SARS-era WHO chief speaks out on coronavirus outbreak

February 12, 2020

cases of the corona virus continue to
stack up around the world especially in China’s we just heard and it doesn’t
look like this epidemic will end anytime soon unfortunately our Hong you sat down
with a former director-general of the World Health Organization who led the
agency during the SARS outbreak in the early 2000s to get her take on what the
world faces with this latest virus the novel coronavirus epidemic is very
similar to Sarris when it first appeared in China in 2002
that’s according to grow hollom brutal and who was the head of the World Health
Organization at that time SARS had also spread beyond borders to other Asian
countries such as Vietnam and then across the world killing one out of
every ten people and infected however the corona virus is showing a much lower
mortality rate at the present time the ease of spread is higher than in SARS
case but their mortality is far far lower but it had or has already spread
to about 25 countries so clearly it was correct that whu-oh declared a global
health emergency when the virus failed to be contained within the epicenter of
the outbreak the Chinese city of Wuhan countries across the world started
slamming shut their worst to foreign visitors who had been in the same
Brooklyn says it was the right action and a move that had to be taken you know
these things are always difficult because governments and authorities are
responsible for Public Health if they don’t take action they will be
criticized for not taking action when they take action somebody will feel they
are affected by something which is difficult for them so you know it’s easy
to criticize but it is maybe worse if you are criticized for not having taken
necessary precautions and necessary Public Health decisions to try to
and to avoid a spread of a new disease like this because a new virus like the
novel coronavirus does not yet have a vaccine or cure the best option is to
prevent more people from getting sick in the first place
avoiding spread from that person to health personnel but also to family
members and to other contacts because it’s it spreads very easily it is highly
infectious so by trying to contain and help the person and but contain and
avoid spread is really the major public health consideration asked how long she
expects this epidemic to last brutal insisting at how many countries that has
sprouted up in so far it’s likely to linger longer than SARS which lasts at
four and half months who knew Arirang news

    you can only say mortality rate is lower than SARS if you actually know what the mortality rate of nCorv is.
