(TheRedWire.com) – The World Health Organization is investigating the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic in China. It appears the Chinese communist government is not being very cooperative. Their reluctance to provide WHO investigators with specific information is leading to more questions about transparency from China. Specifically, the WHO wants to learn if COVID-19 spread in the world’s most populated country before December 2019, when communist authorities said the first symptoms were reported.

Scientists believe if the worldwide community had known the disease was spreading earlier, they might have been able to stop it before becoming an international pandemic. According to the WHO, 90 patients in central China experienced COVID-19-like symptoms two months before the virus was identified.
The Chinese government isn’t allowing the WHO to review the necessary data to perform a comprehensive study. Member countries of the WHO usually offer all the data available to investigators. The WHO says the Chinese government did provide some data, but it’s not nearly enough.
