Stop The Blames And Tantrums, This Is Time For Action Says Nnenna

It is no longer news that the Corona Virus pandemic started in Wuhan, China. In the same way, it is certain that the virus is contracted via human to human.

That the World Health Organization (WHO) was wanting in handling the pandemic is a big concern. At the onset of the Corona Virus pandemic in Wuhan China only, WHO claimed it was not a human to human transmitted disease is a disastrous error which has led to the loss of thousands of lives, many infected and yet many more seemingly going to be infected by the pandemic. Nations economies are affected, sports are affected worldwide, social lives are affected, businesses are being destroyed and people are stranded all over the world. Fears and doubts about the ability of the Health Sector to handle and deal with the crisis is a concern.

Things wouldn’t have gotten to this stage if WHO performed its duty well. The organization was quick in finding a name for the disease than in identifying the mode of transmission. Doubts about their role in concealing the magnitude of the harm, the causes made people have doubts about their ability, transparency, and sincerity of the organization.
