Official congratulated China for reporting no COVID-19 cases
Calls are mounting in Congress for the World Health Organization's director-general to resign following allegations his group aided China's efforts to obfuscate the number of coronavirus cases in the country.
WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who goes by Dr. Tedrosthough he is not a medical doctorhas repeatedly lauded China's measures to contain the virus despite mounting evidence the communist regime has been less than forthcoming with the international community. A classified U.S. intelligence report recently concluded China lied about its internal spread and death toll.
Several Republican lawmakers told the Washington Free Beacon on Thursday recent events demonstrate Tedros is unqualified for his post.
"Dr. Tedros deceived the world," Sen. Martha McSally (R., Ariz.) told the Free Beacon. "Since the very beginning of this crisis, Tedros has parroted Chinese government talking points, even praising the communist party's transparency' during its coronavirus response efforts despite a mountain of evidence showing that the regime concealed the severity of the outbreak."
"At the direction of Tedros, the WHO provided cover for China for months as it attempted to shirk accountability for its bungled efforts to contain this virus," McSally added. "This deception cost lives."
Tedros has repeatedly praised China's response to the coronavirus.
"China is to be congratulated for the extraordinary measures it has taken to contain the outbreak despite the severe social and economic impact that it is having on China," Tedros said in February.
On March 20, he repeated China's dubious claim that it had "no domestic COVID19" cases, calling it an "amazing achievement."

Replace him with someone more moral and reliable.
Like Ted Bundy.
He murdered tens of thousands of people, just to do the will of China. He really should go to the Hague.
He has blood on his hands.
When was the last time anyone went to the Hague, btw?
What's the phone number? I'll do my part.
Who needs the WHO?
The WHO is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Communist China Dictatorship.
Just label it as such and let it fester in it’s leftist democrat media like juices.
Another corrupt, incompetent, affirmative action hire...
“In October 2017, he announced his senior leadership team, with women representing 60% of appointments. While Tedros received praise for his commitment to gender equality, he also received criticism for a lack of transparency. He appointed Dr. Tereza Kasaeva of the Russian Ministry of Health to lead the WHO Global Tuberculosis Program without soliciting civil society input; days before the appointment, civil society organizations had published an open letter calling for a competitive, open process to identify the Program’s new director.
In early 2020, Tedros oversaw the world’s management of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). According to the Georgetown professor Lawrence Gostin, his strategy was to “coax China to transparency” rather than to criticise it. Tedros offered “effusive praise” to China for its containment measures, describing them as a “new standard for outbreak control”, which was criticised in light of China’s efforts to suppress information. He was also criticised for the delay in declaring it a Public Health Emergency of International Concern.[12
On 18 October 2017, Tedros announced that he had chosen President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe to serve as a WHO Goodwill Ambassador to help tackle non-communicable diseases for Africa. He said Zimbabwe was “a country that places universal health coverage and health promotion at the centre of its policies to provide health care to all”. Mugabe’s appointment was severely criticised, with WHO member states and international organisations saying that Zimbabwe’s healthcare system had in fact gone backwards under his regime, as well as pointing out Mugabe’s many human rights abuses. It was also noted that Mugabe himself does not use his own country’s health system, instead travelling to Singapore for treatment. Observers said Tedros was returning a campaign favour. Mugabe was chair of the African Union when Tedros was endorsed as a sole African Union candidate in a murky process that did not consider qualified alternatives like Michel Sidibé of Mali and Awa Marie Coll-Seck of Senegal. His judgement was widely questioned on social media. The editor-in-chief of Lancet, a prominent medical journal, called Tedros “Dictator-General”. After a widespread condemnation, on 22 October 2017 Tedros rescinded Mugabe’s goodwill ambassador role.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Tedros was widely criticised by the public as he was perceived to have acted slowly in his efforts to stem the epidemic. In the first week of February 2020, he stated that there was no need for the world to take measures that “unnecessarily interfere with international travel and trade” such as worldwide travel restrictions. This was interpreted to have contributed to the spread of the virus.
There is a petition with over 500,000 signatures demanding the resignation of Tedros on Change.org.”
The WHO is as responsible for American deaths as is China.
Better yet, get rid of the WHO. This is only the tip of the iceberg and the corruption.
And China knew about that actually happening in December of 2019.
Communist China and WHO purposely unleashed this biological warfare weapon on the World in general and the USE in particular.
It was an act of war against the United States of America.
Well at least one good thing to come out of the coronavirus crisis is that China’s incompetent toadies are being revealed
and the *USA in partic....
Another reason to stop funding the WHO, NPR, PBS, the Legal Services Corporation, the Kennedy Center for the Arts, and a myriad of other useless outfits, and don’t forget the United Nations, a worthless piece of SHIT. Forgive me Jimbo for the expletive but I am sure you would agree.
WHO’s Tedros Adhanom Should be Tried for Crimes Against Humanity
just defund it
