“Finland will continue its service and will improve its funds for the organization this season. It’s in these instances that the WHO is needed to conquer the coronavirus.”
Hilde Vautmans, by the Netherlands, said Trump’s conclusion was”dangerous and irresponsible”.
The US is the world’s biggest contributor to WHO and cutting off payments will disproportionally influence emerging countries.
