Robert O’Brien: ‘We’re Being Pretty Tough on China’

‘Some folks are looking how to deal with China going forward’


O'BRIEN: "Well, I think we are being pretty tough on China. Look, there are lawsuits that have been filed by folks out there. Some countries are looking at how to deal with China going forward. We certainly are. But remember, this is the fourth or fifth plague that's come out of China since 2000. We had the Avian flu, SARS, H1N1. And so whether these are coming out of labs that have sloppy procedures, whether they’re coming out of the wet markets that are really horrific if you watch some of those things, we have got to stop this. We have to stop the export of these viruses from China. We are going to make our position and we have made our position on these issues very clear to the Chinese. I think it’s becoming a worldwide call now that China has to come forward with the information. I mean, if you take a look at how they have handled the virus with the whistleblowers disappearing and news men and women from the 'Wall Street Journal' and 'New York Times' being kicked out of the country, and you contrast that to how Taiwan or Singapore or other countries have handled this, there is just a real big disparity there and we have to get to the bottom of what happened."
