LONDON (Reuters) - Pulling funding from the World Health Organization
(WHO) is a dangerous and nonsensical move when the world is facing the
health crisis brought by the COVID-19 disease pandemic, Melinda Gates
said on Wednesday. 6park.com
Announcing an extra $150 million of funding from The Bill &
Melinda Gates Foundation to help speed the development of treatments,
vaccines and public health measures to tackle the new coronavirus
outbreak, Melinda Gates said the WHO was “exactly the organization that
can deal with this pandemic”.
“De-funding the WHO makes
absolutely no sense during a pandemic. We need a global coordinated
response,” Gates, who co-chairs the foundation with the billionaire
Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, said in a telephone interview.
“When you’re in a crisis like this, it’s all hands on deck.”
