Washington: US President Joe Biden has signed an executive order to reintegrate the country into the World Health Organization (WHO) as soon as he takes charge. Former President Donald Trump last year announced the separation of the US from the United Nations Health Agency, accusing it of being unable to combat the corona virus and coming under Chinese influence. In April last year, Trump had also stopped funding to the WHO and said “it is actually being controlled by China”. Trump did not stop this, he also started the process of formally separating America from the organization. The verdict was to come into effect from July this year, but Biden’s signing of this executive order will now cancel the earlier order.

He said that being part of America’s global vaccination program would ensure fair access to vaccines in all countries.
“It is important to support the WHO for better coordinated action against Kovid-19,” according to a statement issued on Wednesday by the UN chief’s spokesman. Gutarais said it was a show of unity and for the international community. It is time to work in solidarity so that the virus and its disastrous consequences can be prevented. The statement said, “Vaccine is an important tool to combat Kovid-19, so being part of and supporting America’s ‘Kovacs’ campaign will accelerate efforts for fair access to all countries.” ‘
