WHO “THERE IS NO ZERO RISK IN INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL”
Informing the international public that more than 17 million cases worldwide are related to the corona virus, the World Health Organization made statements about travel bans and tourism. The World Health Organization, which continues its work within the United Nations, recalled that it is not recommended to loosen up international travel bans. In the guide published on the official website of WHO, there is a statement saying “There is no zero risk when considering the potential importation or exportation of cases in the context of international travel.”
In the statement made by the World Health Organization, the expression “Countries should regularly update their test, follow-up, isolation and case management processes and consider the risks”.
The statements made by WHO are not mandatory for government, industries and local governments, but they are a recommendation. The World Health Organization made a similar announcement in the northern hemisphere just before the start of the summer season.
In the past week, the World Health Organization said, “International travel bans cannot stay forever, countries should work to reduce corona virus cases on the borders.”
