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.
