WHO urges for strong fight

Geneva, July 4:

The World Health Organisation’s emergencies chief says we need to put up a fight now during a peak in the current wave of the coronavirus pandemic rather than focusing on when a second wave might come.

Dr. Michael Ryan said the world will be much better at fighting a second wave, if people can learn the lessons of fighting the first wave.

WHO officials emphasised mask-wearing, social distancing, and hygiene by individuals, along with contact-tracing and tracking of cases by health authorities as key strategies to fight the virus.

Ryan said the world was experiencing a second peak in the first wave a situation in which the virus hasn’t been suppressed enough to quell transmission to end the first one.
