Truthful lips endure forever, but a lying tongue is but a moment. [Pr. 12:19]
Dr. Zhang Wenhong, leader of the Shanghai team of experts in the treatment of Novel Coronavirus Pneumonia cases and director of the department of infectious diseases at Shanghai Huashan Hospital Affiliated with Fudan University, was interviewed by China Daily on Feb. 28.
When pressed on whether or not the Novel Coronavirus was imported from elsewhere, Dr. Zhang Wenhong said he believes it originated in Wuhan.
He added. “Moreover, influenza could be easily differentiated from the coronavirus infection through CT scan.”
Let’s take a moment to look back what Zhong Nanshan, a senior national health and protection team leader and the director of national research center for clinical respiratory disease research, said at a press conference on Feb. 27, he claimed that “the epidemic first appeared in China, but that does not mean it originated from China.”
Frankly speaking, it took a lot of courage for Dr. Zhang Wenhong to diametrically oppose opinions with the offical version of Coronavirus, because Dr. Li Wenliang was an example and paid the price of his life.
After comparing what the two men spoke and did, you will find it’s not only an ironic historical coincidence but new samsara of nobleness and degeneration. The same scene was staged at different times. Today’s Zhong Nanshan has become the technocrat he hated and opposed in the SARS era of 2003, while today’s Zhang Wenhong has become him that man who ever dared to speak truth to power in those days.
