US President Donald Trump has once again slammed the World Health Organization, describing it as “a puppet of China.” Trump is basing his criticisms on the management of the coronavirus crisis by the organization. “The United States pays them $450 million a year,” Trump told reporters at a White House event.
“While following WHO advice of 1-week isolation, maintaining social distance, and regularly washing hands, why not boost your immune system with the help of Indian Ayurveda to fight back against coronavirus,” says Subodh Gupta. The World Health Organization should consider Indian Ayurveda 5,000 years old natural healing science for a coronavirus cure instead of waiting and pushing for a cure by vaccines which is uncertain.
Burundi has expelled the World Health Organization’s top official in the country at a time when the country is battling the coronavirus pandemic as well as preparing to go to the polls. In a letter to the WHO’s headquarters in Africa, Burundi’s Foreign Ministry said that Walter Kazadi Mulombo and three of his colleagues were declared persona non grata, and had to leave by today.
The death toll from COVID-19 in Africa has soared to 2,556 today, with more than 75,000 infections in 54 countries across the continent. The data is thanks to the latest pandemic statistics on the continent by the Africa Center for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC).
The Covid-19 pandemic could kill over 180,000 people in Africa within the first year. Moreover, between 29 million and 44 million Africans could be infected within the first year, especially in the event that containment measures fail. This is according to the latest warning from the World Health Organization (WHO).

Chinese President Xi Jinping allegedly pressured the World Health Organization (WHO) to postpone the global alert for Covid-19, asking its President, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, to withhold information on human-to-human transmission and postpone a pandemic alert. The WHO, in a quick rejoinder, has said that the charges are “unfounded and untrue.”
On Thursday, the United States and China blocked a French-Tunisian draft resolution in the United Nations Security Council calling for “enhanced coordination” in the face of Coronavirus pandemic.

At present, the number of infected with coronavirus is surpassing 3 million and over 205,000 deaths around the globe. Even though many nations seem to have passed their peak of the pandemic. The concern now is the possible second wave of COVID-19. On April 26th, US President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron discussed the need to form the World Health Organization (WHO) and the convening of the conference of leaders of the “five” permanent members of the UN Security Council.
The World Health Organization (WHO) called on governments not to issue so-called “immunity passports,” or “safety certificates” for the new coronavirus. The idea, based on antibody tests, has been gaining ground as countries decide how to relax behavioral restrictions and lockdowns and return to normal life.
The death toll due to COVID-19, caused by the new coronavirus, has exceeded 200,000 worldwide.So far, the total number of infected people has reached nearly 2.9 million. This is according to statistics compiled by Johns Hopkins University. Deaths from the new virus were first reported by Chinese state media on January 11.
The United States has led the world nearly a century. There were certain setbacks and challenges over time. One would be the Caribbean Crisis in the last century. After the Caribbean Crisis, the world was divided into two spheres of influence between the United States and the Soviet Union. From 1944 the US dollar became the world’s reserve currency and the United States destroyed its main competitor Britain. Sole US power around the world has lasted only about 18 years.
The global coronavirus pandemic has infected 2,223,122 people all around the globe, causing 152,328 deaths as of April 18th. So far, the virus has killed 1,241 in Brazil alone. The U.S. is at present the hardest-hit country with up to 557,663 coronavirus cases and 22,116 total deaths, as reported by Johns Hopkins.

Trump says that China contributed much less than the United States.
A report from the World Health Organization (WHO) released on Monday shows that there is a shortfall of 5.9 million nurses worldwide.

