World Health Organization Recommends Ease Lockdowns in Phases

The World Health Organization is advising to all nations that ease coronavirus related restrictions to allow some time to pass earlier than easing them further. In its newest strategy update, the World Health Organization says nations need a complete plan that weighs both the health risks and the socio-economic advantages of lifting restrictions prior to doing so.

It also said such measures should be implemented in a phased stepwise manner and must be flexible enough to quickly react to any changes in the community spread.

The World Health Organization recommends a two-week minimum between each transitional phase to allow enough time to study the effects of those changes as well as to minimize the risk that the virus could research. In recent days President Donald Trump has repeatedly said he wants to reopen the United State even going so far as assembling a new Economic Council dedicated to the effort.

Lockdowns are lightening around the world as some counties ease restrictions. Dozens of businesses have reopened in Italy, including bookshops, clothing stores, and stationers. Life is returning to a once-deserted Wuhan city in China with people heading out to buying areas and busy roads.

Spain saw non-essential employees returning to work as tough measures eased after two weeks of confinement. Austrians went shopping as restrictions loosened after an early lockdowns saw people spend four weeks inside. Denmark reopened daycare centers and schools but students still sat at least 6ft apart.
