The head of the World Health Organization took aim at President Trump’s criticism of the agency on Wednesday, telling him and other world leaders not to politicize the coronavirus crisis “if you don’t want many more body bags.”

“If you don’t want many more body bags you refrain from politicizing it – please quarantine politicizing COVID,” WHO Director Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told reporters in a lengthy answer when asked about Trump’s criticism of the agency. A day earlier, the U.S. president had threatened to cut off funding.

The article goes on to state the following:

“My short message is please quarantine politicizing COVID – the unity of your country will be very important to defeat this dangerous virus. Without unity we assure you even any country that may have a better system will be in more trouble. That’s our message,” he said.

“The United States and China should come together and fight this dangerous enemy, they should come together to fight it and the rest of G-20 should come together to fight it, and the rest of the world should come together and fight it,” he said. “We will have many body bags in front of us if we don’t behave. When there are cracks at [the] national level and global level, that is when the virus succeeds.”

Tedros’s remarks come the day after Trump threatened to cut funding to WHO.

“We’re going to put a very powerful hold on it,” Trump said during Tuesday’s White House coronavirus taskforce press conference.

Trump appeared to back off later, saying, “I said we’re going to look at it, we’re going to investigate it.”
