(Kajal Singh intern journalist): New Delhi; In the past, the US had halted its aid funding to the WHO, with US President Trump accusing the WHO of failing to recognize the coronavirus and criticizing it for supporting China. Trump was a constant attacker on the WHO and now decided to withdraw from this organization.
TRUMP – WHO UNDER CHINA GIVING $ 40 MILLION 1,735,971 cases in US so far, 102,323 dead in 12 countries.
America, the worst affected by the Corona epidemic, has announced its withdrawal from the World Health Organization. US President Donald Trump said that the WHO is completely under China’s control. The WHO failed to initiate the process of change and the US would end its relationship with the World Health Organization.
President Donald Trump said that China is in control of giving $ 40 million a year to the WHO, while the United States grants about $ 450 million to the WHO a year. The recommendation made by the WHO regarding reform was not implemented, so the US is breaking its relationship with the WHO.
WHO was on America’s target
In the past, the US had halted its aid funding to the WHO, with US President Trump accusing the WHO of failing to recognize the coronavirus and criticizing it for supporting China.
Also, President Trump wrote a letter to the WHO director, in which he had asked to make major changes in the organization within 30 days. Otherwise, the US will close its funds forever and may consider separating from the organization.
There has been constant accusation from the US that the world is suffering because of WHO’s gross negligence in favor of Coronavirus and fully favored China.
More than 58 lakh people suffer till now
The corona epidemic is causing havoc all over the world and it has spread to 188 countries. So far 5,878,701 have been infected by this epidemic in which 362,769 people have died. This has been the most stricken America where 102,323 people have died out of 1,735,971 cases. Despite the death of more than one lakh people, the process of death in America is not taking the name of stopping.
Not only America but other countries are worried about this. The epidemic has crossed the 1 lakh mark in 12 countries including India. At the same time, the outbreak continues to increase.
WHO created a new foundation
Earlier, the Corona epidemic has caused havoc all over the world. The World Health Organization, facing allegations of preventing the outbreak of the epidemic and failing to handle the situation, announced a new foundation. Funding will be collected under this foundation to deal with any epidemic, in which help will be taken not only from the big countries but also from the common people.
Announcing this, the Director of the World Health Organization (WHO) said that it will be an independent organization. In which the funding will be raised apart from the existing methods.
In the present circumstances, each member country gives its own aid money to the WHO, on the basis of that, the WHO helps in any way about the difficulties faced in the world.
WHO is facing an economic crisis
Recently, a statement was issued by WHO that its current budget is $ 2.3 billion, which is very low according to the global organization. Also, US funding has stalled, so we need more funding.
Not only the US but after its pressure, many other countries have also appealed for a change in the WHO. It is alleged that the WHO knew about the coronavirus in December but did not warn the world.
