Except, uh, the record shows they got warnings about it for months, but sat on their thumbs.

On January 10, the WHO told the U.S. and other governments about the possibility of COVID-19 spreading through human contact. And instead of acting on any of that, these guys treated the emerging health crisis like a punchline.
