Taiwan Hits Back at WHO Chief for Saying He Received 'Racist' Comments

Taiwan Hits Back at WHO Chief for Saying He Received 'Racist' Comments

The video titled, "An Open Letter to Dr Tedros" uploaded by Vivi Lin has since gained over 1.2 million views, 80,000 thumbs up and 5,000 comments on Youtube.

"Falsely claiming to be Taiwanese and openly admitting to racist attacks on WHO Director General Tedros and begging forgiveness seriously damages our country's global reputation", it added in a statement.

Some public health experts say that the WHO had little choice but to cooperate with China to preserve access in Wuhan.

"The mortality rate of COVID-19 is estimated to be 10 times higher than influenza", Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told diplomatic mission chiefs via video.

At this time the WHO has encountered several cases, including propagation community, in 16 nations of that continent without a known source; a phenomenon that represents a threat to the health systems of the region, already overburdened by themselves. In contrast, Taiwan's proactive approach combined with its state-of-the-art digital healthcare facilities stands out as a model for other countries to combat this pandemic.

World Health Organization emergencies director Michael Ryan said some 2,600 alerts were still being investigated every day in the DRC, with thousands of samples taken every week.

The WHO is supposed to be the facilitator and custodian of global health. Why would I care about being attacked if people are dying, we are losing lives every minute', said the Ethiopian-born official.

USA and Taiwanese officials met online last month to discuss ways of increasing the island's participation in the world health system, sparking fury from Beijing, which opposes all official contacts between Washington and Taipei. "We have never criticised you nor your actions based on your race, culture or skin colour", she reiterated.

Mr Ghebreyesus commented specifically on insults that he said came from Taiwan. In recent years, Taiwan has met with increasing difficulty to take part in the WHO, International Civil Aviation Organization, or Interpol activities, as Beijing ramps up pressure on those international organizations. "They even started criticizing me in the middle of all those insults and slurs", Tedros said.

"We can not tolerate that".

"I don't care, to be honest. even death threats". The hashtag has been used by Taiwanese netizens who began bombarding Twitter and Facebook with photos of Taiwan cuisine and landscapes as a response to Tedros' claim that Taiwanese had been attacking him. From Taiwan, the Foreign Ministry also, they know the campaign.

"Without having checked the facts, Tedros's unprovoked and untrue accusations not only differ from reality, they have also seriously harmed our government and our people".
