World Health Organization praises Trump's leadership in response to coronavirus pandemic”

The lockdown will be in effect till April 14.

Outside China, the number of confirmed cases has risen to 334,817, among which over 190,000 were reported by the four hard-hit countries with over 30,000 cases each - Italy, the United States, Spain, and Germany. Of these, 10 people have died. Even so, he also asserted that measures like lockdowns and mass movements alone would not extinguish epidemics. Director-General of WHO Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on Thursday stated that the enforced lockdowns around the globe have been helpful in reducing the pressure on the health systems, but said it may not necessarily be the panacea for extinguishing epidemics.

Tedros has previously warned that countries taking measures to lock down their societies must use the time wisely to implement other aggressive interventions, including widespread testing and efforts to track down the virus' transmission chains.

"First, expand, train and deploy your health care and public health workforce". "Identify, adapt and equip facilities you will use to treat and isolate patients", he added.

"Fifth, develop a clear plan and process to quarantine contacts".

"These measures are the best way to suppress and stop transmission so that when restrictions are lifted, the coronavirus doesn't resurge", he said. "The answer depends on what countries do while these wide measures are in place". World Health Organization and other experts say it could be months before the outbreak peaks and loosening such controls too soon could allow the virus to resurge. "So it's very important, like what is happening now in India which we really commend to cut it from the bud, when you only have 606 cases".
