WHO says report of phone call between director-general and Chinese President ‘unfounded and untrue’

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has dismissed reports in German newspaper Der Spiegel that claimed the Chinese President Xi Jinping had personally requested WHO chief to hold back information on the coronavirus pandemic. Der Spiegel in an article citing intelligence reports claimed that Chinese President Xi Jinping asked the UN agency’s Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus to hold back information on human-to-human transmission and delay a pandemic warning. WHO said the allegations are “unfounded and untrue” and that the two have never spoken by phone.
