WHO says it hopes to continue collaboration with US

Geneva: The World Health Organisation (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said that his organisation hopes to continue cooperation with the United States.

“The world has long benefited from the strong, collaborative engagement with the government and the people of the United States,” he said at a virtual press conference from Geneva on Monday, Xinhua news agency reported.

The WHO chief said that the US government and people’s contribution and generosity towards global health over many decades has been immense, and it has made a great difference in public health all around the world.

“It is WHO’s wish for this collaboration to continue,” he said.

Stating that the funding of the WHO would now be diverted to other global public health organizations, Trump announced a series of decisions against China including issuing a proclamation to deny entry to certain Chinese nationals and tightening of regulations against Chinese investments in America.

Donald Trump also announced that the US will end the special treatment of Hong Kong in response to the Chinese imposition of new controls.
