" silence by the WHO" - any surprise? Most of its inept staff starting with Tedros should be sacked. On the other hand, the unelected members of the IOC are concerned about the millions and the sponsors - NOT about human lives.

Someone who escapes to another country to avoid a trial is a crime itself whether you live in a developed country or an underdeveloped one. Ghosn was obviuosly worried about the unaccounted millions that had disappeared. He SHOULD be held to account and given a fair trial to prove his innocence.

I personally think that most people around the world have lost faith in scientists and researchers. There are so many contradictory statements and theories. The WHO mission which was sent to Wuhan was a BIG JOKE. Its members were under Chinese pressure. Mr Daszak and Embarak should have been sacked for conflict of interest. Please check out this link - drasticresearch.org.

The CCP has become the laughing stock of the world ! Simple examples : Tibet, Hong Kong, Taiwan, the concentration camps , etc... Do these Chinese rulers really understand their policies?

Sometimes I do not understand human logic. Puzzling. Surely, all it takes is a quick swab and you get the results in a few minutes. Problem solved and no fuss.

What a cheap way to sell a tacky looking item with Putin's face on it. Does the Russian company that makes this chocolate bar have any connections with the tsar Putin? I wonder

'Property speculation ' ...The Chinese mafia moved to Venice years ago buying up coffee bars, restaurants, etc.. Most locals are not happy with this invasion and the property speculation it has caused. Nobody knows about its dealings either -all shrouded in mystery. Another problem for a unique and beautiful city like Venice.

@ Aly Rustom. I totally disagree. This is NOT a political move by the EU. The Kent variant has reached countries as far afield as Japan and Vietnam. Now the Indian variant ( in the UK) risks further threats to European countries and the rest of the world . Each country has the right to protect its citizens. Well done EU .

Well, of course Boris Johnson and his crony Hancock will deny all the allegations and keep lying. Deaths with COVID-19 on the death certificate is well over 152,000 according to different source. It is one of the highest in the world although they had plenty of time to prepare for this health emergency. Thanks Cummings.

@Fighto! Well said! Another clown from the IOC giving us lectures about arguments with no real scientific evidence. He is obviously calculating the $$$$ which will end up in his wallet. Disgraceful!

Any old trick by the IOC in order not to lose face and make millions of $$$$$$$. Sadly this is not the solution to this serious health crisis in Japan that may threaten thousands of lives.

@ Erik Morales. Disagree totally with your opinion. I don't know where you come from but who are to criticise Europe so badly. Weaker? Lost its influence? No vision? A joke. Are you an economist? Political analyst? Or simply basing your opinions on rumours or fake news?

You should retire mate and take a pay cut together with Bach, Coe, and the other clowns in your organisation. Shameless statements. Who is the IOC to make decisions that concern scientists, healthcare staff and human lives. It's about greed and money. Obviuosly.

@Luddite. Remember that the UK voted not to be part of European Union ( Brexit) but it geographically in Europe. Ask how many proud Brits really feel European with the current populist government.

There is definitely something fishy going on and some news media lies and cover ups. Is this unusual for a country like China? Surprise, surprise.

Step number one, remove all the useless scientists and advisors working for the WHO including Tedros who disasterly failed to save millions of human lives. Step number two, an urgent restructuring and reforming the WHO. Step number three, have an independent audit of the organisation ( payrolls, staff numbers and duties, commissions, and how contracts are awarded, etc...).

Please do not come. You are an unwelcome guest together with your cronies. You are obviously concerned about the millions and the sponsors and NOT about human lives. I wish an independent firm could audit such a corrupt and intransparent organisations.

"WHO staff, including its chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, say they have been working long hours during the pandemic ". Really? After their shambolic response to the pandemic which has cost MILLIONS OF HUMAN LIVES. I wonder how much Tedros and his cronies are paid for doing this job? Does anyone seriously trust anything the WHO says? The least Tedros can do is APOLOGISE and RESIGN!

Honesyly who wants to visit such a corrupt and undemocratic country? No free speech, no independent media, homophobic and discrimination against women. I would NEVER step foot in such a country.

@ EvilBuddha. Please remember that India is a highly corrupt country. The Asia Pacific region struggles to combat corruption and tackle the profound health and economic impact of COVID-19 (Source : Transparency international).

Big Pharma = $$$$$$$$$$$$. They don't care about scientifica data. MONEY and GREED.

We should all definitely blame both China and the WHO for this human tragedy which has caused the death of millions of innocent lives. No transparency and not one single resignation or sacking. Tedros and his cronies should be charged for CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY. This guy, Tedros, wants to stay for another term at the WHO. Laughable!

Cancel the Olympic games? But the IOC and its corrupt members ( Bach, Coates,..) have decided that these games must go on without listening to the scientists or following the data that is emerging on a daily basis. Laughable!

Just speculating - but I hope I am wrong. It could be someone from the extreme right trying to undermine Ardern's policies. A brainwashed Islamist or someone with mental health issues. Let's hope the investigation brings the truth to light.

So the whole world should be listening to a corrupt body called the IOC and not to scientists/ data/statistics. What a joke ! It's all about sponsors and money.

@venze. Agreed. It means billions of dollars profit for Big Pharma. It sounds like a special ad. I wonder why Big Pharma has not yet found an anti-malaria vaccine which kills millions of people in Africa. The answer? Because such a vaccine is not profitable. Profit before human lives.

Who should we be listening to this guy? Is he a scientist? The world has had enough of incompetent people working for the WHO , IOC, etc... It's all about money and greed.
