Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) Tuesday called for a congressional inquiry into the World Health Organization (WHO) over its response to the coronavirus, accusing the group of “helping Communist China cover up” the full extent of the virus’s spread. Scott, a vocal China critic, has voiced concerns about the relationship between the WHO and Beijing in the past and said the health organization “failed” to get adequate information from China out to the public.
“The mission of the WHO is to get public health information to the world so every country can make the best decisions to keep their citizens safe. When it comes to Coronavirus, the WHO failed. They need to be held accountable for their role in promoting misinformation and helping Communist China cover up a global pandemic,” Scott said in a statement.
The article goes on to state the following:
The Florida Republican went on to accuse the WHO of distributing Chinese “propaganda,” citing messages where it praised investigations by Chinese authorities into the coronavirus, which first broke out in Wuhan, China. Scott suggested that the lack of an investigation into China’s dubious claims over its number of COVID-19 cases and deaths “cost lives” and merited a closer look at the funds the WHO receives from the U.S.
“We know Communist China is lying about how many cases and deaths they have, what they knew and when they knew it – and the WHO never bothered to investigate further,” Scott said. “As soon as Congress is back in session, there should be a hearing, along with a full investigation, to review whether American taxpayers should continue to spend millions of dollars every year to fund an organization that willfully parroted propaganda from the Chinese Communist Party.”
*Coronavirus cases worldwide: 836,894
