COVID-19: WHO director says countries must ask important questions to determine readiness for virus

The World Health Organization’s director general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Thursday that countries outside of China must ask themselves several important questions to determine their readiness for handling the COVID-19 virus. He said questions include: whether an isolation unit is ready, if there is a reporting system set up, if health workers can stay safe and take samples correctly, if there are measures in place for testing people at airports and if populations will be on their governments’ side to fight the virus. Ghebreyesus said if the answer is “no” to any one of these questions, there is a “gap that this virus will exploit.”
