Xi Jinping has asked Tedros to “delay the global warning” over the Covid-19 outbreak; WHO denies
The World Health Organization (WHO) has denied a media report alleging that Chinese President Xi Jinping personally asked WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom to “delay a worldwide warning” about the coronary virus outbreak during a telephone in January.
German press agency Der Spiegel published a report citing intelligence from the country’s federal intelligence agency, the Bundeschurch, that China “urged” the planet Health Organization (WHO) to “delay a worldwide warning” of a coronavirus outbreak. in keeping with the report, the intelligence found that Xi and Tedros spoke by phone on January 21 and “urged” the Chinese president to “withhold information on human-to-human transmission and delay the pandemic warning.” “The National Development Bank estimates that China’s information policy has lost four to 6 weeks to fight the virus around the world,” the report said.
The World Health Organization (WHO) described the allegations as “baseless and untrue.” in an exceedingly series of tweets, WHO made it clear that there had never been a telephone between Leader Tedros and Xi Jinping.
“Der Spiegel’s reports of a telephone on January 21, 2020 between Director-General Tedros Adhanom Gipresos and Chinese President Xi Jinping are unfounded and untrue,” the planet Health Organization (WHO) said. “Dr. Tedros and President Xi failed to speak on January 21 and never spoke on the phone. These inaccurate reports divert attention and detract from who and also the world’s efforts to finish the COVID-19 pandemic.”
The World Health Organization (WHO) said Saturday that “China confirmed the transmission of the new coronavirus from human to a human on Jan. 20.” the planet Health Organization (WHO) announced on January 22 that “data collected … It indicates that human-to-human transmission occurs in Wuhan.” WHO declared the coronavirus a deadly disease in March.
Us President Donald Trump, who has repeatedly accused the planet Health Organization (WHO) of becoming a tool for “Chinese propaganda” to prevent U.S. aid to the organization, has also moved to prevent U.S. aid to the organization. He also launched an investigation into who’s role within the spread of the coronavirus. within the past, Trump has accused the planet Health Organization of being “China-focused” and also describing it as Beijing’s “pipe organ.”
