    hey look at that, the WHO puts a doctor in charge instead of a graphic design artist like our health minister….

      Token Teddy covered up cholera outbreaks. He has been licking the commies butt the entire time

    • ya, and that doctor was too chicken-sh** to go into the epicenter of the outbreak. they went to china and didn’t even visit wuhan, what a joke.

    • He’s not a Medical Doctor. He’s a PhD

    • @prospecops i think there was a canadian doctor who went to china with w.h.o. for vacation, no? Bruce Aylward went to china with w.h.o. hoping to find the origin of the virus, but they never went to wuhan. what a joke. they were supposed to go but didn’t. they just visited beijing which was the least infected city at the time.

  3. He needs to be thrown in jail for taking his time

    • He is to blame for taking his time , I am truly disappointed by WHO. HE OUGHT TO STEP DOWN.

    • @Mahvin Ong he is to blame, but those countries who have been too cordial with china are also, in a way, to blame. EVERYBODY thought taiwan was going to be the 2nd hardest hit by the virus, but no, because they have been trying to distant themselves from china, so i think taiwan is the only country in asia that actually has a better chance to survive this pandemic.

    • They’re all in on it together. Destruction of the west.

  4. WHO was too busy ‘praising’ China for their response to declare this a pandemic earlier.

    Token TEDDY is 3 weeks late.
    The WHO is a joke, virus should be renamed WHO FLU since it has spread due to their incompetence…

    As a friendly reminder to everyone, let’s do our part in preventing the spread of WU/WHO flu using WUHAN protocol.
    W – ash your hands
    U – se mask
    H – ave your temperature checked
    A – void crowds
    N – o touching of face

    Maybe WHO should have focused more on the virus than on preventing “racism.”

  11. The Walking Dead movie is about to become real. Arm yourself, load your weapons.

  12. WHO so corrupted


  14. China has given the WHO permission to call this virus a pandemic.
