CIA report: China pressured WHO to downplay coronavirus
A new CIA report says China pressured the World Health Organization to downplay the extent of the coronavirus pandemic.
The WHO complied and people have died.
The CIA report surrounds a January 22 WHO vote to delay the declaration of a worldwide coronavirus pandemic.
The Daily Mail covered the story:
“The CIA report says China threaten to stop cooperating with the World Health organization’s Coronavirus investigation if the organization declared the outbreak of global Health Emergency.
“The alleged delay came at a crucial time in January as the virus was spreading around the world undetected and China was stockpiling medical equipment and protective gear made in the US and elsewhere.
“The shock allegation comes as more than 82,000 Americans have died of the virus that originated in Wuhan China last year and the claims are likely to further fray tense relations between Washington and Beijing.
