A WHO igazgatója úgy nyilatkozott, hogy sok van még előttünk a világ koronavírus krízisének feloldásáig.
World has ‘a long way to go’, warns WHO chief
The director general of the World Health Organization has said that there is still “a long way to go” in tackling the coronavirus crisis around the world.
Speaking at the WHO’s thrice-weekly press conference, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said that while most national epidemics in western Europe had appeared to have stabilised or were declining, outbreaks appeared to be growing in Africa, central and south America, and eastern Europe.
And he warned against complacency, insisting that lockdown measures had no doubt helped curb the spread of the virus.
Most countries are still in the early stages of their epidemics and some that were affected early in the pandemic are now starting to see a resurgence in cases.
Make no mistake, we have a long way to go. This virus will be with us for a long time. There is no question that stay-at-home orders and other physical distancing measures have successfully suppressed transmission in many countries. But this virus remains extremely dangerous.
“One of the greatest dangers we face now is complacency. People in countries with #StayHome orders are understandably frustrated with being confined to their homes for weeks on end”-@DrTedros #COVID19
