The COVID-19 Pandemic is Far From Over- WHO


Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus

The World's leading health body, the World Health Organization, has recently stated that the Coronavirus pandemic is far from being over at a news conference, even as some countries of the world including Nigeria relax lockdown orders so as to restart the economic and business life of their nations.

Since the outbreak of the viral infection, Pharmanewsonline gathered that four million jobs have been furloughed in the UK alone, while over 3 million people in the US have become unemployed, and countries in Africa have been plunged into more economic misery as the Coronavirus pandemic has affected small and large scale enterprises.

Coronavirus has infected more than 3 million people and killed at least 210,000 worldwide, according to Johns Hopkins University.

Reports have also shown that more than 56,000 people have died in the United States, representing more than a quarter of all deaths worldwide.

Switzerland will allow some businesses to reopen today, while Italy plans to loosen some measures on 4 May, but the WHO has warned such countries that the pandemic isn't over. World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said.

“We continue to be concerned about the increasing trends in Africa, Eastern Europe, Latin America and some Asian countries”.
“As in all regions, cases and deaths are underreported in many countries in these regions, because of low testing capacity,” Tedros said.
“This virus will not be defeated if we are not united, the virus will exploit the cracks between us and continue to create havoc. Lives will be lost,” Tedros warned.
