Van Hollen Statement on Biden Executive Order to Rejoin the WHO

Today, U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) released the following statement on President Joe Biden’s executive order reinstating the United States as a member of the World Health Organization (WHO): 

“The Trump Administration’s decision to withdraw the United States from the World Health Organization in the middle of a pandemic was deeply misguided and shortsighted. To stop the spread of COVID-19, we must work together. This common-sense decision by the Biden Administration will ensure American participation and provide long-overdue American leadership in the global fight against the coronavirus.”
