WHO warns that COVID-19 could worsen

World Health Organisation (WHO) Director-General, Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, has said that the Covid-19 pandemic will continue to worsen if governments do not take further decisive action in their country to control the spread.

Adhanom Ghebreyesus said that there were too many countries that were veering in the wrong direction which has resulted in an explosion of cases because they have not taken the measures they were asked to do. America is currently the epicentre of the pandemic, with 3.3 million cases confirmed in the United States alone, and 135,000 deaths.

The Who said that in order to control the pandemic, the measures they have been preaching about for so long, that of social distance, hand washing, and wearing masks, must be taken seriously.
