'Global pandemic alert system not fit for purpose': WHO report critical of China's & its own responses to Covid crisis

rt - 1 month ago

China, other governments and the WHO itself didn't act fast and decisively enough against the novel coronavirus, allowing it to become a pandemic, an interim report by an independent WHO panel on the handling of the crisis 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," the panel, led by former New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark and former Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, noted.

The first cluster of Covid-19 cases, in Wuhan, was reported to the WHO's China office on December 31, 2019. The whole city was swiftly quarantined; however, the virus swiftly spread around the globe, infecting more than 93 million and killing over two million people over the next year.
