We aren’t done investigating the origins of this.
In a recent speech, HHS Secretary Alex Azar surprised many when he admitted that the United States learned about the coronavirus after Taiwan notified us about it.
According to Breitbart, Azar stated, “We learned about an outbreak of pneumonia of unknown origin in Wuhan, China on December 30, not through that country’s official channels, as required under the International Health Regulations, but through media monitoring that we do, as well as through a notification from Taiwan’s Economic and Cultural Office here in the United States. That’s right. One of the very first ways the U.S. government was notified of a novel virus in mainland China was by people from Taiwan.”
