COVID-19: Pandemic Response Probe Team Says WHO China Could Have Acted Faster
Corona virus caused havoc all over the world, originating from Wuhan, China. Millions of people lost their lives, millions of lives were lost. A shocking revelation about the global epidemic corona virus has been revealed, in which the corona virus spread across the world due to the negligence of China and the World Health Organization (WHO).
An independent panel (Independent Panel for Pandemic Preparedness and Response) said in its report that the Corona virus could have been prevented from becoming an epidemic if China wished, but it did not control it in time. Not only this, the World Health Organization has also been held responsible for this. This independent group investigating the global epidemic has concluded that WHO and Beijing could work faster when the first cases of corona were reported in China. But they did not do so and due to the negligence of both of them, the corona virus took the form of epidemic worldwide.
First case came in late 2019
The independent panel, according to its second report on epidemiological preparedness and response, evaluated the chronology of the early stage of the epidemic outbreak, indicating that there was a need to work more quickly after the initial signs. Let us know that in late 2019, the first case of corona virus was reported in Wuhan city of China. As long as China kept the dangerous virus confined to its borders, it had already become a global pandemic, killing more than two million people and causing damage to many economies.
The panel criticized WHO
The panel found that it was clear that public health measures could be implemented more forcefully by local and national health authorities in China in January itself. The panel has also criticized the World Health Organization. The panel said that the United Nations health agency did not even report the epidemic crisis to its emergency committee until January 22, 2020 nor called a meeting. The committee also failed to declare the novel corona virus as a public health emergency ahead of time.
According to the report, it is not yet clear why the committee did not meet until the third week of January, nor is it clear why it could not agree on the declaration of national emergency? Ever since the corona virus crisis deepened throughout the world, the World Health Organization has been criticized for its lax response. The World Health Organization has been criticized to date for the late steps in declaring the epidemic a disaster and mandating a face mask. Criticism from American is well known.
Trump accused China and WHO
US President Donald Trump’s administration took a firm stand towards China and the World Health Organization regarding Corona. Donald Trump had even called the World Health Organization a puppet of China and stopped the financial aid to the WHO.
