  • The director-general of the World Health Organization, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, warned world leaders to not politicize the response to Covid-19, saying doing so will lead to more deaths.

    Mr Tedros made the comments at a WHO press briefing on Wednesday in response to a question about recent comments made by U.S. President Donald Trump.

    On Tuesday, Mr Trump said he would put a “very powerful hold” on money sent to the WHO, adding that they “missed the call” on the pandemic.
