Has WHO become irrelevant and a drain on the world's health resources?

Today I read that WHO experts are "preparing to meet on Geneva" and that they will "attempt to develop a vaccine". What do they think the rest of the world has been doing in the mean time?

My case for WHO's irrelevance.

1. It took an absolute age for the WHO to declare a global emergency, when the world and his dog knew it already was days before, including pretty much every government. WHO made a big deal of of their declaration as though it really mattered to the world's public. It did not. Mainly we were curious why had they not already, what took them so long.

2. Governments have been cooperating directly with each other and managing to do it perfectly well. There is no need for a centralised "enabler" like the WHO. Could they actually be the opposite and actually get in the way of necessary action and progress?
