Make ChiComs Pay: McCaughey

Biden needs to make China pay for its actions over COVID

OPINION, By Betsy McCaughey

President Joe Biden flew across the pond Wednesday to meet European leaders.

He said the goal was to “deliver real results” on critical issues such as climate change and cybersecurity. Yet the president is ducking the most important issue: the cause of the pandemic.

It’s true that in science, nothing is settled; new evidence could still emerge and point in another direction. But there is no doubt that China acted criminally once the virus began circulating in Wuhan in 2019.

Communist Party authorities hid the virus’ existence for weeks, denied that it could spread human-to-human, muzzled their own scientists and blocked outside scientists from investigating — all in violation of Articles 6 and 7 of the World Health Organization’s International Health Regulations.

Beijing is a repeat offender. In 2003, it hid the existence of the deadly SARS virus until it had spread worldwide, leaving a trail of death.

This time, Biden should be leading a multinational effort to isolate China, get answers and demand reparations. Without answers, warns Baylor physician and microbiologist Peter Hotez, there will be a COVID-26 and a COVID-32, meaning more viral disasters.
