In WHO told how there are “new waves” of coronavirus

Closing borders alone will not prevent the spread of the coronavirus. This was stated by Michael Ryan, Director of the WHO health emergency program, against the backdrop of the growing COVID-19 pandemic.

“WHO has always said that all measures related to travel should be implemented with other accompanying measures,” he stressed. — Similarly, washing your hands or wearing a mask alone will not be effective. We are talking about a whole set of measures.”

“As for the current situation, we need to understand that the virus is everywhere, and when it has the opportunity, it will move,” the expert said. “We also need to understand the additional risks that opening borders will lead to and manage these risks.”

Ryan is convinced that countries will not be able to keep their borders closed.

“The economy must continue to work, the movement of people, goods, and services must be carried out. But it should be done in a way that minimizes the risks, “ he said.

According to him, “the complete closure of international borders is not a sustainable strategy for the recovery of the world economy.”

“There is no single solution, but it is important to make progress in this regard, and progress that takes into account all the risks,” the WHO representative said.

Also, according to him, it is possible to hold discussions about the second peak or second wave of coronavirus for a long time, but it is much more important now to take all possible measures to prevent the spread of the disease.

“The assumption that the disease will develop in waves is based on other types of coronavirus. Countries that have implemented control measures have been able to suppress the virus. But when these measures are removed, the virus, of course, returns. That is, when we apply pressure — the numbers decrease when the pressure eases-the the virus returns. Therefore, to raise the question of the second wave or peak is even in some sense incorrect. The question that needs to be asked is what pressure is being put on the virus, whether the necessary controls and infrastructure measures have been implemented. You need to understand that as soon as you release the pressure, the virus will definitely return, “ said Michael Ryan.
