“When we get information in WHO we get information in numbers; this many people died or this many people have been infected. We don’t see the figures, we don’t see the numbers. We see the individuals behind the numbers” said WHO Director-General Dr Tedros at the COVID-19 daily press briefing on 20 April 2020.
“We need national unity, strong national unity, everybody fighting this virus, taking care of their citizens, taking care of real people. We need global solidarity that’s cemented on genuine national unity. Without the two, without national unity and global solidarity, trust us, the worst is yet ahead of us,” he concluded.
