  • Some people in China are  being given fake vaccines.

  • And fake Chinese vaccines could  even be spreading around the world.

  • Welcome to China Uncensored, I'm Chris Chappell.

  • For a year, the world has been  suffering from the CCP virusthe  

  • coronavirus that spread because of the Chinese  Communist Party's initial lies and cover up

  • And now, the CCP will save the world by  exporting vaccines for the virus it spread.

  • Just like it saved the world by keeping  the coronavirus within its borders,  

  • which was an actual propaganda line Chinese  state-run media used back in February 2020.

  • And then when that stopped being true,  

  • the Chinese Communist Party saved  the world by exporting face masks.

  • Of course that also kind of backfired.

  • So now they've moved on to exporting vaccines.

  • I just pray to Mao those exported  vaccines are safe and effective.

  • Because a substantial number of the vaccine  doses being given out in China are fake.

  • And I don't mean fake, like  only effective half the time,  

  • like the official Chinese  vaccine being used now in Brazil.

  • That's not fake. That's standardStandard made-in-China quality.

  • No, byfake,” I mean like how inside China,  “Fake vaccines had been made using saline  

  • to attract government subsidies for  clinics offering emergency vaccinations.”

  • Recently, more than 80 people were arrested in  a vaccine bust. They were part of a gang that  

  • made 3 million dollars from selling  water as COVID-19 vaccine shots

  • Authorities said the leader and his associates  

  • had sold nearly 60,000 syringes  with fake vaccines across China.

  • In a related case, another scammer shipped  600 doses of fake vaccine internationally  

  • via Hong Kong, for a profit of 140,000 dollars.

  • In other cases, counterfeit vaccines were being  sold at inflated prices in Chinese hospitals.

  • Andother criminals also conducted  inoculation programmes of their own  

  • and had 'village doctors' vaccinate people  with fake jabs in their homes and cars.”

  • My advice: If a guy dressed like a doctor pulls  up in a van and offers to stick a needle in you,  

  • walk away. In fact, run away

  • Now obviously the Chinese  Communist Party is concerned.  

  • Not because fake vaccines mean  more people could die from Covid.  

  • If the CCP actually cared about human lifethey'd stop killing people for their organs.

  • No, the CCP is concerned becauseas state-run media puts it,  

  • these fake vaccines being sent overseas  tarnishes the image of the country.

  • And tarnishing the image of  the country is Beijing's job!

  • Last month, the Supreme People's  Procuratoratewhich is like China's  

  • attorney generalannounced it would take action

  • It said it would deepen its crackdown  on fake vaccine manufacturingand  

  • that there were more than 21 cases  of major vaccine fraud across China

  • Which is to say, if the top level of the  Chinese government is getting involved,  

  • fake vaccines could be a much more widespread  issue than state-run media will admit.

  • Here's another perspective: The  cofounder of one Chinese NGO said  

  • the focus on criminal activity was a distraction  from the genuine threat to people's health from  

  • shoddy, out-of-date, and incorrectly  handled vaccines from legitimate sources.”

  • Great. So... you can't trust the  legitimate sources of the vaccine, either.

  • Sadly, there's nothing new about fake  and low-quality vaccines in China.

  • This article from five years ago talks  about how Chinese authorities pledged  

  • to crack down on the black market sale of  vaccines for meningitis and rabies. That  

  • was after a case was made public involving  nearly $90 million worth of illegal vaccines  

  • that were suspected of being  sold in dozens of provinces.

  • And that crackdown definitely happened, and  solved the fake vaccine problem forever.

  • Obviously, fake products are  sold all the time in China.

  • From silly things like knockoff Nike sandals,

  • and problematic KFC...

  • to more serious products like  fake alcoholwhich can kill you,

  • and fake baby formulawhich can kill your baby.

  • So fake vaccines are just another  item in a long list of fake products.

  • Why are fake products so common in ChinaWell, criminals are going to be criminals. But  

  • it's hard to really crack down on them when the  government is also run by a bunch of criminals.  

  • Because sometimes criminals collude with each  other. The Chinese government might pass a  

  • bunch of regulations, but the system is so deeply  corrupt that enforcement is close to impossible.  

  • And a lot of times when the government announces  a big crackdown, it's only for political reasons.

  • They want to look like the good guyand  

  • get Western media to write glowing articles  about how China is saving the world.

  • Meanwhile, Chinese state-run media  are doing whatever they can to  

  • discredit Covid vaccines that aren't from China.

  • As the Global Times says, the UScan  either continue to blame and malign China,  

  • or join it to help develop and distribute  life-saving vaccines around the world.”

  • I'm going to give that a hard pass.

  • Interestingly, Chinese state-run media started  on this kick of trying to discredit other  

  • countries' vaccines after that study came  out saying that the Chinese Sinovac vaccine  

  • was only 50 percent effective.

  • I'm sure that's just a coincidence.

  • But will China's vaccine propaganda  succeed? Well, a recent poll in Taiwan  

  • showed that only 1.3 percent of the population  would be willing to get a Chinese Covid vaccine.

  • And now that you've watched  this episode, you know why.

  • And now it's time for me to  answer a question from you,  

  • a viewer who supports China Uncensored on Patreon.

  • Barton Blackorby asks: “Hey Chris, I saw that  the CCP is broadcasting their propaganda even  

  • in Times Square!”—and here's a link withphoto—“How much have they infiltrated our media?”

  • Good question, Barton. The answer is complicatedAn ad in Times Square probably doesn't accomplish  

  • much, aside from wasting Chinese taxpayer money.  I'd hardly call that infiltrating our media.

  • The main ways the CCP infiltrates Western  media is by pressuring them to self-censor.  

  • Take NBC, which has a multi-billion dollar  deal to broadcast the 2022 Beijing Olympics.  

  • It's a big risk for them to do too  much critical reporting on China.

  • Or take the Washington Post  and the New York Times.  

  • Until recently, they both took money in exchange  for having Chinese propaganda inserts like this.

  • But more importantly, the billionaire owners  of those companies have substantial business  

  • interests tied to China. Easier  to self-censor than anger the CCP.

  • Having been in the news business for a long  time, I can tell you that for every story  

  • you hear about, a dozen equally important  stories get left on the editing room floor,  

  • as they say. The CCP knows it's hard to  get media to directly publish propaganda,  

  • but it's easy to get them to simply  ignore certain critical stories.

  • That being said, the media in the  US aren't monolithic. There are  

  • some smaller media that are goinggreat job covering China. And even from  

  • big media like the New York Times, you can get  individual reporters with good China stories.

  • But my point is, if there were  no influence from the CCP,  

  • American media as a whole would treat China  much more like we treated the Soviet Union—a  

  • serious threat, instead of an ally  we should be getting vaccines from.

  • Thanks for your question, Barton.
