If China really is blocking them and it is not part of an agreement, it is a big slap in the face for the self-appointed worldwide health group. To the world as well. In the early days of the pandemic, when President Trump was saying we should ban travel from China, and was called xenophobic for that, I was in agreement it was an over-reaction even though we had been ahead of most corporate media in sounding the alarm about the latest coronavirus pandemic. I said it was an over-reaction because WHO has a reputation for getting hysterical for media attention and said this was being overblown.
Only later did we all learn how much control China exerted over them, especially when WHO representatives nodded along as China suggested COVID-19 was caused by meat imported from the US. This is a group that weirdly endorsed acupuncture and powdered rhino horns as therapy for the disease, which made a whole lot of people in China happy.
Now WHO has admitted a ‘second phase’ – in other words, a real investigation not dictated by a communist government – will never happen, because China is only going to pretend to let one happen if they control the outcomes. And WHO can’t do that again.
