The director of the Pan American Health Organization had a message for government leaders as countries in the Americas continue to reopen or start their reopening phases."If you have the will to relax preventive measures, you must also have the courage to pull back if infections rise," Dr. Carissa Etienne said today during a PAHO briefing.
Etienne called on local and national governments to take a"phased approach that relies on robust surveillance, data and expanding testing and contact tracing capacity" and be ready"to adjust course quickly" if the infection rate starts rising again.
Giving a general view of the situation in the Americas, Etienne said the region"has reported more Covid-19 cases than any other." However, the PAHO director said that several countries and territories in the Caribbean have been able to curb transmission completely — examples of the need to look at regional and local scenarios as well as national trends when it comes to the pandemic.
Etienne also called on countries to remain vigilant about Covid-19, even if the number of new cases goes down."Complacency is our enemy in the fight against Covid-19," she said."Reopening is not merely suspending travel restrictions and stay-at-home orders. It requires implementing a set of public health measures to track new cases and sufficient capacity to detect and control new outbreaks."
She also said governments should"not abandon what works because of fatigue or political pressure.""This virus does not work that way. We need to double down on measures that save lives and to deploy them with more precision than ever before. We must let data, not passion, guide our actions," Etienne said.Read more: CNN Breaking News »
Forget about Impeachment. As Commander and Chief is there not a military code covering dereliction of duty. I’m sure there is a few ‘ I didn’t get the memo’ charges you could throw into the mix? People, I hope you understand the truth about why the Dems are adamant about removing the history of slavery. Because, it was the Dems that owned the slaves and the Republican that freed the slaves. No history no proof. Think people think!!!
Just drop out now We call what the GOP and Trump messaging have become “played out”. And yet crickets about the autonomous zones in NYC and Washington State. Apparently Covid19 only attacks conservative rally attendees. 上次奥巴马赢得大选是由于他擅长用网上投票（从那里获得大多数年轻人投票。他很会吸引票源—— 网上的年轻人投票，且投票量很大。值得川普和共和党学习和效仿。现在很多美国人躲在网上难得出去投票
He probably couldn't reschedule his golf game. CNN 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎 Trump is the tanning bed mutation of the Coronavirus........ It's about time idiot boy listened to his staff Why grow a conscience now realDonaldTrump? You’ve already been responsible for plenty of deaths and infections. Facemasks are the answer, a facemask would help him express himself.
No rally? Now nobody can listen to my made up stories. So mad. He is not worried about the lives of people but about the fact that no one will show up. When are you going to report on ProvoShooting? It will disappear like magic Not the virus. Just fear of another half empty venue and the energy of Kpop fans.
Hee why start now, he never gave a 💩 before about anyone. BLM didn’t “scrap” their riots and care enough about COVID which is why we really have all these “ alleged” inflated cases. Tell the truth CNN, not just your narrative He will be working on his newest coverup story with Putin. The traitor needs to resign.
Oh no, now he's gonna go sulking, the team don't want to be around him at this time, what, with all that's going on, somehow Putin managed to stick it to him, they probably in the old Kremlin having a good laugh with some drinks. Please go trump for real go Oh no. Whatever...will 'Alabama Man' do now? But he will go golfing again iam sure. BET ON IT!
But its all a hoax There (White House)not worried about the virus itself, but might be worried about having another poor turn out, because even those who support 45 don’t want to take the risks. Trumps tantrums are probably worse than having the coronavirus. What thre staff do to distract him instead?
What for? I thought it was a hoax 🙄 He’s so concerned that he’s going to Mt. Rushmore with thousands of people to watch fireworks with no masks required. No explanation Just call it a protest and it Will be fine
Twitch Temporarily Suspends Trump For 'Hateful Conduct,' While Reddit Bans Pro-Trump Forum'The_Donald' subreddit, notorious for its controversial yet popular posts, had over 790,000 subscribers as of Monday morning. Maybe American social media should ban you, for spewing Chinese propaganda? Saying it was just a 'pro-trump forum' is putting it lightly. Well we trying to get rid of racist assholes, need to start at the top.

Trump Campaign Cancels Alabama Rally Over COVID-19 ConcernsThe Trump campaign is ditching plans for a rally in Alabama amid coronavirus concerns. I thought the orange man wasn’t scared. So the virus isn’t fake news anymore? But he didn’t give two flying (you know what) when it came to Arizona.
Trump Denies Briefing On Russian Bounties Reportedly Placed on U.S. TroopsPresident Trump is denying a New York Times report that he was briefed on an alleged Russian effort to pay bounties to Taliban-linked militants to kill Western forces — including U.S. forces — in Afghanistan.

Trump retweets video of supporters chanting 'white power' at protesters, deletes after backlashWhite House asserts that President Trump 'did not hear the one statement made on the video” showing a man in a golf cart with Trump campaign gear shouting 'white power.' The tweet that the president shared has been removed from his feed. Maybe the president shouldn't tweet so much. Between tweeting, golfing and watching cable news he does not work. No wonder he 'didn't know' Russia was paying to have our soldiers killed. Oh Bs. I believe that this is must listen to sermon
