Jair Bolsonaro threatens to withdraw from WHO
After the United States, Brazil is now threatened with leaving the World Health Organization. The coronavirus is particularly prevalent in the country.
During the worsening Corona crisis in Brazil, President Jair Bolsonaro threatens to leave the World Health Organization (WHO). Right-wing extremist Bolsonaro accused WHO on Friday (local time) of being a “partisan political organization”. If she doesn’t change this, his country will consider leaving; he told journalists. Bolsonaro thus represents a position similar to that of US President Donald Trump.
The latter had recently terminated US relations with the WHO. Trump accuses her of being completely under Chinese control. Bolsonaro and Trump have a close relationship. They are similar in their harsh and aggressive rhetoric as well as in some political views, which is why Bolsonaro is also called “tropical Trump”. Bolsonaro is also heavily criticized for dealing with the corona pandemic. In the past, he called the lung disease Covid-19 caused by the virus “small flu”.
