The quarantine restrictions imposed by countries alone will not be able to completely stop the spread of the coronavirus. This was during the briefing said the Director-General of the World Health Organization Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.
According to him, quarantine measures only help slow down the transmission of infection.
The head of WHO also claims that one of the main tools to combat the spread of the virus is to track, identify, and isolate contacts.
вЂњNo country can get control over the epidemic if it does not know where the virus,вЂќ said Ghebreyesus.
He also noted the important role of mobile apps that help track potentially infected users. At the same time, the head of the organization stressed that nothing will replace trained workers who вЂњgo from door to doorвЂќ in search of infected and contact persons to break the chain of transmission of the virus.
вЂњContact tracking is necessary for every country, in every situation. This can prevent the transformation of individual cases into clusters, and clusters are further spread in the societyвЂќ, вЂ” concluded the head of the WHO.
