The German intelligence has concluded that Chinese Leader Xi Jinping has to ask the World Health Organization (WHO) to delay the release of critical information regarding its coronavirus outbreak.

President Xi met with W.H.O Director-General Tedros Adhanom on January 21 to secretly request that he withhold some critical information about human to human transition and delay the declaration of a global pandemic, according to German magazine Der Spiegel. The news comes amid rising sentiment that China should be held financially responsible and pay for the pandemic.

The verdict is harsh: At least four, if not six, weeks have been lost in Beijing's information policy in the fight against the coronavirus, Der Spiegel reported.

The developments from German intelligence caught the attention of some U.S. politicians investigating China's handling of the corona-virus as well.

We are still working to confirm this reporting. But if it turns out to be valid, it is further proof Director-General Tedros conspired with the Chinese Communist Party in their cover-up and he is not fit to be the leader of the WHO, Texas Republican and chairman of the House China Task Force Michael McCaul told the Daily Caller.

The U.S. intelligence similarly concluded in mid-March that China had been falsifying its data on both coronavirus cases and deaths in its outbreaks in Wuhan and elsewhere.

The Chinese government's official puts the Wuhan death toll at roughly 3,500, but evidence shows that the true number is around 40,000, it is also revealed that the Chinese wasn't counting some deaths such as if you already have another ailment and died from the coronavirus. 

President Donald Trump's admin has been very critical of China's handling of the pandemic, saying it should face punishments if China is found to have knowingly contributed to the spread of COVID-19. DailyCaller is also investigating and still gathering resources.
