Chinese officials refused to provide the World Health Organization with raw data on the earliest COVID-19 cases this week, as the virus’ origins remain a mystery.
A WHO team spent a month in China “investigating” the origin of COVID-19, but were denied data on 174 cases from December 2019 in Wuhan.
But the WHO has its own trust issues, after they recently removed a warning about the false positives inherent with PCR tests (Archived WHO page).
Bureaucrats can increase or decrease the amount of positive tests by changing the amount of cycles they decide to use. Handy if you want to get rid of political opponents.
