Internal documents that were leaked to The Epoch Times show that the Chinese communist regime has a large amount of data on influenza and other diseases that have symptoms similar to COVID-19, but hasn’t disclosed it to the outside world.
Since completing an investigation into the origins of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus pandemic, experts on the team assigned by the WHO have complained about the Chinese regime’s refusal to provide the related data.
Dominic Dwyer, a member of the WHO expert team and an Australian infectious disease expert, said that when the WHO expert team conducted an investigation into the source of the epidemic in Wuhan, the CCP refused to provide raw data of 174 COVID-19 patients in the early stages of the outbreak, The Wall Street Journal reported on Feb. 12.
The CCP also refused to provide data on pneumonia patients who may have been infected by the virus earlier than December 2019.
According to the report, the CCP only provided influenza surveillance data from before December 2019 from one children’s hospital and one general hospital. The report cites WHO experts who said that one of the reasons for the regime’s refusal to provide COVID-19 origin tracing data is its lack of early influenza data.
However, The Epoch Times recently obtained a number of internal documents issued in 2019 and 2020 by the Chinese regime’s health departments and centers for disease control that hadn’t been disclosed to the public. It’s unclear if this information was provided to the WHO.
In a response to a query from The Epoch Times, a spokesperson for the WHO said the body was “awaiting the full report of the international team that will have more details.”
The documents recorded sharp increases in influenza cases and clustered fever outbreaks of an unidentified pathogen, as well as a large cache of influenza monitoring data collected by the regime.
