(Natural News) Former vice president Mike Pence has submitted his final comprehensive report as the head of the Trump administration’s task force on the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) to newly-inaugurated President Joe Biden. According to Pence, the new Democrat-controlled administration needs to hold China to account for allowing the virus to spread around the world.
Pence’s 146-page report, first obtained by RealClearPolitics, summarizes the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus outbreak in the U.S., as well as its successes.
The report lauded the administration and the task force for reinforcing the country’s supply chain to provide coronavirus tests for all who need it as well as developing “innovative therapeutics” that are saving the lives of people with COVID-19 every day.
The report also talks about the “effective vaccines” and how they are being distributed and administered thanks to the help of the task force. (Related: California stops injecting Moderna’s coronavirus vaccines after “disturbing number” of severe reactions.)
“A nationwide vaccination effort is underway, and every American has good reason to hope that our nation’s long period of trial and tribulation is finally coming to a close.”
Pence described the speedy development of the coronavirus vaccines as “nothing less than a medical miracle,” noting that only the United States was able to make these kinds of advances against the virus.
However, Pence and the task force couched their statements by stating that there was still much more to do, and that the coronavirus has not been defeated yet. The executive summary even states that the report “is no declaration of victory.”
“More than 400,000 of our fellow Americans have lost their lives to the coronavirus, and although hospitalizations and mortality rates are in nationwide decline, the virus continues to exact a toll on lives and livelihoods. But as we count that cost, it redoubles our determination to build on the progress we have made, and to restore this great nation and her people to health and to prosperity.”
Pence’s Coronavirus Task Force was made up of many federal officials, including former Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and Biden’s chief medical advisor Anthony Fauci, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield, as well as economic officials like White House adviser Larry Kudlow and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.

Pence report places blame for spread of the global pandemic on China
The Coronavirus Task Force’s report accuses China and the World Health Organization of putting out erroneous data regarding the virus, especially during late 2019 and early 2020, when people knew very little about the coronavirus. The accusations leveled against the communist regime are perhaps the strongest condemnations of China by Pence to date.
According to the report, China and the WHO repeatedly disseminated health information that was either incomplete or inaccurate in order to obstruct the rest of the world’s ability to come up with a response that was based on good scientific data.
Furthermore, Pence accuses China of “seeding” the coronavirus by allowing infected individuals to travel out of China.
“Not only did China deliberately inhibit research and disclosure of essential information about the virus,” read the report, “but it also seeded the infection globally by facilitating international travel out of China, even as it imposed internal travel restrictions and hoarded PPE and medical supplies that would soon be urgently needed worldwide.”
For weeks after the initial outbreak, Chinese authorities tried to downplay the crisis and suppress any information regarding the virus from leaking to the international press. According to alternative news outlet The Epoch Times, the government in Beijing understood the severity of the coronavirus publish reports that the outbreak was containable.
It was this initial coverup that allowed the virus to go out of control, spreading first outside of Wuhan and then outside of China.
Pence urges Biden to exercise “eternal vigilance” against Chinese threat
In one of his final appearances before he stepped down as vice president, Pence told incoming members of the Biden administration that the Democrats need to “stay the course” that the Trump administration has set with regards to China and its ruling communist party.
While speaking with sailors, Pence said that Biden needs to “stand up to Chinese aggression and trade abuses.”
“As a new American administration prepares to take office, we do well to remember as Americans that the price of freedom is eternal vigilance,” said Pence. “And a free and open Indo-Pacific is essential to our prosperity, our security and the vitality of freedom in the world.”
According to the “Strategic Framework for the Indo-Pacific,” the Trump administration attempted to accelerate the rise of India into a power that can match that of China. This strategy would have allowed the South Asian nation to block the communist regime from establishing an “illiberal sphere of influence,” thereby allowing the U.S. to maintain “strategic primacy” in the region.
U.S.-Chinese relations have been deteriorating sharply over the past few years as Trump has taken a hardline stance against Chinese aggression, exacerbated further by a trade war, Beijing’s attempts to curtail Hong Kong’s already fragile state as a semi-autonomous region and the country’s role in spreading the coronavirus. It remains to be seen how Biden will react to the rise of China.
