China EXPOSED: ‘They weren’t ever open and transparent’ says Andrew Bridgen | World | News

Speaking to talkRADIO, Mr Bridgen said: “I think Donald Trump’s criticism of the WHO’s performance during this pandemic is valid.

“However I’m not convinced that cutting their funding at this moment is in the best interest in either America or the rest of the world.

“There’s going to be time after coronavirus is over for all countries to look at the strategy they’ve undertaken to deal with it.

“I don’t think anyone has got it perfect and will we ever know what the right strategy is until we’re out the other end of it.

“Sweden has got a very different strategy to the UK, they have a different demographic. About 85 percent of people live in rural areas.

“You’ve only got about 20 percent in the UK as we’re a much more densely populated country.

“Who is to say what the right strategy is for each country but I don’t doubt there will be a huge inquest into the performance of every country.

“What I do think is the Chinese communist government have not been open and transparent from the beginning. I really doubt they’ve only had 4,000 deaths in the whole of China.”

President Trump is in calls for an inquiry into the origins of the coronavirus, and questioned Beijing’s transparency over a pandemic that has now paralysed cities around the world.

China’s embassy in Canberra said Australian lawmakers were acting as the mouthpiece of Trump.

The embassy said in a statement: “It is well known that recently some people in the US including high-level officials have been spreading anti-China ‘information virus’.

“These days, certain Australian politicians are keen to parrot what those Americans have asserted and simply follow them in staging political attacks on China.”
