World Health Organization urges the world to withstand the war against coronavirus

US, WASHINGTON (NEWS OBSERVATORY) — The World Health Organization director-general, Tedros Adhanom Gebresos, called on all nations on Thursday to “persist and persevere” in the battle with the Coruna epidemic.

He said in a speech to diplomats in Geneva, a day after describing “Covid-19” as a pandemic, “describing it as a pandemic does not mean that states surrender. The idea of ​​countries turning from containment to mitigation is wrong and dangerous.”

He went on to say that all countries, while pursuing the containment strategy, must “strike a good balance between protecting health, preventing economic and social confusion and respecting human rights,” according to statements reported by the organization.
