  • 350M$ is a large number to 1 person. 350$ to the 500M Meridians is less that a soda, for a whole year. But policunts love to splint large scaway numbers at people when all you need to do is simply work out the basics of maths to see that those big numbers are actually small as hell. Imagine if every living being gave 1$ (regional equivalent) to the WHO, what could be accomplished?

Even if China wanted COVID-19 to spread WHO could have limit is as it did with MERS & SARS. TAÏWAN lead the way and remains (still!!!! 11/2020) COVID-19 unscathed BECAUSE they knew better not to trust neither China nor the WHO.

  • Kudos to acknowledging the past successes of the WHO, but their past performance can't possibly forgive their mishandling of the biggest challenge they have likely faced. Their trustworthiness is critical to being able to diplomatically manage global health issues, but I think you overlooked the fact that diplomacy doesn't work with the CCP and XI made a fool out of Tedros. Saying it's OK that the WHO misread the Coronavirus because Trump did too is setting a pretty low bar for them don't you think? Trump's stupidity has cost hundreds of thousands of American lives, The WHO' naïveté dealing with China on this has cost millions of lives globally, not to mention the global financial massacre. I absolutely hate Trump, but if threatening the WHO is what it takes to get them to stop listening to the CCP propaganda it might actually be a good thing.

  • Just want to jump in on the 'literally' debate. We have to accept that this word is in the process of changing its meaning. This is how languages evolve. The frustrating thing is it also means that we're also losing that word's primary function due to the increasing prevalence of fuckheads in our society, who need to add emotional qualifiers to every insignificant moment of their lives! Sorry, I think I woke up angry today.

  • @JohnOliver.. First of all.. US should NOT quit the WHO... and Trump is a stupid, egotistical moron.. but your show has started ignoring facts just to criticise Trump.. a few facts which I think were relevant.. 1) Current head of WHO was elected with support of China over US 2) In January-20 despite growing worldwide alarm WHO simply parroted China's assurance that Covid is not airborne and a worldwide problem.. despite Wuhan already being under lockdown.. it did not fact check anything.. nor did it press China to allow an independent team to investigate.. not did ito advise a travel ban to/from China.. If we're anyways just going to take the word of dictatorships like China.. then WHO is not fulfilling its role.. This is in contrast with handling of earlier SARS/MERS (1 of them) outbreak a few years back.. under a different head.. who ADVISED TRAVEL BANS AGAINST CHINA and helped stop the their spread.. which the current head should have done or at least not given a carte blanche just on China's say so..

    • No the WHO did NOT say that. On 14 Jan the WHO (in just a single tweet) passed on what they had been misleadingly told by the Chinese authorities who, at the time, were aggressively suppressing accurate reporting of the situation in Wuhan. "Preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel #coronavirus (2019-nCoV) identified in #Wuhan, #China" A WHO team arrived in Wuhan on 20 Jan and within 48 hours promulgated that human transmission WAS happening AND convened their Emergency Committee.

But yeah... stick to the WHO but don't fund it more than other countries do. Figure out a good compromise, make sure the money is used well enough and for things most if not all countries would like it to be used, and don't let yourself be the doormat, but also don't be a Trump. Easier said than done, sure, but it's worth trying...

    • Germany and France are going to pay more to the WHO, Germany will then pay 500 Million Euro. So about as much as the US does. With this we will also pay for protection gear for other countries. Because if you have a world-wide problem everyone has a problem and the more countries cannot face this properly are also endangering us. No time for political tactics. Reforms can be made later.

  • The WHO is a corrupt organization. What this foreign terrorist fails to mention is that if Trump does stay in office and indeed pulls our funding for the WHO who will be their biggest donor. Guess who? Bill Gates then the UK. Yep one man will donate more than any single nation and when he donates it's not like he says here is the money do what you think you think is best. He implicitly tells the WHO what the money is for mainly vaccines. There is no coincidence the day after Bill Gates donated an additional 100 million dollars to the WHO they declared COVID19 or certificate of vaccination ID-19 a global pandemic. You make your own conclusions.
