WHO says that we might have to get used to the coronavirus

WHO cautions the world about the forever-stay of the coronavirus

Thursday, 14th May 2020


World Health Organization (WHO) cautioned the world this Wednesday telling that Coronavirus may not completely depart from the world and we need to learn to live our life with it. As some of the countries have already announced easing of the lockdown rules, WHO reminds us of the virus’s pretty long lifespan on this world and of the possibility of its forever-stay on this planet. The virus was born in China’s Wuhan City towards the end of 2019 and since then has infected over 4.2 million people worldwide and has taken the lives of as many as 300, 000 people.

 

Michael Ryan; the Emergencies Director of WHO said: ‘We have a new virus entering the human population for the first time and therefore it is very hard to predict when we will prevail over it.’

 

He also said to the reporters at the Geneva Press Conference (Virtual): "This virus may become just another endemic virus in our communities and this virus may never go away,"

 

In this context he drew an example of the HIV virus which too hasn’t left the world but we have learnt to accept this and live with it.

Some kind of lockdown has been imposed on over half of the humanity since the start of the coronavirus crisis.

 

WHO further said that it cannot be guaranteed that no fresh wave of coronavirus infection would break out with the easing of lockdown restrictions. Thus, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the WHO Chief suggests: "But our recommendation is still the alert at any country should be at the highest level possible."

 

 "Long, long way to go" is the phrase Michael Ryan uses to describe the possibility of life swinging back to normalcy in the current situation. Thus, he also insists that nations should continue staying the current life order.

 

Irish epidemiologist said in support: "There is some magical thinking going on that lockdowns work perfectly and that unlocking lockdowns will go great. Both are fraught with dangers,"

 

Also Ryan strongly condemned the incidents of attacks on the healthcare staffs associated with the pandemic and said that over 35 such majorly serious incidents of attacks were reported in the 11 different countries of the globe in the month of April alone. He added that most of these attacks came from the ill-informed human communities while some others were even more dangerous.

 

He said that COVID-19 is bringing the best aspects out of us but also the most evil aspects in some cases. These acts of discrimination and violence are senseless and need to be strongly resisted in the opinion of Ryan.

 

But he pointed out that a way to defeat the virus was an opportunity for mankind to take some vital steps towards developing a vaccine and allowing the vaccine to be accessible to all.
