Geneva: The chief of World Health Organization (WHO) has said that all countries living with COVID-19 will be the new normal in the coming months.
The dreaded coronavirus has infected over 10 million people and claiming lives of over 5,00,000 others across the globe.
WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told reporters that the critical question is that the countries will face in the coming months is how to live with this virus. He said six months ago no one would have thought that life will be thrown into turmoil by this new virus.
The WHO chief has urged the countries to prioritise five sets of measures to save lives, including empowering communities and individuals to protect themselves and others, suppressing virus transmission, saving lives with oxygen and dexamethasone for instance, accelerating research on COVID-19 and strengthening political leadership and solidarity.
