WHO warns of danger of early removal of restrictive measures

US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — The World Health Organization (WHO) does not have general recommendations for countries and regions regarding the mitigation of measures to slow the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, reports Reuters.

At the same time, WHO experts urged not to remove restrictive measures too early, the organization’s representative said.

“One of the most important parts is not to take the measures too early so that the pace of the fight against the virus does not slow down,” said Christian Lindmeier, WHO spokesman, at a virtual briefing.

“It’s like you’re sick yourself, if you get out of bed too early and run too early, you run the risk of getting sick again, and you will have complications,” he added.

It was previously reported that Austria was the first European country to announce plans to remove the restrictive measures that were introduced to curb the outbreak of coronavirus.

The authorities said they had overcome the crisis associated with coronavirus, although the country had recently expanded restrictive measures and introduced a mandatory requirement to wear face masks.

Austria introduced strict restrictive measures three weeks ago: schools, bars, restaurants, theaters, shops with non-essential goods, and other public places were closed in the country.
