The World Health Organization has identified six criteria for countries looking to slowly lift coronavirus lockdown measures, warning the way down from the peak of the outbreak is “much slower” than the way up. He went onto outline a checklist that the United Nations health agency had devised for countries considering whether to lift some lockdown measures. First, transmission of the coronavirus must be controlled. Second, that health system capacities are in place to detect, test, isolate and treat every case and every contact. Third, that outbreak risks are minimized in special settings like health facilities and nursing homes. Fourth, that preventive measures are in place in workplaces, schools and other essential places. Fifth, that importation risks can be managed. And sixth, that communities are fully educated, engaged and empowered to adjust to the “new norm.”
