Geneva. US President Donald Trump has attacked the World Health Organization head-on. He accused her of failing to fight the corona virus. WHO is now responding to the words.
The World Health Organization (WHO) is against criticism from US President Donald Trump and his threat to cut her funds. "We are still in the acute phase of the pandemic, so now is not the time to cut funding," said WHO Regional Director for Europe Hans Kluge in Geneva on Wednesday. Trump had accused the WHO of failure and tweeted that she had "really screwed up" in dealing with the coronavirus pandemic. He also threatened to suspend his country's contributions. The U.S. paid more than $ 400 million in 2019, more than any other country. China contributed $ 44 million.

Aylward said it was too early to speak of optimism in Spain. But the outbreak there is definitely slowing down. The number of deceased corona patients increased by 757 to 14,555 within 24 hours. According to the Ministry of Health, 6,180 new infections were registered. The virus was thus detected in a total of 146,690 people.

Despite the rapid spread of the virus, the Democratic presidential primaries and local elections were held in Wisconsin. Thousands of people stood in line for hours, almost two meters apart, to cast their votes. Some voters who voted by postal ballot said they had never received the requested documents. So they were faced with the decision to risk their health in a queue or to waive their right to vote. Due to the postal voting deadlines, results will only be available on Monday.
