Oh, they knew.

Oh, they knew.

Who is "they", and what did they know?

0 ( +5 / -5 )

The World Health Organization and around 500 experts have agreed for the first time what it means for a disease to spread through the air, in a bid to avoid the confusion early in the COVID-19 pandemic that some scientists have said cost lives.

Did the WHO collude again with China in making this decision?

What did they conspire to do? What is your theory?

@ /dev/random:

They=the powers that be.

What they knew=it was airbourne.

When they knew it=from the beginning.

Who are those "powers"? Or is it a secret and you can't tell?

What they knew=it was airbourne.

And "they" tried to hide that?

Ahh, this comment reminds me of those complete and utter morons who thought that the WHO should be political and that this would somehow further their mission to protect the health of the world. The same morons, bottom of the intelligence barrel, then went on about how the WHO was in China's back pocket.

I'm guessing most of those morons died of covid, since we don't see such comments very often anymore.

We still have some morons on podcasts babbling their whacko theories, and sheeple who believe them. And some of these morons later used Covid as an excuse to commit hate crimes against Chinese-Americans and ethnic Oriental/East Asian race people. And it's wrong.

The evidence (and the opinion of the experts) was conflicted at the beginning, this was a common occurence around the world.

imaginary conspiracies to avoid accepting science advances with new evidence is obviously unnecessary and illogical. Specially when the conspirators have nothing to gain from the conspiracy.

So a meaningless conspiracy theory then.

The WHO really admired China.

The WHO really admired China.

When you can't defend against an argument that only means it still aplies and debunk your invalid position, imaginary conspiracies to avoid accepting science advances with new evidence is obviously unnecessary and illogical. Specially when the conspirators have nothing to gain from the conspiracy.

WHO Praises China As Some Question Coronavirus Transparency

It's uncanny really. A certain group of people almost exclusively reads between the lines, to the point where they read things that do not exist. But on the few occasions when a diplomat actually uses diplomatic language to put a whole nation on notice without spelling it out, that's the only time they refuse to read between the lines and take it all at face value.

Just perusing briefly the vast resources, it is easy to find evidence of the WHO's failures in the face of the Covid crisis.

The WHO’s weak response to China’s mishandling of the COVID-19 outbreak has laundered China’s image at the expense of the WHO’s credibility.

the point is still the same, unrelated information (specially that runs contrary to what has been reported in the 4 years since) do nothing to support the imaginary theory that anybody (much less the WHO or China) benefit in a negative way from the definition of disease spread, without that benefit there is no need for a conspiracy to obtain it.

This is what the article is about and the argument you have failed to address the argument that demonstrate there is no merit in proposing a conspiracy that benefits nobody.

As for the WHO:

As for the WHO:

Repeating the same irrelevant claim, even when it has been rebuked completely with an argument means you are concedent that the argument is correct and your position wrong. Unrelated information (specially that runs contrary to what has been reported in the 4 years since) do nothing to support the imaginary theory that anybody (much less the WHO or China) benefit in a negative way from the definition of disease spread, without that benefit there is no need for a conspiracy to obtain it.
