USA threatens to withdraw from WHO

The US is threatening to pull out of the World Health Organisation because of its response to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Donald Trump suspended the country's funding to the organisation last month. 

He says after an investigation, he continues to have 'serious concerns' about its response to the virus. 

The US president says he will permanently withdraw funding unless it commits to 'major improvements' in the next month. 

He says America will also 'reconsider' its membership of the organisation.
