Andrew Scheer joins Trump in criticizing World Health Organization - 2020-04-16
The leader of the Conservative Party, Andrew Scheer has expressed "serious concerns" about the World Health Organization (WHO). This comes a day after, US President Trump cut funding to the international public health organization.
Scheer mirrored Trump's talking points about the WHO, accusing the institution of acting as an accomplice to the Chinese government and questioning the accuracy of the organization's guidance.
The Conservative leader says he has doubts about the track record of the WHO, citing one of the organizations' earliest assessments that the virus was not easily transmitted between people. However, as reported by the New York Times, the WHO warned countries about the COVID-19 virus early on and acted more forcefully and faster than most national governments.
