Good on Australia for being one of first countries to call for inquiry into how virus started.

So much for the wimps who said how could we do it and risk anger from China, when no one else has.

now there are 62 countries that agree about an inquiry, including India and Indonesia.

Leadership, on behalf of humanity and our liberal legacy, is about having guts.

Go Sco MO.

Trade Minister stating today there is no trade war.

He must know that China will only purchase what it needs, and will use any other opportunity to screw countries that stand up to it.

But poor China, it now has 130 countries wanting a inquiry into virus.

It probably thinks it will one day be loved, but it wont.

I think that China retaliating against Australia's call for an investigation into the origin of the Wuhan virus by harming the Australian economy shows that China is guilty of starting the pandemic. Why else would China be so angry if it did not have anything to conceal?

And keep in mind that when Australia closed its borders against the pandemic it also hurt China-Australia trade by cutting off one of China's most important exports to Australia: Chinese migrants. Or "our colonists" as they are called in Beijing.

Finally a workable proposal for a WHO inquiry into the coronavirus.

The motion tabled by Australia and the European Union at the WHA and now backed by more than 120 other nations demands an independent inquiry into the Chinese origin of COVID-19 "at the earliest appropriate moment". China is in agreement, wanting the inquiry delayed until after the pandemic has peaked.

The original Australian proposal was not strongly supported, as it was viewed by many as a American backed mission to conduct a biased witch hunt into China. Chiefly as a means to deflect from the Trump administrations woeful handling of the pandemic in America, and to boost Trumps failing domestic standing.

Addressing the WHA by videolink, Xi Jinping said; "China supports the idea of a comprehensive review of the global response to COVID-19 after it is brought under control, to sum up experiences and deficiencies," Mr Xi went on to pledged $US2 billion ($3.1 billion) to WHO's coronavirus response, and promised any Chinese-developed vaccine would be made available as "a global public good".

Donald Trump is still of two minds, demanding the WHO bend to his way of thinking or else. According to Trump If WHO does not change to his satisfaction within 30 days, the temporary freeze on US funding to the organisation would become permanent.
