WHO’s Tedros Scolds World for ‘Not Listening’ to Warnings

April 29, 2020

World Health Organization (WHO) honcho Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus complained Monday that “the world should have listened” when the agency first warned of the dangers posed by the coronavirus.

“On January 30 we declared the highest level of global emergency on Covid-19…,” Tedros claimed during WHO’s latest press briefing in Geneva. “During that time, as you may remember, there were only 82 cases outside China. No cases in Latin America or Africa, only 10 cases in Europe. No cases in the rest of the world. So the world should have listened to the W.H.O. then carefully.”

“We advised the whole world to implement a comprehensive public health approach – find, test, contact tracing and so on,” he continued. “The countries who followed that are in a better position than others.”

In fact, WHO covered for China in the early stages, claiming in January that “[p]reliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel [coronavirus] identified in [Wuhan].”
