WHO tells Countries They Can End Lockdowns in Certain Areas -- Same Group that Misled Global Community on COVID-19 Numbers

The WHO announced on Friday that countries should plan to end lockdowns in certain areas provided they have adequate COVID-19 testing.
The global community shut down their economies after the World Health Organization (WHO) warned that the coronavirus had a 3.4% mortality rate.
The WHO leader, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, really stoked fear across the planet when he claimed the COVID-19 had a 3.4% mortality rate and then compared that to the annual estimated flu mortality rate of 0.1%. 
It’s not clear if he yet understands his mistake.
Regardless, it sent the global community into a collective economic meltdown.
We don’t know how horrible the economic damage will be but we know it will be huge.
And we are still nowhere near the total flu deaths we see each year. 
Here is the WHO presser where they told countries they could ease up on their quarantines.
The Examiner reported:

National leaders should plan to end lockdowns in certain areas, provided they have widespread coronavirus testing and “very sophisticated surveillance” capabilities to watch for new outbreaks, according to the World Health Organization.
“If you know what’s happening in every town, if you know what’s happening in every municipality, in every county, in every province, you can then begin to adapt your measures for the situation in that particular area,” WHO Health Emergencies Program Executive Director Michael Ryan told reporters Friday.
The WHO official offered that analysis one day after President Trump told state governors that he would like them to end the lockdowns that have proliferated in recent weeks as coronavirus cases surged in the United States.
Ryan emphasized that officials can take such a step only if they have a clear understanding of where the virus is spreading.
