Testing, tracing must be 'backbone' of coronavirus response

Countries across the world must take a comprehensive approach to fighting the coronavirus pandemic and isolate, test and trace as many cases as possible, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Wednesday.

"To suppress and control the epidemic, countries must isolate, test, treat and trace," the WHO's Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a media briefing.

"If they don't, transmission chains can continue at a low level and then resurface once physical distancing measures are lifted," he added.
