WHO calls on world community to take “immediate action” to curb the spread of COVID-19

Amid the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, the World Health Organization (WHO) on October 23, called on the international community to take “immediate action” to limit the spread of the novel Coronavirus quickly.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus in a news conference said, “The next few months are going to be very tough and some countries are on a dangerous track. We urge leaders to take immediate action, to prevent further unnecessary deaths, essential health services from collapsing and schools shutting again. As I said it in February and I’m repeating it today: This is not a drill.”

Suggesting the necessary measures to control the spread of the viral infection, Ghebreyesus said improving testing, tracing of contacts of infected persons and isolation of those at risk of spreading the virus could help ease the situation and avoid mandatory lockdowns.
