WHO and China should have acted more quickly

According to Pandemic Probe Panel WHO and China should have acted more quickly and applied public health measures forcefully in China in January 2020.

According to the chronology the early phase of the Covid-19 outbreak suggests that there was potential for early signs for authorities to act more quickly.

The virus was first detected in China’s city of Wuhan in late 2019 before it became a global pandemic that eviscerating economies and coasted more than two million lives.

According to the panel it is very clear public health measures could have been applied quickly and forcefully by national health authorities in China in January 2020 itself.

WHO was also late in acting as it not convened its emergency committee until January 22, 2020 and it declared Covid-19 PHEIC (Public Health Emergency of International Concern) after a week.

It is not very clear why WHO delayed their meeting and declaring emergency.
