International Travel Bans can't Stay for a Long Time, Says WHO

International Travel Bans can't Stay for a Long Time, Says WHO”

It is a protocol to convene six months after WHO declared the disease a public health emergency, an announcement made on January 30.

"This is the sixth time a global health emergency has been declared under the International Health Regulations, but it is easily the most severe", Dr Tedros said.

The brand-new coronavirus pandemic that has actually contaminated more than 16 million individuals is quickly the worst global health emergency situation the World Health Organization (WHO) has actually dealt with, its director general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus stated on Monday.

"In the past six weeks, the total number of cases has roughly doubled", Mr. Tedros said.

"Where these measures are followed, cases go down".

"Where they're not, cases go up". He has said that countries namely, Canada, China, Germany, and South Korea have done a splendid job in controlling the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

"We have done an incredible amount, but we still have a long, hard road ahead of us".

Confirmed cases have nearly doubled in the past six weeks.

Ghebreysus said the pandemic demonstrates that health is not a reward for development, instead, it's the foundation of social, economic and political stability.

What sets apart those who have been successful thus far and those who have not is the willpower to act, he said.

"We are not prisoners of the pandemic", he said. Every single one of us can make a difference.

"Continuing to keep worldwide borders sealed is not necessarily a sustainable strategy for the world's economy, for the world's poor, or for anybody else", said Michael Ryan, WHO Emergencies Director. "The future is in our hands".
