  • WHO leader refuses to be invested until 'several conditions' are met

The EU has sponsored a motion at Tuesday's session of the WHO's annual assembly to urge an "impartial, independent and comprehensive evaluation" of the global response to the pandemic.

The WHO was also getting to grips with US President Donald Trump's reform ultimatum, giving the organisation 30 days to overhaul its operations otherwise its biggest contributor would freeze its funding and consider pulling out altogether.

General Manager Tedros Adhanom said his organisation "calls for accountability more than anyone" but warned it was not the time to start an inquiry into his actions. He has pointed to the coronavirus pandemic as proof of the danger he believes Bolsonaro is to Brazil and said impeachment should be considered.

"In the last 24 hours, 106.000 new cases of coronavirus infection have been recorded in the world, which is the largest daily increase in the number of infected since the beginning of the pandemic", the WHO Director General said, adding that nearly two thirds of those cases were registered in four countries. Keva Bain, The Bahamas' permanent representative to the UN, who presided over the 73rd World Health Assembly, proposed that the issue be kept for later in the year, as opposed to during the two-day summit, something she said the nations consented to.

With its curve of infections and deaths rising sharply, the country of 210 million ranks third in the world in terms of total cases, behind the United States and Russian Federation.

"In a sense, South America has become a new epicentre for the disease,"he said".

Trump declares places of worship 'essential,' setting up standoff with governors
Despite many churches holding services online, President Trump remarked Thursday that it was not the same as attending in person. He said if governors don't abide by his request, he will "override" them, though it is unclear what authority he has to do so.

More than 325,000 people have lost their lives, according to the AFP tally.

First drafted by the European Union, it was first initially proposed by 100 World Health Organization member states, including China, while the US abstained.

Meanwhile, Teros said he has received a letter from Trump, but didn't want to comment further.

Trump on Monday made the surprise announcement that he is taking hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malaria drug that his own government experts say is not suitable for fighting the novel coronavirus.

It warned that calls by the United States and more than a dozen other countries for Taiwan to be allowed to participate as an observer risked "seriously violating relevant UN and World Health Organization resolutions and undermining global anti-epidemic efforts". Several studies have cast doubt on the efficacy of the drug as a treatment for Covid-19.

The majority of cases in Brazil are in the Sao Paulo region, Ryan said, adding that the states of Rio de Janeiro, Ceara, Amazonas and Pernambuco have been affected as well.
