New Delhi: As the voices for accountability from World Health Organisation (WHO) and the resignation of Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus over the spread of the coronavirus pandemic grows loud, globally; Japan comes out as the First Nation to call out WHO’s hypocrisy by calling the health body – China Health Organisation.
The deputy prime minister of Japan Aso Taro took WHO to the cleaners in scathing attack during his speech in the Parliament of Japan. He said, “People think the World Health Organisation should change its name. It should not be called WHO. It should be renamed CHO – China Health Organisation.”
He further stated that if the WHO had not insisted to the world that China had no pneumonia epidemic, then everybody would have taken precautions. The Japanese deputy prime minister also accused the former director-general of the global health body Margaret Chan of poor accountability.
Reportedly WHO sent Assistant Director-General Bruce Aylward on a “fact-finding” mission to China in February, where he resoundingly praised China’s efforts. However, later it was shockingly evealed that China hadn’t been counting mild or asymptomatic cases in its data.
