China’s failure to share information in the early stages of the epidemic and provide access to international public health experts has exacerbated the global crisis, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said on Sunday.
Blinkon told NBC’s “Meet the Press”, “I think China knows that Kovid shouldn’t have done this in the early stages,” and one of the consequences of this failure is that (the virus) has quickly disappeared and I think Otherwise, there could be more serious consequences. ”
The secretary promised that the United States “will be a world leader in helping to ensure that everyone is vaccinated.”
Blinken said the epidemic underscored the need to “ensure a more robust global health care system to prevent it from happening again” to ensure the global public health crisis is resolved. Blinken said that the World Health Organization must be strengthened and reformed, and “China must participate in it.”
