New evidence shows that Chinese authorities new the genetic sequence of the Novel Coronavirus four days before it told WHO that the disease was still unidentified. Genomics labs were told to stop testing and destroy all samples. China also banned the publication of any information about the disease, even as it was spreading beyond Wuhan to other Chinese cities and other parts of the world. China sat on crucial information for three weeks before locking down affected cities. This cover-up has probably cost thousands of lives and billions of dollars across the world.
