There is a ‘real concern’ WHO suppressed information at pandemic’s beginning

There are doubts the World Health Organisation can be trusted in the event of another pandemic as a review found if it acted quicker the pandemic could have been avoided entirely. Perth USAsia Centre CEO Gordon Flake says this lack of trust is “the driving force” behind reforms and pushes for transparency. “There is a real concern that information was suppressed early on in China and that’s what led to the delays and that’s what led to the outbreak,” he told Sky News. “When it comes to combatting global pandemics or any other area of international relations, transparency is key and a lack of transparency costs lives and clearly we’re seeing that a year plus on.”
