The United States has sent a notice to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to formally withdraw from the World Health Organization, which has been confirmed by the White House.
A senior Trump administration official said the resignation was given a year in advance. Therefore, the United States cannot secede from the WHO until July 6, 2021.
In April, US President Donald Trump accused the World Health Organization of failing to provide timely and transparent information about the spread of the coronavirus, so the United States would cut off about 500 million in annual aid to the World Health Organization.
On the other hand, US Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has said that if he is elected president, the United States will rejoin the World Health Organization on the first day.
