Venezuela expresses solidarity with W.H.O. over Trump’s attacks
Venezuela expressed its solidarity with Director-General of the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus over Trump’s “merciless attacks.”
“Mr. Donald Trump is trying to transfer his irresponsibility in managing the pandemic in the United States by blaming the W.H.O.,” said Vice President Delcy Rodríguez.
The Venezuelan high-ranking official said that the W.H.O., since the pandemic broke out, has issued early alerts and, based on those guidelines, Venezuela has managed to design measures to fight the COVID-19 breakout.
Likewise, Rodríguez thanked the W.H.O. and the UN for their technical-humanitarian assistance to the Venezuelan people amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Tuesday, U.S. President Donald Trump lambasted the W.H.O. and blamed it for being too soft on China and issuing bad advice during the coronavirus outbreak.
“The W.H.O. really blew it. “For some reason, funded largely by the United States, yet very China centric. We will be giving that a good look,” he twitted.
The United States is the country that has been affected most by COVID-19, registering 394,587 cases and 12,748 deaths.
