  • Hydroxychloroquine, once touted by Trump, should not be used to prevent COVID-19, WHO experts say

    Hydroxychloroquine should not be used to prevent or treat COVID-19, the World Health Organization (WHO) advised this week. The anti-inflammatory drug was once touted by former President Donald Trump, who said he was taking the treatment to prevent contracting coronavirus last spring. A panel of WHO experts found that the drug has no meaningful effect on deaths or hospitalizations due to coronavirus. They added that it may even increase the risk of adverse effects. With high certainty, "the guideline development panel made a strong recommendation against the use of hydroxychloroquine for individuals who do not have covid-19," the panel wrote...
  • WHO's COVID origin probe lacks credibility, scientists warn: Sounding alarm on team's public dismissal of lab leak theory, experts cite investigators' "fixed views," lack of access.

    Multiple scientists at major institutions around the world are sounding an alarm over what they say was an incomplete and unreliable investigation by the World Health Organization into the origins of the SARS-Cov-2 virus. The team, led by an international cohort of researchers, said last week that it was "extremely unlikely" that the virus escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, an infectious disease laboratory that has for years conducted experiments with coronaviruses — some of it funded by the U.S. government.The WIV is located just a few kilometers away from the Wuhan city "wet market" identified as the early...

    Internal documents that were leaked to The Epoch Times show that the Chinese communist regime has a large amount of data on influenza and other diseases that have symptoms similar to COVID-19, but did not disclose it to the World Health Organization (WHO) and the outside world. Since wrapping up an investigation into the origins of the global CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus pandemic, experts on the team assigned by the WHO have complained about the Chinese regime’s refusal to provide the related data. The Wall Street Journal reported on Feb. 12, that Dominic Dwyer, a member of the WHO...

    China’s ambassador to the United States suggested in a televised interview Sunday that the World Health Organization should investigate whether the coronavirus outbreak began somewhere in America rather than Wuhan. CNN host Fareed Zakaria asked Ambassador Cui Tiankai if the virus had leaked out of a Wuhan lab before becoming a global pandemic. "I think when people make accusations, they have to prove these accusations," Cui replied, telling Zakaria that WHO scientists were currently working in the city to "look at all the facts." Zakaria asked if that meant those scientists have been granted "full access to China" during the...

    CONAKRY (Reuters) - The World Health Organization has asked six African countries to be alert for possible Ebola infections, as Guinea on Tuesday reported new cases and Democratic Republic of Congo said its new infections were a resurgence of a previous outbreak. Guinea declared an outbreak of the virus on Sunday in the first return of the disease there since the 2013-2016 outbreak, while Congo has confirmed four new cases this month. Health authorities have rushed to respond to the cases in Guinea, anxious to prevent a repeat of the last outbreak in West Africa, which killed more than 11,300...

    As the global public health crisis continues, it is useful to reflect that its cause is the actions and policies of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Their conduct has been reprehensible. They have suppressed whistleblowers and information, destroyed lab samples and prevented the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) from gaining access when it might have blunted a global outbreak. Let’s examine the timeline of the origins of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Last December, China knew the virus was transmitted human to human. Between Dec. 27, 2019, and Jan. 5, 2020, five firms and...

    After four weeks of so-called COVID-19 investigation in Wuhan, China, including two weeks of quarantine and some sightseeing, World Health Organization investigators delivered the Chinese Communist Party a propaganda victory. While dismissing the likelihood that the coronavirus leaked from a Wuhan lab, the WHO now endorses the CCP’s conspiracy theory that the coronavirus originated outside of China and came into the country through frozen food products.Given the WHO’s shameful history of letting Beijing’s politics dictate the organization’s pandemic responses and all the revelations of China’s cover-up in the early days of the pandemic, even the Biden administration is skeptical of...

    The World Health Organization (WHO) investigation into the origins of the coronavirus has been met with skepticism and disbelief in some quarters. The Taiwan News referred to the investigation as a “farce” after its initial press conference stated with near certainty that the virus did not originate or leak from a Wuhan lab. At the time, the investigation had been underway for only a month, and reaching any conclusions about where the virus didn’t originate seemed very premature.But the WHO isn’t in control of the investigation. That much, at least, is clear. China dragged its heels in giving approval for...

