WHO warns from return to ‘old normal life’

WHO picks research of Saudi students for coronavirus protocols

The World Health Organization warned there is no going back to the “old normal.”

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said during a news conference from the agency’s Geneva headquarters, “It’s completely understandable that people want to get on with their lives, but we will not be going back to the old normal.”

Tedros urged world leaders and the public to make these “good choices,” adding the decisions could be the “difference between life and death for someone you love.” As long as the virus is circulating, everyone is at risk, he said. “Just because cases may be at a low level where you live, that doesn’t make it safe to lower your guard,” he said. “Don’t expect someone else to keep you safe. We all have a part to play in protecting ourselves and one another.”
