GENEVA – The head of the World Health Organization (WHO) warns “the worst is yet ahead of us” in regards to the coronavirus pandemic, the Associated Press reports.
The WHO has been thrust into the political fray in recent weeks after President Trump attempted to blame the organization for his lack of action in fighting COVID-19.
MeidasTouch released a video comparing the timelines of WHO and Trump’s response, which proved devastating to the president’s case.
The head of WHO’s warning comes as Trump and right-wing talking heads urge followers to ‘liberate America’ by taking to the streets to protest stay-at-home orders designed to prevent an even larger-scale outbreak.
Will the U.S. heed the WHO’s new warning, or is this the first scene in a cliche disaster movie in which leaders ignore the warnings of the scientific community until it’s too late?
If recent history is any indicator, this will surely not end well.
