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

People were banned for bringing up those concerns, yet here we are with another ‘conspiracy theory’ looking even more credible.

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.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the probe didn’t adequately analyze the possibility of a lab accident before deciding it’s most likely the pathogen spread from bats to humans via another animal. In a briefing to member countries Tuesday, he said he is ready to deploy additional missions involving specialist experts.

“Although the team has concluded that a laboratory leak is the least likely hypothesis, this requires further investigation,” Tedros said in a statement. Although the WHO chief has consistently said all lines of inquiry are open, Tuesday’s comments mark the first time he’s speculated about the possibility of an accidental escape.

Afterward, a group of more than a dozen nations issued a joint statement saying the mission’s report “lacked access to complete, original data and samples,” and called for more transparency and timeliness in response to future outbreaks.”

What is China hiding?

For Tedros to say what he said is stunning, and it tells us that there is likely some very interesting things happening behind the scenes.

China has lashed out at anyone demanding transparency, launching a nearly year-long trade war with Australia after the country merely called for an independent inquiry, and throwing out a bunch of false claims trying to blame other countries and regions (Italy, the US, Africa) for the virus.

In short, the Chinese Communist Party seems like they have something to hide, and if even the WHO is complaining about this we can be sure there is much more to be discovered.
