Storyline


The World Health Organization (WHO) on Monday warned against the politicization of COVID-19 and urged countries to unite in the fight against the pandemic, which is still accelerating and producing record daily increases in infections.

During a press conference, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the politicization of COVID-19 is causing divisions among countries and impacting the effective containment of the pandemic worldwide.

Tedros called for world leaders to unite and put their differences aside to help curb the record daily increases of COVID-19 around the world.

"From the start we said please, please quarantine COVID politics. Please, we need national unity, unity at the country level, unity among political parties, unity across ideologies, unity across beliefs, unity across races, unity across any differences you can mention. Please, avoid any division, any differences could be exploited by the virus and that we have to fight this virus in unison," said Tedros.

In response to a series of scathing remarks by U.S. President Donald Trump around labeling the virus, the head of the WHO Health Emergency Program, Michael Ryan, said all people should refrain from using language with negative connotations, as this is basic diplomatic etiquette.

"From WHO's perspective, we obviously want to have international discourse that's based on mutual respect and in that sense we encourage all people at all levels and in all countries to use language that is appropriate, respectful and is not associated with any kind of connotations that are negative, and in that regard, we put that message out globally, many people around the world have used unfortunate language in this response," said Ryan.
