The USA is Still a WHO Member

Update: The US government has now begun the one-year process of formally withdrawing from the WHO. It will remain a member until July 6, 2021, or longer if the process is canceled or not completed.

The World Health Organization includes almost every country in the world, coordinated by six different regional offices (public domain map; source).

Is the US leaving the WHO?

Last weekend US president Donald Trump made a statement that seemed to imply the country was withdrawing from membership in the World Health Organization (WHO).

Citing accusations that the body is overly influenced by China, the US president said "We will be today terminating our relationship with the World Health Organization".

Bu what exactly does that mean?
