Health minister says China must be held to account if they weren’t honest about virus


OTTAWA — Health Minister Patty Hajdu says that if China misled the world in the early stages of the pandemic, then they will need to be held to account. Bloomberg News and The New York Times reported in April that the U.S. intelligence community had warned the U.S. administration in a classified report that China “concealed the extent of the coronavirus outbreak in its country.” Multiple countries have also questioned China’s early response, including the U.K. and France. “If China wasn’t honest, then they need to be held to account,” Hajdu said in an interview with CTV Question Period Host Evan Solomon, airing Sunday.
