mismanaging and covering up the spread of the coronavirus.” The actual 
explanation for depriving the organization of 22 percent of its 
resources at this critical juncture was that the WHO is a convenient 
scapegoat for his own slow and ineffective responses to what he earlier 
had called a “hoax.”"
