The World Health Organization is an institute of United Nations Organization and was founded on 7th April, 1948. It has its headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. The WHO is assigned with the responsibility of maintaining the required standards of highest possible level of health of people of the Globe, by UNO. From distributing the common facilities of normal health to the public to look after them in case of any pandemic, it all comes under the shade of responsibilities of the World Health Organization.

“Existence of asymptomatic natured Corona is very rare”, declared by the World health Organization on Tuesday while attempting to clear up the comments which were spread 24 hours ago. The World Health Organization stated clearly that carriers who don’t manifest any signs and symptoms of Corona are very rare.

Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove stated on Tuesday that a misunderstanding was developed due to her comments which were made on Monday during WHO news briefing. She further stated that she was not explaining and speaking about any policy of the World Health Organization or stuff like that rather she was just responding to a question in the form of declaring rare existence of asymptomatic Corona cases.

The comments made by the WHO on Monday, brought confusion and drew criticism for health professionals who warned about existence of asymptomatic corona. With a hope of limiting the spread of this contagious pandemic, states all around the world have broaden the horizon of precautionary measures through imposing the policies of wearing masks at any cost.  

The WHO has made it clear that further information is required to make any expansive statements about transmission of Corona asymptomatically. Current estimates display that 16% of people contain asymptomatic traits of corona and are able to transfer it to others while some other data reveal that 40% of the transmission of coronavirus is because of the carriers who do not show symptoms of this ailment.

Outbreak of COVID-19 emerged in Wuhan, China in December, 2019 and according to data gathered by Johns Hopkins University, till now it has affected more than 7.1 million population of the globe and claimed more than 400,000 lives world-wide.
