Skepticism meets WHO’s continued praise for China’s handling of coronavirus  (2020/02/13)

International media has turned its skepticism on the World Health Organization and its director-general, Dr. Tedros Adhanom. Some are asking whether he is overgenerous in his praise of Beijing's handling of the coronavirus outbreak. He denies any bias toward China, claiming Beijing's actions are commendable.

At WHO press conferences, officials have begun to field reporters questioning their impartiality toward China. This was one question posed after a forum on the virus.

Reporter
Has the Chinese government approached the WHO and asked it to stand up and say that China is doing a good job here? Was there pressure put on this organization? Did the Chinese government say to the WHO that it should give it praise? Because I’ve noticed a few organizations have done that, and I know how important saving face is in China.

Some analysts say the director-general’s grave expression and body language suggest he felt uncomfortable, perhaps personally targeted by the question. He proceeded to give an 11-minute answer.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom
WHO Director-General
We should tell the truth. And that’s the truth. China doesn’t need to ask to be praised. It’s true that we have seen many good things that are slowing the outbreak. This is a very serious virus, and China is doing many good things that are slowing the virus.

He was voluble in his defense of China and of the WHO itself.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom
WHO director-general
It’s a shutdown of Wuhan City and that helped in preventing cases from being exported to other provinces in China and the rest of the world.

Twitter users took to the WHO’s page to express their anger. A picture says a thousand words.

外媒問被中施壓講好話?譚賽德臉色難看

WHO秘書長譚德塞傾中,連外國媒體都看不下去,昨天的一場記者會上,就有媒體問譚德塞,肯定中國處理疫情,是不是因為中國政府施壓。譚德塞一開始臉色沉重,一開口仍強調事實會說話,中國的確在疫情中,有很多對世界有幫助的舉措,引起不少網友到WHO推特下嗆聲。

武漢肺炎疫情仍持續發燒,持續幫中國說好話的WHO,近日屢遭國際媒體質疑,在一場疫情論壇後的記者會上,世衛秘書長譚德賽,被媒體嗆辣提問。

[[記者]](EB)
“中國政府有沒有向WHO施壓,要求WHO站出來、稱讚中國防疫?中國政府有沒有跟WHO要求表揚?因為對中國而言面子很重要。”

一針見血的提問,讓譚德塞臉色越來越沉重,看了看身旁官員,譚德塞顯然知道,問題是衝著他而來,接過麥克風,這一講就是11分鐘。

[[WHO秘書長譚德塞]]
“我們應該說事實,而這就是事實,中國不需要要求我們肯定它。這是事實,我們看到有很多好的舉措,減緩疫情的爆發。這次的病毒非常嚴重,中國做了很多很好的舉措,抑制病毒的擴散。”

譚德塞洋洋灑灑,為中國和自己辯護。

[[WHO秘書長譚德塞]]
“中國採取行動,關閉武漢這座城市,這避免疫情傳到其他省份和其他國家。”

不過看看WHO推特上,網友可是一點也不領情。對WHO有多不滿,這裡的圖文已經說明一切。
