China worries about Trump halting WHO funding

Minister of Foreign Affairs of the People's Republic of China Wang Yi said on Wednesday that the country is seriously concerned about United States President Donald Trump halting WHO funding.

Trump instructed earlier his administration to halt the country's funding of the World Health Organization (WHO). He said funds will be temporarily stopped while the situation is further investigated, citing failure to ensure timely and accurate sharing of information as the reason for the decision.

Meranwhile, the American Medical Association (AMA) called on Trump to reconsider a decision to halt funding to the WHO, claiming it represents "a dangerous step in the wrong direction that will not make defeating COVID-19 easier."
