WHO Says Nothing Was Ever Hidden From The USA With Regards To Coronavirus

The World Health Organization's most recent report indicates that malaria causes illness in about 230 million people, and kills approximately 430 000 people each year.

The cooperation pledge, made at a virtual meeting, was created to show that wealthy countries will not keep the results of research from developing countries.

Ghebreyesus called the illness "Public Enemy Number One" and said: "We have been warning from day one: this is a devil that everybody should fight". - Congressional Republicans on April 16, 2020 urged President Donald Trump to condition United States funding for the World Health Organization on the resignation of its chief over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

"Today, WHO is proud to be uniting with many partners to launch the Access to COVID-19 Tools Accelerator, or the ACT Accelerator", said the WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

He said past experience had shown that when tools were available, they were not equally accessible to all, and "we can not allow that to happen". "We can not allow this to happen".

The head of the Gavi Vaccine Alliance also said confidence in an eventual COVID-19 vaccine would be greatly boosted if political leaders were seen getting immunised, saying he was "quite disturbed" by highly-politicised campaigns against vaccination.

An experimental vaccine developed by Hong Kong-listed CanSino Biologics Inc. and the Beijing Institute of Biotechnology, which is in phase 2 had made more progress than any other vaccine.

Asked to confirm whether the United States was going to be participating at the meeting, a World Health Organization source said: "No, but nearly everyone else is".

The WHO said it would commit to "an unprecedented level of partnership" to create "a strong, unified voice" to maximise the impact of tackling the coronavirus pandemic on a global scale.

While health experts express fears that the coronavirus pandemic could erode the global fight against many diseases, sub-Saharan Africa is by far the worst affected by malaria.

More than 90% of all malaria cases occur in Africa, and of these, pregnant women and children under the age of five are the most vulnerable.

The heavily multilateral tone of the pledges contrasts with many countries' immediate reaction to the outbreak, when countries banned the export of their medical equipment, closed borders and even tried to steal equipment from one another.
