Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, World Health Organization Chief, is set to be re-appointed via a secret ballot, standing for the role unopposed.
“The W.H.O.’s first African leader, Tedros, is a career bureaucrat with no medical background but is guaranteed to return to the position he has held since 2017,” reports Breitbart News.
“This is despite widespread criticism of his tenure as head of the W.H.O.,” according to Breitbart News. “In 2020 over a million people called for the resignation of Tedros via a petition, due to his failure to declare the ‘China virus outbreak as a global health emergency’, and also over the alleged undue influence China has over the Ethiopian.”
“Tedros initially refused to declare coronavirus a global health emergency and faced accusations of spouting Communist China’s government narratives, such as trying to cover up the Chinese origins of the pandemic, and at the start of the pandemic claiming that there was ‘no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission’,” reports Breitbart News.
“This pro-China approach resulted in Taro Aso the Japanese deputy prime minister and finance minister at the time rebuking the W.H.O. by saying in the Japanese Parliament that some have even started calling the World Health Organization the ‘Chinese Health Organization’,” Breitbart News reported.
Donald Trump referred to the W.H.O. under Tedros as a “puppet of China”.
UPDATE: A petition calling for the resignation of World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus is nearing one million signatures. https://t.co/INFaBju21O
