世衞組織:世界面臨疫情防控的第二個窗口期

19

3月25日,世界衞生組織在瑞士日內瓦召開記者會,世衞組織總幹事譚德塞在記者會上表示,當前世界正面臨控制新冠肺炎疫情的第二個窗口期,要採取更加精準的措施,識別、治療確診病例,切斷病毒傳播鏈條。

譚德塞說,為了遏制疫情蔓延,很多國家關閉學校、暫停商業活動和體育賽事、限制人員流動,採取了前所未有的防控措施,付出了非常大的社會、經濟代價,為疫情防控爭取了時間,這是疫情防控的又一個窗口期。接下來應該採取更加精準的措施,採取有力行動,追蹤、檢測、發現、隔離、治療感染者,這是迅速遏制疫情,恢複正常秩序的最好方法。

To slow the spread of COVID-19, many countries introduced "lockdown" measures. But on their own, these measures will not extinguish epidemics. We call on all countries to use this time to attack the coronavirus. You've created a second window of opportunity.Aggressive measures to find, isolate, test, treat and trace are not only the best and fastest way out of extreme social and economic restrictions – but also to prevent them. This is especially relevant for many countries with vulnerable health systems. Although we're especially concerned about vulnerable countries, all countries have vulnerable populations, including older people. They carry the collective wisdom of our societies and we need to work together to protect them from the coronavirus and to ensure their needs are being met.
