Ghebreyesus’ update also makes mockery of government advice for suspected sufferers to self-isolate for 7 days
World Health Organisation (WHO) director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus issued an update today that that included a withering condemnation of the scandal of Boris Johnson’s insane approach to the coronavirus pandemic.
Ghebreyesus informed the world of the scale of the crisis outside China – and then emphasised the absolute necessity of using all measures to fight the virus at the same time – and that partial measures cannot succeed.
And he had a searing message for Johnson’s decision not to offer testing in every suspected case of infection:
You cannot fight a fire blindfolded – and we cannot stop this pandemic if we do not know who is infected.
And Ghebreyesus also made a mockery of the government’s current advice that people who think they may be infected should self-isolate for just a week, pointing out that people with the virus can infect others for up to two weeks after symptoms stop.
In response, Johnson has now announced that people should stop going to pubs and theatres – measures he said people might find too extreme.
But he still isn’t closing schools – and his lunatic refusal to deny testing to all who might be infected is blindfolding the UK while the virus spreads near-unchecked, which will massively increase the death toll.
The inadequacy of their approach is clear to the world. Johnson, Hancock and others must be held accountable for the deaths their wilful recklessness is going to cause.
