World Health Organization Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus recently informed the world that “there will be no return to the old normal,” and that COVID-19 may never disappear, which means every human should live in a perpetual state of fear, as if every decision is a “life and death” decision.
“I want to be straight with you: There will be no return to the old normal for the foreseeable future,” said Ghebreyesus. “I repeat: there will be no return to the old normal for the foreseeable future.”
He continued, “Let me be blunt, too many countries are headed in the wrong direction. The virus remains public enemy number one. But the actions of many governments and people do not reflect of this.”
“The only aim of the virus is to find people to infect. Mixed messages from leaders are undermining the most critical ingredient of any response: trust.”
Ghebreyesus claims that “if governments do not clearly communicate with their citizens” and create “a comprehensive strategy focused on suppressing transmissions,” and that if citizens of these governments do not then agree to social distance, wear masks, and stay home when sick, then “there is only one way this pandemic is going to go: It’s going to get worse and worse and worse.”
The Director General also demanded people treat every decision about leaving the house as a “life and death” decision.
“We’re asking everyone to treat the decisions about where they go, what they do, and who they meet with, as life and death decisions,” said Ghebreyesus. “It may not be your life, but your choices could be the difference between life and death for someone you love, or for a complete stranger.”Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
