Coronavirus: WHO Cautions against'immunity passports' for Regained patients

He said that as cases decline in Europe, countries must ensure they trace, isolate and properly treat patients.

At a press conference in Geneva, Switzerland Monday, Director General, Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus had this to tell all nations.

However, China has reported 6 new coronavirus cases, 3 domestic and 3 from overseas, and no deaths, according to the country's National Health Commission, reports The Guardian.

Health officials are concerned about increasing trends in places like Africa, Eastern Europe, Latin America and some Asian countries.

The WHO has faced mounting criticism in recent weeks, especially from previous top donor, the United States.

After the new virus emerged in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December and began to spread overseas, Tedros said the World Health Organization declared the COVID-19 outbreak "the highest level of global emergency" on January 30.

Last week, the World Health Organization had said that the coronavirus continues to be extremely unsafe and will remain for a long time.

"There's now no evidence that those who've recovered from COVID-19 are then resistant to this disease, the World Health Organisation (WHO) anxious on Saturday, warning against using so-called" immunity passports".

He noted that cases were largely underreported due to low testing capacity in many of these countries.

"You can check for yourselves: countries who followed that are in a better position than others. This virus will be with us for a long time", Ghebreyesus had said during a daily briefing on coronavirus.
