Coronavirus: No Shortcuts And People Must Get Used To A New Way Of Living, Warns WHO's Chief Scientist


WASHINGTON - It is critically important for governments to present facts in a way that people really understand what the Covid-19 coronavirus is, and the logic behind some of the measures put in place, says Dr Soumya Swaminathan, chief scientist at the World Health Organisation (WHO).

When countries open up, their basic principle must be to test people with symptoms, identify the contacts and quarantine them until they are free of the risk of getting the disease, she said in an interview.
