Nikki Haley says the World Health Organization (WHO) should be investigated for pushing the Chinese Communist Party’s propaganda that the coronavirus could not be transmitted through human-to-human contact.
Haley is the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and the former governor of South Carolina.
“Look at the timeline. You got December 30th: Taiwan goes and tells the W.H.O. ‘we believe and have evidence that there is human-to-human transmission,'” Haley told “Fox & Friends.”
“Then you have January 14th: The head of the WHO, Tedros Adhanom, says, ‘We don’t see any evidence of human-to-human transmission.'”
Experts agree that if China and the WHO had alerted the world to this fact, COVID-19 could have remained a local outbreak and not exploded into a global pandemic.
This was posted by the WHO on January 14th. The WHO owes an explanation to the world of why they took China’s word for it. So much suffering has been caused by the mishandling of information and lack of accountability by the Chinese. https://t.co/SooEnEPsjJ

Haley continued: “Then a week later, there’s an emergency meeting to decide if this is an international crisis. They don’t make a decision on that day. Instead, Tedros travels to China to meet with them. A week later, he comes back and says, ‘This could be an emergency but you don’t need to limit travel and you don’t need to limit trade.'”
Haley pointed out that despite the WHO’s insistence that the coronavirus was not highly contagious, President Trump imposed a travel ban on China and was attacked as a racist.
“The President does it anyway and Tedros criticizes him for doing that,” Haley recalled. “The American people have every right to ask the WHO questions. The American people deserve to know why Taiwan was ignored and China was listened to.”

Nikki Haley says she knows from her past experience as a United Nations ambassador how incompetent many U.N. bureaucrats are.
“I have dealt with those guys at the U.N. for a long time,” Haley said. “That’s what they do. They turn the tables whenever they are criticized. And they have to be held accountable just like we would hold any American agency accountable.”
The WHO is a branch of the United Nations that’s responsible for “international public health.” As usual, the United States is the single largest contributor to the WHO’s budget. In 2017, the U.S. contributed $500 million to WHO.
Despite this, the WHO (and its parent, the United Nations) continues to bite the hand that feeds it by ignoring America’s pleas for transparency and honesty so it can protect its citizens.
Tedros Adhanom, an Ethiopian, is the first WHO director-general who is not a physician. He was elected to his job after China backed him in the May 2017 election.
Many observers say this is why Tedros appears to be taking his marching orders from the Chinese Communist Party.

On February 8, a Change.org petition was launched demanding the resignation of Tedros Adhanom as WHO director.
The petition reads: “We strongly think Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus is not fit for his role as WHO Director General. We call for the Immediate Resignation of Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.
“A lot of us are really disappointed, we believe WHO is supposed to be political neutral [and it’s not].”
The petition has garnered more than 800,000 signatures.
Reminder: Career government bureaucrat Dr. Anthony Fauci — who wrote gushing love letters to Hillary Clinton — has lavishly praised Tedros.
Dr Fauci: WHO boss 'really an outstanding person', done 'very well' on coronavirus.
Jan 14: No clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of coronavirus
Feb 7: Masks don't necessarily protect you
Feb 22: No benefit to stopping international travel pic.twitter.com/R69p9BkcXl
