Michael Ryan, who heads the WHO's Health Emergencies Program, urged world governments to take further tyrannical measures in combating the coronavirus.
Ryan wants governments to do things such as identifying people with the virus and quarantining them, forcibly if necessary. Forced quarantine with a gun to your head.
"The danger right now with the lockdowns... if we don't put in place the strong public health measures now, when those movement restrictions and lockdowns are lifted, the danger is the disease will jump back up," Ryan said.
"Once we've suppressed the transmission, we have to go after the virus. We have to take the fight to the virus."
Yet other experts, such as Johns Hopkins senior scholar Dr. Amesh Adalja says the coronavirus is here to stay, and it will now be a part of our seasonal illnesses such as the flu and the common cold. Because of that, we should work hard to treat it and save the lives of those who do get sick, much like we do with the flu.
Meanwhile, President Donald Trump does not want the solution to this pandemic to be worse the crisis itself.
