Director General Of WHO Receives Death Threats Over COVID-19

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director-General

The Director General of the World Health Organisation has said that he has received death threats following the outbreak of the coronavirus.

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said he has for months been abused racially and called names like ”black or negro”.

His comments follow emerging campaign by American politicians for him to be removed from office for allegedly covering up for China in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.

Ghebreyesus told journalists that “”I can tell you personal attacks that have been going on for more than 2-3 months. Abuses or racist comments, giving me names…even death threats. I don’t give a damn.”

“When it’s personal, even death threats, I didn’t care. When as community, people start to insult us, that’s enough.”
