U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused China and the World Health Organization of major failures at a press conference in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday morning.
Pompeo – using the World Health Organization’s (WHO) own rulebook – slammed the Chinese Communist Party for not sharing relevant information about the coronavirus outbreak, and the WHO for not policing the matter appropriately.
The Secretary of State explained that the CCP has still not shared the virus sample from Wuhan province, China.
Speaking this morning Pompeo commented: “China didn’t share all the information it had. It covered up how dangerous the disease is. It didn’t report sustained human-to-human transmission for a month, until it was inside every province in China. It censored those who tried to warn the world… and it destroyed existing samples.
