WHO set pandemic response back by 2-3 weeks, says doctor on new federal task force

A prominent physician and key member of Canada’s COVID-19 Immunity Task Force says the World Health Organization (WHO) placed too much confidence in Chinese data on the outbreak and set back the world’s response by as much as three weeks.

“I think they were a little too deferential. They knew from SARS-1 that there had been problems with incomplete reporting,” Dr. David Naylor told CBC News Network’s Power & Politics Thursday.
