Asking people to stay at home & shutting down population movement is buying time & reducing the pressure on health systems. But on their own, these measures will not extinguish epidemics: Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of WHO
yeah. who has basically said that this would only work if the government is using this time to prepare for what happens in 2-3 weeks time. more beds. more medical supplies. more volunteers. use stadiums and similar large spaces and get them ready for massive outbreak in the coming days. damage has largely been done by forcing people to move from big cities to smaller towns and villages.
