Having since declaring that the United States of America will pullout from the World Health Organisation, a United Nations spokesman confirmed that they have received formal notification of its withdrawal from the organisation.
WHO which is part of United Nations body of organisations, will have to officially receive the notice and ensure all dues are settled before releasing any nation from the organisations. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in his capacity as depositary of the 1946 Constitution of the World Health Organization, said the letter received will omit US from WHO effective on July 6, 2021.
“The United States is a party to the World Health Organization Constitution since June 21, 1948. The United States’ participation in the World Health Organization was accepted by the World Health Assembly with certain conditions set out by the U.S. for its eventual withdrawal from the World Health Organization. The said conditions include giving a one-year notice and fully meeting the payment of assessed financial obligations,” said the UN spokesman.
Donald Trump accused, WHO for its poor handling of the Covid-19 pandemic, late in warning nations on the characteristics of the virus and protecting China. The President continues to believe China genetically developed the coronavirus and unleashed it into the world.
Top scientist around the world and White House medical advisors have disputed this theory and have now found evidence that the virus was in the community long before the spread first took place in Wuhan.
