Politicizing Coronavirus Could Lead to More Deaths
World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on Wednesday responded to President Trumpâs choice to withhold United States money.
âFor now, the focus should be on fighting this virus,â he said with a press conference. âThe focus of all political parties should be to save their people.â
âPlease donât politicize this virus,â he included. âIf you want to have many more body bags, then you do it. If you donât want many more body bags, then you refrain from politicizing it.â
The day before, Trump announced he was suspending You. S. funding for the WHO ELSE. He referred to as agency âvery China centric,â and even tweeted, âthe W.H.O. really blew it.â
The W. H. O. really blew it. For some reason, financed largely from the United States, still very China centric. We can be giving a good appearance. Fortunately I rejected their guidance on keeping our borders available to China early on. Why did they give us these a faulty recommendation?

He in that case delivered a long-winded lecture in the importance of national and even international political. He also included, âGlobal solidarity is very importantâ and argued the You. S. and China should âcome togetherâ to fight it.
There has been growing anger from the U. S. towards the agencyâs amplifying of Chinese assertions in relation to coronavirus, some of which ended up false.
For example, WHO ELSE infamously tweeted from January 14 a Chinese which turned out and about to be false along with a Chinese flag emoji:
Preliminary investigations conducted from the Chinese authorities have found no very clear evidence of human-to-human transmission involving the novel #coronavirus (2019-nCoV) recognized in #Wuhan, #Chinað³. pic.twitter.com/Fnl5P877VG

The agency also informed people against calling the malware âChineseâ or associating it using a region, despite the coronavirus originating from Wuhan, China.
China has tried to deflect to take responsiblity for hiding and destroying earlier proof the coronavirus found within Wuhan as soon as November. Some involving its officials have claimed of which U. S. soldiers brought the idea to Wuhan.
As often the WHO has come under self deprecation, it has tried to create ties with celebrities such since Lady Gaga. Tedros sent the woman birthday wishes and thanked the woman for my child support of relief initiatives.
