WHO: Effective prevention and control measures show signs of stabilization in Italy, Spain

The World Health Organization said on the 30th march,2020, that the epidemic situation in Italy and Spain has shown signs of stabilization recently, indicating that the prevention and control measures such as "social alienation" previously taken are effective, but new cases must be made The curve turned around and continued to increase the response.

  The head of the WHO health emergency project, Michael Ryan, said at a regular press conference that although both Italy and Spain have adopted measures to "catch the city," the effect will take some time on the new case curve. The current outbreak curve in the two countries should actually reflect the situation at least two weeks ago.

  Ryan said that thanks to the continued "cities closure" and other strict prevention and control measures, the curve of new cases in the two countries should now stabilize, and the WHO is eager to hope that the epidemic situation in both countries will stabilize. He said that through "social alienation" measures, the number of contacts per confirmed case has been significantly reduced, which means that the number of people at risk of infection has decreased significantly compared to two weeks ago. Coupled with continued detection and isolation of community cases, people are actually able to take action before the virus spreads further.

  But Ryan also emphasized that the key now is how to make the new case curve turn down. He believes that closing the city alone is not enough. We must redouble our efforts to promote public health measures to "suppress" the virus, because the virus will not retreat automatically.
