From the Key Takeaways: "[1] In a pandemic, a global health organization that is overly deferential to one nation and incapable of being an honest broker costs the very lives it exists to save. [2] While China deserves primary blame for the devastation of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019], the WHO [World Health Organization] also played a key role by failing to alert the world to Beijing's lack of transparency. [3] The WHO's failures cannot be allowed to recur. Without change, it will fail again. It must implement reforms if it wants to restore confidence and earn U.S. support."
