WHO team warns after returning from China of coronavirus crisis to be worst
WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom says that many countries are going in the wrong direction. If basic measures are not taken, the epidemic will continue to spread and become worst.
Geneva: World Health Organization (WHO) Director General Tedros Adhanom has expressed dissatisfaction over the steps of several countries, warning that the epidemic could spread if basic steps are not taken.
Tedros Adhanom said during an online news briefing at the World Health Organization center in Geneva that many countries are going in the wrong direction and that the virus has been the constant enemy of civilians. He said if basic measures are not taken, this epidemic will continue to spread and it will get worst.
The Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO) said that 2,30,000 new cases were reported on Sunday. He said that 80% of these cases were from only 10 countries and 50% were reported from only two countries. The US and Brazil are the countries most affected by Corona.
Tedros stated that there will be no return to normalcy in the near future, which is a great concern. He said the World Health Organization has not received formal notice of America’s withdrawal from WHO. Donald Trump said in a statement that the World Health Organization wrongly helped China at the start of the crisis, where the Covid-19 initial cases appeared.
The US president is under severe criticism from political opponents for not taking the coronavirus seriously. However, he has denied the allegations and walked out wearing a mask for the first time in public.
