Trump suspende fondos para la OMS

April 15, 2020 - El presidente Donald Trump dijo que congela los pagos de EUA a la Organización Mundial de la Salud durante la pandemia de coronavirus, acusando a la organización de no hacer lo suficiente para detener la propagación de la enfermedad coronavirus (Covid-19) cuando surgió en China.

Trump, who had telegraphed his intentions last week, claimed the outbreak could have been contained at its source and that lives could have been saved had the UN health agency done a better job investigating the early reports coming out of China.

“The WHO failed in its basic duty and must be held accountable,” Trump said at a Tuesday briefing. He said the U.S. would be reviewing the WHO’s actions to stop the virus before making any decision on resuming aid.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres responded to Trump’s announcement by saying now is not the time to end support for the World Health Organisation, calling the WHO “absolutely critical” to the global effort to combat Covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.
