India's migrant workers protest lockdown extension to curb virus
Germany slammed Wednesday the US decision to suspend payments to the World Health Organization (WHO), as Foreign Minister Heiko Maas warned against "blaming others" for the coronavirus crisis.
US President Donald Trump announced the funding freeze on Tuesday, accusing the WHO of "severely mismanaging" the spread of the virus.
"Blaming others won't help. The virus knows no borders," Maas wrote on Twitter.
"One of the best investments is to strengthen the UN, above all the under-financed WHO... in the development and distribution of tests and vaccines."
The United States is the biggest contributor to the WHO, making payments of $400 million last year.
