U.N ADVISES NATIONS ON MEASURES FOR LOCKDOWN RESTRICTION

Written by on April 28, 2020

AS SOME COUNTRIES BEGIN TO EASE THEIR LOCKDOWN RESTRICTIONS, GOVERNMENTS AND EMPLOYERS MUST PREPARE WORKPLACES AND ENSURE PEOPLE CAN RETURN SAFELY TO PREVENT A RESURGENCE OF COVID-19.

THE UNITED NATION, U.N MADE THIS KNOWN IN A STATEMENT TODAY.

IN A NEW STUDY, THE INTERNATIONAL LABOUR ORGANIZATION STRESSED THE IMPORTANCE OF ENSURING THAT WORKPLACES MEET STRICT OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH CRITERIA BEFORE ALLOWING PEOPLE TO RETURN TO THEIR JOBS, IN ORDER TO MINIMIZE THEIR EXPOSURE TO THE NOVEL CORONAVIRUS.

ACCORDING TO REPORTS, THE PANDEMIC WHICH HAS KILLED MORE THAN 200 THOUSAND PEOPLE WORLDWIDE AND INFECTED NEARLY THREE MILLION, HAS TAKEN A DEVASTATING TOLL ON ECONOMIES AND BUSINESSES AROUND THE GLOBE.

U.N ALSO ADVISED THAT PEOPLE SHOULD ADOPT RISK CONTROL MEASURES ADAPTED TO EACH SECTOR AND EACH WORKPLACE, INCLUDING REDUCING PHYSICAL INTERACTIONS BETWEEN WORKERS, CONTRACTORS, CUSTOMERS AND VISITORS, IMPROVING VENTILATION, REGULARLY CLEANING SURFACES, AND PROVIDING PROTECTIVE GEAR LIKE MASKS TO ANY WORKERS WHO NEED IT.
