WHO expert warns of “a lot of illness and death in...

The World Health Organization (WHO) Special Representative for Covid-19, Dr. David Nabarro, has warned that in Ireland “there will be a lot of sickness and death in the next two months” if people are not careful.

Dr. Nabarro said there is a middle ground between a full lockdown and easing restrictions. National lockdown should only be considered if the numbers were “very bad”.

While he “hated governments with second guesswork,” he said, when sitting next to the chief medical officer chatting about the situation, he would suggest that the focus should be on anyone adhering to the preventive measures.

Dr. Nabarro also said he didn’t like fines (for non-compliance). He said he preferred when people choose to do the right thing. “That’s how they get things moving. We have to take care of it because we want to “.

Financial support

Every county needs a robust system of testing, tracking and isolation so that outbreaks can be identified and treated as they occur, he said. There also had to be a system of financial support so that people weren’t afraid of losing money if they didn’t go to work because they were sick.

It is risky not to move from level 3 to level 5, he said. It would take a month to six weeks before it was known whether this was the “right way”.

Dr. Nabarro pointed out that the virus has actually accumulated in other parts of Europe. There was no reason to believe Ireland would escape.

“If you want to stay at level 3, please do everything possible to stop the virus from spreading,” he urged.
