospital Authority, expressed his deep concern upon confirming the increase in the number of cases detected. He hinted that the situation could put further pressure on public hospitals, which are already stretched to the limit by the number of people serving quarantines for CCP virus infections.
“An increase in the number of hospitalized patients will put pressure on the entire medical system,” Lau Ka-hin said.
Distrust in the communist regime’s health system has hit all-time highs with its handling of the pandemic, more linked to its perverse political objectives than to curbing the disease.
There is still uncertainty as to whether the malaria issue is being used politically by the CCP to impose more fear on the population and generate more restrictions, or on the contrary, they are minimizing the seriousness of the situation for fear that it has gotten out of hand.
Why might the authorities be concerned about malaria cases?
Malaria is a serious disease with a high mortality rate. It is transmitted to humans through the bite of a mosquito infected with one of the four malaria blood parasites of the genus plasmodium.
While malaria is not transmitted directly from human to human, the spread of the disease is feasible because a specific mosquito that bites an infected person automatically acquires the parasites and becomes a transmitter of the infection.
The most common symptoms include very high fevers, headache, vomiting, and in some cases, can progress to jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes), anemia, clotting defects, central nervous system disorders, and death.
The disease can be cured, but its treatment depends on the specific parasite of infection, which often changes according to the geographical area. It is therefore extremely important that health authorities conduct a proper investigation before treating infected patients to determine where they contracted the disease and how to correctly treat them according to the variant they have.
One year ago China was declared malaria-free by WHO
Interestingly, on June 30, 2021, the World Health Organization (WHO) issued an official statement certifying that the Republic of China was a malaria-free country.
This “award” by the WHO resulted in a remarkable milestone that the CCP publicized. Malaria has a history that left deep scars in ancient China. According to historical records the disease has prevailed for the last 3,000 years generating millions of deaths during especially notorious periods.
After the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949, the communist regime set a strong agenda to control much of the infectious diseases. The CCP especially highlighted its supposed achievements with regard to malaria. However it seems that the tranquility only lasted a few months, after obtaining WHO certification, cases are skyrocketing.
In 2010 the CCP started a total malaria eradication program. In 2016 it published the last malaria case. Five years later the WHO declared the entire giant national territory malaria-free. How did China become a malaria-free country in such a short time? This is a question that worries especially those who distrust the word of the communist regime.
Transgenic mosquitoes to fight malaria? Strong criticism of Bill Gates’s project
Malaria is a disease that has caused much damage for decades not only in China but also in much of the world, especially in tropical areas with high humidity.
According to the WHO during 2020 627,000 died from malaria, 12% more than during 2019. Most of these deaths were recorded in Africa.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, known for investing in controversial experiments generally in very impoverished populations such as some of the African nations, in 2018 aroused strong controversy after partnering with the British company Oxitec, to develop genetically engineered mosquitoes to eradicate malaria.
This controversial initiative is part of the Gates Foundation’s global plan to eradicate malaria “within a generation.”
Since 2000, Gates has invested more than $2 billion to combat malaria, but far from the announced goals. Since 2015 positive cases of malaria have continued to increase worldwide.
These genetically modified mosquitoes are male Aedes aegypti specimens that carry a “self-limiting” gene. According to Oxitec, when the mosquitoes mate with wild females, their offspring inherit a copy of this gene, which will kill them before they reach adulthood. Because the offspring do not mature to reproduce, a reduction in the population of these mosquitoes is expected, without knowing for sure the consequences of this intervention in nature.
Regardless of the results of this controversial experiment, what is undeniable is that malaria continues to be present in the world, as it has been for thousands of years. The CCP claims to have worked to eradicate it to such an extent that it has managed to get the WHO to classify the country as malaria-free. It is worth noting that the WHO has been heavily criticized for covering up the origins of the CCP virus in China and has been repeatedly accused of defending the political interests of the communist regime.
Did the CCP really succeed in eradicating the disease and are these dozens of detected cases just a mere coincidence of travelers who contracted the parasite abroad?
Is the regime covering up a much more severe situation, and are there many more infected? Or, on the contrary, could it be that the situation is not so serious and they are only trying to spread more terror with infectious diseases and circulating viruses so that the population remains numb and locked in their homes?
All these options are feasible under the Chinese communist regime. Only time will tell the truth.
