The U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission declared that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) “undermined global health” by pushing for Taiwan’s exclusion from the World Health Organization (WHO) in the face of the outbreak of the CCP Virus.
“Beijing’s Deadly Game” prevented the WHO from addressing Taiwan’s attempts to share information that allowed it to contain within its territory the potential damage of the virus, which is still causing millions of infections and hundreds of thousands of deaths worldwide.
“The lives lost as a result of these missteps offer a tragic reminder of how global health is compromised by the WHO’s politically motivated exclusion of Taiwan,” the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission said May 12.
“The spread of the virus to 185 countries with more than 4 million confirmed cases and 286,000 deaths worldwide as of May 12 demonstrates the deadly ramifications of the CCP’s influence over the WHO for the international community’s pandemic preparedness” the U.S. commission charged.
“The U.N. was founded to serve as a venue for all voices, a forum that welcomes a diversity of views and perspectives, and promotes human freedom,” the U.S. mission to the United Nations had emphasized, insisting on Taiwan’s admission to the organization.
“Barring Taiwan from setting foot on U.N. grounds is an affront not only to the proud Taiwanese people but to U.N. principles,” the mission added in a tweet.

In addition to preventing Taiwan’s participation in international arenas as the independent nation it is, the CCP intends to militarily intimidate the country by invading the airspace that separates it from the mainland China.
“With the world distracted by COVID-19, China also intensified its multifaceted pressure campaign against Taiwan,” the review commission reported recalling that in 2019 the CCP had carried out this military maneuvers once, but this year it had already repeated it three times.
Likewise, many complaints have been raised against the CCP for the controversial handling of the pandemic.
