Fears of a second wave of the CCP Virus (coronavirus )in China are mounting, as evidence is increasing the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is stockpiling protective gear to deal with it.

The number of worldwide cases of CCP Virus passed the 5 million mark on Thursday, May 21, and China professes to have a total of confirmed cases of just over 84,000. This figure seems unbelievably low when you consider their huge population of almost 1.5 billion.

The United States, with a population of around 330 million, has over 1.5 million confirmed CCP Virus cases.

Also looking at the crowded conditions in China many are forced to live under, it makes the number of reported cases seem highly underreported.

The latest developments in China may make it harder for them to conceal the truth however.

The Chinese Communist Party is taking control of manufacturing lines that are crucial for making protective gear for the pandemic, increasing the fear they may be suffering a second wave of the virus, American traders told The Post.

Moshe Malamud a New Yorker, lived in China for a decade and has done business with them for more than two decades. During the height of the virus, he delivered tens of millions of pieces of protective gear to the United States, but lately the CCP has cornered the market, and protective gear is hard to find. “I was placing a larger order with one of the bigger distributors and he tells me, ‘I can complete this order but after this, we’ve been contracted by the Chinese government to produce 250 million gowns,’” said Malamud, the founder of the aviation company M2Jets.

“We hear how China is up and running and the virus is past them, so I asked, ‘What are they ordering 250 million gowns for?’ and of course no one is talking.” Thermometers are also being stockpiled by the CCP, according to Malamud. “I’ve been hearing this a lot from other manufacturing institutions that say, ‘We can give you a little bit, but basically we’re concentrated between now and the end of the summer manufacturing stuff for the Chinese government in anticipation of a second wave,’” he continued.

Leading manufacturers of protective gear informed the White House that they had been prohibited by the CCP from exporting goods as the pandemic increased, reported The Post.

A leaked Department of Homeland Security intelligence report indicated that the CCP had deliberately downplayed the severity of the infection to accumulate supplies for itself to help fight it.

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill are demanding an investigation into the CCP’s handling of the crisis, which started in Wuhan in December 2019.

“In a time of a global pandemic, lies cost lives,” Rep. Max Rose (D-N.Y.) told The Post. “Reports of the Communist Chinese government downplaying the severity of the coronavirus while simultaneously stockpiling PPE strikes to the core of why they cannot be trusted,” he continued. “That’s why I’ve made a bipartisan request for our Intelligence Community to get facts because the world deserves to know the truth,” he said.
