The chairperson of the African Union Commission, Moussa Faki, has expressed dissatisfaction over President Donald Trump’s decision to discontinue sponsoring the World Health Organisation.

The African leader in a tweet described the move as regrettable.  Indicating that the countries depend on WHO now than they ever did in the past.

”The USgovt decision to suspend funding to @WHO is deeply regrettable. Today more than ever,the world depends on WHO’s leadership to steer the global #Covid_19 pandemic response,” he wrote.

He added that ”Our collective responsibility to ensure WHO can fully carry out its mandate, has never been more urgent.”

 

US President Donald Trump ha suspended funding to the World Health Organisation by the US.

According to him, the world health body says its failed as its basic duty of responding to the Coronavirus pandemic.

He has accused the UN body of mismanaging and covering up the spread of the virus after it emerged in China and said it must be held accountable after accusing it of being biased towards China.

“I am directing my administration to halt funding while a review is conducted to assess the World Health Organization’s role in severely mismanaging and covering up the spread of the coronavirus,” President Trump told reporters at a conference at the White House.

“Had the WHO done its job to get medical experts into China to objectively assess the situation on the ground and to call out China’s lack of transparency, the outbreak could have been contained at its source with very little death,” he opined.
