Exclamation Unmasking WHO as a China Apologist


too hot not to note

ALG Editor’s Note: In the following featured column from the New York Post, as Americans opt for cloth masks, the China apologist World Health Organization questions the utility:

Unmasking WHO as a China apologist

By Miranda Devine

Last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reversed its position and recommended that Americans wear masks after all, even if asymptomatic.

On Monday, the World Health Organization, as if it hasn’t caused enough trouble, decided to contradict the CDC.

“Masks alone cannot stop the #COVID19 pandemic,” WHO said in a flurry of 12 tweets.

“What is clear is that there is limited research in this area.”

Then it pumped out a confusing, five-page paper claiming: “There is currently no evidence that wearing a mask . . . by healthy persons in the wider community setting . . . can prevent them from infection.”

But that flies in the face of a study from Singapore, cited by the CDC, that healthy people can spread the virus without symptoms. N95 masks needed by health workers are in short supply but even homemade cloth masks are better than nothing.

The unhelpful mask conflict is typical of the toxic pointlessness of WHO. It is worse than useless. It is what it accuses masks of being: a costly distraction that lulls you into a false sense of security.

What’s it been doing in the 17 years since the last deadly respiratory virus, SARS, emerged from China?

WHO was wrong about *COVID-19 from the start. It bought China’s lies and then praised its “transparency.”

Taiwan warned Dec. 31 that the virus was contagious. Two weeks later, as China was punishing doctors and destroying virus samples, WHO tweeted the Chinese line that there was “no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission.”

It wasn’t until March 11, after the virus had taken hold around the world, that WHO declared a pandemic.

No wonder the president finally directed his ire this week at WHO, a United Nations agency, and threatened to cut its US funding for failing to warn the world about the disaster brewing in Wuhan.

“They [WHO] seem to be very China-centric,” he said. “They err on the side of China. They called it wrong. They could have called it months earlier . . . They should have known.”

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus responded Wednesday with a threat: “If you don’t want many more body bags you refrain from politicizing it.”

Really? This is Mafia talk.

Not once has Tedros criticized China’s malfeasance, including the hoarding of medical supplies, which caused shortages of protective gear, especially the masks WHO tells us we don’t need.

The single most effective measure taken in this country to slow the infiltration of the virus was made against Tedros’ vehement opposition: the president’s China-flight ban on Jan. 3, for which he was slammed as a xenophobe.

After the ban, Tedros tweeted: “The greatest enemy we face is not the virus itself; it’s the stigma that turns us against each other.”

It’s not stigma sending Americans to hospital gasping for breath. It’s not stigma piling up bodies in refrigerated trucks in Brooklyn.

We must never again trust woke transnational bureaucracies.

Instead, we should follow de Blasio’s lead and wear any mask we can find. If WHO is against them, it’s a fair bet they’re worthwhile.
