"The World Health Organization is the legitimate, global institution where all the threads come together.

Because that is the case we have to keep looking at how we can further improve its functioning," Merkel said in a video message at a WHO meeting, adding that this included ensuring it has sustainable financing.

Stressing that no country could tackle the coronavirus alone, she also said: "I am convinced we will overcome the pandemic.

The more we work together internationally, the quicker we will achieve this."
