The Ethiopian microbiologist and President of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said he has received various kind of racist insults, mainly from Taiwan. 

“I can tell you personal attacks that have been going on for more than two, three months.

“Abuses, or racist comments, giving me names, black or Negro. I’m proud of being black, proud of being Negro,” he told reporters in a press conference today.

“I don’t care, to be honest … I don’t give a damn,” he added. 

Tedros, who is handling the global coronavirus pandemic, said the insults he receive came from Taiwan.

“This attack came from Taiwan. We need to be honest,” he said.

Coronavirus pandemic has so far infected more than 1,452,378 people around the world and killed at least 83,615, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. 

We don’t care about personal attacks, he said.

“We care about the life passing every single minute unnecessarily because we couldn’t unite to fight this virus.” – Malaysia World News
