Shortly before the official start of the Kovid outbreak, Western troops fell ill with a mysterious illness after attending the World Military Games in Wuhan.
A long-serving Canadian official is among a number of athletes who fell ill while attending games in China’s infectious ground zero city – prompting theories that the virus had leaked from a nearby lab.
The whistling Canadian, who cannot be named because he is still in the forces, said Sunday’s Mail found foreigners competing in October as a “ghost town” of 11 million people.
However, the Communist regime in China claims the first confirmed case is not until December.
It was reported that the Canadian team was so badly affected by the mysterious disease that the Quarantine Division was established on their military aircraft.
The officer said after the military-appointed doctor was sure he was holding Covid and was now demanding an investigation.
He told the Mail: “I am 100 per cent convinced that there was a virus in Wuhan while we were there.
“The burden of proof is on the scientific community and intelligence experts – not on athletes.”
He continued: “I admit I’m not a scientist and it may not be Covid, but why is everyone so reluctant to investigate properly?
“It feels like we’re in Ground Zero with this epidemic. It has had such an impact on everyone’s lives. Millions of deaths and economies have stalled. So why not take proper diligence? Are the facts too big to handle?”

The official’s claims have added to the widespread concern that the Chinese government has been shutting down – meaning there has been little time for the world to respond and prevent it from spreading throughout the world.
At least 5.5 million people have died globally during the epidemic, with deaths in the UK yesterday reaching a staggering 150,000.
The Communist regime in Beijing said it was the first confirmed case on December 8, three weeks before the World Health Organization (WHO) hinted at sources from Taiwan.
The Communist regime refused to cooperate
China continues to refuse to cooperate with full-scale investigation into the origin of the deadly virus.
But evidence of lab leaks has been accumulating since last year, when scientists, researchers and governments were looking for answers.
Dozens of scientists have suggested that infected researchers from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, China, may be able to escape the problem by inadequate disposal of waste or potential breaches in site security.
A high-security facility specializing in coronaviruses is in the eye of the storm, and questions are being raised as to whether Kovid can escape his laboratory.
A bombshell book says the virus appears to have been “tortured” and may have escaped from the laboratory after being bitten by a scientist from an infected monkey.
Both China and the Lab have vehemently denied any allegations – but top former intelligence bosses said the evidence of the lab “accident” was clear to see and there was a calculated cover-up “from the first day”.
