  1. So Dr Tedros A.G. the prior Health Minister for Ethiopia, that covered up cholera outbreak’s in his country, has proven himself to be utterly lacking in integrity regards medical matters, so that makes him a perfect candidate for the head of the World Health Organisation…… that’s says it all….. ffs….

  2. World organisations are worthless. Europe and US and few other countries like Australia and japan should make there own organisation. This stupid educated puppet from some 3rd world country should just shut up.

  3. This guy should shot down by machine gun fire. He lied about the pandemic since day 1 covering for China and acting as their personal sycophant. If his lies were just effusive praise, it'd be one thing. But his lies have now led to the pandemic becoming much worse. The U.S. needs to stop funding this corrupt organization and this bum Tedros needs to drop dead.

  4. "Meanwhile, I'll be staying in my beautiful house in downtown Shen Jen bought and paid for by the Chinese government "

  5. I hate the Director-General of the World Health Organization,
    Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has reached a private agreement with China to provide people around the world with the wrong information. This epidemic is so serious now.

  6. Oh now you want urgency? Remember when this WHO clown was downplaying this in January. These people are useless bureaucrats.

  7. Apparently the Swiss has invested heavily in the virus. No serious measures in Switzerland to counter the virus, indeed they are letting the virus expand on purpose

  8. Im very disappointed in the WHO. They call themselves professional's and they treated this virus like it was the common cold for something a collage graduate student saw problematic back in January.
    Shocking and revealing to all those educated enough to have followed this from its beginning. Where and What was the World Health Organization interest 2 months ago????? Not on the job they was hired to do.
