...Criticism of the World Health Organization for allowing the Chinese Communist Party to influence its behavior during the Wuhan virus epidemic is intensifying, coupled with calls for Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus to resign.
...On Jan. 31, a netizen named Osuka Yip started a petition titled, "Call for the resignation of Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director-General," on Change.org, citing Adhanom's refusal on Jan. 23 to designate the Wuhan coronavirus a global health emergency.
...China muddied the waters of geopolitics and global health - and today we see the consequences.
..."Until now, the world's multilateral bodies have gone along with China's pressure that Taiwan be excluded. But it has come at a cost to all of us, starting in this case, to China. Now it's time that we tell China, there is a place for discussing geopolitics. The World Health Organization is not it," Rasmussen advised.
..."The actions of the Chinese Communist Party exacerbated the public health crisis plaguing the international community, and instead of prioritizing global health, Dr. Tedros and the WHO played favoritism to China," said Rubio.
