WHO urges countries to ‘look very, very carefully’ at ski season plans

GENEVA — The World Health Organisation urged countries on Monday to consider carefully any plans for the coming ski season to manage the risks associated with people converging on small areas where the new coronavirus could be spread.

But the global health agency declined to offer a specific recommendation to governments wrestling with the question of whether to allow snow sports this winter.

“We would ask that all countries look at the ski season and other reasons for mass gatherings and look very, very carefully at the associated risks,” said Mike Ryan, the WHO’s top emergency expert. (Reporting by John Miller and Emma Farge; Writing by Hugh Lawson; Editing by Andrew Heavens)
