WHO warns against lifting corona restrictions

The World Health Organization (WHO) on Friday called for caution in lifting restrictions to limit the spread of the new Corona virus.

The organization’s director-general, Tadros Adhanum Gebresos, said at a news conference that the organization would like to see the restrictions loosened, but at the same time, “lifting the restrictions could lead to a lethal return” to the virus.

He added that there is a “slowdown” in the spread of the epidemic in some European countries, especially Italy, Germany, Spain, and France, but there is a “worrying acceleration” in the spread in other countries, and that includes community infection in 16 African countries.
