On Coronavirus Botswana 5 Cases As UN Guterres Complicit Hiding Chinese UN Bribes

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - CJR - PFT

UN GATE, Feb 1 ā€“ How captured by China is UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres? The latest example is Guterres remaining inactive, in order to please China, on the spread of the deadly Coronavirus, thereby among other things putting UN system staff at risk. 

  Guterres inaction and failure takes place even as, for example, Botswana disclosed at least five cases.

 In the increasingly corrupt UN, at the January 27 noon briefing from which Guterres banned Inner City Press for the 573rd day, his spokesman Stephane Dujarric who refused all 10 of Inner City Press' written questions was asked, "on corona, did the UN evacuate any personnel from China?

And Dujarric replied, No, not that Iā€™m aware of."

 On January 29 Inner City Press asked Guterres, Dujarric and Melissa Fleming in writing without answer: "January 29-1: On Coronavirus, are UN interns and contractors in Wuhan and elsewhere in China covered by any UN health insurance?"

 Nothing from the corrupt UN of Guterres, while his scribes ate out of the hand of China PR, here.

  Meanwhile this on January 30 from the US State Department: "The Department of State raised the Travel Advisory Level for China to Level 4 ā€“ Do Not Travel on January 30, 2020 due to novel coronavirus.  This replaces the previous Travel Advisory issued on January 29, 2020.   The full text of new Travel Advisory is as follows:  China ā€“ Level 4: Do Not Travel  Do not travel to China due to novel coronavirus first identified in Wuhan, China. On January 30, the World Health Organization has determined the rapidly spreading outbreak constitutes a Public Health Emergency of International Concern. Travelers should be prepared for travel restrictions to be put into effect with little or no advance notice. Commercial carriers have reduced or suspended routes to and from China.  Those currently in China should consider departing using commercial means. The Department of State has requested that all non-essential U.S. government personnel defer travel to China in light of the novel coronavirus.   In an effort to contain the novel coronavirus, the Chinese authorities have suspended air, road, and rail travel in the area around Wuhan and placed restrictions on travel and other activities throughout the country. On January 23, 2020, the Department of State ordered the departure of all non-emergency U.S. personnel and their family members from Wuhan. The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in Hubei province.  The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a Warning for all of China."

  So how corrupt and irresponsible is Antonio Guterres?

 But China would prefer it not be publicized, and therefore Guterres who both needs their vote for a second term and covered up his links to UN briber CEFC China Energy says nothing, even as robo-comments and expressed canned concern on much less problems.

  CEFC China Energy paid bribes in and through Guterres' UN to Chad's Idryss Deby and Uganda's Sam Kutesa and, evidence showed, Yoweri Museveni. Guterres even even commissioned an audit, as Ban Ki-moon did of Ng Lap Seng's South South News.

   CEFC China Energy offered money to Lisbon-based Gulbenkian Foundation, whose payments to Guterres were not included on his UN public financial disclosure covering 2016. Guterres then had roughed up and banned now 572 days and counting Inner City Press which asked him about it.

  Guterres' spokesman Stephane Dujarric claimed on camera to be answering banned Inner City Press' questions - but he is not answering written questions, and USG Melissa Fleming denies without any explanation Inner City Press' applications to enter the UN like hundreds of state media, many from China. They and Guterres are corrupt, and is covering up for China. We'll have more on this - watch this site.
