It is now common knowledge that China muzzled – if not eliminated – its own medical professionals who sought to sound the alarm on the coronavirus outbreak for months. The critical time that was lost led to countless innocent lives being sacrificed at the altar of China’s totalitarian ego: an ego suffused with fraud and data manipulation. How many Chinese were butchered by the Red Communists in this manner will likely never be known.
Less well known is the fact that the World Health Organization (WHO) has been complicit in the Chinese fraud. The WHO is an agency of the United Nations mandated to act on health issues across the globe. The WHO’s stated mission is the “attainment by all peoples of the highest possible level of health.”
The Director General of the WHO, Mr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, an Ethiopian politician who is not a medical doctor, has heaped praise on China for its “openness to sharing information” on the virus. The Director General has also called upon nations “…not to limit travel to China.” He has also warned against politicizing the outbreak. Yet, he remains a deep-seated acolyte of China.
This is the same Director General who stood idly by in December 2019 when Taiwanese health officials warned about the infectiousness of the virus. One doesn’t have to be a geopolitical genius to see that the WHO was doing China’s bidding. Taiwan, which so far has only a handful of viral cases, is boycotted from participating as a full-fledged member of the WHO and thereby from sharing its epidemiological expertise with other nations. This, all at China’s behest.
The WHO’s most flagrant breach of the public’s trust, however, occurred January 14 when it stated that “Preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel coronavirus.” This statement, clearly propaganda and not scientific fact, came more than a month after researchers in the city of Wuhan – the epicenter of the outbreak – found ample evidence of human-to-human transmission.
The United States – surprise, surprise – is the largest contributor to the coffers of the WHO. In 2017, the United States was assessed $111 million or 22% of all member states’ assessed contributions while contributing an additional $401 million to the WHO budget. What the United States gets for its largesse is hardly an impartial arbiter on international health issues but a marionette which shamelessly does the bidding of the Chinese.
