Bri­tish me­dia calls U.S. cam­paign against WHO ‘faintly pre­pos­ter­ous’

Fiji Sun - - WORLD NEWS -

Lon­don: The U.S. ad­min­is­tra­tion has launched a “faintly pre­pos­ter­ous” cam­paign against the World Health Or­gan­i­sa­tion (WHO), aim­ing to di­vert at­ten­tion from its “cat­a­strophic re­sponse to COVID-19,” Bri­tish news­pa­per The Guardian has re­ported.
