On the 15th local time, Bill Gates tweeted, “It is dangerous to stop funding the World Health Organization during the World Health Crisis. The work of the World Health Organization is slowing the spread of the epidemic. If this work stops, No other organization can replace them. The world needs the World Health Organization more than ever. “
According to previous reports, Trump announced on the 14th that the United States suspends funding for the World Health Organization on the grounds that he believes that the WHO has performed poorly in handling the new crown epidemic.
Trump accused that WHO did not release the epidemic information in time, nor did it introduce effective anti-epidemic measures. He said: “After such a long time, it is time for them to be held accountable.”