    Peter Ben Emerek of the World Health Organization (WHO) proclaims it “extremely unlikely” that the coronavirus causing COVID-19 leaked from China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV). According to the WHO, the issue warrants no further study. But evidence is emerging that the Wuhan lab deliberately engineered the virus. The story begins in Canada. This month Canada removed Dr. Xiangguo Qiu, a virologist from Tianjin, China, and her husband, Keding Cheng, from the nation’s Public Health Agency because, as Karen Pauls of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) reported on February 6, the pair had previously been removed from Canada’s National Microbiology...

    BEIJING—Chinese authorities refused to provide World Health Organization investigators with raw, personalized data on early Covid-19 cases that could help them determine how and when the coronavirus first began to spread in China, according to WHO investigators who described heated exchanges over the lack of detail. The Chinese authorities turned down requests to provide such data on 174 cases of Covid-19 that they have identified from the early phase of the outbreak in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December 2019. The investigators are part of a WHO team that this week completed a monthlong mission in China aimed at...

    Republican Sens. Josh Hawley of Missouri and Rick Scott of Flordia have introduced a bill to withhold U.S. taxpayer funds from the World Health Organization until it makes leadership reforms. The legislation introduced Tuesday called the World Health Organization (WHO) Accountability Act aims to hold the WHO accountable for what the senators allege to be playing a role in China's early coverup of the COVID-19 pandemic when it was just starting to spread through China. "Time and again, [WHO] has prioritized advancing the Chinese Communist Party's interests over building a healthier world," Hawley said in a Tuesday statement, naming WHO...

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Ingraham Angle,” World Health Organization adviser Jamie Metzl criticized the organization’s investigation into the origins of the coronavirus for not taking a serious enough look at the possibility of an accidental lab leak and saying that “the actual investigation was done by Chinese authorities. And so, the W.H.O. investigators were basically receiving reports from the Chinese officials.” Metzl said, “Well, the investigation itself was very short. It was two weeks of quarantine and two weeks of meetings, but the actual investigation was done by Chinese authorities. And so, the W.H.O. investigators were...

    A high-profile member of the World Health Organization’s recent "investigative" trip to Wuhan to uncover the origins of COVID-19 has accepted research grants from the Chinese Communist Party and runs a controversial U.S.-based organization which collaborates with the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Peter Daszak’s ties to the Chinese Communist Party call into question the validity of his and the World Health Organization (WHO) investigative team which concluded that it is “extremely unlikely” COVID-19 came from a Chinese Communist Party lab. Their claims echo Chinese Communist Party narratives, and Daszak himself implored the world to not “rely” on U.S. intelligence for...

    So, according to the World Health Organization‘s latest findings, it is most likely that the COVID-19 virus jumped from an animal to a human. It is unlikely that the pathogen spread due to a leak from a lab in Wuhan. The WHO did not rule out the possibility of a lab leak entirely, but made clear they would not investigate that thread any further. The WHO, of course, has proven itself to be far from trustworthy on matters related to China and the coronavirus. The international organization last January repeated a false claim from Chinese authorities that there was no...

    A World Health Organization-led team investigating the origins of COVID-19 determined Tuesday that it’s “extremely unlikely” the virus leaked from a Chinese lab. The team that visited the Chinese city of Wuhan, where the outbreak first emerged at a seafood market in late 2019, said more work is needed to identify the source of the novel virus that has killed 2.3 million people worldwide. “Our initial findings suggest that the introduction through an intermediary host species is the most likely pathway and one that will require more studies and more specific targeted research,” WHO food safety and animal diseases expert...

    I've been sitting on this post for a long time. Anthony Fauci has some explaining to do. A lot. People on the left tend to get bent when someone properly refers to COVID 19 as the "Wuhan" or "China" virus. The fact is, it is did originate in China. There's really no doubt that it originated in a lab. Dr. Anthony Fauci has said this virus might never disappear because it is so contagious “I do not believe it would disappear because it is such a highly transmissible virus. It’s unlikely it is going to disappear." How did it get...

    The team of World Health Organization researchers that has been in China over the past few weeks trying to determine how the novel coronavirus started in that country says the disease is unlikely to have leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology and more likely jumped from an animal to a human. The conclusion was announced Tuesday as the team concluded its investigation. The Chinese government said when first reporting the virus outbreak in late-2019 that it started when a woman bought and ate a bat at an exotic, outdoor food market in the city of Wuhan. However, U.S. lawmakers...
