The Opposition Party of Convergence for Social Democracy in Equatorial Guinea (CPDS) has criticized the World Health Organization (WHO) this Saturday for devoting itself to “playing” the dance of the contagious figures of the government of Equatorial Guinea, which it accuses. Falsify data. “
“It is not surprising that the government of Equatorial Guinea acts so cheekily and without transparency, it has already accustomed us to it. But that WHO is suitable for this game is already much more worrying,” said the CPDS in a statement.
In particular, the party points to the fact that, on May 24, WHO suspended publication of data on the coronavirus in the former Spanish colony “due to a dispute with the government.” On June 8, the government reported 2,049 confirmed cases. Just five days later, there were 1,664 confirmed cases and 32 deaths.
On July 2, 3,071 positive cases were reported, 51 deaths, but the latest data as of July 15 indicate 2,350 cases and 41 deaths, a figure collected by the WHO.
“This people deserves an explanation, they have the right to know the truth about the reality of infections in the country. This people no longer trust the statements of their government because they know that their government is falsifying the data,” said CPDS. .
