On Sunday, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the embattled director of the World Health Organization, thanked Canada for its continued support.
Dr. Tedros tweeted: "Thank you @GovCanHealth for your comprehensive words of support for @WHO & the importance of genuine global coordination to end the #COVID19 pandemic. Glad to hear Canada is implementing WHO’s public health guidance. Together!"
US President Trump recently put a halt to funding the WHO, citing its numerous failures during the pandemic as well as its close relationship with China.
A statement on Prime Minister Trudeau's website says, "We fully support and commit to further strengthen the WHO’s mandate in coordinating the international fight against the pandemic, including the protection of front-line health workers, delivery of medical supplies, especially diagnostic tools, treatments, medicines, and vaccines. We acknowledge the necessity of urgent short-term actions to step up the global efforts to fight the COVID-19 crisis."
Since January, the WHO has failed in numerous ways in its handling of the coronavirus crisis. It failed to acknowledge early evidence of person-to-person spread from Taiwan for apparent political reasons; it failed to provide proper guidance regarding the wearing of face masks and discouraged America's life-saving travel ban.
These mistakes have led many to believe that the organization capitulates to the communist Chinese regime.
