The World Health Organization (WHO) might be in bed with China's communist government. This is the takeaway some are having from a recent video that appears to show a senior official, Canadian doctor Bruce Aylward, dodging a reporter's questions about the way Taiwan has handled the Wuhan virus epidemic.
In recent months, Aylward has saluted the Chinese government for its handling of the Wuhan virus.
Many are shocked that he refused to speak about Taiwan, because Taiwan's response to the epidemic has been regarded as one of the best in the world, with less than 400 confirmed cases and just five deaths reported so far.
Cardinal Joseph Zen of Hong Kong remarked on social media last week, "Aylward, the so-called expert of the WHO, pathetically [shied] away from answering the question about Taiwan's membership and performance — twice — by pretending not to hear the reporter and cutting the call. How [is it] possible we can trust WHO?"
In December and January, the WHO announced the Wuhan virus was unlikely to spread person-to-person, repeating Chinese communist propaganda and ignoring warnings to the contrary from Taiwan.
Now, many fear the organization supposedly committed to protecting people's health is busy instead colluding with the communists in Beijing.
