Geneva: America, America, China (China) as well as the World Health Organization (WHO) are targeting the Coronavirus epidemic. Recently, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo attacked WHO Chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, saying that he had made a deal with China. However, Tedros has termed the charge as baseless.
The WHO Director General termed Pompeo’s allegations as false and baseless and said that ‘we should avoid politicizing Corona’. He has appealed to all countries to unite in the fight against the virus, which has caused havoc all over the world.
At the virtual press conference, Tedros Adnom Ghebayeus said, ‘COVID-19 does not respect borders, ideologies or political parties. The politics on the epidemic has worsened the situation. So it is important that the politics of corona virus is quarantined now.
The US Secretary of State had said in a private meeting of MPs on Tuesday that the WHO has become a political body. His decisions were influenced by the deal between Tedros and China, and this deal led to Tedros getting the chair of the WHO chief. Significantly, from the beginning, US President Donald Trump has been raising additional questions about the role of WHO. He also called the WHO a puppet of China.
Trump had said that the World Health Organization did not show transparency about corona, due to which China was successful in its move to spread the virus throughout the world. For this reason, they decided to separate the US from the WHO.
