Authorities in Beijing have said that the Chinese germ warfare program, one result of which has been the Coronavirus outbreak in the city of Wuhan, is coming along nicely, thank you.
Details of the program are sketchy, but one of the agents being produced involves combining seafood with live animals in a hot, sweaty environment, which, when incubated and passed on to a human host, produces a form of pneumonia.
The outbreak in Wuhan, say the authorities, has been a minor setback, and is being covered-up as much as it can be.
One man who travelled from Wuhan to the US, and sought medical assistance in Washington, has already been diagnosed with the Coronavirus, and it's hoped he will be the start of the process that will completely wipe out the population of the north American continent.
Happy Chinese New Year!
