The World Health Organization says it regrets US President Donald Trump’s decision to cut funding for the UN body amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Tedros also said the WHO is reviewing the impact of the US funding freeze. He added that the organization is working with other partners to fill any financial gap it could face. The comments came after the US president froze his country’s financial support to the organization, accusing it of covering up China’s coronavirus figures. The move drew harsh international reactions. Iran called the US decision a crime against humanity. The Iranian Foreign Ministry said the cutting of the WHO fund is a sheer irresponsibility on the part of Washington. The European Union, the African Union, China, France and Germany all have criticized Trump for his abrupt move.
