  • WHO announced serious negative consequences that could be caused by a military parade on May 9 in Minsk. Batyr Berdyklychev, an official representative of the organization in Belarus, noted that a meeting of people at which it is impossible to keep the distance between the participants from 1.5 to 2 meters increases the risk of transmission of the virus and contributes to the further spread of the disease.
    According to the Swedish epidemiologist Johan Gizeke, only two measures have obvious advantages in the fight against coronavirus – hand washing and maintaining social distance. This was stated in an interview with RBC by the adviser to the Swedish government and the Secretary General of the World Health Organization Johan Gizeke. He believes that the benefits of other tough measures in the fight against the virus are not obvious.

  • Statements that coronavirus appeared in a laboratory in China are “speculative,” said Michael Ryan, head of the WHO health emergency program. He added that WHO would “readily” consider any information on the origin of coronavirus provided by the United States.
