Countries underperforming in dealing with Covid-19 underestimated the importance of science, ignoring the potential effects of epidemics, irresponsibility such as promoting lateness and mistrust in widespread action. (Irresponsible) approach adopted. A committee of independent experts said this in their report on Wednesday.

In a report released in Geneva, the committee reviewing the World Health Organization’s steps to combat the Corona virus pandemic also said that due to the leadership’s failure to take responsibility or devise a coherent strategy to avoid community infections, Scientific evidence was sidelined.

Successful countries kept in touch with Wuhan

It has been said in the report that the leaders who viewed or rejected the emerging scientific evidence with skepticism lost the trust of the public. By March 2021, a committee reviewing the ways in which countries have dealt with the pandemic said that the countries already sensing the threat of SARS-Cove-2 faced it better than those who had spread. Kept waiting

The committee said that the soon-to-be-coming countries got time to take precautionary measures. At the same time, they continued to seek information from other countries, especially from Wuhan in China, where the effect of the lockdown suggested that by taking strict measures, the spread of the epidemic could be effectively prevented.

Committee reviewed in eight months

The report said that the current system of national and international level is insufficient to protect people from COVID-19. The committee included former Liberia President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and former New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clarke. In the last eight months, the committee reviewed deeply how this epidemic became a global epidemic and how it is being dealt with at the global and national level.

Clarke, the committee’s co-chair, said that our message is very simple and clear. The current system has failed to save the people from COVID-19 and if we have not yet made efforts to change it, then we cannot avoid the danger of the next pandemic, which may arise at any time. According to John Hopkins University, more than 159,784,600 people have been infected by the infection so far. Of these, more than 3,320,000 people have died.
