Burundi expels national WHO head amid COVID-19 outbreak

NAIROBI, May 14 (Reuters) - Burundi has expelled the national head of the World Health Organisation (WHO), according to a letter written by the country’s foreign minister, which gave no reason.

Despite the coronavirus outbreak, Burundi is in the middle of campaigns for a presidential election next week, with politicians holding large rallies regardless of health risks. (Reporting by Nairobi Newsroom; Editing by Andrew Cawthorne)
