WHO has shown concern about the increasing number of corona cases in poor countries as the tally reaches 5 million.

The situation in developed nations is worse since they have started easing the restrictions. The global health organization said that a total of 106,000 cases have been reported in the last 24 hours. This marks the only day since the outbreak began.

“We still have a long way to go in this pandemic,” WHO director-general told a news conference. “We are very concerned about rising cases in developed and developing nations.” Moreover, the time is near when the cases will cross 5 million.

The WHO is under US pressure since it believes WHO being China-centric. Also, the US believes that WHO is mishandling the data on part of China. Donald Trump, last week threatened to withdraw from WHO and withhold funding permanently.

WHO director-general accepted the letter from Donald Trump but refused to comment on it any further. WHO was convinced by the member states regarding the review of the pandemic. WHO says it will investigate and present a transparent review soon. The resolution was taken with consensus. However, the United States has shown a few reservations in this regard.

“I said it time and time again that WHO calls for accountability more than anyone. It has to be done and when it’s done it has to be a comprehensive one,” Director-general said of the review.

Another member of the WHO explained that the assessment is only carried once the pandemic is over or under control. He further added, “I for one would prefer, right now, to get on with doing the job of emergency response, of epidemic control, of developing and distributing vaccines, of improving our surveillance, of saving lives and distributing essential PPE to workers and finding medical oxygen for people in fragile areas, reducing the impact of this disease on refugees and migrants.”

Moreover, WHO is looking for any other source for providing funding to WHO. In response to Trump’s comments about vaccination, WHO members replied that countries must avoid using malaria vaccination to cure the corona virus. It will never be going to work for them.

A few days back, Trump disclosed that he is taking hydroxychloroquine to avoid corona. After clinical trials, neither hydroxychloroquine nor chloroquine are effective in the treatment of Covid-19. It has shown adverse effects in corona patients.
