The resolution calls for an “impartial, independent and comprehensive evaluation” of the international response.

This investigation will also focus on the WHO’s response in the early phases of Covid-19 virus.

It also calls for the world to ensure “transparent, equitable and timely access” to any treatments or vaccines, and pushes for the WHO to investigate the “source of the virus and the route of introduction to the human population”.

“As I see no requests for the floor, I take it that there is no objection and the resolution is therefore adopted,” declared the assembly’s president, Keva Bain, the Bahamas ambassador.

WHO has been accused for working on the interest of China and for trying to cover up the outbreak.

US Health Secretary Alex Azar was scathing in his address to the assembly on Monday.

“We must be frank about one of the primary reasons this outbreak spun out of control: there was a failure by this organisation to obtain the information that the world needed, and that failure cost many lives,” he said.

WHO Chief Dr Tedros was already agreed for an independent evaluation, and said, what lessons could be learned and put forward any recommendations, would take place “at the earliest opportunity”.
