WHO Urges Middle East to Use its Advantage in Pandemic Fight

The World Health Organization is urging the Middle East and North African governments to “seize the opportunity” to combat the coronavirus while numbers of cases in the region are still relatively low.

“We have to seize the opportunity to act in the region because the rise in cases was not so rapid,” Yvan Hutin, director of the communicable diseases department at WHO’s Eastern Mediterranean office in Cairo, told AFP in an interview.
