W.H.O chief blames Taiwan for online criticisms amid COVID-19 delayed response



TAIPEI - World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus accused Taiwanese netizens for the online criticisms against him. There is a petition calling for his resignation amid Coronovirus failed quick response. The petition already got 580,000 signatures.

According to ETtoday, a netizen going by Osuka Yip in January started a petition on Change.org that demanded that Adhanom be replaced as the leader of the WHO. Yip said that Adhanom's initial refusal to declare the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak a global health emergency has led to millions being infected by the disease.

According to Up Media, the U.S. government has informed Taiwan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) that Adhanom believes most of the online comments accusing him of incompetence are part of a politically motivated scheme carried out by Taiwanese cyber warriors.

On Tuesday (March 24), the Taiwanese government confirmed that it had warned the WHO about the human-to-human transmission of the virus last December but was ignored. During a heated Twitter exchange with Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokeswoman Hua Chunying (華春瑩), U.S. Department of State spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus also reaffirmed Taiwan's account on its warning being neglected by the WHO.
