WHO backs opening of countries after quarantine

The World Health Organization supports the discovery of countries after quarantine, but it is important to take precautions to prevent disaster, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said at a briefing
WHO fully supports efforts to open up economies and communities. We want to see kids go back to school and people go to their jobs. But we want to see it happen safely… The more countries control the virus, the more they can open up. Opening without control is a recipe for disaster.

According to him, states should take at least four basic steps before returning to normal life.

Specifically, limit transmission of the virus among large groups of people. Such infections are recorded at mass events, including nightclubs, stadiums, and large religious gatherings. Second, it is important to protect the most vulnerable groups to reduce mortality. Thirdly, everyone should do their part to ensure the safety of society – wearing a mask, keeping distance, and washing their hands. And fourthly, the authorities should take measures to identify, isolate, test, and treat the sick, as well as to track contacts.
