The World Health Organization has completed the second mission in Turkmenistan since the start of the COVID-19 epidemic. This was reported on the website of the local UN office.
Dorit Nitzan, WHO Regional Director for Emergencies in Europe, who led the delegation, said: “The mission stressed the need to intensify efforts to detect COVID-19. Timely reporting of cases is a must, as it allows for additional response tools: contact tracing; quarantine; ensuring adequate care and proper case management; adaptation of measures to the epidemiological situation; observation and testing. They all require community involvement and are based on transparency. “
Thus, the WHO, in fact, in plain text urged the authorities of Turkmenistan to stop hiding the existence of the epidemic and disclose information about the infected. This is presented under the guise of assistance in detecting an infection, which the Turkmen specialists allegedly fail. “The mission explored how the genetic sequencing capabilities of viruses can be tuned to help detect COVID-19,” the UN website said.
