US President Donald Trump is ending the US relationship with the World Health Organization over allegations about the WHO’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic. The US will be withdrawing its funding from the WHO, Trump said in a press conference Friday, and instead “directing those funds to other worldwide and deserving urgent global public health needs.”

The president’s reasoning behind terminating support included allegations that the WHO worked with China to “mislead the world when the virus was first discovered.” He alleged that “China has total control over the World Health Organization.”

Trump further alleged that China covered up the coronavirus and “ignored their reporting obligations to the World Health Organization.”

Keep track of the coronavirus pandemic.

The US COVID-19 death toll hit 100,000 two days ago, out of more than 1.7 million confirmed cases. Worldwide more than 360,000 people have died, with 5.87 million cases reported.

The US had made detailed requests for reforms it wanted to see at the WHO, Trump said.

“Because they have refused to make the requested and greatly needed reforms, we will be today terminating our relationship with the World Health Organization.”

The WHO didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
