WHO Tedros Said From Wuhan He Can Go Anywhere But WHO Silent on Guterres Evasion

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

UN GATE, Nov 27 – The World Health Organization media briefing of November 27, while featuring hand-picked questions from China's CCTV, Turkey's Andalu, Reuters and El Mayadeen while again refusing to take Inner City Press' questions on UN official's evasions, featured Doctor Tedros letting China off the hook. In fairness and specificity, Doctor Tedros said to start where first "reported" cases were, in Wuhan, China, "then we can go anywhere."

  In response to Inner City Press' tweet on this, WHO Communications Director Gabby Stern to her credit (unlike UN Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming) responded, that "Actually  @DrTedros  said the investigation should start in Wuhan, where the first cases were reported, and then the next steps will be decided based on the scientists’ findings. Thanks!"

 Equally grateful on this day after US Thanksgiving Inner City Press replied to spokesperson Stern, "So why does WHO repeatedly take questions like this from Chinese state media, and today El Mayadeen, while refusing to take question on UN officials' own evasions of quarantine rules, like UNSG  @AntonioGuterres told FOSS? Thanks in advance."

  While awaiting response, Inner City Press specified, "You para[prase]  @DrTedros  as 'next steps will be decided based on the scientists’ findings' - what he said was, 'from there we can go anywhere.' [Audio here, from 42:35.] Still waiting for WHO answer on UNSG  @AntonioGuterres  bragging he'd go to Boston not New Hampshire to meet Lisbon plane." Still waiting - watch this site.

  The question taken from CCTV was whether the virus started elsewhere than Wuhan or China. Tedros replied that while the investigation might start there, it could look anywhere. Reference was made to Italy.

Tedros looked relieved, and "Margaret" who chose at least one terrorist organization's questions did not take Inner City Press, which has publicly exposed UNSG Antonio Guterres for bragging to FOSS, also on Zoom, about evading quarantine regulations, about similar evasions by his Deputy Amina J. Mohammand (back and forth from Nigeria to Ghana and now where?) and USG Lacroix (where does he even live?). Today's UN system is a scam.

 Back in May a question that got through about Taiwan was ignored by Doctor Tedros and referred to his lawyer, Steven A. Solomon who spun Taiwan's December 31, 2019 email, claiming it was not a warning at all that the the exclusion of Taiwan is required by a UN decision. Thou doth protest too much. When will Bruce Aylward testify under oath, so he can't say, I can't hear your question, can you move on to the next one? And then hang up? Video here.

   The United Nations in South Sudan acknowledged internally that a staff member has tested positive for Coronavirus COVID-19, while claiming it is taking all precautions, see below. SG Antonio Guterres has refused to answer questions from Inner City Press about this, and about his own UN Security guards still using their gym. Video here.

  On April 19 after the UN bragged about unspecified discipline on an unidentified staffer who broke quarantine or self isolation and flew back to his or her unidentified country, Inner City Press exclusive obtained and published the South Sudan government document showing that government demanded information about the UN violation from the World Health Organization, here.

 After days of run-around, Inner City Press on April 22 was unblocked from WHO's virtual press briefing, set to begin at 11:30 am, New York time (5:30 pm in Geneva). Inner City Press "arrived" in the WHO / Zoom waiting room at 11, and immediately raised virtual hand to ask question. It was the first media to do so.

  But when the WHO briefing began, the questions went to French RFI, two media from India, the New Humanitarian, and a man from Greece who asked about soccer (or football).

 Ironically, WHO's Michael J. Ryan spoke about the UN, Robert Piper and Mark Lowcock, while not answering on the UN's own practices. Yet? We'll have more on this.
