China to Donate $30 Million to WHO to Fight Coronavirus

The Chinese government announced it would donate an additional US$30 million (€27 million) to the World Health Organization (WHO) to support its fight against coronavirus. The announcement was made by Foreign Ministry Deputy Director and spokesperson Geng Shuang from Beijing on Thursday.

“China has decided to donate an additional $30 million in cash to the WHO for preventing and controlling COVID-19 as well as supporting public health systems in the developing countries. China has already donated $20 million to the WHO,” announced Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang.

During the press conference, Shuang applauded the work of the WHO and took a swipe at the USA who recently announced they would cut funding to the WHO.

“In this key moment, the WHO is maintaining the ideas and principles of multilateralism​ as well as the status and the authority of the United Nations,” Shuang said.

“Some politicians in the US have been spreading disinformation campaign to defame China’s virus prevention and control system. The purpose of that is to avoid its own responsibility for lack of prevention and control,” he went on to say.

Worldwide the coronavirus epidemic exceeded 2.7 million confirmed cases, with over 190,000 people having died with the disease.
