sounds like there's a lobby happening

Jie Wang says:

Can you tell the truth where comes the virus?

Gary Wei says:

It makes me felt awful to read the YouTube comments in below. If you people are scared of this Virus then why don't help those who are affected instead of criticising WHO. China and the Asian countries are suffering and you people sit here and talking negative things about those who is trying to help shamed on you

Dick says:

spit it out already, this is not a fame show. fake doctors

Harry Consu says:

So we get a ridiculous "fishing net" analogy to explain that those testing positive will be categorized as NOT POSITIVE IF non symptomatic and then they have the nerve to say "This casts a wider net" ……Orwell would be proud of this Doublespeak. Sickening to once again see the purported experts so obviously misleading the world and no journalist with half a brain to ask the real questions

Tamas Vamos says:

Why do I feel some people sold their soul?
Why some people has to by hyper-PC? Spanish flu – Wuhan flu…

Oh Amy says:

I couldn’t concentrate on what anyone was saying due to the shutter clicking of the camera and the coughing. And Dr. T got on his soap box again lol.

Timothy Carter says:

@26:00 Dr. Marie-Paule Kieny pulls a tissue from her sleeve, wipes a boogie, looks at it, then tucks it back into her sleeve. This is the World Health Organization…

Elisa Chavez says:

They are clueless and just flapping their gums. There are Videos of people being locked in their homes, people jumping off balconies, and dead children being wrap in blankets. You have no answers and neither do China. This is a pandemic tell the world the truth. God hate liars.

Uncle Meat says:

patriot1979 says:

Everyone commenting and spewing garbage yet they know nothing about this disease. Domesday hopefuls wishing and waiting for the day they can use their prepper kits they bought at wal-mart
