WHO calls for immediate action to avoid further lockdown

Spain, one of the countries hardest hit by COVID-19, reported a resuscitation in some cases in late August after lockdown restrictions were relaxed. Around this time, France also reported an increase in active coronavirus cases. Recently, the World Health Organization had also said that Europe saw a 25 percent increase this month, even in confirmed cases. According to the WHO, Russia, the Czech Republic and Italy accounted for more than half of the new COVID-19 cases in Europe. The number of deaths in Europe “continues to rise”. In India, many experts warn of a renewed spike after the Christmas season, although the number of active cases has recently decreased. People are becoming complacent and this may be the reason for the recurrence of the viral disease in many countries around the world.

“At a critical point,” says WHO chief

“We are at a critical point in this pandemic, especially in the northern hemisphere,” he said. “Too many countries are seeing an exponential increase in cases, which means that hospitals and intensive care units are short or overloaded and we are only in October,” added the WHO chief. Ghebreyesus called on leaders to take immediate action to prevent further unnecessary deaths, the collapse of basic health services and the closure of schools.

Try to identify the source of the zoonotic disease

Maria Van Kerkhove, technical director of the WHO health emergencies program, also said progress is being made on plans for an international mission to identify the zoonotic source of the coronavirus. She said WHO had reached out to a group of international experts and is expected to share more information in the coming days. “The first cases were discovered in Wuhan, China last December, so the first studies will begin there,” she said, adding that the next phase of the studies will then be developed once the evidence and results from the first phase are available. “We will follow science and take the necessary steps that need to be taken,” added Van Kerkhove.
