United Nations rejects US president’s critique saying WHO is ‘showing the strength’ of the international health system.

US President Donald Trump threatened to freeze American funding to the World Health Organization (WHO), saying it “missed the call” on the coronavirus pandemic, which has so far killed more than 82,000 people around the world.

Trump said on Tuesday the WHO “called it wrong” on the virus and the UN organisation was “very China-centric” in its approach, suggesting the agency had gone along with Beijing’s efforts months ago to minimise the severity of the outbreak.

“The WHO really blew it,” Trump said in a Twitter post.
