Female leaders have performed better in general than their male counterparts in dealing with the coronavirus around the world, according to former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, Business Insider reported on Wednesday.

"There is a correlation between countries with women leaders and very positive responses to COVID-19," Clinton said this week during a virtual summit sponsored by CARE, an international humanitarian agency. “Women have been demonstrating the kind of inclusive, empathetic, science-based leadership that we should be trying to promote across the world."

The summit — which featured Clinton, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and other notable figures — focused on the disproportionate impact the pandemic has had on women, as well the efforts to overcome racial injustice.

Clinton stressed that “Women's voices and experiences have to be heard and respected if we're going to be able to deal not just with the pandemic today, but with the future of the pandemic, because unfortunately it's going to be around for quite some time."

The former secretary of state also harshly criticized President Donald Trump for his attempt to cut off ties with the World Health Organization, saying that it is inexplicable "To think that we would be retreating from that leadership and from the only international organization that is tasked with trying to keep us healthy and to respond to epidemics when we know that in many parts of the world, COVID-19 is just arriving."
