Leaked recordings of internal World Health Organization meetings reveal the extent of the group's concerns about China's lack of transparency in the early days of COVID — and worries that the W.H.O. would be accused of failing to warn the world.
Obtained by the Associated Press and shared with FRONTLINE and the BBC, these recordings feature in the upcoming documentary "China's COVID Secrets," premiering 2/2 on PBS.
