    DescriptionIt’s not the first time Donald Trump's pulled the United States out of a global body, but to quit the World Health Organization in the midst of the planet's worst pandemic in decades? Under fire at home for his handling of the Covid-19 outbreak, the US president on Tuesday turned his guns on the WHO and accused the leadership of the Geneva-based UN body of being too beholden to China. Should Ethiopia's Tedros Adhanom have called out Beijing much earlier and could China have nipped this in the bud?
