"The Country Office notified the International Health Regulations (IHR) focal point in the WHO Western Pacific Regional Office about the Wuhan Municipal Health Commission media statement of the cases and provided a translation of it", the organisation said in a statement.
According to the American weekly news magazine The Washington Examiner, WHO changed the official timeline on their website removing the information about China reporting "a cluster of cases of pneumonia in Wuhan".
The changed official COVID-19 timeline on World Health Organization website now shows it clearly that Chinese authorities did not self-report the Coronavirus outbreak to the global agency, instead, the virus first came to the attention of World Health Organization when their officials came across Chinese media reports about a "viral pneumonia" outbreak. "The question now is whether the CCP will continue their false propaganda campaign that continues to claim they warned the world or whether they will come clean and begin to work with the world health community to get to the bottom of this deadly pandemic".
"WHO has been saying that knowing the source of the virus is very, very important".
But a new chronology, published this week by the global health agency, offered a more detailed version of the events.
The UN health body then asked the Chinese authorities on January 1 and January 2 for information about these cases.
China finally replied on January 3. US President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have both made repeatedly said that the virus has actually come from China. On May 18, Trump had given World Health Organization an ultimatum of 30 days to make "substantive improvements" after which, he said he would permanently freeze funding to it. The organisation said that it was alerted about the Covid-19 crisis by its own office in China and not by Beijing.
The WHO urged countries hit by serious coronavirus outbreaks to "wake up" to the realities on the ground instead of bickering, and to "take control".
The Solidarity Trial started out in five parts looking at potential treatment for the coronavirus: standard care; remdesivir; the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine; the HIV drugs lopinavir/ritonavir; and lopanivir/ritonavir combined with interferon.
