The director-general of the World Health Organization has revealed that he has received death threats and racist comments following the outbreak of the coronavirus.
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said he has endured months of racist comments and derogatory names like” black or negro”.
His comments follow after Donald Trump called him China-centric and American politicians plotting to oust him out of the office for his leniency on China in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.
Ghebreyesus fired back “I can tell you personal attacks that have been going on for more than 2-3 months. Abuses or racist comments, giving me names…even death threats. I don’t give a damn.”
US plots to get rid of him
On Wednesday the African Union said that it was “surprised” by moves by the United States to get rid of Ghebreyesus who is an African.
Ghebreyesusis who is from Ethiopia is facing calls to resign over criticisms that China’s response to the coronavirus was full of deception.
US politicians are spearheading the move to relinquish him of his duties for trusting the communist regime’s official reports on the Coronavirus outbreak.
China has been accused in recent weeks of deliberating altering figures, with some estimates suggesting their death toll figures to be over 40,000.
The US President called him ‘China-centric’ while other politicians believe that the WHO has lost its credibility.
The Republican Senator, Marth McSally in a press release said that,
“Dr. Tedros deceived the world. At one point, he even praised China’s ‘transparency during its coronavirus response efforts despite a mountain of evidence showing the regime concealed the severity of the outbreak. This deception cost lives.”
It has almost become a racial battle as many African leaders have frowned at the way The US government is antagonizing the WHO Director.
