WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on a routine press conference on Covid-19 on Wednesday, “Mothers and newborns died in the attack, civilians and health workers should never be targeted.”
He said that the world needs health and peace now. Health requires peace and peace requires health. He urges all the parties to refrain from politics in the situation of a global epidemic and asked to prioritize peace. Dr. Tedros asked for a global ceasefire and working together to end this epidemic.
Dr. Michael J., Executive Director of the WHO Health Disaster Program. In response to a question, Ryan said the organization had information about 35 attacks on health workers and patients in 11 countries in April in the Covid-19 case.
He said.”These attacks are not planned military attacks like the ones in Afghanistan; the lack of information among them has caused outrage among the people. In many cases, people do this out of a lack of understanding or fear. In addition to health workers, there have been some incidents of attacks on COVID-19 patients. Some of the attacks were serious.”
