As several countries have begun setting out plans to lift restrictive measures that have been imposed to stem the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has warned against easing lockdowns too early.

In a virtual briefing, WHO spokesman Christian Lindmeier said that ‘‘One of the most important parts is not to let go of the measures too early in order not to have a fall back again,’’ adding that ‘‘It’s similar to being sick yourself if you get out of bed too early and get running too early you risk falling back and having complications.’’

Several countries have already announced plans to gradually start lifting some of their restrictions for curbing the spread of the COVID-19, after recording a drop in the rate of new virus infections.
