This week we look at U.S. intelligence reports indicating that China is concealing information on the coronavirus, ever-changing reports about the use of medical masks, and other bad or conflicting information in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
While people all over the world have been stuck at home recently, it’s a good thing for video streaming services like Netflix and the escape from reality they offer with the sensational new documentary series Tiger King. Meanwhile, as actual tigers are being confirmed among the latest to be infected by the coronavirus, we turn our attention to a brief U.S. Election update before examining concerning reports out of China in relation to the pandemic.
Why are some concerned that one prominent Chinese health official, who tried to warn others in the global medical community about the coronavirus, may have “vanished”? Also, what should be made of the recent U.S. intelligence reports that appear to indicate China is concealing information on the coronavirus? Along these same lines, commentator and mathematician Eric Weinstein recently appeared on the Joe Rogan podcast, and addressed the “deadly nonsense” that is the ever-changing attitude about the use of medical masks, and other bad or conflicting information in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
However, perhaps most concerning of all is what some call China’s “stranglehold” on the World Health Organization, which led to controversy recently after an interview with a leading WHO official about the organization’s current response to the coronavirus turned “awkward”. We examine all of these stories on this week’s Middle Theory Podcast.
