US ends relationship with WHO

US ends relationship with WHO

Accusing the World Health Organisation of being "totally controlled" by China, where the first case of the novel coronavirus emerged, US President Donald Trump late Friday announced the country will permanently "terminate" its relationship with the organisation and will redirect funds from the WHO to other organisations. "China has total control over the WHO despite only paying $40 million a year compared to what the US has been paying which is approx $450 million a year. But the WHO has failed to make requested and needed reforms and so we will be terminating our relationship with the WHO," he said.
