WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, had accused Taiwan of driving a campaign against him. Taiwan demands an apology, and sees itself as the ”true victim of unfair treatment.” A feud between Taiwan and the World Health Organization (WHO) escalated on Thursday, with the self-governing island rejecting claims that it had been racist towards Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. During a press briefing in Geneva the day before, Tedros vocally defended himself and his agency’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. He accused Taiwan’s foreign ministry of being linked to a months-long campaign against him.
