The US Government has called on China to make data from the earliest days of the COVID-19 outbreak available, stating it is imperative that the World Health Organization's COVID-19 report be independent and free of "alteration by the Chinese Government".
It is, but China won't.
Yeah, that's a given.
It's always easy to use hindsight to criticise.
WHO would have been in a difficult position whatever happened because it relies on countries to inform it when there are outbreaks of disease. China did not recognise there was a problem until late December and Italy put late years deaths amongst the elderly down to pneumonia and severe flu when we now know Covid was spreading there.
Initially China told WHO that they didn't think the disease was spread from human to human and it wasn't until the last week of January that this was proven.
Also no-one knew or suspected that many people spreading Covid had absolutely no symptoms and had no idea they were vectors for the disease.
Could the Covid pandemic have been prevented? I very much doubt it. The asymptomatic would have spread the disease across the world before anyone realised there was a problem.
I agree with you totally! But the US wants a scapegoat and China is their favourite. It is totally political and not science based. It reminds me of people you lent money too who then prefer not to meet you and turn into your enemies!
US scientists and of other countries have worked in and with the Wuhan labs and surely will go on doing so. - I get really bored with all that hypocrisy.
