'Chronic' global shortage of virus protective gear: WHO

Mar 28, 2020 20:34 IST

The lack of protective gear for health workers battling the COVID-19 pandemic is one of the most pressing threats in the fight to prevent deaths, the World Health Organization warned on Friday. WHO chief Tedros Adhanom shared that the global health body has shipped almost two million individual items of personal protective equipment to 74 countries and was preparing to send a similar amount to a further 60 countries. He urged the G20 countries to use their "industrial might and innovation" to produce and distribute the tools needed to save more lives.
