“Let me be frank, many countries are going in the wrong direction, the virus remains the number one public enemy,” said WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. “If the basics are not followed, the only place this pandemic will go … will get worse and worse and worse,” he continued. “But it doesn’t have to be that way.”
More than half a million fatalities have also been reported by Covid-19.
And the truth is that there are countries that continue to break records of new contamination every day.
The WHO leader – who has been criticized by the Trump presidency for the way he handled this pandemic in the beginning – also said that of the 230,000 new cases recorded on Sunday 80 percent were from just 10 nations. And 50 percent of just two countries: the United States of America and Brazil.
“There will be no return to the old normal in the near future,” said Tedros. “There is still a lot to do”.
The Director-General of WHO also said today that he had not yet received formal notification of the U.S. withdrawal from the health organization, as announced by President Donald Trump.
Trump has accused WHO of aligning himself with China in the beginning by hiding the truth about the virus.
