WHO's handling of coronavirus one of 'the greatest scandals in modern history'


China and the World Health Organisation’s failure to act when the novel coronavirus COVID-19 was still in its early stages is one of the “greatest scandals in modern human history”, according to Sky News Digital editor Jack Houghton.

China’s deadly coronavirus coverup in the early days of the crisis more than doubled the number of people now infected across the world according to a recent study.

The findings were contained in a damning University of Southampton report which found if the Chinese Communist Party and the World Health Organisation had heeded warnings a single week earlier infection could have been reduced by 66 per cent.

If the WHO had acted just three weeks earlier nearly 95 per cent of today’s infections and deaths would not have happened.
