The World Health Organization (WHO) special envoy on COVID-19 is now raising questions about lockdowns as an effective way to fight the spread of coronavirus. Dr David Nabarro said, “We in the World Health Organization do not advocate lockdowns as the primary means of control of this virus.” His statement has raised some eyebrows as it now appears WHO has backfipped on it’s advice months after the pandemic was declared.
