UN General Assembly President, Amb. Tijani Muhammad-Bande has said the coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency should not be politicized.

Tijani revealed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in New York recently.

According to him, the Coronavirus is not a political issue but a health matter and only those who are trained on public health can guide the citizens about it.

He added that the spread is a serious global challenge and all nations will keep doing their very best to contain the deadly disease.

His words, “This is not an issue of politics, but a technical issue concerning health matters, and let those who are trained on public health guide us about it.

β€œThe spread is a serious global challenge and every country is doing its very best because no country jokes about public health of this magnitude.

β€œThe most affected country is China, and the Chinese effort is commendable. Everybody has seen what measure they have undertaken.

β€œNobody should make a pronouncement about what is unfolding other than to say we should listen to the advice of the WHO (World Health Organisation).

β€œThere is great coordination between the WHO as a body and national governments or health institutions in tackling the challenge.”
