image for Petition urging WHO head to resign gets traction

An online petition calling for the head of the World Health Organization to resign over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic has received over 560,000 signatures worldwide.

It says the spread of the coronavirus is partly due to his underestimation of the situation.

It says, "A lot of us are really disappointed, we believe WHO is supposed to be politically neutral."

The WHO chief has made no mention of the petition so far. »
