US President Donald Trump’s decision to halt funding to the World Health Organization has not gone down well with Microsoft Founder Bill Gates. He expressed his anguish on it in his tweet .

“Halting funding for the World Health Organization during a world health crisis is as dangerous as it sounds,” Gates said in a tweet on his official account.

 

Their work is slowing the spread of COVID-19 and if that work is stopped no other organization can replace them, he said, adding the world needs the WHO now more than ever.

Trump announced recently that he is halting funding to the WHO while a review is conducted into its handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
