  1. Ghebreyesus sounds like the name of a boss in Final Fantasy.

  2. change.org petitions mean about as much as this comment.

  3. Some lucky marketing company just got 700,000 new emails to spam to.

  4. And who would replace him?

  5. The WHO is perpetually stuck with an impossible job. Either they act before they have enough information and get shit for causing disturbances when these diseases don’t live up to the pandemic label, or they wait until they have that data and then they’re crucified for not acting sooner.

    Just look at the response they received when SARS didn’t turn into the massive issue they were warning it would be. For those who don’t remember, there was a lot of public outcry that the reaction was overblown and unnecessary.

  7. The dude covered up a cholera pandemic in his own country, and then continued to lie about it. Then when surrounding countries started to identify the disease, and realized it had spread from his country, he tried to pay off the doctors who discovered it. The fact that he is STILL the director general of the WHO tells you pretty much all you need to know about the WHO.

    Edit: It was cholera, not E Coli, my bad.

  8. Hell, I’m still pissed off at their bowing to China when [it comes to alternative medicine](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Health_Organization#WHO_and_traditional_medicine).

  9. Wait what. Why? What has the WHO done wrong?

  10. Ah the populist online petition, as meaningful in the real world as “thoughts and prayers”.

  11. Americans: ”WHO sucks!”, “China’s puppet!”

    Also Americans: “WHO says don’t wear masks. I’m not wearing masks. Masks don’t do anything.”

    America: “Shit! We don’t have enough masks.”

    America: Leading the world in total cases of COVID-19 even though they were warned and had time to prepare. Then stole shipments of masks from Canada and Germany.

    Edit: After reading some comments below, may I add

    Americans: “China lied about their number. So they probably actually have more deaths than us. Hooray!”

    Jesus Christ, people! This is not a fucking competition. So what if China lied? So what if they have more cases than us? Does it make us the good guy? Does it make this situation any better? Instead of trying to defend this shit show in America by arguing that some other country look worse, can we just admit that our government fucked up and just try to do whatever it takes to protect ourselves and others around us? Stay home, wash your hands, wear masks when you go outside. That’s all that matters right now. I’m an American, and I’m so disappointed with the attitude that we have and how defensive we are.

    Edit 2: According to the latest news, the issues regarding shipments of masks to Canada and Germany have been resolved. It was just a misunderstanding.

    I still stand by my point that our government totally fucked this up. The CDC should have provided proper guidelines regarding masks. But they realized we didn’t have enough masks so they misled people into believing masks don’t protect them until very recently. Even now, many people still believe masks don’t do anything.
