WHO Praises Pakistan’s Handling of Covid-19 Pandemic

ISLAMABAD – The World Health Organization (WHO) has said that the international community should learn to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic front Pakistan.
Former Special Assistant to the Pakistani Prime Minister (SAPM) on health, Dr. Zafar Mirza, told Dawn it was recognition of Pakistan’s efforts at the international level.
WHO’s Director-General, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said during a press briefing that Pakistan had deployed infrastructure built for many years for polio to fighting COVID-19.
“Community health workers who have been trained to go door to door to immunize children against polio have been used for surveillance, contact tracing and care,” he said.
“There are many other examples, including Cambodia, Japan, New Zealand, Republic of Korea, Rwanda, Senegal, Spain and Vietnam. Many of these countries have done well because they have learned from previous outbreaks of SARS, MERS, measles, polio, Ebola, influenza and other diseases. This is why we all must learn the lessons that this pandemic is teaching us,” he said.
Dr Mirza said in a tweet: “Pakistan has been included among seven countries by the Director-General of WHO – countries from which the world can learn to fight future pandemics. A great honour for the Pakistani people Alhamdulillah.”
Speaking to Dawn, Dr Mirza said it was recognition of the national effort at the international level.
“It shows that if we want to do something, we can do it—besides, the DG of WHO spoke about the importance of the public health system. There is talk of “building back better (BBB)”, and I think it’s time to rebuild,” he said.
BBB is an approach to disaster recovery that reduces vulnerability to future disasters and builds the resilience of communities to cope with physical, social, environmental and economic threats and shocks.
