WHO appoints 2 women to lead pandemic panel

The head of the World Health Organization says former Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and former New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark will lead a new panel to give an “honest assessment” of the global response to the coronavirus pandemic.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus announced the appointments to the newly created Independent Panel for Pandemic Preparedness and Response.





“I cannot Imagine two more strong-minded, independent leaders to help guide us through this critical learning process to help us understand what happened -- an honest assessment and to help us understand also what we should do to prevent such a tragedy in the future,” he said Thursday.