The World Health Organization is reportedly planning to suggest that people wear masks in public places, even if they are not sick. Most European and American experts have not advised ordinary people to wear masks for several months. In addition to the WHO, U.S. President Donald Trump has also called for it.
The Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, says the number of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus cases worldwide is accelerating. According to the news sources, the virus has already entered 195 countries and territories. The causative agent of pneumonia COVID-19 was detected in 378,000 people.
Today saw the number of infections by the new coronavirus in Africa exceed by 1,000 in 40 countries across the continent, with records of 30 deaths, according to the latest statistics on the covid-19 pandemic. In total, 1,107 cases of infection have been recorded since the beginning of the pandemic. The very first case on the continent was reported on February 14, in Egypt.
US scientists from Columbia University used mathematical modeling based on data from reported cases of COVID-19 in China. They also collected the data pertaining to the people’s movement from 375 Chinese cities. Scientists analyzed the data proving that 86% of cases in China were undocumented prior to introduction of restrictions on the the entry into and exit from the Wuhan region, which contributed to the rapid global spread of the coronavirus.
Last month, South Korea published a report focused on 195 cases of reinfection of presumed recovered patients with COVID-19. In some cases the virus appeared within few days of the clear tests. This may mean that some of the patients’ immune systems for some reason did not develop a natural defense against the virus, as happens in people who have had compromised immune system, such as individuals who are on immunosuppressant therapy or were undergoing chemotherapy.
The World Health Organization (WHO) announced Wednesday that the new coronavirus would be characterized as a global pandemic. Prior to WHO’s announcement of this qualitative situation, the number of confirmed cases of infection worldwide surged 13 times compared to two weeks ago, and the epidemic situation in countries outside China continued to deteriorate.
The World Health Organization has raised its assessment of the risk of spreading the COVID-19 coronavirus to “very high.” This happened after a development where Denmark, Estonia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, and Nigeria are the latest among 49 countries that have detected cases of the virus within two weeks.
As fears of the continued global spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continue to drive financial markets to new lows, savvy investors should take note of the excellent opportunities that this massive global sell-off is creating.
The World Health Organization on Coronaviruses:
“Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV).
Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people. Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death. A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans.”
Two senior health officials from Hubei province, the epicenter of the coronavirus epidemic in China, were fired on Tuesday after being criticized for their management of efforts to contain the spread of the disease, which has so far left more than 1,000 dead. The employees, dismissed by decision of the Party Standing Committee in Hubei, were the director of the provincial Health Commission, Liu Zingzi, and the chief Communist Party leader on the commission, Zhang Jin.
The internal memo that was shared by the head of Cyberpol, Ricardo Zaretsky, paints a grim picture, The Image depicted with the data as of February 1, 2020 shows infected numbered over 154,023 people and the count of the dead at 24,589.
Hence, it is very clear China, in a true sense of Communism, does not provide true numbers. The same scenario occurred during the Soviet era and the Chernobyl disaster. So many innocent people were victims of the radiation exposure. The true tragedy was not reported and other areas got impacted. The numbers that are depicted on how many died and infected shows almost one of the most grim scenarios. Interestingly, it seems every 100 years mass deaths occur.
Last week, I have written an article pertaining to the Coronavirus possibly leaking from the Biological Warfare lab in Wuhan. The hypothesis arose based on the fact that it was highly odd to have a virus that can adapt to both cold-blooded and warm-blooded hosts. Hence, could it be that China was testing it in their biological warfare arsenal and it’s just gone wrong or it was created in the lab and some type of contamination occurred? It is not a new phenomenon for totalitarian nations to sacrifice their own populous for the so called “greater good.”
The World Health Organization (WHO) on Thursday, declared the coronavirus an international public health emergency following the outbreak of the disease, first reported in the city of Wuhan, China, in December 2019. “We don’t know what sort of damage this virus could do if it were spread in a country with a weaker health system,” said WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

“People think that Ebola does not exist,” says Pascal Vahwere, a doctor who works to combat the disease in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). “My team has been attacked for doing our job.” Dr. Vahwere told journalists what happened when he was surrounded by an enraged crowd in March while leading a small team of health workers administering vaccines in a remote village in the province of North Kivu.
A diet rich in bananas, chickpeas, and peanuts improves intestinal bacteria in malnourished children, helping them to grow, according to scientific research published today: “Effects of microbiota-directed foods in gnotobiotic animals and undernourished children.” An American study of children in Bangladesh concluded that these foods specifically have the potential to promote healthy microbes in the body, which in turn help to grow bones, brain, and body.
