I cant really second guess anything the Trump or the WHO did. Trump does have a big mouth though.Did Trump destroy any credibility the US has by accusing the WHO of covering up for China, of the WHO being a puppet of China, of the WHO 'getting it wrong' when they should've listened to him... etc.
Or do we all actually all end up not really taking these things into long term account because we realize they have a context, and that there's a more important future to be working towards together?
Right away I wonder why this video says that on "January 9th, China finally admitted to the severity of the outbreak".Factually incorrect. Thankfully, Potholer has already dusted this off.
It's not a given.Shouldnt they have known right when they had the virus sequenced that it was Sars-like and likely human to human transmission was accoring?
Well in Trump's defense, covid isn't much of a threat to someone with his access to medical care, and who else is he even capable of thinking about anyway?By linking unsourced news pieces that contain assertions
It's not a given.
The sources you give me are unsourced news articles, and are flatly contradicted by the sources in the video, such as the WHO communications.
There's no doubt that China downplayed the danger, but there are shades of the McCarthy mind-virus at play in the way people are talking about China. The worst offenders for downplaying the danger, of course, were Drumpf and BoZo.

I get that. But where do we go from here? The western world has been supplying China with funds and scientists for years, specifically to guard against such an outbreak and China basically pissed on all of us in return.
