Senate GOP chairman criticizes Trump withdrawal from WHO.

'Senate Health Committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) said Friday that he disagrees with President Trump's decision to end U.S. membership in the World Health Organization (WHO), adding a prominent Republican voice to criticism of the move from health experts and Democrats.

"I disagree with the president's decision," Alexander said in a statement.

"Certainly there needs to be a good, hard look at mistakes the World Health Organization might have made in connection with coronavirus, but the time to do that is after the crisis has been dealt with, not in the middle of it."

He added that withdrawal of U.S. funding and membership in the WHO could hurt its efforts to coordinate work on a coronavirus vaccine, as well as its work on other viruses that can reach American shores.

"Withdrawing U.S. membership could, among other things, interfere with clinical trials that are essential to the development of vaccines, which citizens of the United States as well as others in the world need," Alexander said. "And withdrawing could make it harder to work with other countries to stop viruses before they get to the United States."'>>>
