WHO Director General Congratulates Joe Biden as United States Plans to Return to WHO After Trump’s Threat to Disengage

Tedros Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) has sent good wishes to Joe Biden.

The Democratic candidate is expected to emerge as the 46th President of the United Sates.

“Congratulations to President-elect JoeBiden & Vice President-Elect KamalaHarris! My WHO colleagues and I look forward to working with you and your teams” He said.

Trump stopped funding for the WHO at the peak of the pandemic.

The President formally notified the United Nations (UN) and the U.S. Congress that America will exit the agency in July 2021.

In his reaction, Biden promised to reverse the decision on his first day in office if elected.

The president-elect stressed that citizens are safer when the U.S. is engaged in strengthening global health.

“On my first day as president, I will rejoin the WHO and restore our leadership on the world stage”, the former Senator said.
