Brazil threatens to leave WHO as Coronavirus tolls soars. Accusing WHO of ‘ideological bias’, Bolsonaro says he may follow the US president’s footsteps and leave the UN health body.
The statement came after the United Nations agency warned governments about the risk of lifting lockdowns before slowing the spread of the new coronavirus.
“I’m telling you right now, the United States left the WHO, and we’re studying that, in the future,” Bolsonaro told journalists outside the presidential palace on Friday. “Either the WHO works without ideological bias, or we leave, too.”
