(Liberty Bell) – Sen. Martha McSally is calling the World Health Organization out for “covering up” China’s deplorable behavior in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, demanding that the director of the globalist organization should step down.
During an appearance with Fox Business’ “Mornings with Maria” on Thursday, the Arizona Republican called for WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus to step down over his organizations’ handling of the Wuhan, China-bourne outbreak.
“I’ve never trusted a communist. And their cover-up of this virus that originated with them has caused unnecessary deaths around America and around the world,” McSally told host Maria Bartiromo of the Chinese Communist Party.
The reports that China fudged their numbers at best have been unrelenting, and the evidence damning that they, along with a compliant WHO, hid the fact that the virus was transmitted person-to-person from the rest of the global community for enough time for it to spread to its current prominence around the world.
McSally, a freshman Senator who is up for reelection in November, charged that the WHO failed in their oversight of Chinese data reporting and that Tedros, who has been the director since 2017, must step down.
“The WHO needs to stop covering for them. I think Dr. Tedros needs to step down. We need to take some action to address this issue. It’s just irresponsible, it’s unconscionable what they have done here while we have people dying across the globe,” she told Bartiromo.
Earlier this week, Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) also accused the WHO of “helping Communist China cover-up” the extent of the virus and called for Congress to launch an investigation.
McSally agreed, asserting that “we need to look at addressing the WHO as well,” and suggesting that US debts to China “should be forgiven, as a minimum.”
Amazingly, despite their clear forfeiture of duty, the WHO is defending their behavior.
A spokesman for the organization claims that they expect members to “to report data in a timely and accurate manner.”
“Membership in WHO and signing up to the International Health Regulations both carry with it the responsibility to prioritize public health, nationally and internationally, not only because global health norms say so, but because the two are inextricably linked, as this global pandemic has made clear to the world,” said Tarik Jašarević. He did not, however, specifically address McSally’s remarks, according to Politico.
An analyst for that outlet, Ian Bremmer, noted during an appearance on the “Fox News Rundown” podcast on Thursday that the WHO has been “carrying a lot of water for China because they want access and they want the funding.”
During a press conference about the pandemic on Thursday, the 55-year-old Tedros, a politician from Ethiopia, claimed he was “deeply concerned” about the “rapid escalation and global spread” of the virus.
“Over the past five weeks, we have witnessed a near exponential growth in the number of new cases, reaching almost every country, territory, and area,” he said.
“There’s been a deluge of fantastic, scientifically based, evidence-based publications coming in on a daily basis,” Tedros said.
“I think we need to be very careful also not to be profiling certain parts of the world as being non-cooperative or not transparent,” he added. “And we need to look at transparency across the board, and we need to look at solidarity across the board.”
