Head of the mission of the World Health Organization, Caroline Brown, on Friday following her visit to Azerbaijan, said it was premature to make predictions on the timing of the decline of the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic in the world, as the Interfax-Ukraine reports.

A pandemic is the spread of a new disease on a global scale. That is, when a new virus appears and most people do not have the immunity against it, the disease spreads rapidly around the world.

"It is too early to make predictions about the decline of the pandemic around the world, in particular in Azerbaijan, as the work on the study of the virus is ongoing. But it is very important to achieve solidarity with all the peoples and countries in the world in the fight against coronavirus," Brown said.

According to her, within five days, WHO specialists examined hospitals in Baku and other regions of Azerbaijan, and meetings were held with representatives of various structures to prepare a Strategy to Combat Coronavirus.
