Geneva: The World Health Organization(WHO) report said that it is still possible to bring coronavirus outbreaks under control.
The number of coronavirus cases has been doubled in the past six weeks.
While briefing to the media through a virtual press conference in Geneva., WHO Chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said that the examples of Italy, Spain, South Korea and India’s biggest slum showed that however bad an outbreak was, the virus could still be reined in through aggressive action.
In addition to this, he said that “there are many examples from around the world that have shown that even if the outbreak is very intense, it can still be brought back under control,” said Tedros.
Furtherly he said “And some of these examples are Italy, Spain and South Korea, and even in Dharavi — a densely packed area in the megacity of Mumbai — a strong focus on community engagement and the basics of testing, tracing, isolating and treating all those that are sick is key to breaking the chains of transmission and suppressing the virus.”
