China replies harshly to the letter that Donald Trump sent to WHO to denounce the behavior of the Beijing organization in response to the coronavirus pandemic, claiming that that letter "muddies" China in an attempt to blame it for its ill-health crisis management. The answer came from Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian, who said the United States had miscalculated the move to try to unload their own responsibilities on China.

WHO has done "a very sad job" on coronavirus, because "I am a puppet from China". Thus the President of the United States, Donald Trump, had returned to attack the WHO, which is being held by the World Assembly. According to the US President, the World Health Organization would have helped the Chinese to hide the real extent of the pandemic in its early stages. For this he announced that he intends to cut his funds, bringing them from the current 450 to 40 million dollars.

In a letter to Twitter CEO Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Trump said that if the WHO "does not commit to substantial improvements in the next 30 days, I will make my temporary decision to suspend US funding to the World Health Organization final. and I will reconsider our membership in the WHO. "

Hours earlier, Chinese President Xi Jinping had assured that all information was disseminated in a timely manner from Beijing and promised 2 billion in two years to fight the epidemic. Last year, China donated 86 million to the agency. It was then the WHO secretary general, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who announced the independent evaluation of the WHO response: it will take place "at the appropriate time, as soon as possible". Not now, because for the agency to implement it "in full response" to the pandemic would damage the ability to react. Xi also said he was in favor of the evaluation, but "when the situation is under control".

Meanwhile, the United States yesterday recorded 21,551 new coronavirus cases and 785 deaths. This is what emerges from the statistics published by the American university Johns Hopkins. The total death toll in the country has exceeded 90,000 (now 90,369), while the confirmed infections are 1,508,957. So far 283,178 people have been healed.
