China kept silent 3 months from the start of the pandemic

A confidential internal document from the World Health Organization revealed that China did not provide information during the first 3 months of the epidemic, and that Chinese officials did not make sufficient efforts regarding the epidemiological investigations into the Covid 19 pandemic in Wuhan in the first eight months after the outbreak.

The summary of the internal travel report of the global organization said, according to a report published by the newspaper, “The Guardian”: “On August 10, 2020, the team of investigators met their Chinese counterparts as part of a mission to help find the origin of the virus, but it received scant information at that time. No written documents or data shall be submitted.

The report also confirmed that WHO scientists were hampered in their early efforts to study the outbreak in China.

That document included a summary of the trip of the World Health Organization Program Director and Mission Leader Peter bin Mubarak to China between July 10 and August 3, 2020, which was described as the organization’s mission to study Covid-19 and “review the work done so far on the origin of the virus.”

The travel report indicated that the mission began with a two-week quarantine, followed by 10 days of face-to-face meetings with relevant ministries in China, including the National Health Commission, the State Administration for Market Regulation, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, and other agencies including the Wuhan Institute of Virology. She made the statement orally, giving few details, and no documents were shared.

A WHO spokesman declined to comment on “internal documents”, and neither did the Chinese embassy in Washington respond to a request for comment.

It is noteworthy that the number of infections with the Coronavirus has reached more than 111.61 million people worldwide, while the total number of deaths resulting from the virus has reached two million 574 thousand and 877.
