We all have witnessed since the very beginning of the outbreak of the coronavirus the veil pulled over China. When the outbreak began in Wuhan, panic, along with questions arose among the Chinese people who watched all these behind the scene, corruption took place. The world now knows China withheld a lot of valuable information. But China was not the only one. The World Health Organization also knew what was happening and refused to answer any questions which came from Taiwan.
Taiwan accused the WHO of ignoring them and their questions, which put the people in harm’s way while China excluded all international bodies. The response from the WHO is Taiwan is not a state but a province which prohibits them from being a member.
Usually, when anything from the government tries to hide something, people tend to pull together. Within Taiwan, the people did their own thing, and it landed them reasonably well during this horrible time. They only had two deaths and 215 cases of COVID-19.
Since the beginning of the outbreak, we have witnessed the Chinese people uprising against the Chinese government. Taiwan realized they were not going to get anywhere with the WHO, and they kept them out of the process they used to contain the virus.
Here is the strange part, both China and the WHO claim they have given all the help Taiwan needed. This statement is false. But, why would the Chinese government and the WHO lie? Could it be they know that China was, in fact, the perpetrator in all this mess we are now facing? It’s a great answer as to why questions don’t get answered.
The Centres for Disease Control chief Chou Jih-haw stated they wrote to China and the WHO December 31. He requested information about the COVID-19 virus wanting to know if the virus originated in Wuhan and if the disease could be contracted through human to human contact.
Chou stated, “We asked them whether there’s a possibility of human-to-human transmission. We indeed asked them and reminded them of the matter. The WHO confirmed it had received the letter but did not respond to it.”
Wait, did everyone catch that? First, China and the WHO stated Taiwan had all the help they needed. Then the truth came out that they never responded to the letter. A big help, isn’t it?
Here are people with common sense. Kudos to Taiwan! The same day Health Minister Chen Shih-Chung, who sat next to Chou in the meeting, stated Taiwan immediately screened people coming in from Wuhan. By January 2, their emergency operations began in full effect. This ultimately gave Taiwan the upper hand and control of the virus.
Chen said they sent officials over to China in January and were refused to see patients or go to the Wuhan market where the virus was said to have originated. This set up red flags for the Taiwanese officials, and they moved quickly to secure and brace for the worst.
As the timeline moved on, January 12, the WHO said there was no evidence the virus could be contracted from humans to humans. By January 20, China confirmed the virus could spread from person to person.
The WHO told reporters they directly did not address Taiwan but informed China December 31 of a “pneumonia of unknown cause,” which we now know as COVID-19. Their statement was, “Since that time until now, WHO has regarded the event as very serious and applied the full range of attention to it from across the organization.”
Did everyone catch that statement too? “Since that time.” Yeah, this could have been done so differently, and China must pay for their transgressions and silence on the matter. The entire world fell victim to the COVID-19 in some form or fashion, and the Chinese government is still arguing about the facts.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang argued the facts of the outbreak. He claims the WHO considered Taiwan as part of China. This also is a false claim.
Taiwan contested the WHO for filing their cases under China. It’s funny how at first, Taiwan is not part of China, according to the WHO, and now it is. China had over 80,000 cases. Taiwan says they are not part of the China mainland. Maybe, China and the WHO does not want the world to know of how Taiwan battled and defeated the COVID-19. The answers are in the eye of the beholder.
