Covid-19 Is Getting Worse-WHO Boss Warns Nations. The World Health Organization has warned that the Corona virus pandemic is “accelerating and getting worse”. This they warn as lock down measures are being relaxed in several countries in the world.
Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the director-general of the WHO, said the Covid-19 pandemic has still not reached its peak as he warned that corona virus is not under control “in most of the world” and is in fact “getting worse”. He urge leaders to play their roles during this period.
He said the Corona virus cases are increasing drastically. There is almost 12million confirmed infections since the pandemic first began in China back in December 2019. Dr Tedros made this known while speaking at the member state briefing on the Covid-19 pandemic evaluation. He said that countries should take a comprehensive approach against this pandemic. The WHO boss also urge people to obey the laid down guidelines concerning this virus.
Dr. Tedros said:
“The virus has upended health systems in some of the world’s wealthiest nations, while some countries that have mounted a successful response have been of modest means.
“We know that when countries take a comprehensive approach based on fundamental public health measures – such as find, isolate, test and treat cases, and trace and quarantine contacts – the outbreak can be brought under control.
“But in most of the world, the virus is not under control. It is getting worse. “More than 11.8 million cases of Covid-19 have now been reported to WHO.
More than 544,000 lives have been lost. “And the pandemic is still accelerating. The total number of cases has doubled in the last six weeks.”
The United States has the highest caseload and deaths in the World, with over 3 million corona virus cases and more than 130,000 fatalities recorded so far. Recall that Boss Mustapha said Christians are being reckless concerning this virus.
