China Never Notified WHO About Outbreak In Wuhan - WHO Suddenly Takes U-turn Against China

Hanima Anand |Jul 04, 2020

WHO quietly changed the timeline on their official website, removing the information that China reported cases of pneumonia in Wuhan. The changes denie Chinese reports about the initial outbreak.

The news came as ridicule to many people when the World Health Organization (WHO) quietly changes the official timeline regarding the coronavirus outbreak and updates contradictory information to what it said before.

Weeks ago, WHO praised China for its efforts and measures in curbing the coronavirus spread, as well as disapproving the American approach to the pandemic. WHO Chief also warned US President Donald Trump for not politicizing Covid-19 when Trump called it the Wuhan virus or made criticism against China regarding the virus.

Who Against China 1
WHO is claimed to favor China since the outbreak of coronavirus.

Following WHO’s response which seems to be more favorable to China, Donald Trump threatened to stop funding for WHO, which never happened in history. And he did it.

The US President, on May 19, gave WHO 30 days to improve the situation; otherwise, the funding cuts would be permanent. WHO didn’t address directly to the warning.

Who Against China 2
In the letter Trump sent to WHO, it says WHO has 30 days for major changes.

All of a sudden, yesterday, The Washington Examiner, an American weekly newspaper, reported that WHO quietly changed their official timeline of Covid-19, in which the information of Chinese report on initial outbreak was altered.

In the old timeline, WHO noted:

“December 31, 2019: Wuhan Municipal Health Commission, China, reported a cluster of cases of pneumonia in Wuhan, Hubei Province. A novel coronavirus was eventually identified.”

In this report, it indicates clearly that Chinese authorities (here is Wuhan Municipal Health Commission) had notified WHO about the cases of novel pneumonia.

However, it is now changed to this:

“December 31, 2019: WHO’s Country Office in the People’s Republic of China picked up a media statement by the Wuhan Municipal Health Commission from their website on cases of ‘viral pneumonia’ in Wuhan, People’s Republic of China.”

This statement apparently refused what has been stated before about the notification from Wuhan officials. It said WHO picked up a media statement itself, from the website of Wuhan health committee. China is not the one to notice WHO but WHO looked for the information on its own.

Who Against China 3
People doubt the changes in WHO timeline relate to the pressure from the White House.

Commenting on the changes, The Washington Examiner wrote this is an implication from WHO that “despite public reporting to the contrary …China never notified the WHO about the outbreak in Wuhan.”

Not sure what is the reason behind this move from WHO, but it’s probably related to the relationship between this organization to its biggest sponsor in the history.
