Officials from the World Health Organization are holding a briefing to discuss the latest developments in the ongoing coronavirus pandemic as the United States continues to be the global epicenter, accounting for 25% of the world’s cases and 19% of all deaths.

This week, the UN health organization is holding their annual executive board meeting. Dr. Anthony Fauci has been tapped by Pres. Biden to serve as the leader of the U.S. delegation to the health agency’s executive board. Last week, Dr. Fauci spoke before the board to reaffirm the United States’ commitment to the global health organization following Biden’s executive action to reverse former Pres. Trump’s intention to leave it.

‘As a WHO member state, the United States will work constructively with partners to strengthen and importantly reform the WHO, to help lead the collective effort to strengthen the international COVID-19 response and address its secondary impacts on people, communities, and health systems around the world,’ Fauci said, adding that the country is also ‘committed to transparency.’
