The international news agency claimed WHO’s representative Triphonie Nkurunziza is accused of “falsifying” the country’s tally of coronavirus cases. But the doctor remains in Malabo for now because there are no outbound flights to enable her to leave the country.

 

“We don’t have a problem with the WHO, we have a problem with the WHO’s representative in Malabo,” Prime Minister Pascual Obama Asue, told the Senate late last week

 

AFP quotes a source at the UN office in the capital, Malabo, as saying: “The government has asked her to go, we have received a document – she is accused of falsifying COVID-19 figures”.

 

As of Thursday morning, there have been 1306 confirmed cases of Coronavirus Equatorial Guinea with 12 deaths, 200 recoveries, and 1094 active cases.

 

Last month, Burundi also sacked a World Health Organization’s top official and three experts after they raised concerns about crowded political rallies days before the country’s presidential election.
