Sen. Todd Young is calling on World Health Organization Director General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus to appear before a Senate Foreign Relations subcommittee to answer questions about the organization’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
The WHO in recent days has faced heated criticism from Senate Republicans and President Donald Trump, who argue the organization did not do enough to scrutinize China’s response to the outbreak.
“It has given sanction to the ham-fisted response of the Chinese and the misinformation perpetuated by the Chinese,” Young (R-Ind.) said in an interview. “On all fronts, I’ve been not just unimpressed but outraged by the responsiveness and the performance of the World Health Organization.”
