Taiwan Says It Warned WHO About Coronavirus In December, But Its Warnings Were Ignored

 

Taiwan is blaming the World Health Organization’s relationship with China for its failure to act on early warnings of human-to-human transmission of coronavirus.

Taiwanese health officials alerted WHO of the infectivity of coronavirus in late December 2019, but the organization failed to report the claims to other countries, according to a Financial Times report.

Weeks after receiving Taiwan’s warning, on Jan. 14, WHO repeated China’s claim that coronavirus was not contagious among humans. (RELATED: FLASHBACK Jan. 14: WHO Tells Everyone Don’t Worry Because China Says Coronavirus Isn’t Contagious)

Taiwan reported its concerns to a WHO framework called the International Health Regulations on Dec. 31, 2019. The IHR framework is intended to be an exchange of epidemic data between 196 countries.

“While the IHR’s internal website provides a platform for all countries to share information on the epidemic and their response, none of the information shared by our country’s [Centers for Disease Control] is being put up there,” Taiwanese Vice President Chen Chien-Jen told the Financial Times.

“The WHO could not obtain first-hand information to study and judge whether there was human-to-human transmission of COVID-10. This led it to announce human-to-human transmission with a delay, and an opportunity to raise the alert level both in China and the wider world was lost,” Chen added.

WHO declined to comment on Taiwan’s accusation, telling the Financial Times it holds “frank and open discussions on sometimes sensitive issues” with countries and in order to maintain trust it needs to “respect the confidentiality of such communications.”

 

Taiwan has had a model response to the coronavirus crisis. Despite being situated just 140 miles off the Chinese coast, Taiwan has had only 135 confirmed cases of the virus and two deaths, according to John Hopkins University.

However, Taiwan has become largely locked out of international institutions as communist China’s influence around the world has grown.

Taiwan was excluded from an emergency committee convened by the WHO on Jan. 21 to determine whether the coronavirus outbreak would grow into an international crisis due to Chinese pressure to keep Taiwan from participating in international organizations, according to a report by Foreign Policy.

China and Taiwan, known officially the Republic of China, officially claim mainland China as a part of their respective territories. And under China’s communist government, under its “One China Principle,” officially claims Taiwan as part of its territory.

The long-running dispute between the two nations began at the end of the Chinese Civil War in 1949, when Chinese Nationalist leader Chaing Kai-Shek fled to Taiwan, opening the door for Chinese communists to wrest control of the mainland.

The WHO did not address Taiwan’s claims when asked about the nation’s accusation that the WHO failed to acto on its coronavirus transmission warning.

Instead, WHO spokesperson Tarik Jasarevic said its country office in China was informed of a “pneumonia of unknown cause” in Wuhan on Dec. 31.

“By January 2nd WHO had activated a three level – country office, regional office and HQ – response team to track the situation and share details as they emerged,” Jasarevic said. “By the second week of January WHO had issued a tool for countries to check their ability to detect and respond to a novel coronavirus. Since the outbreak began, WHO has been working 24/7 at all three levels to analyse data, provide advice, coordinate with partners, help countries prepare, increase supplies and manage expert networks.”

If the USA was not aware of the situation in China we’re screwed more for a lack of global intelligence infrastructure and reporting than the virus itself. 
 

The military alone should have known what’s up early on and briefed the White House/State Dept, etc.

People, don't be stupid like Europe.

Coronavirus: flights from Italy, Iran and China still landing: Travellers from virus-hit countries continue to arrive daily despite the government’s domestic lockdown

A spokesman for the government defended the decision to forego travel bans on inflected countries, claiming: “There is no evidence that interventions like closing borders or travel bans would have any effect on the spread of infection. Those who return to the UK would be advised to reduce their social contact by following the same social distancing measures as the rest of the country.”

Unbelievable.

They knew, they reported and the administration downplayed the threat.  What really broke this wide open was the NBA suspending operations. That was the “Oh Shit” moment that forced the Govt to start dealing with this virus out in the open. No more hiding the facts and failing to prepare.

2009 Flashback. H1N1 no big deal. 10 minutes. This was after about 4,000 deaths from H1N1 compared to the 300 from COVID-19. Why are the responses disproportionate?

Total damage from H1N1:

 

61 million cases of H1N1, more than 274,000 hospitalizations and 12,469 additional deaths specifically attributed to that strain of flu virus in the U.S

Report: China Stopped Testing for COVID-19. That's Why There Are Zero New Cases

 

he world has taken heart from news that China has "flattened the curve" reflecting few to no new cases of COVID-19.

China's good news was reported by The New York Times Thursday, which trumpeted, "China Hits a Coronavirus Milestone: No New Local Infection."

nyt-no-new-local-cases-1024x444.jpg

The Washington Post reported, "China reports zero new local coronavirus infections."

 

NBC News reported China's National Health Commission's report about there being no new COVID-19 cases from inside the massive country:

"China’s National Health Commission on Friday reported no new local coronavirus cases, which marked the second time it has done so since the epidemic began.
There were 39 new cases reported on the mainland Thursday, but all were called “new imported confirmed cases.” Deaths on the mainland rose by three, bringing the total dead to 3,248, according to the health commission’s numbers.

There have been 80,967 cases reported on the mainland in all, the national health commission said."

But a report out of Japan by Apple Daily HK says that rosy view from China is a lie.

"Report by @appledaily_hk , Japanese news outlet interviewed Wuhan doctors, and confirmed Wuhan has stopped testing, that is why new case = 0 there. They release people in quarantine early too."

 

According to that exclusive report, China has stopped testing for the coronavirus and that's why there are no "new" local cases.

The news was met with a gasp from the likes of Fox News's Brit Hume, who said, "I hope this isn't true."

But China has been shady in its reporting of the Wuhan-based virus. As we've reported, not only did China lie about the outbreak, it 'disappeared' doctors and other health care experts who worked on it and told outsiders what they knew. Li Wenliang, the first doctor who reported the virus outside of China, was subsequently silenced before he succumbed to the disease.

 

In January, China lied to the World Health Organization and claimed the virus could not be transmitted from human to human. WHO bought the line and it caused a lag in response time by the entire world.

There's a theory that the mortality rate is overblown because we don't know everyone that has or has had the virus. That makes sense, yet, as we do more testing and more cases are revealed, the mortality rat has risen to 4.3%...

That's because its targeted testing.  Only ppl with symptoms are getting tested and that produces more positives than if it were a random population in the sample.

Politicians are just fucked up on both sides. This stimulus bill should be simple, but the Dems are adding pork barrel bullshit that has nothing to do with the crisis. This is why I refuse to align with either side.
