It is exceptionally important that countries like India show the way to the world as they have done before
World Health Organisation (WHO) Executive Director Michael J. Rayan has applauded India and said on Tuesday that India has a tremendous capacity to deal the coronavirus outbreak situation as it has experience of eradicating two pandemics – small-pox and polio.
“There is a need in the number of labs where a surge is seen. India is a very populous country and the future of this virus will be considered in a very highly and densely populated country. India led the world in eradicating two pandemics, small-pox and polio so India has a tremendous capacity,” J Ryan said during a daily press brief on coronavirus pandemic.
“There are no easy answers. It is exceptionally important that countries like India show the way to the world as they have done before,” he added.
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), the number of cases worldwide has surpassed 3,30,000, while the number of deaths has exceeded 14,000.
