L’Oms: la pandemia si vince solo uniti

Dopo l’annuncio, qualche giorno fa, del presidente statunitense Donald Trump di voler uscire dall’Oms, perché sarebbe troppo influenzata dalla Cina, arriva la risposta – seppur indiretta – dei vertici dell’organizzazione mondiale della sanità. Per il direttore generale Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, infatti, «L’unico modo per combattere il coronavirus è restare uniti. L’unica via da seguire è quella dell’unità» in quanto «il virus prospera nelle divisioni, ma viene ostacolato quando siamo uniti». La minaccia più grande, ha sottolineato il direttore dell’Oms, è «la mancanza di amicizia e solidarietà a livello globale e nazionale. Non possiamo sconfiggere questa pandemia in un mondo diviso».
