Lockdowns and quarantines for a flu-like virus are the personal invention of China’s President Xi Jinping, being unheard of before Wuhan. Never before had lockdowns been recommended or implemented for a respiratory flu-like virus (or even for any other virus – only for Ebola these had been attempted once, but found ineffective).
The great genius Xi Jinping came to this brilliant idea all by himself.

The 24 February 2020 Report of the WHO-China Joint Mission on Coronavirus Disease 2019 said: “General Secretary Xi Jinping personallydirected and deployed the prevention and control work [namely, the lockdowns and quarantines] … China’s uncompromising and rigorous use of non-pharmaceutical measures to contain transmission of the COVID-19 virus in multiple settings provides vitallessons for the global response”(emphasis added).
On 30 January 2020 – barely a week after the Wuhan lockdowns had started and without any evaluation of these experimental “remedies” – Tedros Ghebreyesus fawningly announced: “China is actually setting a new standard for outbreak response. It’s not an exaggeration”. A “new standard”, indeed!
THIS IS UNPRECEDENTED
In my complaint to the International Criminal Court I’ve provided extensive proof that there have never before been lockdowns for any respiratory virus (the only time they were imposed was for Ebola). Here’s a professor of the history of medicine (who studies the history, so presumably should know something), saying the same thing:
