Internal e-mail revealed COVID-19 infection

An internal e-mail obtained by the Associated Press has revealed a Coronavirus infection at the WHO campus, while the World Health Agency maintains that there is no spread of the virus in its Geneva office. It has been said in the mail that more than half of the workers who have been affected due to the infection are working from home. Of these, there are 32 employees of the WHO who work in the headquarters building complex. This suggests that adequate steps have not been taken to prevent the spread of the virus in the World Health Body.

WHO director accused of bias

The Coronavirus originated in Wuhan, China last year. China has been accused of hiding information related to the infection in the early days. WHO and its director-general, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, were also accused of bias over the spread of the virus. 62 countries including India were drafted together to demand a fair probe into the role of WHO. It was a joint operation of Australia and the European Union.
