Donald Trump has threatened to permanently freeze US funding for the WHO and withdraw from the organisation

US President Donald Trump has threatened to permanently halt US funding to the World Health Organization (WHO) and quit an organisation he earlier derided as a “puppet of China” in a letter to the agency’s director general that he shared on Twitter.

The WHO chief has promised an independent review of the global pandemic response, after countries at a virtual meeting of the World Health Assembly called for a probe.

The US has set aside $11bn to ramp up coronavirus testing as the country reopens. 

Globally, there have been more than 4.8 million confirmed cases of COVID-19 and more than 318,500 people have died, according to Johns Hopkins University. Nearly 1.8 million people have recovered.
