WHO: “There is no secret in WHO”, had hidden nothing from US

WHO Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus

WHO: World Health Organization insisted that it sounded the alarm on the novel coronavirus right from the very start and had hidden nothing from Washington about the deadly pandemic.

In a virtual briefing in Geneva, WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said there were no secrets at the UN agency after being blasted by the US for allegedly downplaying the initial COVID-19 outbreak in China.

Dr. Tedros said the presence of embedded US government secondees working at the headquarters in Geneva meant there was nothing being concealed from Washington.
