Director General of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus

The Director-General of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, has said the “greatest threat we face now is not the virus itself, it’s the lack of global solidarity and global leadership”.

“We cannot defeat this pandemic with a divided world,” he said during a video conference.

While Tedros did not mention President Trump specifically, the US leader said last month that his country – which is the WHO’s biggest funder – would terminate its relationship with the organisation.

“China has total control over the World Health Organization,” he claimed.
