Geneva: The the World Health Organization (WHO) warned on Monday that the new coronavirus pandemic raging around the globe will be worsen.
While briefing to media through video conferencing in Geneva, WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told that “Let me be blunt, too many countries are headed in the wrong direction, the virus remains public enemy number one.”
In addition to this, he said that “if basics are not followed, the only way this pandemic is going to go – it is going to get worse and worse and worse.”
According to a Reuters tally, Global infections stand at 13 million with more than half a million deaths.
Tedros, whose leadership has been heavily criticised by U.S. President Donald Trump, said that of 230,000 new cases on Sunday, 80% were from 10 nations, and 50% from just two countries.
The United States and Brazil are the worst-hit countries by coronavirus.
Furtherly, Tedros added that “there will be no return to the old normal for the foreseeable future … There is a lot to be concerned about.”
