W.H.O Says Its Racist to Criticize Them for COVID-19 Response

Instead of confronting valid criticism on their failure of a response to the coronavirus, the World Health Organization is deciding to call anyone who criticizes them racist.
Taiwan specifically, has been very critical of the coronavirus response from the W.H.O considering they tried warning them of COVID-19 but were ignored.
The Daily Wire reports:
Taiwan, which has struggled with gaining international recognition and was all but cut out of the World Health Organization’s coronavirus response, has been particularly critical of the WHO, claiming that it tried repeatedly to warn the global health group that China was withholding, hiding, and even actively quashing vital information about the spread of COVID-19. Taiwan also says that its response to the coronavirus was better than China’s and that its data on the disease could help other countries — but that the data must be separate from China’s in order to visualize Taiwan’s results.
The WHO responded by locking Taiwan out completely, lumping its coronavirus-related data in with China’s, and, in one telling interview, WHO leadership even refused to acknowledge Taiwan’s independence — a clear sign that the WHO defers to Chinese officials.
The United States is also now questioning the WHO's apparent allegiance to Communist China. World Health Organization director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus is now claiming that Taiwan is racist for calling them out, stating that they are promoting a racist campaign against Africans.
“When as a community people start to insult us, that’s enough,” Tedros said. “We cannot tolerate that. But since I don’t have any inferiority complex when I am personally affected or attacked by racial slurs, I don’t care because I am a very proud black person.”
“This attack comes from Taiwan,” he added. “The foreign ministry knows about this campaign and they didn’t disassociate themselves.”
The Daily Wire continues:
Tedros went on to blame Taiwan for inappropriately influencing the United States and President Donald Trump, who said Tuesday that he and the State Department are investigating whether China improperly influenced the WHO’s coronavirus response, and whether to rescind the approximately $400 million the United States sends to the WHO each year.
Taiwan shot back on Thursday.
“Taiwan’s foreign ministry demanded an apology for what it called unnecessary and slanderous comments,” BI reported.
“Without having checked the facts, Tedros’s unprovoked and untrue accusations not only differ from reality, they have also seriously harmed our government and our people,” said the foreign ministry of Taiwan in a statement. “This kind of slander is extremely irresponsible.”
“Taiwan always objects discrimination in any form. We know how it feels to be discriminated against and isolated more than anyone else as we have been excluded from global organizations for years,” Taiwan’s president said in a Facebook post. “So I’d like to invite Tedros to visit Taiwan, to see how Taiwanese commit to devote to international society despite being discriminated and isolated.”
