WHO condemned for supporting China’s deadly exotic food and bat markets



The World Health Organisation has ignored desperate calls from global leaders to ban China’s deadly and diseased exotic markets which were likely the cause of the killer coronavirus.

WHO general manager Tedros Adhanom has failed to act on a bipartisan letter from more than 60 US lawmakers pleading with him to shut down every wet market in the world.

Instead, Mr Adhanom’s organisation – which has been criticised for its ties to China – has supported reopening the exotic food markets.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison described the decision as “unfathomable” saying the wet markets were a “global health threat”.

“Australia and the world will be looking to organisations like the WHO to ensure lessons are learned from the devastating coronavirus outbreak,” Mr Morrison told The Australian.

“There must be transparency in understanding how it began in Wuhan and how it was transmitted. We also need to fully understand and protect against the global health threat posed by places like wet markets.”

However, the WHO, which ignored early warnings of COVID-19 because it listened to false Chinese reports, says it supports the wet markets reopening in China.

“With adequate facilities, proper regulation and good hygiene practices it is possible to have safe food sold in wet markets,” the WHO told The Australian.

Democratic Senator Cory Booker spearheaded the US request for a wet market ban, but he had support from all political parties, including Republicans Michael McCaul and Mike Quigley.

“It is clear that to protect human health, these close and sustained interactions with wildlife must stop,” the politicians wrote in the letter.

“As this pandemic continues to threaten the lives of millions, pushes healthcare systems to the breaking point, and devastates economies around the world, it is imperative that we all take action as a global community to protect public health.”

The World Health Organization has been silent on the issue which is also believed to have caused the 2003 SARS outbreak.

The letter also went to the United Nations – the body which funds the WHO.

  • The WHO is a joke. People shouldn't take them seriously just like those magazines that publish fake news stories, like woman marries Bigfoot. The WHO doesn't care about people's health. It's a major goal and purpose is to gain money and it's second, to exert its influence on society for its own interest. For example, The WHO director-general Tedros, the man is a string puppet for the Chinese communist party having praised China’s efforts taking away any blame towards the CCP. Why? Probably because he accepted bribes of cash and prostitutes from the ccp. That's what the WHO is all about; making money and exerting it's influence for their own gain.. It uses health as a front, it dosen't care about anyone.

  • The wet markets are actually not the cause. The Wuhan market is a SEAFOOD market. Ask anyone who’s been there. They do not sell bats. Only seafood and some game. The Wuhan Institute of Virology however, is located some 4km away from the seafood market, a level 4 facility which houses dangerous infectious diseases and viruses. Need I say more??
