WHO Will No Longer Receive Funds From The US, Here’s Why.
US President Donald Trump has announced that he is terminating the country’s relationship with the World Health Organization (WHO).
The president has accused the WHO of failing to hold Beijing to account over the coronavirus pandemic and also withheld vital information regarding the dangers of the new diseases which has eventually cost over 100,000 American lives.
“China has total control over the World Health Organization,” the president said while announcing measures aimed at punishing Beijing.
He also accused China of violating its obligation of honesty and transparency to the world regarding the truth about Covid19.
He added that henceforth, Washington will redirect funds to other global health bodies.
The US is WHO’s largest single contributor, providing more than $400m (£324m; €360m) in 2019.
