COVID-19 – which has contaminated right around 2,000,000 people around the world – could have been contained at its source if the WHO had been exceptional at researching the initials reports that originated from China, Mr. Trump said.
In any case, he included that the US will keep on connecting with the association to pursue what he portrayed as important changes.
