The director general of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, has asked for the year 2021 to be “less” politicized with health, after the management that has been made of the coronavirus pandemic.
In a press conference, Tedros recalled that there is currently a “race” to save lives, so he stressed the importance of countries acting “quickly” to stop infections and to avoid regretting more deaths.
“It is important to save lives and protect health professionals. This pandemic is tiring but it is much worse for those who work in medical services or for those patients who are suffering from Covid-19 or who have to postpone their cancer treatment.” , has detailed the leader of the WHO.
Thus, Tedros has once again asked citizens to quarantine themselves on suspicion of suffering from Covid-19 and governments to facilitate the possibility of being able to isolate themselves properly. “The chains of transmission have to be broken and for that it is necessary to identify and find those infected and give them the care they need,” he emphasized.
