Mike Ryan, director of the World Health Organization emergency program, said that the healthcare system has come to the point of collapse from poor equipment, and COVID-19 is not a bad flu season.
New announcements continue to come for the coronavirus, which continues to spread throughout the world, increasing its influence day by day. The World Health Organization, one of the most authoritative institutions, warned that coronavirus is not just a flu epidemic, in a statement Friday. Mike Ryan, general manager of the World Health Organization (WHO) emergency program, said the coronavirus has brought all health systems around the world to the point of collapse.
“Take a look at what’s happening in some healthcare systems around the world. Intensive care units are on the brink of collapse. Doctors and nurses are exhausted. ” “This is not a normal situation,” explains Ryan. “This is not just a bad flu season,” he said, adding that people should be taken more seriously.
The COVID-19 outbreak, which first started in Wuhan Province of China, had shifted its epicenter to Europe, according to WHO’s statement. Stating that more than 26 million healthcare workers are trying to treat people against the coronavirus, Ryan said that there is a shortage of protective equipment for these workers and that the health system is on the verge of collapse in the face of increasing number of cases.
Europe in General Quarantine
Many countries, especially in Europe, are taking social distance measures to slow the spread of the virus. The World, which has been trying to eliminate the COVID-19 outbreak by taking measures such as curfew, has not been able to achieve the results it has so far.
The health system, which is desperate especially about insufficient breathing devices, wants to produce new breathing devices in the fastest way. Many companies started to focus on productions such as face masks and respirators instead of their own production systems.
In the light of all these explanations, it seems that the new type of coronavirus will not come out of our lives very soon. The virus, which is likely to show its effect in the summer months, can cause the death of millions of people if it is not controlled.
