A bit of history from Hot Air:

One Year Ago: Wuhan Went From Calm To Panic As China Clamped Down On Reporters
Yesterday an independent panel set up by the World Health Organization concluded that China and the WHO itself had failed to act quickly enough to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

In a report issued to the media Monday, the panel led by former Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and former New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark said there were “lost opportunities” to adopt basic public health measures as early as possible.

“What is clear to the panel is that public health measures could have been applied more forcefully by local and national health authorities in China in January,” it said.

Exactly one year ago today, a Chinese journalist traveled to Wuhan to report about the outbreak of a new pneumonia. He quickly found that police were preventing any reporting about the Wuhan wet market or what was happening inside local hospitals. He filmed what he could anyway, using his cell phone to record his frequent interactions with police. The reporter could never publish his video in China. In fact, he was warned by his boss to follow the party line. Eventually, he gave his video to Al Jazeera which published it yesterday as part of a 50-minute long investigative report.

President Trump addressed this in his State of the Union speech two weeks later (February 4th).  He said:

“Protecting Americans’ health also means fighting infectious diseases,” Trump said during the State of the Union address in early February.

“We are coordinating with the Chinese government and working closely together on the coronavirus outbreak in China. My administration will take all necessary steps to safeguard our citizens from this threat”

This is the same speech that Pelosi tore up when he was finished speaking. Petulant little entitled bitch. So much about these people has been revealed. Dark forces at work.
