Is there anyone that didn’t see this coming? It turns out the WHO trip to China to investigate the origin of the coronavirus pandemic was a big waste of time, though of course China got something out of it. Today even the White House is expressing frustration about the findings and how they were communicated.
White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan said in a statement that it is imperative that the report be independent and free from “alteration by the Chinese government”, echoing concerns raised by the administration of former President Donald Trump, who also moved to quit the WHO over the issue…
“Re-engaging the WHO also means holding it to the highest standards,” Sullivan said. “We have deep concerns about the way in which the early findings of the Covid-19 investigation were communicated and questions about the process used to reach them.”…
“It is imperative that this report be independent, with expert findings free from intervention or alteration by the Chinese government,” Sullivan said.
In short, it looks like China is cooking the books. A specific revelation prompted this statement. It turns out China refused to give the WHO team the raw data on the earliest people suspected of having the virus. In fact, the NY Times reports the WHO scientists got into shouting matches with their Chinese counterparts who refused to hand over the data or explain how they gathered it.
