(ROME) JUST IN: The Vatican has accepted the nomination of Communist Party loyalist Father Joseph Cui Qingqi as the new bishop of Wuhan, who will be ordained on September 8. #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Sept.07: AsiaNews, the official press agency of the Pontifical Institute for Foreign Missions, reported Sunday that Father Cui was the only candidate put forward by Church bodies loyal to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to occupy the post in Wuhan…..

#AceDailyNews says that a Catholic Church to Ordain Communist-Friendly Bishop to Wuhan: Father Cui has a history of faithfully representing the interests of the CCP against clergy loyal to Rome.

SHIJIAZHUANG, CHINA - APRIL 09: (CHINA OUT) A Chinese Catholic deacon holds a bible at the Palm Sunday Mass during the Easter Holy Week at an 'underground' or 'unofficial' church on April 9, 2017 near Shijiazhuang, Hebei Province, China.

“Obviously, the Vatican was unable to refuse the appointment, even if the concrete possibilities of assessing its suitability were evidently limited,” AsiaNews added. Cui’s will be the fourth episcopal ordination since the renewal of the Sino-Vatican agreement on the naming of bishops.

In 2012, local clergy in Wuhan sought to decide on the reassignment of priests to parishes in the diocese without the approval of CCP authorities. They held a meeting for this purpose and drafted a list of assignments and transfers between parishes, under the leadership of Father Joseph Shen Guo’an, who had been temporarily in charge of the Wuhan diocese in the absence of a bishop.

Father Shen announced the reassignment of the priests during a solemn Mass in the diocese, which met with applause from the congregation, but government officials intervened soon afterward, interrogating the priests and warning against any changes.

In response, the authorities “recalled from Beijing another priest from the diocese, Father Cui Qingqi,” La Stampa reported at the time, who “was seen to be with government officials before arriving at the diocese.”

When Father Shen and others “resolutely implemented the transfer decision” against the wishes of the government, the provincial Religious Affairs Bureau dismissed Father Shen from his duties as the head of the diocese, along with several other priests.

In their place, the provincial authorities established a five-member management committee led by Father Cui Qingqi, “who is said to be close to the government,” Vatican Radio reported.

The installation of Father Cui was the government’s way of remedying what Vatican Radio described as “an escalating standoff between authorities and the Church in the province.”

At the launch of the new team, no priests or nuns except Fr. Cui were allowed to speak, the report stated, and the government’s reshuffle “effectively overrules church leaders in Wuhan who want to decide on the allocation of priests to parishes themselves.”

The 2012 elevation of CCP-friendly Father Cui was “the latest example of interference by authorities in Wuhan” in the internal life of the Church, Vatican Radio noted.

Over the past year and a half, Wuhan has drawn international attention as the origin of the China coronavirus pandemic.

AsiaNews noted that the consecration of the bishop of Wuhan “had long been hoped for, as proof and symbol of the autonomy of the official Church recognised and controlled by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).”

(WASHINGTON) #Coronavirus Report: Republicans in Congress want to subpoena a British-born scientist as part of an investigation in which they have concluded #COVID19 leaked from a Wuhan laboratory #AceHealthDesk report

#AceHealthReport – Aug.04: A report released by Republicans on the House foreign affairs committee said the “preponderance of evidence proves” the virus leaked from the Chinese research facility “sometime before September 12, 2019”.

#CoronavirusNewsDesk#COVID19 did leak from Wuhan lab, say Republicans who want to question British virus hunter it cited “ample evidence” that the Wuhan Institute of Virology researchers – aided by US experts, and Chinese and US government funds – were working to modify coronaviruses to infect humans, and said such manipulation could be hidden.

WASHINGTON 2 August 2021 • Aug.01, 2021: Preponderance of evidence’ proves the virus originated from the Chinese research facility, report claims. By Nick Allen.

The report foreshadowed the 90-day deadline on Aug 24 for a US intelligence review into the causes of the pandemic, which was ordered by Joe Biden, the US president.

It is believed US intelligence officials have not yet reached a conclusion on whether the virus escaped from the laboratory, or passed from animal to human in a nearby market.

Michael McCaul, the leading Republican congressman on the committee, accused China of “the greatest cover-up of all time”.

In a statement accompanying the report, he said Wuhan scientists should be sanctioned. He also said British-born Dr Peter Daszak should be subpoenaed to answer “many questions” before the committee.

In June, Dr Daszak recused himself from an inquiry into the origins of the pandemic amid concern over his links to the Wuhan laboratory.

In the past, Dr Daszak has worked closely with Shi Zhengli, the Wuhan virologist sometimes nicknamed “Bat Woman” for her work on viruses in bats, and his US-based non-profit organisation had directed funding to Wuhan for virus research.

He was also a member of the World Health Organisation investigation into the source of the pandemic.

In February 2020, he co-authored a letter published in the Lancet which “strongly condemned conspiracy theories suggesting that Covid-19 does not have a natural origin”.

The Republican report cited what it called under-reported information about laboratory safety protocols.

It detailed a request in July 2019 for a $1.5million overhaul of a hazardous waste treatment system, which was less than two years old. That request included maintenance on an “environmental air disinfection system”.

It raised questions about how well such systems were working in the months leading up to the outbreak, the report said.

The report said: “Such a significant renovation so soon after the facility began operation appears unusual.”

According to the report, satellite data in October showed a jump in visits to hospitals in Wuhan, along with a rise in people searching the internet for symptoms that could be linked to the virus.

It suggested the virus spread through Wuhan shortly before the Military World Games was held there in late October 2019.

In November, that event became an “international vector spreading the virus to multiple continents around the world” as athletes returned home, the report said.

Mr McCaul said: “It is our belief the virus leaked sometime in late August or early September 2019.

“When they realised what happened, Chinese Communist Party officials and scientists at the WIV began frantically covering up the leak, including taking their virus database offline in the middle of the night and requesting more than $1million for additional security.

“Therefore it is no longer appropriate for anyone to dismiss the notion this virus could have been genetically modified before it leaked from the WIV.”
