According to National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien China cost the world two months by covering up the Wuhan Outbreak.
Chinese Communist Party censorship of reports about the nascent coronavirus outbreak guaranteed that the infectious disease would spread around the world, according to one of President Trump’s top advisers.
“This outbreak in Wuhan was covered up,” said White House national security adviser Robert O’Brien at an event in Washington. “It probably cost the world community two months,” during which it could have responded.
O’Brien’s comments continued a diplomatic dispute that has unfolded alongside the international health crisis, as Beijing has sought to avoid political backlash over the outbreak amid a worsening rivalry with Washington.
“If we’d had those [two months] and been able to sequence the virus, and had the cooperation necessary from the Chinese, had a WHO team been on the ground, had a CDC team, which we’d offered, been on the ground, I think we could have dramatically curtailed what happened both in China and what’s now happening across the world,” O’Brien said.
This is the real story. This virus could have been easily contained had simple precautions been taken. The bottom line is that China must be held to account, not only by the US but by the entire world community.
