Following multiple accusations that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) covered up the pandemic caused by the CCP virus, a group of researchers based in Switzerland confirmed that it could have been contained earlier.

The Independent Pandemic Preparedness and Response Panel (IPPR) stated in its findings that it is still unclear why it took so long to declare the international health emergency, according to Anadolu Agency Jan. 20. 

“It is not clear why the [emergency] committee did not meet until the third week of January, nor is it clear why it was unable to agree on the [PHEIC—Public Health Emergency of International Concern] declaration,” the IPPR statement contains.

It further states, “What is clear to the Panel is that public health measures could have been applied more forcefully by local and national health authorities in China in January,” according to the Indian media outlet The Week. 

Some specialists issued the concept that if the alert had been announced a couple of weeks earlier, 95 percent of the disaster that occurred and is still happening in the world could have been avoided.

The former President of the United States, Donald Trump, was one of the first to point out the CCP’s and the WHO’s failures and, consequently, sanction the WHO by suspending the funding provided by his country in April.

He then took another step in this direction. He withdrew the U.S. from the WHO, pointing out its failures in its controversial handling of the pandemic, including suspicions of alliance with the CCP, which sought to gain unethical advantages negotiating protective equipment.

Likewise, the Department of State stated, The U.S. government has reason to believe that several researchers inside the WIV (Wuhan Institute of Virology) became sick in autumn 2019, before the first identified case of the outbreak, with symptoms consistent with both COVID-19 and common seasonal illnesses.”

“This raises questions about the credibility of WIV senior researcher Shi Zhengli’s public claim that there was ‘zero infection’ among the WIV’s staff and students of SARS-CoV-2 or SARS-related viruses,” the paper adds.

Meanwhile, former UK Secretary of State for Work and Pensions Ian Duncan Smith called Beijing despicable for covering up vital information about the CCP virus. 

A video was recently released in which Chinese doctors claim they knew about the mortality of the CCP virus months before it spread but were forbidden from divulging that knowledge. 

Daily Mail noted that the Wuhan medical professionals’ testimony is supported by leading virologists, including Dr. Yi-Chun Lo, an infectious disease specialist and deputy director-general of the Taiwan Centers for Disease Control.
