Sen. Martha McSally, R-Ariz., on Thursday called on the World Health Organization director general to step down for his alleged help in covering up China's underreporting of the coronavirus, part of an escalating series of GOP criticisms of the organization.

In an interview on Fox Business, McSally said Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus should resign over the organization's handling of the pandemic, which originated in China. 

China has claimed it has essentially flattened new cases of the deadly virus now killing thousands of Americans, but a U.S. intelligence report has questioned that.

"I’ve never trusted a communist,” McSally declared. “And their cover-up of this virus that originated with them has caused unnecessary deaths around America and the world," said McSally, who is up for reelection this fall. 

"The WHO needs to stop covering for them,” she added. “I think Dr. Tedros needs to step down. We need to take some action to address this issue. It's just irresponsible, it’s unconscionable what they have done here while we have people dying across the globe."

Earlier this week, Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., called for a congressional probe into the WHO and indicated that perhaps the United States should withhold funding for “helping Communist China cover up” the ramifications of the virus. 

McSally agreed "we need to look at addressing the WHO as well." She also said U.S. debts to China "should be forgiven, as a minimum."

Tarik Jašarević, a spokesman for the WHO, told Politico the organization expects members "to report data in a timely and accurate manner.”
