WHO warns ‘the worst is yet to come’

Geneva: The coronavirus pandemic is still accelerating and without more collaborative global intervention, “the worst is yet to come,” Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the director-general of the World Health Organization said.

“Although many countries have made some progress, globally, the pandemic is actually speeding up,” he said during a virtual news conference from the agency’s Geneva headquarters. “We all want this to be over. We all want to get on with our lives, but the hard reality is that this is not even close to being over.”

Most new cases are coming from countries in the Americas, especially the U.S. and Brazil, according to data collected by the WHO. Tedros emphasized that some countries have experienced a resurgence after reopening parts of their economy and society.

The best way to combat the spread of the virus is with proven strategies, including widespread testing, contact tracing and isolation of infected people, Tedros said. Improved clinician care for patients will also help to reduce the death rate, he said.
