Officials at the World Health Organization are backpedaling on recent comments about asymptomatic carriers and news about the spread of COVID-19 on surfaces, asking reporters “who said what now?”
WHO was questioned Monday after saying that asymptomatic spread is “very rare,” contradicting what the organization and world governments had been concerned about for months. On Tuesday, though, WHO officials backtracked by confusing reporters.
“WHO said what now?” WHO officials stammered through a press conference. “What’s on a surface? WHO are we talking about?”
WHO was able to filibuster for most of the afternoon. When asked if WHO felt responsible for creating panic and confusion, officials replied “who is responsible?” before walking off.
