The World Health Organization has warned in opposition to counting on COVID-19 lockdowns to sort out outbreaks. The warning comes after the UN physique beforehand stated that international locations must be cautious how rapidly they reopen.
“We in the World Health Organization do not advocate lockdowns as the primary means of control of this virus. The only time we believe a lockdown is justified is to buy you time to reorganize, regroup, rebalance your resources, protect your health workers who are exhausted, but by and large, we’d rather not do it”, WHO envoy David Nabarro stated.
Nabarro added that lockdowns have severely impacted international locations that depend on tourism: “Just look at what’s happened to the tourism industry in the Caribbean, for example, or in the Pacific because people aren’t taking their holidays”, he stated, and added:
“Look what’s happened to smallholder farmers all over the world. Look what’s happening to poverty levels. It seems that we may well have a doubling of world poverty by next year. We may well have at least a doubling of child malnutrition”.
The WHO beforehand warned international locations in opposition to lifting lockdowns too quickly in the course of the first wave of the virus: “The last thing any country needs is to open schools and businesses, only to be forced to close them again because of a resurgence”, stated Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.
