Sharri Markson exposes details of Chinese cover-up
The Daily Telegraph's political editor-at-large Sharri Markson has appeared on American prime time news detailing her explosive revelations about China's cover-up of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The award-winning journalist was interviewed by popular Fox News host Tucker Carlson about her exclusive revelations about China's secrecy over the virus' spread - detailed in a dossier compiled by Western governments obtained by The Daily Telegraph.
In the interview - which featured on prime time US television - Carlson lauded Markson's work, which has gained traction globally as an "amazing piece of journalism" and a world-first.
In the interview, Markson details the dossier's findings that China scrambled to cover-up potential evidence of a COVID-19 outbreak at one of its testing facilities.
"It's very clear from this fifteen page dossier that's been prepared from concerned western governments that China deliberately covered up evidence of the virus early on in a pure case of negligence and this has directly contributed to tens of thousands hundreds of thousands of people dying. These are just the facts the dossier lays out - this isn't ideology this is facts."
The documents trace China's knowledge of human-to-human transmission of the deadly pathogen back to as early as December 6 - more than 6 weeks after they admitted the virus could spread to other humans, she said.
Markson also told Carlson that the dossier proved that China attempted to cover-up potential evidence of a pathogen outbreak at one of their Wuhan wet markets.
"This is what the dossier shows - Chinese authorities disinfected the wet market and bleached it before taking adequate environmental samples that could have perhaps verified their case that it came from a wet market," she told Carlson.
The evidence that China deliberately destroyed evidence that could link Wuhan laboratories to the outbreak is compelling, she said.
"In this case we have [COVID-19] coming from Wuhan, where there are two laboratories dealing with deadly pathogens. One of the laboratories, the Wuhan Institute of Virology was working on batlike coronavirus and were genetically modifying batlike viruses to make them even more deadly."
Markson's exclusive report on the dossier has received international attention from some of the world's most well-known media outlets.
Carlson applauded her work as "a blow against lying" and one of the most "substantial" pieces of evidence linking China to the deadly pandemic.
