- The World Health Organisation, WHO, has cautioned countries on the reopening of schools, amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Dr Michael Ryan, a senior WHO official said reopening of schools should be based on data-driven COVID-19 public health strategies and not just political.
The Executive Director of the WHO Health Emergencies Programme stated this at a briefing in Geneva, Switzerland, NAN reports.
Ryan said: “We can’t play Whack-a-mole. We need to be able to walk and chew gum at the same time”.
He lamented that the issue of school reopening had become a “political football.”
According to Ryan, such was not fair on children.
“Decisions must be made on data, and an understanding of the risks.
“There needs to be a sustained commitment on suppressing the virus. If we can suppress it, then, schools can open safely.”
