The organization is confident that it is possible to manage the situation with the virus and maintain the economy in action.
The World Health Organization (WHO) believes that Europe can withstand the coronavirus pandemic without resorting to a complete shutdown of the economy. This was announced by the head of the WHO’s European department Hans Kluge
According to him, the Authorities of European countries have accumulated enough information about COVID-19.
“Through basic nationwide and additional targeted measures, we have many more opportunities to eradicate local outbreaks of the virus. We can manage the situation with the virus and keep in action both the economy and the functioning of the educational system,” Kluge said.
He noted that the current situation was different from that of the first wave of coronavirus. Now, in addition to general hygiene and social distancing rules, WHO recommends additional measures to contain the virus locally if required.
Kluge also noted that now it is important to open schools for children, as all countries are gradually returning to a normal way of life.
The WHO has been urged not to quarantine any more.
