President Trump on Monday celebrated recent remarks by a World Health Organization leader that indefinite blockades of COVID-19 were bad.
“The World Health Organization, did you see what happened? They came out a while ago and admitted that Donald Trump was right, “Trump said during a large rally in Sanford, Florida – his first since recovering from the coronavirus.
“The locks do great damage to those democrat-ruled countries where they are locked up, sealed. Percentage of suicides, drug addiction, alcoholism, death from so many different forms. You can’t do that, “Trump said.
Trump hits Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden to say in August, he will try to reintroduce strict restrictions if scientists advise.
“Biden will end our recovery, slow down the vaccine, prolong the pandemic and destroy the Florida economy with draconian, unscientific locking ̵
“And you know what?” If you don’t feel good going out, stay, relax, stay. You know the risk groups, you know the elderly. “
WHO envoy Dr David Nabaro said this week in a video interview with Spectator magazine that restrictive exclusion measures should only be used as a last resort.
“We at the World Health Organization do not recommend blocking as the primary means of controlling this virus,” Nabaro said.
“The only time we think blocking is justified is to save you time to reorganize, regroup, balance your resources, protect your healthcare workers who are exhausted, but generally prefer not to do so.”
Nabaro said the strict restrictions are causing significant damage, especially to the world economy.
“Lockdowns have only one consequence, which you should never, ever underestimate, and that makes poor people terribly much poorer,” he said.
He added that the blockades have severely affected countries that rely on tourism.
“Just look at what has happened to the tourism industry in the Caribbean, for example, or in the Pacific, because people are not resting,” Nabaro told the store.
“Look at what has happened to small farmers around the world. See what happens to poverty levels. It seems that we may have a doubling of world poverty by next year. It is possible to at least double the malnutrition of children. “
