Spike in Coronavirus deaths expected!
The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that the dreadful Coronavirus pandemic is accelerating all over the globe and as a result, there is an expected increase in the number of deaths worldwide, due to the killer Coronavirus.
Dr Michael Ryan, Executive Director, World Health Organization’s Health Emergencies Programme stated that an increase in cases being seen globally, was not as a result of more widespread testing being done. He said it was because:
“This epidemic is accelerating.”
Dr Michael Ryan added:
“We’ve only really experienced this rapid increase in cases over the last five to six weeks. So I don’t think it should be a surprise if the deaths start to rise again.”
Meanwhile, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director-General said that the New Coronavirus pandemic was now in a process of accelerating and that the killer virus had not yet reached its peak.
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said:
“The outbreak is accelerating, and we have clearly not reached the peak of the pandemic.”
The WHO Director-General said that for the world to see 400,000 COVID-19 cases, it took 12 weeks. But over the weekend, there were over 400,000 cases all over the world.
Tedros Adhanom stated:
“While the number of deaths appears to have levelled off globally, in reality some countries have made significant progress in reducing the number of deaths, while in other countries deaths are still on the rise. Where there has been progress in reducing deaths, countries have implemented targeted actions toward the most vulnerable groups, such as those living in long-term care facilities.”
Dr Michael Ryan further stated:
“In April and May, we were dealing with 100,000 cases a day. Today we’re dealing with 200,000 a day.”
Across the planet, there are about 5.5 lac people dead and around 11 million cases, because of Coronavirus.
