The daughter of a British man who died of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus outside China said that if it were not for the cover-up of the pandemic outbreak her father would still be alive.

Jane Buckland, the daughter of Peter Attwood, 84, a resident of Chatham, Kent, England, died in the hospital on Jan. 30, after presenting symptoms of cough and fever.

“If China had not lied to the rest of the world and kept this hidden for so long, it could have saved countless lives,” Buckland said according to The Sun on Sept. 8.

Attwood, who never traveled abroad, had been sick since December and maybe the first Briton to die from the CCP Virus, as traces of it were found in his lungs.

“My father could still be here if we had known about the threat of this horrible virus before,” Buckland said.

“No wonder so many people in this country ended up dying from it. How many lives could have been saved if we had known what was really going on,” Buckland stressed.

For Iain Duncan Smith, a British politician, this case is taken as evidence against the CCP because of the deaths and the disaster caused by the CCP Virus.

“This has shown absolutely positively that what was happening in October in China, where doctors were talking and then being silenced, was that China knew all about the human-to-human transfer of this virus and did nothing about it,” Smith said, according to The Sun.

Smith also blamed the WHO for only admitting to the pandemic on March 11, after the CCP announced the existence of the CCP virus in late January.

Not only did the CCP delay in admitting the rapid spread of the CCP Virus, but even in early March, it was trying to prevent the pandemic from appearing it came from China.

These irregularities caused unease in international circles, and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo referred to the damage caused by the CCP’s delay in warning of the dangerousness of the virus.

“If China permitted its own and foreign journalists and medical personnel to speak and investigate freely, Chinese officials and other nations would have been far better prepared to address the challenge,” Pompeo said on Feb. 25, according to Reuters.
