WHO Asks Nations Not to be too Quick to Ease Coronavirus Restrictions

Officials of World Health Organization have warned nations globally against lifting government lockdowns to contain the Covid-19 outbreak too soon. WHO said, the coronavirus spreads fast and is 10 times deadlier than the 2009 flu pandemic.

“While Covid-19 accelerates very fast, it decelerates much more slowly. In other words, the way down is much slower than the way up,” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said at a press conference at the organization’s Geneva headquarters on Monday. “That means control measures must be lifted slowly and with control. It cannot happen all at once.”

U.S. political leaders, from President Donald Trump to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, have said they hope to reopen businesses as soon as its safe to do so.  “Control measures can only be lifted if the right public health measures are in place, including significant capacity for contact tracing,” Tedros said.
