After four weeks of so-called COVID-19 investigation in Wuhan, China, including two weeks of quarantine and some sightseeing, World Health Organization investigators delivered the Chinese Communist Party a propaganda victory. While dismissing the likelihood that the coronavirus leaked from a Wuhan lab, the WHO now endorses the CCP’s conspiracy theory that the coronavirus originated outside of China and came into the country through frozen food products.
Given the WHO’s shameful history of letting Beijing’s politics dictate the organization’s pandemic responses and all the revelations of China’s cover-up in the early days of the pandemic, even the Biden administration is skeptical of the WHO’s conclusion.
U.S. State Department spokesman Ned Price said since the Chinese haven’t offered “the requisite transparency that we need,” the United States would not accept the WHO’s finding without “independently verifying the findings using our own intelligence and conferring with allies.”
But Peter Daszak, the sole American on the WHO team, would have none of it.
