I actually read about it here just now,
Food hunting in Kuchai Lama
Taiwan, a self-ruled democratic island, was expelled from the World Health Organisation in 1971 and from 2009 to 2016, Taiwan could still attend the World Health Assembly (WHA) as an observer. However, that came to an end in 2017.
Come Monday (May 18, 2020) representatives of 194 countries will have a virtual WHA and one of the highlights of the meeting is to vote whether Taiwan will be back on board as an observer.
It’ll be interesting to see if the bigger nations, especially India who will be helming the World Health Organisation (WHO) beginning Friday (May 22, 2020), will give its vote to the tiny powerhouse.I hope they let Taiwan in again.
If I have my way, I want them to let Taiwan in as a full member.
They really shouldn't exclude that country in the first place just because of pressure from the communists in Beijing.
I believe that if Taiwan had not been expelled from WHO and later on ignored by it, the Covid-19 fight may have been much more successful.
I really hope the countries of the world will change their attitude towards Taiwan.
They should stop just .thinking of profits to be made from doing business with the communists in Beijing.
The Covid-19 crisis should teach them that there are more important values that need to be considered other than just the corporate bottom line.
Covid-19 didn't start in Taiwan, okay.
Taiwan has better transparency and accountability because it's a democratic country.
