In Surprise Comments, WHO Head Says Study On Origins Of Coronavirus Dismissed Lab Leak Theory Too Quickly


Since the start of the Wuhan Virus crisis, the World Health Organization (WHO) has faced criticism for being far too deferential towards the Chinese Communist Party. The WHO often simply regurgitated China’s propaganda claims, rendering the institution basically worthless in terms of any sort of accurate information early on. Even when it was obvious human-to-human transmission was occurring, the WHO was repeating China’s talking points claiming it wasn’t happening. And all along, the WHO has been loathe to antagonize China in any way. So, that makes recent comments by WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus all the more stunning. After a WHO mission to China to study the source of the virus ruled out a lab-leak (something the former US CDC head thinks is most likely), Tedros pushed back and said the possibility was dismissed too soon: “The World Health Organization’s chief said a mission to study the origins of the coronavirus in China was too quick to dismiss the theory of a lab leak, with the U.S. and other governments joining in criticism of the investigation.
