Italian prosecutors have accused a top United Nations Health Agency (WHO) of lying to them about a spiked WHO report into Italy’s coronavirus response, revealing private communications Friday that are likely to embarrass the U.N. health agency.
Prosecutors in Bergamo placed Dr. Ranieri Guerra, at the time WHO’s assistant director general, under investigation for allegedly making false declarations to them when he voluntarily agreed to be questioned in November. Guerra was the WHO’s liaison with the Italian government after Italy became the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak in Europe last year.
The report censored by the WHO pointed the finger at Italy’s lack of capacity to combat the spread of the virus. Doctors and nurses were infected because of a lack of protective devices. Few Covid tests were available.
The report also expresses a negative opinion on the reaction time of the Italian health authorities: “It took some time before a formal guide was available.” That’s to say the Italian Ministry of Health and regions didn’t receive them. The report bore the signature of Hans Kluge, head of the European division of the WHO.
