  1. the theme this year is 2020 The Year In Hindsight

  2. You don’t have to be a WHO official to know this.

  3. Ok that’s good and all but also now is the time to act. We didn’t act a month ago, but all we have is the moment we’re in so act in that moment. What’s done is done, now we all have to do our part to stop it going further.

  4. Wait till we learn that the time to act on Climate Change was 40 years ago!

  5. The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second best time is now.

  6. Wasn’t the WHO protesting travel bans in January?

  7. How does this help at all?

  8. Every single time I see this guy’s face in a thumbnail it’s bad news.

  9. Yeah, WHO declared it a pandemic Mar 11. Should have done that Feb 25.

  10. No, the best time to act was when Taiwan warned you of what was happening in China in DECEMBER!

  11. Best time to act was a month ago. Next best time to act is now. Tired of hearing excuses.

  12. This man is very pro-Beijing and has lost his mind and integrity.

  13. Whats the point of saying some shit like that? It’s just giving people ammo to not shelter in place or take any cautionary measures.

  14. >”The time to act was actually a month ago, two months ago. … but we still believe there is opportunity,” he said.

    Also, two month ago, WHO officials were telling that [“their is no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission”](https://twitter.com/WHO/status/1217043229427761152) and [“effectiveness of entry screening is uncertain”](https://twitter.com/WHO/status/1222589500423122949) and that [“there is no reason for measures that interfere with international travel”.](https://twitter.com/WHO/status/1222969858574430217)

  15. It’s time to point fingers, instead of focusing on how we can beat this.

  16. Bert Kreischer, comedian, told a story on Joe Rogan’s podcast.

    He knows a lady that texted him over a month ago saying she was translating documents from Chinese to English and the Chinese were saying things were going to get really bad.

    That was the middle of February.

    Edit: for those that are interested

    JRE #1446

    Bert’s story starts at 1:10:25

  17. Why did you say “the stigma is more dangerous than the virus” then?

    WHO please go

  18. Also WHO: there is no need for travel restrictions

    ~start of Feb 2020

  19. The best time to act was last month.

    The second best time is today.

    We should learn from our mistakes, not try and dwell on them.

  20. Thanks captain hindsight!

  21. Water is wet, humans generally won’t willingly sacrifice even the tiniest bit of convenience *now* to avert future threats, and Epstein didn’t kill himself.

  22. For the life of me, I will never be able to figure out how some people honestly went from

    >*”The coronavirus is a demonrat hoax perpetuated by the mainstream media in an attempt to make Trump look bad and actually isn’t that big of a deal.”*

    to

    >*”The coronavirus is a very big deal and I am so proud of president Trump for tackling the issue head-on despite resistance and potshots from the democraps and the mainstream media.”*

    I wanted to think the right-wing alternate reality would never prove to be an actual problem. Now I’m not so sure anymore.
