By BBN Staff: Amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the United States Government, has confirmed that it will withdraw from the World Health Organization (WHO), CNN reports.
CNN said that the news first came from Senator. Robert Menendez, the head Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee who took to the social media platform Twitter to say that Congress received the notification of President Donald Trump officially withdrawing the US from the WHO.
The withdrawal will take full effect on July 6, 2021. The decision to leave the WHO is been widely criticised, with many saying that the move is not in the interest of US citizens.
“To call Trump’s response to COVID chaotic & incoherent doesn’t do it justice. This won’t protect American lives or interests—it leaves Americans sick & America alone,” Menendez tweeted.
President Trump had announced his plans to leave the WHO earlier this year, noting several concerns about the influence that he believes China has in the organization. Notably, Trump has also been criticized for his approach to dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, which has now infected over 2.6 million Americans and killed over 136,000.
