According to the Graun:

"The World Health Organization insisted Monday that it sounded the alarm on the novel coronavirus right from the very start and had hidden nothing from Washington about the deadly pandemic.

The WHO chief, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said there were no secrets at the UN agency after facing scathing criticism from Washington, which has accused the organisation of initially downplaying the outbreak in China.

“We have been warning from day one that this is a devil that everyone should fight,” Tedros told a virtual briefing in Geneva.

Tedros said the presence of embedded US government secondees working at the WHO headquarters in Geneva meant there was nothing being concealed from Washington. "
 
Since you think that the truth doesn't matter, what does matter to you?
Outside of my family, nothing.

The truth hasn't mattered for a couple of decades now. What matters is what politicians can get enough people to believe to get them elected or re-elected. In the case under discussion what the US President said six weeks ago was a hoax has now become the China Virus, spread by WHO incompetence.

Far more interesting than Trump's antics is the number of people on here typing "socialist lies" or similar to anything not on message. What matters to you? And please don't say "The Truth". I can't afford to vomit on my laptop.
 
See I'm not finding anything to support the part in bold. Quite the opposite actually. I'm not saying WHO are great in any way, just that I'm trying to find evidence of a lot of the finger pointing against WHO ref this particular virus, and haven't found it. Tawain behaved AS IF the virus was able to spread from Human to Human, before that was confirmed. They were cautious and some would say clever. We and many others were not. Seems to me we farmed out responsibility to WHO then didn't bother listening to what they said. Now we blame WHO.

14 January 2020

WHO's technical lead for the response noted in a press briefing there may have been limited human-to-human transmission of the coronavirus (in the 41 confirmed cases), mainly through family members, and that there was a risk of a possible wider outbreak. The lead also said that human-to-human transmission would not be surprising given our experience with SARS, MERS and other respiratory pathogens.

WHO Timeline - COVID-19
Some truth in that..... Reminds me of the British Army Officer in Korea talking of been in a sticky situation and the US Commander discounting the understated commentary, as the neighbouring non-UK units screaming for help.... WHO may well in an aside be giving out concerns, but unless they're push the panic button, most countries were happy for them to deal with the issue, as its in their remit.

Remember the virus for many people had symptoms similar to that rough feeling you get from long air travel and without obvious ebola symptoms, many of those affected barely noticed the problem. The WHO should have gone public immediatly about the lack of china being forthcoming.

Taiwan has a healthy cynicism about anything the chinese government comes out with and its one of the lessons learned, that in future the UK Government is a fool to believe china on anything.

What do you think the US President said was a hoax six weeks ago? You are conveniently leaving the impression that he could have said that the coronavirus threat was a hoax. But, as I already pointed out, that is a lie. That that particular lie was repeated and spread by many socialists may be cause enough to characterize it as socialist, but I'll leave that to others. He should probably stop using the word hoax to refer to the daily lies that have been produced to attack him, as well as speak more directly about everything.

Eleven weeks and four days ago would be when the US President established the first travel restrictions from China due to the threat of the current coronavirus.

How long did his nose grow whilst he was making that statement?

Excellent post.

It's a great example of how social media can be manipulated to spread disinformation and deflect attention away from the incompetence of the Trump administration in dealing with Covid 19.

And you believe that nothing was concealed by China?

That China has no influence on Tedros?

That there was no delay in reporting how potentially serious this new virus was?

Just interested in what you actually believe and not what you post the Graun reports.

Like everyone else on here I don't know.

I suspect that they lean on people when it suits their purpose just as all other governments do.

I suspect that they have concealed facts about the virus.

Unlike a lot of people on here though I don't automatically assume that China=bad every time.

Chinese the inhabitants.

The CCP, those in present charge...=bad every time!!!
