WHO Director-General Tan Desai said on the 8th, “Please do not politicize this virus. It is taking advantage of the differences between different countries. If you want to be used (by it) like this, if you want to have more Shroud, okay, then you do it like this “, these words are generally considered to be a response to Trump’s remarks.
