62 countries open front against China

Over 62 countries, including India, have questioned China and the World Health Organization (WHO). All these countries are demanding a fair investigation.
All countries want to know the answers to these questions.

India has officially signed a document demanding an investigation on behalf of the European Union and Australia, supporting these countries.
India will ask for an answer from WHO
India will support the demand of 62 countries participating in a two-day important conference of the World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva to conduct a fair, independent, and holistic assessment of the global response system to the COVID-19 crisis and animal husbandry of deadly infections. It is a matter of locating the source.
The two-day 73rd gathering of the WHO’s World Health Assembly (WHA), starting Monday, comes in the backdrop of continued pressure by US President Donald Trump to investigate the genesis of the virus in China’s city of Wuhan. A verbal war is going on in China and America over this issue.
Taiwan will not be able to attend the WHO meeting
The World Health Organization (WHO) is scheduled to meet annually this week amid the corona epidemic. Taiwan was to be included as an essential member of this.
But Taiwan has not been invited due to pressure from China. Taiwan’s Foreign Minister Joseph Wu gave this information.
These countries are supporting the fair investigation

China admits initial samples were destroyed.
According to the news reported in the New York Post on Sunday, China has assumed that it had destroyed the initial samples of the coronavirus spread in the country.
Liao Dengfeng, a supervisor of China’s National Health Commission, said the Chinese government issued an order on January 3 to destroy the coronavirus sample in unauthorized laboratories.
He claimed that the samples were destroyed as a precaution keeping safety in mind. He also said that the decision was taken to stop the virus from spreading.
China was accused of hiding information about the infection.
China is accused of hiding information about the early days of the transition.
Talking about the latest developments, the top officer and doctor Zhong Nanshan, who played a crucial role in the battle with Corona, also revealed that the local authorities had hidden the primary information related to Corona.
However, the Chinese government had already denied allegations of information hiding.
WHO accused of favoring China
The WHO and its director-general Tedros Adhanom Gebreyes are also accused of favoring China over the outbreak of the Coronavirus. The main reason for this is that the former Ethiopian minister became the head of the WHO in 2017 with China’s support.
America stopped funding of WHO
The US had stopped funding to the World Health Organization (WHO). Donald Trump said that the US is blocking WHO funding.
Trump accused the organization of favoring China and said that its role in mismanaging the spread of the Coronavirus and hiding its information would be assessed.
WHO is China’s public relations agency: Trump
US President Donald Trump called the world health body Beijing’s public relations agency. Trump said, “I think the World Health Organization should be ashamed of itself because it is acting as China’s public relations agency.”
The Trump administration is investigating the role of WHO in the entire case of the Coronavirus.
WHO praised China despite criticisms
Even after being criticized by Donald Trump, the WHO praised China for tackling the coronavirus epidemic. He said that other countries should learn this from Wuhan. See how normalcy was restored at the center of the virus.
Serious charge on WHO
Recently a German newspaper ‘Der Spiegel‘ made a prominent disclosure, claiming that China had requested a delay in issuing a global warning to the WHO regarding the Coronavirus.
According to this article, Chinese President Xi Jinping himself called the World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanam to issue a late warning about Corona.
The magazine based its report on information from the Federal Intelligence Service.
WHO rejects the report
The WHO has rejected this report from the German newspaper. The WHO has issued a statement saying that such descriptions are misleading, which reduces the organization’s morale in fighting the epidemic from Corona.
The WHO has said that this report is entirely baseless and deceptive. The statement said that on January 20, the Coronavirus was reported to spread from human to human.
Taiwan had already warned the WHO
Despite its proximity and relationship with China, Taiwan succeeded in preventing this global epidemic from spreading. Vice President Chen Chien-jin said that on December 31, Taiwan had warned the WHO that the virus spreads from person to person.
Chen said that Taiwanese doctors had discovered that the doctors and other medical staff treating the disease in Wuhan were falling ill. But WHO did not take this information seriously nor confirmed it in time.
China considers Taiwan as its province and has been demanding separation from all international organizations. In contrast, Taiwan describes itself as a separate democracy where the people who fled from China in 1949 settled.
