  1. Where did the epidemic/pandemic start?
    When did it start?
    Why did china gag the doctor who reported it first? Why a cover-up initially?
    Knowing the severity of the infection, why did china allow international travel?
    Answers to these questions lead to one conclusion- IT STARTED IN CHINA, AND THEY MISLED THE WORLD AND WHO. Now they are trying to brush it under the carpet. NOTHING WRONG IN CALLING IT CHINA VIRUS OR WUHAN VIRUS.
