Biological warfare —also known as germ warfare—is the use of biological toxins or infectious agents such as bacteria, viruses, insects, and fungi with the intent to kill or incapacitate humans, animals or plants as an act of war. Biological weapons are living organisms or replicating entities. During World War I, the German Army developed anthrax, glanders, cholera, and a wheat fungus specifically for use as biological weapons. China possesses nuclear weapons, a range of ballistic missile capabilities, and the ability to develop chemical and biological weapons.

Thanks to Beijing’s censorship, news about the coronavirus came too little too late in order to contain the outbreak successfully. Even though the coronavirus has to date been far less lethal than the flu, its long incubation period has ensured its spread as asymptomatic carriers spread around the globe. Coronaviruses is not new it is common in animals of all kinds, and they sometimes can evolve into forms that can infect humans. Since the start of the century, two other coronaviruses have jumped to humans, causing the SARS outbreak in 2002 and the MERS outbreak in 2012.

The Chinese government’s silence has at best created uncertainty and raised many questions. At worst, the silence has bred conspiracy. The conspiracy among Asians is that China released the germ to kill Americans but had to sustain causalities as well.

How is it that Ebola can be detained well as the Flu, and the Norovirus but the Coronavirus remains elusive although it has been around since 2002. President Trump doesn't want to face the fact that it can be biological warfare because it will destroy the stock market rather than lives. The stock market doesn't affect the poor. And for those lives that are dying they have no value to his bottom dollar.
