U.S. formally withdraws from WHO

The Trump administration sent a letter giving the United Nations a one-year notice before the U.S. leaves the World Health Organization. The U.S. Congress received formal notification of the decision on Tuesday, more than a month after President Trump announced his intention to end the U.S. relationship with the WHO. The White House said the withdrawal would take effect on July 6, 2021. What does a U.S. exit from the WHO mean for global health efforts and the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic? Could leaving the organization cost more lives? Is the withdrawal plan a scapegoat for U.S. failure in controlling the coronavirus?
