    (March 6, 2020) - - On March 6, 2020 the United Nations (UN) published the following information:



    In his daily briefing to the press on Friday, World Health Organization (WHO) chief, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, warned that supplies of medicine are at risk of disruption due to the epidemic, given that China - the worst hit nation so far - is a major producer of pharmaceutical ingredients. So far, no imminent specific shortages have been identified, and manufacturing has resumed in most parts of China, but the private sector needs to be involved, to ensure that countries can access life-saving products, said Tedros. “You’ve heard me talk about the market failure for personal protective equipment. We look forward to businesses stepping up to play their part. We need you”. The WHO chief anno

    Excellencies, dear colleagues and friends, Good morning and welcome once again to our weekly mission briefing on COVID-19. Before I get to COVID-19, a few words about Ebola, the other war-front. We have now had more than two weeks without a case of Ebola, and this is the longest period since the outbreak started, and there are currently no patients receiving treatment. We are now counting down to the end of the outbreak. If there are no more cases, we expect the Government of DRC to declare the outbreak over on the 12th of April. But of course, given the security situation, there could be surprises, but we don’t have any complacency and we will do everythi...

We have now had two weeks without a single reported case of Ebola, and there are currently no patients receiving treatment. This is very good news not just for me, but for the whole world – I remember how the whole world was worried about Ebola – and especially for the thousands of health workers who have sacrificed so much in the fight against Ebola, and for making sure we’re where we are. But as one epidemic looks like ending, one front of the fight closing, another is be...
