The World Health Organization has said that early stages of the COVID crisis was alerted by its own office in China, and not by the Chinese government when the first pneumonia cases in Wuhan was reported. The WHO has been accused of failing to provide the information needed to stem the pandemic. It was also accused of being complacent towards China. US President Donald Trump has been openly accusing WHO for its failure and has blocked the funds. In that chronology, WHO had said only that the Wuhan municipal health commission in the province of Hubei had on December 31 reported cases of pneumonia. The UN health agency did not, however, specify who had notified it. WHO director Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a press conference on April 20 the first report had come from China, without specifying whether the report had been sent by Chinese authorities or another source. But a new chronology, published this week by the Geneva-based institution, offers a more detailed version of events.
