The Chairperson of the African Union Commission (AUC) and the president of Rwanda have said they fully support the World Health Organisation and Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus in the fight against the deadly coronavirus, after US politicians called for his resignation over the way China’s response to the coronavirus crisis was managed.
AUC Chair Moussa Faki Mahamat tweeted Wednesday, “surprised to learn of a campaign by the US government against WHO’s global leadership.”
“The African Union fully supports WHO and Dr. Tedros. The focus should remain on collectively fighting COVID-19 as a united global community. The time for accountability will come,” he added.
Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame, equally backed the AUC Chiarman in a tweet – “Totally Agree, and asking this – Is it Dr.Tedros, WHO, China…under attack or all of them together?”
“Let’s focus on the fight against this pandemic, whoever should be held accountable will come later and done properly. Save us too much politics Africa does not need it. Who does?” He asked.
The director-general of the World Health Organization is facing calls to resign over criticisms of the way China’s response to the coronavirus crisis was managed, according to the Daily Mail Uk.
Dr. Tedros is facing growing calls to step down from US politicians for trusting the communist regime’s official reporting about the extent of the spread of the disease.
Republican Senator Martha McSally claimed that the Ethiopian, 55, ‘deceived the world’ and even praised China’s ‘transparency’ during its coronavirus response.
Dr. Tedros says Africa will not be testing ground for coronavirus vaccine
It’s worth mentioning that this week Dr. Tedros has been in the spotlight for saying Africa will not be a testing ground for the coronavirus vaccine.
The head of the WHO equally condemned as “racist” the comments by two French doctors who suggested a vaccine for the coronavirus could be tested in Africa.
The doctors’ remarks during a TV debate sparked outrage, and they were accused of treating Africans like “human guinea pigs”.
Dr. Tedros called the doctor’s suggestions a hangover from the “colonial mentality”.
