The US said on Saturday that China should make available data from the early days of the Kovid-19 outbreak to the world so that better research can be done about the epidemic and we can be alert to such epidemics in the coming times. The first case of Kovid-19 was revealed in Wuhan city of China in December 2019 last year.
Since then, around 11 million people worldwide have been infected with the corona virus and about 2.4 million people have died. According to Johns Hopkins University, there have been 27189188 cases of infection in the US and 468103 people have died.
US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan has issued a strong-worded statement on the way the World Health Organization was informed of the initial investigation into the Kovid-19 outbreak. “We are concerned about the manner in which information about the preliminary investigation into the Kovid-19 outbreak was provided,” he said. It is necessary that this report should be independent, contain the opinion of experts and there should be no interference from the Chinese government in it.
“To understand this epidemic and prepare to deal with such epidemics in the coming years, China should provide data from the early days of the Kovid-19 outbreak to now. Sullivan said that all countries, including China, should adopt a transparent process to prevent health disasters, so that the world can get the benefits of it as soon as possible.
