Closing of the virtual #WHA73 with @DrTedros. #COVID19…
We know that this #COVID19 pandemic brings serious social-economic effects because to face up to its exponential growth, we had to take draconian measures.

-#Colombia🇨🇴 President @IvanDuque at #WHA73

If we are sufficiently disciplined, work together sufficiently joined, we will be able to face this with success.
That is what we tried to do in #Colombia. We have taken difficult, drastic decisions. This has helped us.
-🇨🇴 President @IvanDuque at #WHA73
I believe that WHO is called on to ensure that all of us make efforts so we don’t think as individuals but as a major collective: to develop a vaccine, find treatments, work aligned with science.

-#Colombia🇨🇴 President @IvanDuque at #WHA73
Protecting health is a fundamental right for all & working together with all govts will make the difference.
I call on WHO & all Member States to face this #COVID19 with a better sense of intl cooperation

-#Colombia🇨🇴 President @IvanDuque at #WHA73

"I thank Member States for adopting the #COVID19 resolution, which calls for an independent and comprehensive evaluation of the international response – including, but not limited to, WHO’s performance"-@DrTedros #WHA73

"WHO’s focus now is fighting the #COVID19 pandemic with every tool at our disposal.

Our focus is on saving lives"-@DrTedros #WHA73

We’ll continue providing the 🌍 with epidemiological information and analysis"-@DrTedros #WHA73

"#COVID19 has robbed us of people we love;

It’s robbed us of lives and livelihoods;

It’s shaken the foundations of our world;

It threatens to tear at the fabric of international cooperation"-@DrTedros #WHA73
"But #COVID19 has also reminded us that for all our differences, we are one human race, and we are stronger together"-@DrTedros #WHA73
"We may speak different languages, but we share the same DNA.

We may adhere to different faiths, but we share the same aspirations for a peaceful and harmonious world;

We may have different cultures and traditions, but we share the same planet"-@DrTedros #COVID19 #WHA73
"For everything #COVID19 has taken from us, it has also given us something:

A reminder of what really matters;

And the opportunity to forge a common future"-@DrTedros #WHA73
"Dark & difficult days may lie ahead.

But guided by science, together we will overcome.

Let hope be the antidote to fear.

Let solidarity be the antidote to division.

Let our shared humanity be the antidote to our shared threat.

Now, more than ever"-@DrTedros

I would like to express my recognition, my gratitude, my admiration to the ordinary citizens of our countries, the emergencies services, the health workers and to all the unnamed people who helped others.

-#Paraguay🇵🇾 President @MaritoAbdo at #WHA73
All of us are equal. The #coronavirus certainly thinks we are all equal. It also taught us that all of us can do something to help others to find a solution to the problems we now face.

-#Paraguay🇵🇾 President @MaritoAbdo at #WHA73

This #COVID19 pandemic has also put us at a crossroads where leaders have to determine which road to take – the road to promote health, or the road to protect the economy. We have to do both.

-#Paraguay🇵🇾 President @MaritoAbdo at #WHA73

We are living in extraordinary times. But as much as there are challenges, we are inspired by incredible stories of the kindness and bravery of health care workers across the globe.

-#Bhutan🇧🇹 Prime Minister Lotay Tshering at #WHA73

For #Bhutan, we always believe that a nation can only grow on the strong foundation of a good healthcare system.
For decades, our kings have always ensured free & quality healthcare for all the Bhutanese.

-🇧🇹 Prime Minister Lotay Tshering at #WHA73

In times like this #COVID19 pandemic, we are once again asked to reflect on the efforts and importance we have placed on public healthcare systems, mainly the universal healthcare system for all.

-🇧🇹 Prime Minister Lotay Tshering at #WHA73

The healthcare system of a nation determines that of an entire globe. This is where I see WHO taking a strong lead in redefining our efforts to global healthcare systems.

-🇧🇹 Prime Minister Lotay Tshering at #WHA73

We have always emphasized the importance of free and quality health care for all and now His Majesty the King is personally spearheading the combat against #COVID19 in #Bhutan.

-🇧🇹 @PMBhutan Lotay Tshering at #WHA73

I would like to urge participants to discuss measures to ensure that more vulnerable countries continue to have access to diagnostic tools, PPE, drugs & a vaccine when it actually becomes available.

-🇧🇹 @PMBhutan Lotay Tshering #WHA73

As we put all our resources and energy behind #COVID19, let us also remind ourselves not to compromise on the routine health services like non-communicable diseases, vaccination services

-🇧🇹 @PMBhutan Lotay Tshering #WHA73

This health crisis has already put an immense burden on our economy and if you are not mindful and strategic it could create social disruptions. Let us all work together to avert social crises.

-🇧🇹 @PMBhutan Lotay Tshering #WHA73

I support the WHO and @DrTedros so that they lead and build on these lessons learned. So that they can help us to better prepare for future challenges

-#Spain🇪🇸 Prime Minister @sanchezcastejon at #WHA73

For #Spain, #HealthForAll is the key stone for having effective, resilient and quality health care systems which respond to health emergencies and also for the permanent protection of health.

-🇪🇸 Prime Minister @sanchezcastejon at #WHA73
#Spain trusts that the WHO will continue to play its leadership role. We are convinced that if we work together we will be able to emerge stronger from this #COVID19 crisis.

-🇪🇸 Prime Minister @sanchezcastejon at #WHA73

We are living in an unprecedented global crisis. A crisis that knows no borders or regions. We can only overcome it together through solidarity, cooperation and mutual accountability.
-#Italy🇮🇹 Prime Minister @GiuseppeConteIT #WHA73

#Italy has promoted the strengthening of global leadership & intl solidarity to manage the emergency, accelerate long-term sustainable solutions guided by science, research & medicine.

-🇮🇹 Prime Minister @GiuseppeConteIT #WHA73

We were not entirely prepared for such a huge global crisis. We have to strengthen early warning mechanisms, exchange of information, identification of best practice to improve the intl community pandemic preparedness.

-🇮🇹 PM @GiuseppeConteIT #WHA73

Together with WHO & others, we have launched the ACT-Accelerator, a global platform to speed up vaccine, therapeutic & diagnostic tools & ensure universal & equitable access to life-saving treatment.

-🇮🇹 PM @GiuseppeConteIT #WHA73
As a country committed to effective multilateralism #Italy believes that we should finance our global health architecture including by strengthening the role of WHO.

-🇮🇹 Prime Minister @GiuseppeConteIT #WHA73

We just commemorated the 40th anniv. of smallpox eradication to which #WHO's contribution was decisive.
We commend the Organization’s long-standing work to safeguard people’s health, often under very difficult circumstances.

-🇮🇹 PM @GiuseppeConteIT #WHA73
Be reassured that #Italy will take the opportunity to promote the common goals of global health high in the agenda of its upcoming presidency of the G20 in 2021.

-🇮🇹 PM @GiuseppeConteIT #WHA73

I would like to take this opportunity to salute health workers around the world who are working tirelessly to treat and protect us from this #coronavirus

-#Tuvalu🇹🇻 Prime Minister, Kausea Natano at #WHA73
