Flashback: Ron Klain Says Chinese Influence Delayed WHO Declaring Coronavirus Public Health Emergency
KLAIN: "I think the WHO is performing better now than it was during the Ebola response five years ago. I think new leadership has helped. But I think the delay in declaring a public health emergency an international concern reflected Chinese influence there. And I think, you know, the WHO is just one aspect of this response. They aren't going to treat people, they're aren't doing research. They're important, the U.S. should support the WHO, but we need to be involved directly, on our own, in China and with our allies."
