National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien: China’s Coronavirus Cover-Up Cost the World Two Months
China’s “cover-up” of the coronavirus cost the world community two months of time to respond, Trump National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien said Wednesday during a think-tank event.
“Unfortunately, rather than using best practices, this outbreak in Wuhan was covered up,” he said at the Heritage Foundation in response to a question about China’s handling of the virus.
He noted that doctors were silenced or put in isolation so that word of the virus could not get out.
“It probably cost the world community two months to respond,” he added.
