Japan's Finance Minister Taro Aso answers questios during a upper house plenary session at parliament in Tokyo on March 6, 2020.

Taro Aso, who serves as Japan’s Deputy Prime Minister, blasted the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) for its soft stance toward communist China amid the outbreak of the coronavirus, saying that the organization should be renamed as the “China Health Organization.”

“Although the details are murky, the W.H.O.’s previous director-general was a Chinese national and at the time there were complaints all around, and now at least the petition has gathered 300,000 signatures or rather 500,000 signatures,” Aso said, according to Formosa TV. “People think the World Health Organization should change its name. It shouldn’t be called the W.H.O., it should be renamed the C.H.O., this appeal is truly resonating with the people.”
