At a press conference, Word Health Organization's Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said: "we continue to see misinformation on social media and mainstream media about the pandemic accord that countries are now negotiating."

Earlier on Twitter, Elon Musk wrote: "countries should not cede authority to WHO."

Without naming the South African billionaire directly, the WHO chief says "the claim that the accord will cede power to WHO is quite simply false. It's fake news."
