U.S. President Donald Trump said that the World Health Organization (WHO) made bad decisions in connection with the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, and therefore he thought about stopping funding the organization.
The U.S. leader recalled that initially the WHO did not agree with his decision to close the border with China in order to curb the spread of the virus, The Hill writes.
“They were wrong about many things, it seems they took a very pro-Chinese position,” Trump said.
The WHO did not sound the alarm in time, Trump said. He said the organisation should have started a few months earlier.
Therefore, he said, “we will see what we are paying for (WHO. – Ed.). In this regard, he decided to “very decisively suspend” the funding of the organization.
Earlier, April 7, it was reported that more than 12 thousand people died in the U.S. during the entire period of coronavirus spread from this infection. At the same time, 383,256 people became ill and 20,191 patients recovered.
