The US has banned the World Health Organization (WHO) funding. President Donald Trump announced this on Tuesday. Trump said the WHO disguised the severity of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) spread in China. Had the organization worked on a basic level, the epidemic would not have spread throughout the world, and the death toll would have been much lower.
Donald Trump said at the press conference that he is ordering his administration to stop funding. The WHO did not maintain transparency about the epidemic. The United States, which is the largest fund for this UN institution, will now consider what to do with that money. Trump said that the US funds WHO $ 400-500 million (about 3 thousand crores rupees) every year, while China contributes 40 million dollars (about 300 crores rupees). Recently WHO Director-General Tedros Gabresus said that giving political color to the case of COVID-19 would only increase the death toll.
