While some nations are beginning to lift some of the measures they imposed in order to curb the spread of the coronavirus, UN’s health body warned against being too hasty, saying it may result in resurgence of the epidemic.

“It’s similar to being sick yourself if you get out of bed too early and get running too early you risk falling back and having complications,” a spokesman for the World Health Organization (WHO) said in a briefing.

Christian Lindmeier added the organization had no blanket recommendations to nations on how and when to lift pandemic lockdowns, but called on the governments to stay on the cautious side.
