U.S. officials are concerned about a new outbreak of respiratory illnesses in China, particularly affecting children.

Hospitals in northern China are overwhelmed with sick children, leading to questions from the World Health Organization about the outbreak.

U.S. Ambassador to Japan Rahm Emanuel said, “China’s recent pneumonia outbreak raises serious questions, and the World Health Organization is asking them.”

“It’s time to abandon COVID deception and delays as transparent and timely information saves lives,” he continued.

Issuing the challenge to China that, “Full cooperation with the international community is not an option, it’s a public health imperative. Will Beijing step up?”
This comes after the COVID-19 pandemic, which was marked by deception and cover-ups from China and the WHO.

There are concerns about transparency and cooperation in addressing the current outbreak.

The WHO wrote in a statement, “Since mid-October 2023, WHO has been monitoring data from Chinese surveillance systems that have been showing an increase in respiratory illness in children in northern China,”

Adding, “Today, WHO held a teleconference with Chinese health authorities in which they provided requested data on respiratory illnesses among children in Northern China.”

“The data indicates an increase in outpatient consultations and hospital admissions of children due to Mycoplasma pneumonia since May, and RSV, adenovirus and influenza virus since October,” continued the polarizing institution.

“Some of these increases are earlier in the season than historically experienced, but not unexpected given the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions, as similarly experienced in other countries,” concluded the WHO.
