Please ensure you enter your name and media outlet (use name/outlet) We are now using a waiting room prior to the meeting commencing; when you sign in you will be automatically put in the meeting room.

Kindly note, only questions from media (one per journalist) will be allowed during the press conference. In addition, if the capacity of the room is reached, individuals who are not named correctly might need to make room for registered journalists. Therefore, please ensure that you are named correctly with your name and media outlet. In addition, WHO reserves the right to remove any participant whose behaviour causes any disruption or interruption to the proceedings. If the capacity of the room is reached, or for any other reason you are not able to access the zoom meeting, kindly note that the event is also broadcast on WHO social media channels and you can follow it there.

Please note that we receive a large volume of questions and will answer as many as we can during the time allowed.  

To ask a question, please click "raise hand" and this will enter you into the queue for questions. (it can be found under the tab: participants) 

Please make sure you have a microphone connected or active on your computer. Please do not ask questions via the chat as we can not guarantee that we will see them and be able to incorporate them into the q&a session. 

WHO is now offering interpretation in various languages for our Virtual Press Conferences, choices are under "interpretation" or "language interpretation" depending on which version of Zoom application you are using.

Please note that due to the volume of questions we receive during the press conference, we are no longer able to take questions from phone callers. You will also not be able to hear interpretation on the telephone. If you want to ask a question, please join through above ways of accessing. 

Best Regards,
WHO Media Team
