Coronavirus: Lifting lockdowns could see virus 'reignite', WHO warns

The head of the World Health Organization (WHO) has warned against complacency in the fight against the coronavirus, saying the disease "will be with us for a long time".

Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus also warned of upward trends in Covid-19 cases in Africa, Eastern Europe, Central America and South America.

He said that lifting lockdowns could cause infections to "reignite".

Dr Tedros also defended the WHO's handling of the pandemic.

He said he believed the UN agency had warned the world of Covid-19 early enough.

"Looking back I think we declared the emergency at the right time and when the world had enough time to respond," he told a daily briefing in Geneva. The WHO declared Covid-19 a Public Health Emergency of International Concern on 30 January and said it had become a pandemic on 11 March.

What did the WHO say?

Addressing the news briefing, Dr Tedros said that while most of the epidemics in Western Europe appeared to be stable or in decline, for many countries the disease was just getting started.

"And some (countries) that were affected early in the pandemic are now starting to see a resurgence in cases," he said.

"Make no mistake - we have a long way to go. This virus will be with us for a long time."

He added: "There is no question that stay-at-home orders and other physical distancing measures have successfully suppressed transmission in many countries. But this virus remains extremely dangerous.

"Early evidence suggests most of the world's population remains susceptible. That means epidemics can easily reignite.

"One of the greatest dangers we face now is complacency."

MONDAY 27TH APRIL: The Day Nigeria Will Rise Or Fall. Civil War Loading


lagos, ogun and Abuja middleclass and the poor are vehemently waiting for a day that will determine the fate of a nation as the two category of the aforementioned can not survive more than one month of HUNGER for a disease brought into the nation by the elite.

The biggest mistake mr president will ever make is to extend the lockdown and watch the country burn! its revolution people prepare for WAR!

Its apparent nigeria can not distribute palliatives to even 1% of her Citizens of 200million. The best decision is to open the economy and adopt other mechanisms to contain the spread.

That's the truth, even in China where the disease broke out since December, they are still living with it.

Indefinite Lockdown is not the solution, with all the lockdown in USA, what s the result, I am sure if Trump has not ordered lockdown, people would have said, the high death is because their is no lockdown.


Lockdown is not sustainable, let everyone use face mask and let their be mass testing

The way WHO handled the matter under this present regime is the worst so far, starting from the naming of the virus, going by presence, such pandemics are named after the town or area it was discovered, for example, the Asian flu of 1956, hong kong flu, 1968, Spanish virus, Eboka named after river Ebola in Congo, even Lassa fever here was named after Lassa town in Borno state. Why this corona not named Wuhan virus? It simply shows the double standard and politics of WHO. They have not be sincere since day one. They were covering this because they were covering China, they sabotaged use of hydroxyl chloroquine as a possible treatment because the world powers lobbied them because they want to use this opportunity to bring in their vaccine to achieve the new world order. They connived with India not to supply chloroquine to USA. Now they are saying it will be with us for a long time.

Anyway that's not for us in Nigeria. We reject it in Jesus name. We will not take your vaccine and we will be OK. We are rugged and we will use our herbs it will leave Nigeria the way it came. I just wish we have a sensible government.

Well it's true that this virus will be around for a while.

```This is what I think about the current situation

Two main pandemics at the moment we are fighting......

1. Coronavirus
2. Hunger virus.

Two main group of people at the moment fighting the the pandemics......

1. The Rich and
2. The poor.

The the global irony and the African outlook......

The rich is afraid of the virus.

The poor is afraid of hunger.

The rich wants the poor to stay home to avoid the spread, but hunger won't allow the poor to stay home.

The poor fears that if they stay home, the hunger virus will kill them.

The rich fears that if they also come out of their homes the coronavirus will kill them.......

What a delicate situation we have .........

Opinion:
In other to restore the world or Nigeria to it's normal social equilibrium.

The rich should assist the poor with food, so that they can stay at home.

When the rich succeeds in keeping the poor at home by providing enough food.

The spread of the coronavirus which the rich fears the most will be chased out!

This is common sense.....Yet because some people have the microphones, all you hear is ...... “stay at home”.......... “stay at home” .

How can they stay at home when the hunger virus is at home.

fight coronavirus
fight Hunger```

As scary as this sounds, its just the bitter truth. The earlier we recognize this and devise mechanisms that will allow the simultaneous running of things and the containment of the pandemic, the better we are braced up, well positioned to survive the approaching turbulences, as predicted by various technocratic institutions.

For a start, government could expend part of the facility it hopes to get from the World Bank on setting up massive response infrastructures for testing tracing and treatment and heavy procurements of PPEs, with public legislations mandating the use thereof. The other potion of the facility should go into stimulating the inwardly generative industries, other than energy sectors, because we can't afford capital flights in periods like this.

Now is the time when the political ingenuity and strategic problem solving skills of our mediocre political leadership will surely be put to test.

Same way TB, measles and other past deadly diseases have been. The only thing that can give one peace of mind is if a working vaccine exist

"Make no mistake, we have a long way to go. This virus will be with us for a long time," WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said during a press conference at the agency's headquarters in Geneva.

Religionist: Back to sender!! Holy ghost fire fire fire!!! Whose report will you believe?

Me: My people perish for lack of knowledge.
America was able to eradicate malaria by fumigating the entire country to kill mosquitoes.

Your country Nigeria is still batting with malaria. "Back to sender" will not eradicate malaria. Why do you think "back to sense" would eradicate covid-19?

Seems most folks are allergic to the truth, no wonder they can be easily be manipulated to believe that 5G causes covid-19 and vaccine is the mark of the beast.
