A courageous article by @ParkSuAm1996 in the HK South China Morning Post.
Well done Eduardo and the SCMP, the questions of transparency and willingness to oppenly learn from mistakes are essential.
“An employee at CNAS who declined to be identified said by phone that the Wuhan Institute of Virology was classified as a “secret institute”, so its audits were only available to specially authorised employees.”
“We signed a privacy agreement with the Wuhan institute so documents relating to laboratory audits cannot usually be shared with third parties,” he said, giving a number for an authorised official in another department. Four phone calls to that number over several days went unanswered. Three phone calls to the CNAS public relations office were also not answered.”
