WHO boss Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said several countries that thought they had the corona virus under control were witnessing a revival in the case. Meanwhile, there are disturbing trends in Africa and America.
In the face of criticism, he also insisted that the UN health agency had declared a global emergency at the right time for countries to prepare and plan their responses.
“Most countries are still in the early stages of their epidemic. And some who were affected by the initial pandemic are now beginning to see a resurgence in cases. “he told a virtual press conference in Geneva.
As you know, WHO has been criticized by the United States for handling pandemic which is considered slow. However, Tedros dismissed the call for him to retreat.
He added, “Make no mistake: we still have a long way to go. This virus will be with us for a long time. “
He said most of the epidemics in western Europe appeared to be stable or declining.
However, “despite the low numbers, we see alarming upward trends in Africa, Central and South America and Eastern Europe”, he said.
The global death toll has passed 180,000, while more than 2.5 million cases have been declared registered since the epidemic was reported in China at the end of last year.
The World Health Organization (WHO) says, Covid-19 will cover the planet for quite a long time. The international health agency warned that most countries were still in the initial stages of overcoming a pandemic.
