McCall presents interim report on the origins of COVID-19
The authors of the document concluded that China’s attempts to hide the virus and the WHO response contributed to the transformation of the local epidemic into a pandemic
Leading Republican on the House Foreign Relations Committee, Michael McCall, released an interim report on Monday following an investigation into the origins of COVID-19 and early responses..
The report includes sections on how the virus spread across China, how it spread to other countries, and why international regulations imposed by the CCP’s response to the SARS epidemic in 2003 were not followed. The report also contains recommendations to prevent similar situations in the future..
“After months of investigation, it became clear that the cover-up of the coronavirus by the Chinese Communist Party, especially in the early days of the outbreak, played a significant role in turning the local epidemic into a global pandemic,” McCall said. “And unfortunately, the World Health Organization, under the leadership of Director General Tedros [Adanom Ghebreyesus], only made the problem worse by repeatedly ignoring warnings about the severity of the virus, including from its own health experts, while echoing the CCP’s propaganda without independent confirmation of her claims. It was a failure of monumental proportions, and it is imperative to uncover the truth in order to develop precautions for the future and prevent similar situations from recurring. “.
The report draws on a variety of sources, including WeChat and social media posts from doctors and Wuhan residents, media reports, academic articles and research, think tank developments, and public assessments of American and French intelligence services.
As a reminder, McCall is the chairman of the China Working Group, which is responsible for identifying and addressing the most serious threats from the CCP. A more detailed report will be released in the coming months.
