Coronavirus pandemic: WHO calls for US, China to unite to fight COVID-19

“The United States and China should come together and fight this dangerous enemy,” WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a virtual briefing in Geneva.

Tedros alluded to the so-called Spanish flu in 1918 as a reference for the coronavirus outbreak.

“The United States and China should come together and fight this dangerous enemy,” WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a virtual briefing in Geneva, following criticism from US President Donald Trump that the UN health body “blew it” and was “very China centric”.
