The spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in the world is accelerating, despite the improvement in some countries, said World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhan Ghebreyesus.
– Some countries have faced an increase in cases when opening their economies and returning to social life. Most people remain vulnerable to the virus. He still has a place to turn around. <…> The difficult reality is that the situation has not yet ended, RIA-Novosti quotes Gebreyesus.
The director noted that six months have passed since the organization received the first information about the unknown virus and the focus of coronavirus in China. Six months later, the number of people infected in the world reached ten million people, 500 thousand died, he added.
The Director of WHO also noted that we have now entered a new and dangerous phase of the pandemic. According to him, this is due to the fact that many people are “tired of sitting at home”, while the virus is still spreading rapidly and remains deadly.
