Former National Security Adviser John Bolton condemned China for its handling of the coronavirus outbreak and called on the rest of the world to "act" and hold the communist government accountable.
Chinese President Xi Jinping and his Communist Party have been accused of silencing doctors and critics in the early stages of the coronavirus, costing thousands of lives.
Now that they have seemingly turned the corner in tackling the virus at home, the communist-run nation has now positioned itself as the country ahead of the coronavirus curve, and has routinely made unsubstantiated claims that the U.S. is behind the crisis.
In turn, President Trump has routinely referred to coronavirus as the "Chinese virus".
Despite no longer seeing eye to eye with President Trump, Bolton, a notorious hawk, took China to task Saturday morning for their role in the spread of the virus.
"China silenced coronavirus whistleblowers, expelled journalists, destroyed samples, refused CDC help, and concealed counts of deaths and infections. It's fact there was a massive coverup. China is responsible. The world must act to hold them accountable," the former U.N. ambassador tweeted.
The World Health Organization's director-general kicked off his Friday by praising China's efforts to contain and control the coronavirus.
In an early-morning tweet, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus applauded Beijing for its handling of the global pandemic, which China is largely blamed for spreading.
"For the first time, #China has reported no domestic #COVID19 cases yesterday. This is an amazing achievement, which gives us all reassurance that the #coronavirus can be beaten," Tedros tweeted.
On its surface, the praise seems harmless enough.
It is encouraging that the world's most populous country-- ground zero of the crisis-- has reported no new cases of the deadly disease. But a deeper dive into the cozy and symbiotic relationship between Tedros and Chinese President Xi Jinping has some crying foul.
On March 11, the WHO finally declared the coronavirus a global pandemic. While some praised the move, others like Bradley Thayer, a political science professor at the University of Texas, San Antonio, and Lianchao Han, the vice president of Citizen Power Initiatives for China, questioned why the WHO and its director-general waited so long when health officials from various governments alerted them to the widespread devastation weeks in advance.
WHO DECLARES CORONAVIRUS GLOBAL 'PANDEMIC'
Thayer and Han have accused Tedros of turning "a blind eye to what happened in Wuhan and the rest of China" and after meeting with President Xi Jinping in January, helping him suppress the "severity, prevalence and scope of the COVID-19 outbreak."
As of Friday, there have been 246,275 confirmed cases of COVID-19. The United States saw a 51.3 percent increase from the day before putting the number of cases at 14,250. The death rate jumped 36.7 percent to 205. Worldwide, the number of fatalities from the coronavirus pushed past the 10,000 mark. Italy now has the dreadful distinction of having the most deaths in the world.
The coronavirus has been traced back to Wuhan, China, with the first case surfacing in late November, weeks before the Chinese government claimed it had. Since then, it has spread around the world, closing schools, halting industry and tanking financial markets. Entire nations have been put on lockdown.
CORONAVIRUS: COMBINATION OF ANTIMALARIAL MEDICATION AND ANTIBIOTICS COULD SHORTEN COVID-19, RESEARCHERS SAY
On Thursday, the White House announced that it would cancel an in-person meeting of G7 leaders at Camp David in June. Instead, the heads of state will hold a video conference. As much of the world puts emergency plans in place, China has emerged - through their own aggressive public relations campaign aided by Tedros -- an international hero offering aid to countries desperate for help.
The problem is that China's complacency at the beginning of the outbreak helped create the crisis. The WHO accelerated it.

Before the US economy disintegrates into nothingness — Will any so-called expert out there also notice that the WHO Director caused a global coronavirus panic over a basic math error?
* * * * * * * * * * *
The controversial Ethiopian politician and Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, claimed in a press conference in early March that the fatality rate for the coronavirus was many multiples that of the fatality rate of the common flu.
This egregiously false premise has led to the greatest economic panic in world history.
The Director General of the WHO spoke on March 3, 2020 and shared this related to the coronavirus:
While many people globally have built up immunity to seasonal flu strains, COVID-19 is a new virus to which no one has immunity. That means more people are susceptible to infection, and some will suffer severe disease.
Globally, about 3.4% of reported COVID-19 cases have died. By comparison, seasonal flu generally kills far fewer than 1% of those infected.
Here is the video of Dr. Ghebreyesus’s remarks.
This statement led to the greatest panic in world history as the global elite media shared and repeated that the coronavirus was many, many times more deadly than the common flu.
The problem is his statement is false.
It was not accurate!
“The United States calls on China’s leaders to refocus their efforts from expelling journalists and spreading disinformation to joining all nations in stopping the Wuhan coronavirus,” the NSC wrote in a tweet posted Tuesday.
POOH’S LYING NOW
Communists consider religion to be the opiate of the masses. Both the Soviet Union and communist China have oppressed the religious. Bernie Sanders promises action against Christians, whom he calls ‘religious bigots.’
Most communists do not believe in God. Their god is the ‘state.’ The state can do no wrong—it is both omniscient and omnipotent. It is perfect and incapable of mistakes. Heretics who doubt communism can face gulags or a bullet in the back of the head. In China, Mao starved millions of his own citizens for the good of the state. Nowadays, Chinese dissidents might even face having their organs ripped out of them. The state feels no guilt about any of this. After all, they consider humans to be data at best and at worst mere blobs of matter who are there to carry out the will of the state. The citizens must also pretend to be happy about it.
The problem with the perfect state of communism is the lies. The Soviet Union lied about nuclear technology and that led to the Chernobyl disaster. The current Chinese Communists are lying about the release of a bioweapon from one of their labs in Wuhan. The ChiComs must present themselves as incapable of error, so they’re now blaming the United States military for the virus. The ChiComs consider themselves to be perfect, therefore they will never admit a mistake. They never accept blame. Being wrong is a sign of weakness.
President Trump realized the United States has been wrong about trade with China. The US has become far too dependent on China for pharmaceuticals, for example. The ChiComs are now threatening to cut them off. It’s time to bring manufacturing back to America and that’s just what Trump wants to do. If we don’t do that, we’ll only have ourselves to blame.

New York (CNN Business)The New York Federal Reserve is taking out the big guns to calm panicky financial markets.
The NY Fed announced plans Thursday to inject vast amounts of money into the financial system, totaling at least $1.5 trillion. And the Fed promised to start purchasing a range of Treasuries -- a step that effectively marks a return to the 2008 crisis-era bond buying program known as quantitative easing, or QE.
The Fed said the dramatic moves will address "highly unusual disruptions" in the Treasury market linked to the coronavirus outbreak. This accelerates weeklong efforts by the NY Fed aimed at easing fears that companies will lose access to capital or that markets will become unhinged.
"The Fed is all in. They've fired their nuclear weapon. and they did it because financial markets are seizing up," said James Bianco, president of Bianco Research. "There is no liquidity in the markets. They are trying to unstick them."
Not only did US stocks nosedive Thursday, but the ultra-safe government bond market malfunctioned. Even though Treasuries are supposed to be the safest assets on the planet, liquidity dried up in that market, setting off alarm bells on Wall Street.
"The market in a sense broke today. The Fed came out and fixed it," said Peter Boockvar, chief investment officer at Bleakley Advisory Group.
Boockvar said there was a "blow out" in the gap between bid and offer in Treasuries, signaling a liquidity crunch in what is normally a very deep market. One way to look at it: The bond-trading engine seized up, and the Fed added oil to make it run smoothly again.
