Coronavirus now getting worse all over the globe!
The Head of the World Health Organization (WHO), has warned that all across the globe, the Coronavirus pandemic is now getting worse.
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the Head of WHO, said that around 75% of the Coronavirus cases which had been reported on Sunday, to the health agency of the UN, had come from 10 countries in South Asia and the Americas. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus also said that in 9 out of the past 10 days, over 100,000 Novel Coronavirus cases were reported. He added that on Sunday, 136,000 Coronavirus cases were reported and these were the largest number of cases that have been reported thus far.
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus stated:
“At the same time, we’re encouraged that several countries around the world are seeing positive signs. In these countries, the biggest threat now is complacency.”
Regarding the killing of George Floyd and the subsequent protests, the WHO chief said:
“WHO fully supports equality and the global movement against racism. We reject discrimination of all kinds. As much as possible, keep at least one metre from others, clean your hands, cover your cough and wear a mask if you attend a protest.”
Regarding anyone who had gone to a mass protest, Michael Ryan, WHO’s Emergencies Director said:
“It comes back down to local public health analysis and local risk management. There may be situations with mass gatherings where local public health officials, on the basis of an abundance of caution, could advise people either to quarantine or to get tested. We would hope that in any mass gathering now… people who have had now four to five months to really internalise, that someone who is unwell… should really be at home and not engaged in any public activity. But we would always defer to national and sub-national authorities if they wish and need to take necessary public health actions that are based on risk assessment, that are based on scientific evidence.”
The WHO chief said:
“As much as possible, keep at least one metre from others, clean your hands, cover your cough and wear a mask if you attend a protest. Stay home if you are sick and contact a health care provider.”
