The United States has announced the severance of ties with the World Health Organization


US President Donald Trump has called the World Health Organization (WHO) a puppet of China and announced the severance of ties with it.



Speaking to the media at the White House yesterday, Donald Trump said that the WHO has failed to deal with the spread of the corona virus from the very beginning.

The US president accused China of taking complete control of the World Health Organization (WHO) and of keeping the facts about Corona secret from the world and preventing the WHO from revealing the facts, which failed to stop Corona from the outset. ۔
On the occasion, Donald Trump said that the money provided by the United States to the World Health Organization will now be given to other organizations and institutions to help fight the epidemic.

Last month, the US president ordered the World Health Organization (WHO) to suspend funding if it did not deal well with Corona.
The United States is the largest donor to the World Health Organization. The United States provided 400 million  to the WHO last year, while China provided  million to the World Health Organization in 2018-19.
In this regard, the head of the American Medical Association, Peters Harris, says that severing relations with the World Health Organization will not achieve anything and it will be very difficult to find a way out of the current crisis.

The United States became a member of the World Health Organization in 1948 under a joint congressional resolution, and analysts say Trump will need congressional approval to withdraw from the World Health Organization. Presidents have been unilaterally withdrawing from international treaties and institutions, and Congress has done nothing about it.
