What follows below is Dr. Theresa Tam’s first memo about an “undiagnosed viral pneumonia in China” to provincial and territorial health officers, obtained by theBreaker.news via Freedom of Information.
Tam’s Jan. 2, 2020 email claimed “authorities in Wuhan/China [are] being transparent in reporting and WHO is engaged,” yet “there is no evidence of human to human transmission, and importantly no cases among healthcare worker contacts reported to date.”
The latter changed within days. Wuhan Central Hospital ophthalmologist Dr. Li Wenliang, who had circulated a reporter of a new case of SARS to colleagues on Dec. 30, 2019, was infected. He had apparently been treating a patient who had a stall at the Huanan Seafood Market, the presumed epicentre. The 33-year-old Li, hailed as a whistleblower, died Feb. 7.
As of Dec. 30, 2020, there had been 572,982 total cases reported in Canada, of which 15,472 people had died.
