United States President Donald Trump says the country is terminating its relationship with the World Health Organisation (WHO).
As its feud with the global body over the coronavirus pandemic worsened, Trump alleged on Friday that China is controlling the WHO despite having far lesser monetary contribution to the organisation.
“China has total control over the World Health Organisation despite only paying $40 million per year compared to what the United States has been paying, which is approximately $450 million a year,” he was quoted as saying at a press conference.
“The world needs answers from China on the virus. We must have transparency. Why is it that China shut off infected people from Wuhan to all other parts of China?
“It didn’t go to Beijing, it went nowhere else, but they allowed them to freely travel throughout the world, including Europe and the United States.”
