WHO official urges sick people to stay home.
Dr. Mike Ryan is the World Health Organization’s executive director of the Health Emergencies Programme, and he is urging all the sick people to stay at home if we want to stop the virus from taking even more lives.
Dr. Ryan agrees with the people who think lockdowns are too much at this point in the pandemic, and the world has completely changed, but according to him, staying at home as much as possible is still one of the best ways to protect ourselves and the people around us.
“If people who were sick stayed at home and were supported in doing that, and if their contacts stayed at home, and were supported in doing that, we could break the back of this disease,” Dr. Ryan said at a press conference.
Lockdowns have severe consequences on our societies and there is no doubt about it.
But, if all the sick people stay at home and quarantine according to the doctors’ advice, we have greater chances to stop the pandemic.
Other WHO officials also agree that we’ve had enough restrictions, but it is necessary to respect the measures until we are sure that the virus is under control.
