US intelligence agencies shared this information with NATO allies and Israel after they considered it of no interest in the White House.
US intelligence back in mid-November last year warned Israel of the threat posed by the new coronavirus emerging in China. On Friday, April 17, Interfax reports citing the Israeli media.
It is noted that US intelligence already knew about COVID-19, which covered the Chinese city of Wuhan. The information was transmitted to the White House, which, according to Israeli television, “did not find it of interest.”
However, despite this position of the Donald Trump administration, intelligence decided to warn its NATO allies and Israel.
As early as November, the Israel Defense Forces held their first discussion of the consequences that the entry of an unknown infectious disease into the region would have, as will affect Israel, in its neighbors.
This information was brought to the authorities of this country and to the Ministry of Health, but “nothing has been done,” the channel claims.
On Friday morning, Israel, according to the Ministry of Health, recorded 12 855 infected COVID-19. During the day, 264 new cases were noted. 148 patients died.
Earlier, American media, citing sources in the special services, said that the National Center for Medical Intelligence under the Intelligence Directorate of the United States Department of Defense (RUMO) warned the White House about the devastating consequences of coronavirus for both human health and business in November last year.
Trump later called fake media information that intelligence had informed him of a possible danger in connection with the outbreak in Wuhan.
