The Fog of War obscures much about the novel coronavirus pandemic. But 2 facts are certain, 1) China’s Communist authorities have lied, concealed and misled about the origins of the epidemic and the toll of the virus in China, and 2) the World Health Organization has acted as Beijing’s handmaid.
The result: The global toll of this health tragedy will be much greater than it need have been.
When Dr. Li Wenliang (dec.) tried to warn the public about the coronavirus, he was detained, charged with “spreading false rumors” accused of “seriously disrupting social order,”and died. All discussion about the virus are censored.
To help stem the pandemic, the WHO should have been pressing China for the truth.
Far from sounding an alarm the UN’s outfit was impassive while Beijing stonewalled international health authorities for weeks.
And WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus praised the Chinese regime for its “transparency” in the crisis. Mr. Ghebreyesus you may was Beijing’s candidate for WHO Boss and owes his job to China’s campaign for him at the UN.
When the history of this healthy emergency is eventually written, the Chinese Communist Party will bear the responsibility for this tragedy that swept the Earth. So will a WHO and the controversial Ethiopian politician that was/is too interested in the health of the Chinese communist regime at the ‘moment of truth‘. He should be sacked now!
Thursday, US Senator Martha McSally (R-Ar) called on the UN’s World Health Organization (WHO) Director General to step down for his help in covering up China’s underreporting of its coronavirus attack, as the GOP criticisms of the organization mount.
In a TV interview Senator McSally said Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus should resign over the his handling of this pandemic, which originated in Wuhan, China.
China has claimed it has essentially flattened new cases of the deadly virus now killing thousands of Americans, but a US intel report questions that.
“I have never trusted a communist,” Senator McSally said. “And their cover-up of this virus that originated with them has caused unnecessary deaths around America and the world.”
“The WHO needs to stop covering for them,” she added. “I think Tedros needs to step down. We need to take some action to address this issue. It is just irresponsible, it is unconscionable what they have done here while we have people dying across the globe.”
Earlier this week, Senator Rick Scott (R-FL), called for a congressional probe into the WHO and indicated that the United States should withhold funding for “helping Communist China cover up” the consequences of their virus.
Senator McSally agreed “we need to look at addressing the WHO as well.” She also said US debts to China “should be forgiven, as a minimum.”
Tarik Jašarević, a spokesman for the WHO, that the organization expects members “to report data in a timely and accurate manner.”
Have a healthy day, stay home!
