1. Xi Jinping made important instructions for the PLA requesting them to do an excellent job in epidemic prevention and control work and stressed that the PLA should firmly keep in mind their original missions, bear the responsibility with courage and make contributions to winning the battle in epidemic prevention and control

Xinhua news agency, Beijing, January 29, the CCP Central Committee general secretary, chairman of the state, the Central Military Commission President Xi Jinping recently made important instructions to the PLA  requesting them to do a good job in the prevention and control of novel coronavirus.

Xi Jinping pointed out that after the outbreak of pneumonia caused by a new type of coronavirus infection in Wuhan municipality and other areas of Hubei province, our military resolutely implemented the decision of the CCP Central Committee and quickly started the mechanism of joint prevention and control work. Emergency goods have been sent to the front line of the epidemic prevention.

Xi Jinping stressed that the current situation of epidemic prevention and control is still grim and complicated. Under the unified command of the CCP Central Committee and the Central Military Commission, the whole army should keep in mind the purpose of the PLA,  resolutely implement the commands, carry out their responsibilities, prepare to fight a tough battle and actively support epidemic prevention and control in the infected areas. Huoshenshan Hospital (or “mountain Vulcan”), which is under construction, is a makeshift hospital dedicated to treating patients infected with the novel coronavirus. Xi Jinping also ordered military hospitals engaged in the epidemic control to treat patients with all-out efforts and military research institutions to step up scientific research to contribute to winning the battle against the epidemic.


Is this news another piece of “covert propaganda” to improve CCP’s popularity and reinforce people’s belief into the “self-boasted advantage” of CCP’s regime marked by “being able to concentrate forces on major tasks”? However, according to Lude, who has witnessed the disregard for life and dereliction of duty of PLA officers and soldiers during the Wen Chuan Earthquake in 2008, it is hoped that CCP Kleptocrats do not turn this CCP-made humanitarian crisis into a platform for gesture politics! God Bless people in the infected area!

2. To build a tight “line of defense” among people

Fighting the epidemic is a national action, and the masses are the main force in this struggle. “Grass-roots party organizations and the party members ought to play the role of Battle Fortress and vanguard, widely mobilize the masses, organize the masses, gather the masses, resolutely implement the joint control measures and build a tight line of defense among the people.” A few days ago, General Secretary Xi Jinping made important instructions and pointed out a direction and a path for our battle in the epidemic prevention and control. The new coronavirus threatens everyone’s health, there are no bystanders in front of the epidemic, we are in the critical moment for the prevention and control of this virus. To build the tight defense of “group” prevention and control, it is necessary to give full play to the role of the fighting fortress of the grass-roots party organizations and the role of vanguard of the Communist Party members. Under the strong leadership of the CCP Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core, we shall give full play to the superiority of the socialist system with Chinese characteristics, closely rely on the masses, and build the tight defense among the people. We have full confidence and the ability to win the battle in epidemic prevention and control.


What does “line of defense” mean here? Does it mean that the CCP will block the entire infected area to prevent the virus from spreading outside? This reminds me of CCP’s crime during the “Chinese Great Famine” in the 1950s. During that time, with the collapse of People’s commune and the shortage of food that came after, the CCP blocked the roads to the city, arrested, and sometimes even shot the starving rural-area-residents looking for food in the city. 30 million Chinese people died from CCP’s brutal measures and made this famine one of the most horrible CCP-made-humanitarian crises in human history. Will this happen again to people in Hubei again? Will CCP fight this CCP-made humanitarian crisis in our time through “propaganda” (which means the CCP pretend to fight against this virus but turn into a platform for gesture politics)  meanwhile let 60 million people in Hubei die from starving and lack of medicine? I dare not to think about it. Please help the people in Hubei! They are 60 million lives! We can not let the worst scenario to happen!

3. Li Keqiang presided over the meeting of a leading group of the CCP Central Committee on the prevention and control of the novel coronavirus outbreak, Wang Huning and others participated

On January 29, a member of the Standing Committee of the Politburo of the CCP Central Committee, premier of the State Council, the central government to deal with the epidemic of new type of coronavirus infection of pneumonia leading group leader Li Keqiang presided over the convening of the leading group meeting, further study of epidemic prevention and control situation, Wang Huning, member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and deputy head of the leading group of the Central Committee to deal with the epidemic of pneumonia caused by the new type of coronavirus infection, attended the meeting.

The meeting pointed out that on January 27, General Secretary Xi Jinping made important instructions on party organizations at all levels and the majority of party members and cadres, urging them to play an active role in the battle against the epidemic prevention and control. In response to this, a special notice had been issued by the CCP Central Committee. Currently, we are pushing forward our work in the epidemic prevention and control; we are also enhancing our efforts; however, the epidemic is still in the proliferation stage, rapid infection cases have been spotted in some local areas, the situation is complex and severe.

The party committees and governments at all levels must resolutely implement the important instructions of General Secretary Xi Jinping and the spirit of this special notice. They should keep in the interests of the people are above all, fully implement the CCP Central Committee’s requirements marked by “steadfastness, solidarity, scientific prevention and control, and precise measures” and do their best to take more scientific and thorough measures to curb the spread of the epidemic. The meeting stressed that the work concerning the epidemic prevention and control ought to be arranged carefully. The meeting pointed out that we should do our utmost to guarantee the supply of medical resources; meanwhile, key resources ought to be spent wisely.  The meeting pointed out that epidemic prevention and control work should be extended to migrant workers returning to the city after the holiday.

The meeting demanded that under the guidance of leading group of the CCP Central Committee on the prevention and control of the novel coronavirus outbreak, the State Council should improve the Daily regular meeting System, discuss the situation on the development of the epidemic, guide and urge the local authorities to strengthen their work on prevention and control, establish a national unified control system for allocating materials for epidemic prevention and control, resolve the urgent problems encountered our work, coordinate and dispatch the necessary medical personnel for prevention and control, medical materials for medical use and the necessities of life of the residents promptly, and increase the import of related materials in an orderly manner, to ensure that the prevention and control work is carried out vigorously and scientifically. 

Leading group members Ding Xuexiang, Huang Kunming, Cai Qi, Wang Yi, Xiao Jie, Zhao Kezhi, and relevant experts attended the meeting.


If you take a look at the participants of this meeting, you will probably get everything: Huang Kunming is minister of Department of Propaganda while Zhao Kezhi is minister of Public Security, now you see, probably this will be their final solution: set all propaganda machines into motion to distort truth and improve the popularity of CCP and CCP Kleptocrats meanwhile mobilize policemen to maintain stability and sent those “truth spreaders” into jail. How can you rely on CCP Kleptocrats to mitigate this CCP-made humanitarian crisis? The institutional advantage of “being able to concentrate our forces on major tasks” is a joke!

We all know that the virus was created by unscrupulous Kleptocrats (Wang Qishan and Meng Jianzhu) and exacerbated by CCP’s inept institutions and corrupt bureaucrats (especially the governor of Hubei Wang Xiaodong and mayor of Wuhan Municipality Ma Guoqiang), however, CCP’s solution to this CCP-made humanitarian crisis is through tedious bureaucratic processes: they are sending out instructions, issuing special notifications, playing with gesture politics, organizing meetings, allocating resources at central government-level and assigning the toughest tasks to low-level party members, doctors, and medical personnel in the infected area. Meanwhile, people in the infected areas are dying; the doctors and other medical personnel are running out of surgical masks and medical gowns. Many of the medical personnel were infected because so far, there is no vaccine. Their sacrifice should be remembered forever!
