We still do not know who the 17 Chinese national members on the China-WHO team are.

That's ~50% of the team whose names and affiliations we still don't know, months after the study was set up.

2. I want to know who gave Trump the order to fire the entire US Pandemic Team.

 

Doubt Donald Trump even knew we had such a thing.

Who told him to get rid of this Team?

3. John Bolton had a hand in it as national security advisor. Because of course.

https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2020/3/14/21177509/coronavirus-trump-covid-19-pandemic-response

When Bolton became Trump’s national security adviser in 2018, he quickly moved to disband the White House National Security Council’s Directorate for Global Health Security and Biodefense, which President Barack Obama set up after the 2014-2016 Ebola outbreak to lead federal coordination and preparation for disease outbreaks.

In April 2018, Bolton fired Tom Bossert, then the homeland security adviser, who, the Washington Post reported, “had called for a comprehensive biodefense strategy against pandemics and biological attacks.” Then, that May, Bolton let go the head of pandemic response, Rear Adm. Timothy Ziemer, and his global health security team. The team, the Directorate for Global Health Security and Biodefense, was never replaced.

At the time, the Trump administration and Bolton argued the cuts were needed to streamline the National Security Council.

4. Bolton..I had forgotten about him! Figures.

 

The wheels for a complete authoritarian takeover of US Govt were well in place.

Trump was the distraction. The forces were well in place & had dug in for the final coupe de gras, hidden neatly behind the media's new showman.

Bolton huh.
There've been so mant rotten characters floating in & out of sight with Trump its hard to keep track, & they're all no good

Appreciate the info!

5. We nearly started an Ebola outbreak in DC in the 1980's due to a lab leak... fortunately,

Ebola Reston was only infectious to monkeys...

So, if it happened, the Chinese need to give it rest with the cover-up. Shite happens with infectious diseases.
