It is “not the time to reduce the resources for the operations of the World Health Organization or any other humanitarian organization in the fight against the virus,” United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres said Tuesday (April 14).

“It is my belief that the World Health Organization must be supported, as it is absolutely critical to the worlds efforts to win the war against COVID-19,” he said, after US President Donald Trump announced earlier that his country would cut off funding to the UN health body for mishandling the coronavirus pandemic.
