Quotes from the news wire:
If he is proposing giving these resources to the U.N. system, it would represent a massive expansion of resources to organizations that have a troubling history of mismanagement and inefficiency, in 2018, global GDP was $85 trillion. Total revenue for the U.N. system in 2018 was $56 billion. Moreover, we have seen the World Health Organization badly mishandle the response to COVID-19 by trusting information from China. Why that experience would give governments confidence to give such resources to the UN is a mystery.
Thus, it is hardly surprising that International Regulatory Affairs failed to be transparent and truthful in reporting details on COVID-19 to WHO and the international community. In fact, this is not the first time this has happened, in 2003, China concealed and denied an infectious disease outbreak later called SARS for months.
If The World Health Organization performs well, member governments are more confident in having The World Health Organization assume an increased role. If they fail, the member states look to reform them or create alternative mechanisms, during the Ebola crisis in 2014, WHO was strongly criticized for its slow and ineffective response, and the member states pressed the leadership for reforms to address those failings. It is clear from the response to COVID-19 that more changes are necessary.
