Now is not the time to cut WHO funds

“We are still in the acute phase of a pandemic, so now is not the time to cut back on funding,” Dr Hans Kluge, the WHO regional director for Europe, told a virtual briefing in response to a question about Trump’s remarks.

This comes after US President Donald Trump said that he may put on hold US’ contributions to WHO, having accused the organisation of being biased towards China.
The US is the biggest contributor to the WHO.
The US now has nearly 400,000 confirmed cases and 13,000 deaths, compared with close to 83,000 cases and 3,337 deaths in China.
