According to the State Department, China, Russia and Iran are colluding to blame the Chinese coronavirus crisis on the United States despite its origination in Wuhan, China.
The State Department broke the news to the House Committee on Oversight and Reform. Townhall received a copy of the report, showing how the World Health Organization along with China mislead the rest of the world on the severity of the coronavirus.
The report also noted how China, Russia and Iran are teaming up to pin the blame on the United States:
According to a cybersecurity report, Chinese state-run media has attempted to shift the blame for the pandemic away from China and instead painted China as a global leader in the response to the pandemic. A spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry has openly blamed U.S. servicemembers for originating the virus in China. China further censored and detained any Chinese official, including doctors, who tried to warn of the true origins of the virus.
The State Department has confirmed Chinese, Iranian, and Russian state-run media are all promoting similar messages in an effort to blame the U.S. for COVID-19. Further, China is attempting to use propaganda regarding its pandemic response to convince the world that socialism, communism, and authoritarianism are better than freedom, liberty, and representative government.
The report continues by noting how China and the World Health Organization mislead the rest of the world early on by silencing whistleblowers and keeping many things secret:
The global health community relied on these early Chinese reports to plan responses in other countries, and such underreporting may have led other countries to operate under false assumptions regarding the spread of the virus … These preliminary investigations included China jailing any doctor that disseminated any information about COVID-19 not first cleared through state-run media. Additionally, the WHO failed to promote in a timely manner Taiwanese warnings of human-to-human transmission in December 2019; Taiwan is not currently recognized by the WHO as an independent nation. On January 23, 2020, the WHO finally recognized human-to-human spread was occurring – a month after the first warnings.
By the time the WHO declared COVID-19 a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) on January 30, 2020, the disease had infected almost 10,000 and killed almost 1,000 people in nineteen different countries. The Guardian has reported the delay in the PHEIC declaration was a result of intense pressure from China. While making the declaration, Dr. Tedros said “China is to be congratulated for the extraordinary measures it has taken to contain the outbreak.” Since then, there have been over 2.5 million new cases and 175,000 deaths worldwide.”
