This is something that the Finnish media refuses to seriously investigate, they just unquestionably peddle the nonsense of these international organizations like dutiful lackeys…
The acting Director-General, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesu, is a ”former” communist who was heavily lobbied for by the Chinese Communist Party. I think that that matters.
Relying on advice from the Emergency Committee, Tedros issued his set of “Temporary Recommendations” on January 30th, which “does not recommend any travel or trade restriction based on the current information available.” Fortunately, President Trump did not listen to that portion of WHO’s advice. The president instituted very tight restrictions on travel from China into the United States on January 31, 2020. Just a few days later, Tedros committed additional medical malpractice of his own when he warned that such “restrictions can have the effect of increasing fear and stigma, with little public health benefit.” If President Trump had not acted early, many more Americans could have become infected with the virus and died. Dr. Anthony Fauci said, “One of the things we did right was very early cut off travel from China to the United States.” He called President Trump’s action “the right public health call.”
Trump Vs. World Health Organization
How the UN ‘health’ organization carries water for communist China.
President Trump has decided to re-examine U.S. funding of the World Health Organization (WHO), which dropped the ball as the coronavirus began spreading in China and beyond. “We want to look into the World Health Organization because they really called it wrong,” President Trump said at this Tuesday’s White House Coronavirus Task Force press briefing. “They seem to be very China-centric,” he added. “That’s a nice way of saying it, but they seem to be very China-centric, and they seem to err always on the side of China.” The facts are entirely on President Trump’s side.
Taking information from China, the origin of the coronavirus outbreak, at face value, WHO’s leadership went along with China’s initial refusal to even admit human to human contamination. By the end of December 2019, Chinese authorities were already suppressing attempts by at least one brave Chinese doctor to sound a warning about the outbreak of an illness resembling severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). However, WHO turned a blind eye. In a statement issued on January 9, 2020, WHO said, “According to Chinese authorities, the virus in question can cause severe illness in some patients and does not transmit readily between people. China has strong public health capacities and resources to respond and manage respiratory disease outbreaks.”
By mid-January 2020, the human to human transmission of the coronavirus was clear to Chinese doctors on the front line. Yet, WHO still stuck with the official Chinese government’s narrative denying the obvious. On January 14, 2020, WHO tweeted, “Preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel #coronavirus (2019-nCoV) identified in #Wuhan, #China.” On January 16, 2020, WHO declared, “Not enough is known to draw definitive conclusions about how it is transmitted, the clinical features of the disease, the extent to which it has spread, or its source, which remains unknown.” On January 22, 2020, the WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said, “I was very impressed by the detail and depth of China’s presentation. I also appreciate the cooperation of China’s Minister of Health, who I have spoken with directly during the last few days and weeks. His leadership and the intervention of President Xi and Premier Li have been invaluable, and all the measures they have taken to respond to the outbreak.” On January 28, 2020, Tedros and two other WHO officials met with President Xi Jinping in Beijing. “We appreciate the seriousness with which China is taking this outbreak, especially the commitment from top leadership, and the transparency they have demonstrated,” Tedros said with a straight face.
These are just the early examples of WHO’s medical malpractice. WHO’s leadership failed to ask critical questions about the origin and spread of the virus and failed to promptly undertake an independent onsite investigation by WHO’s own health professionals, with the objective of stopping the spread of the coronavirus at a time that it could have been contained. Instead, WHO unswervingly relied on the Chinese authorities’ disinformation about the coronavirus. But WHO’s medical malpractice didn’t stop there.
WHO delayed declaring the coronavirus a “public health emergency of international concern” until January 30, 2020 – waiting a full month after the first case of the virus was reported. An Emergency Committee was convened by the WHO Director-General Tedros to address the crisis. It stated on January 30 that it “welcomed the leadership and political commitment of the very highest levels of Chinese government, their commitment to transparency, and the efforts made to investigate and contain the current outbreak.”
