Peter Cordingley the WHO Asia-Pacific spokesman has said that prompt notification was helping keep the virus in check after Pakistan announced its first human death and Burma (Myanmar) revealed its first human case.
Peter Cordingley also included China in his praise.
So Burma, China and Pakistan have been praised as being transparent with all the information regarding the H5N1 virus outbreaks by the WHO.
I find my self getting to be more and more like Senator John McCain of the flu web reporters!
Is no one else upset at the above?
Surely the excuse of “having to deal diplomatically” with these “transparent nations”, can not be accepted forever by those of us who see the results of such folly on almost a daily bases!
Hiding a potential pandemic is no better and can be far worse than hiding a rogue nuclear weapons program
