WHO officials dance to destress during meeting
    2018-January-30  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE World Health Organization’s first high-level meeting of the year stopped to destress from heightening tensions to dance to pop-punk band Fall Out Boy on the floor on the executive board room in Geneva on Thursday.

The WHO senior officials rose to dance to the 2013 hit “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)” by the four-piece band.

Senior civil servants, government officials and health ministers of nations across the world were attending the meeting when they broke out into dance.

The chair of the executive board of the WHO wanted to incorporate exercise into the summit following suggestions from the Thai delegation.

The movement was secretly pre-planned by the chair of the meeting after a call from Thailand to increase the exercise incorporated to the meeting.

Following a video on screen to copy, officials including Director General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, danced to the hit from the American band’s fifth studio album “Save Rock and Roll.”

The two-minute exercise appeared to ease tensions before the officials returned to their seats at the summit in Geneva.

In 2002, WHO launched an initiative called “Move for Health” which encouraged people to exercise during work hours. (SD-Agencies)
