On the WHO’s Colossal Mistakes and More

Over at The Atlantic, it’s worth reading Zeynep Tufekci on the pandemic, the WHO’s huge mistakes and more.

Here’s one paragraph:

Trump’s ploy to defund the WHO is a transparent effort to distract from his administration’s failure to prepare for the COVID-19 pandemic. It would be disastrous too. Many nations, especially poor ones, currently depend on the WHO for medical help and supplies. But it is also true that in the run-up to this pandemic, the WHO failed the world in many ways. However, President Trump’s move is precisely the kind of political bullying that contributed to the WHO’s missteps.
