Most people – other than those rooting against President Trump and/or the United States so fervently they don’t want to acknowledge the obvious – know that China lied about COVID-19 early and often, thus was responsible not only for the virus itself, but its spread throughout most of the world.
Until now, the World Health Organization (WHO) has acted as China’s propaganda machine, parroting every lie China has told about it, no matter how absurd.
But now, finally, after a half-year of seconding those lies, WHO is finally starting to try and retrieve at least some of its credibility by – quietly – acknowledging they were lies.
From Kristina Wong’s article at breitbart.com (NOT our mainstream media, though I expect they’ll have to make note of it at some point), we have this:
The World Health Organization (WHO) quietly updated a timeline this week to reflect that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) never reported its discovery of the coronavirus to the WHO and that the global health agency had to learn about it by itself, despite the WHO’s praise of Chinese transparency.
An old WHO timeline of the virus, published on its website, stated:
31 Dec 2019
Wuhan Municipal Health Commission, China, reported a cluster of cases of pneumonia in Wuhan, Hubei Province. A novel coronavirus was eventually identified.
A note on the old timeline now states, “This statement is no longer maintained. An updated version was published on 29 June 2020.”
The updated WHO timeline reflects that WHO’s own office in China found open-source reports on the coronavirus and alerted the WHO’s Western Pacific Regional Office, and on January 1, WHO requested information from Chinese authorities.
The article goes on to cite specific “changes” (admissions) in the WHO timeline which lay out additional lies – lies that cost us time we could have started dealing with the China virus, but did not have the information to do so.
My thanks to Ms. Wong and breitbart.com for this information. Because – try googling “World Health Organization COVID-19 update” to see for yourself – if I relied on our mainstream media to tell me about it, I wouldn’t have a clue.
Why would this go unreported? Maybe, just maybe, because it also puts the lie to the absolute BS claims by Biden, Schumer and other Democrats that Trump knew about COVID-19 virus for months before acting, thus it was him, not China and WHO, responsible for how widespread the virus is.
Put another way, don’t expect anything that makes Donald Trump look good and Democrats look bad get a lot of media attention. Especially not in an election year. That’s not going to happen.
