Hiding Information: CIA Report: China Pressured WHO to Hide Info

On May 12, the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) issued a report, titled “U.N.-China: WHO Mindful but Not Beholden to China.” The report stated that China threatened to cut ties with the World Health Organization’s (WHO’s) coronavirus investigation team if the agency declared a global health emergency.

On May 8, Der Speigel, a German newspaper, published a German intelligence report that Xi Jinping personally requested that WHO Director-General Tedros not release human-to-human transmission information and delay the announcement of a public health emergency.
