The World Health Organisation (WHO) has persuade nations to take immediate action in the fight against coronavirus.

The global  pandemic virus has affected 200 countries and has raised over 20,000 deaths in the world.

Director-General of the WHO, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, addresses the lockdown that virus has caused globally.

He explained that the time should be used to do more to curb the spread of the disease.

“We understand that countries are trying to assess when and how they will be able to ease these measures”, Ghebreyesus said.

“Asking people to stay at home and shutting down population movement is buying time and reducing the pressure on health systems, but on their own, these measures will not extinguish the epidemics.”

He explained further that the point of these actions is to enable the more precise and targeted measures that are needed to curb transmission and save lives.

“We call on all countries that have introduced so-called “lockdown” measures to use this time to attack the virus. You have created a second window of opportunity. The question is: how will you use it?”

The WHO DG counsel all country to right away extend, train, and arrange health care and public health workforce;

Implement a system to find every suspected case at the community level;

Ramp up production capacity and availability of testing;

Identify, adapt, and equip facilities you will use to treat patients;

Develop a clear plan and process to quarantine contacts;

Refocus the whole of government on suppressing and controlling COVID-19.

Ghebreyesus stressed that these measures are the best way to suppress and stop transmission so that when restrictions are lifted, the virus doesn’t resurge.

Meanwhile Sega said Globally, world leaders have been fortifying their country against missile attacks, while some were preparing for nuclear warfare but the 21st century nudged us into the reality of biological warfare even beyond the ideals of Genome soldiers. Microbes. Nigeria is not even on the map!

Do you see why you can't keep hailing or worshipping rulers void of NAFDAC numbers in the 21st century, whose idea of leadership is dependent on foreign aids & unmerited loans they can neither put to progressive use nor account for? Coronavirus is only revealing the gaps. 
Nigeria has recorded 51 case of coronavirus.
