Disregarding it as a mental disorder, WHO now recommends playing games.
With 210000 reported cases of coronavirus and 9000 lives lost, we are witnessing the greatest pandemic of this century. Almost the entire world is under lockdown while the panic and fear continue to grow among the public.
As hospitals try their best to help the patients while governments are establishing strict lockdown regulations to keep the virus contained and prevent further contamination. In this event of complete self-quarantine, World Health Organization has recommended measures to keep ourselves occupied at home.
WHO DG in his statement has recommended playing games to keep ourselves occupied during this period, which will definitely encourage parents to allow their kids to be on the computer for longer durations and keep their minds away from going out.
The statement also sheds light on the fact that they are working on communication channels with Facebook to prevent the spreading of fake news and provide the community with accurate information, which will clear the air about several false rumors spreading about the coronavirus.
