U.S. Officially Withdraws From the World Health Organization

The U.S. has officially submitted a notice of withdrawal from the World Health Organization — effective July 6, 2021 — to the UN Secretary-General, according to a senior administration official.

The Trump White House and the international health body have been at odds for months over the US-19 handling of COVID-19 and the WHO’s relationship with China.

The move comes months after Trump began calling out the organization for its ties to China — it took until last week for the WHO to admit they first heard of the virus in December from the US and that China never self-reported.

Trump wrote a letter to the WHO calling for it to show independence from China in May and discussed leaving the body all together for months if it didn’t make serious changes — it appears the revisions weren’t made in time.

The withdrawing period will take place over the next year with the US fully removed by July 6, 2021.

The United States Army recorded and released unnerving video of a close encounter with a Chinese jet over the South China Sea. The Chinese military plane came “dangerously” close to the U.S. military aircraft in the international airspace last week, the U.S. military announced on Thursday.

The Indo-Pacific Command (INDOPACOM), the command responsible for overseeing U.S. operations in the area, said in a statement that the encounter occurred on December 21, during which a Chinese Navy J-11 fighter jet flew within 10 feet (3 meters) of a U.S. Air Force RC-135, a reconnaissance plane with about 30 people on board.

According to a U.S. military spokesperson, the Chinese jet came within 10 feet of the airplane’s wing, but 20 feet from its nose, causing the U.S. aircraft to take evasive maneuvers to avoid a collision.
