WHO chief expresses ‘regret’ over US decision to freeze funding

A day after United States President Donald Trump announced that he was freezing funding for the World Health Organisation (WHO) over its handling of the coronavirus pandemic, the organisation’s chief voiced ‘regret’ over the decision and said the body was purely focused on saving lives and halting spread of the virus, AFP reported.

Claiming that it would review its handling of the coronavirus pandemic “in due course”, WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a virtual press conference in Geneva: “No doubt, areas for improvement will be identified and there will be lessons for all of us to learn.”
