WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has defended its handling of the COVID-19 pandemic after U.S. President Donald Trump’s criticism: “Please, unity at national level, no using COVID-19 for political points. Second, honest solidarity at the global level and honest leadership from the U.S. and China.”

“The U.S. and China should come together to fight this virus. The G20 should come together to fight this virus. This virus is dangerous. We will have many more body bags in front of us if we don’t behave,” he added. #Coronavirus #COVID-19
