@richardursomd 1. Do listen to the whole interview rather than cut a clip out of context.

@WHO is not in favour of LONG NATIONAL ones, if there is an alternative but @davidnabarro says sometimes a lockdown is needed to win time and prepare testing/tracing processes.
@richardursomd @WHO @davidnabarro 2. @davidnabarro also says local movement restrictions are sometimes necessary, ie local light lockdowns like in NZ.
@WHO is not against local lockdowns, that is a part of the tailored, localised, specific approach together with testing/tracing and isolation. You need them all.
@richardursomd @WHO @davidnabarro 3. @davidnabarro says The Middle Path is needed:
Making certain we put in place robust defences to the virus so we can catch it QUICKLY & SUPPRESS outbreaks FAST. To do this, we need very good localised public health services, with excellent testing/tracing & isolation measures.
@richardursomd @WHO @davidnabarro 4.If your country can do the Middle Path well, clearly a lockdown isn't needed.
If not, the option may be adding local movement restrictions.If outbreak is too large, one may need to adopt the 'Lost control/win time/get prepared' full lockdown, ideally only for a shorter time.
@richardursomd @WHO @davidnabarro 5.@davidnabarro pleads to world leaders to stop using lockdowns as the PRIMARY control method, but develop BETTER systems instead, work together & learn from each other.

Essentially telling countries to work out better systems to deal with the outbreaks, but takes time to do so.
@richardursomd @WHO @davidnabarro 6. Lastly @davidnabarro also talks about the crucial fact people have a job to do also. Not only governments and PHA.
If people don't do their part, as I hear happening in Sweden, Scotland and other places, the virus will NOT GO AWAY.

This type of attitudes will not cut it:
@richardursomd @WHO @davidnabarro 4a. I'll add the Local Integrated Response @davidnabarro mention here too. This is preferred before any local lockdowns. That can include working with local organisations to quickly identify, locate and stop the spread. NZ did this directly with our biggest cluster, a church.

@OscarTengmark @DaytonaII Ok Oscar, kan se att du inte lärt dig att läsa på och att du slänger runt videoclips&påståenden utan kontext.Jag ska förklara för dig eftersom din hjärna inte verkar vara kapabel att fungera.
Detta trots att mitt hela lillfinger brutits av denna vecka,så välj dina svar noggrant.
@OscarTengmark @DaytonaII 1. Precis som du gjorde felet och erkände det i förra rundan, så kan man inte bara kolla på en del av en video utan helheten. Har du kollat på hela?
Dr Nabarro förespråkar The Middle Way, om man inte ska ha lockdowns, tycker du att Sverige har mastrat TMW?
@OscarTengmark @DaytonaII 2.The Middle Way: Make certain we put in place robust defences to this virus we can catch it QUICKLY & we can SUPPRESS outbreaks FAST. To do this, we need very good localised public health services, with excellent testing-tracing & isolation measures.

Låter detta som Sverige?
