WHO: achievements in the fight against COVID-19 are under threat
The Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said that the achievements in the fight against coronavirus infection in the world were under threat.
вЂњIn five of the six WHO regions, COVID-19 infection has increased by 80% over the past four weeks, that is, it has almost doubled. In Africa, the death rate has increased by 80%, " said Gebreyesus.
As the head of state noted, the increase in mobility and contacts, as well as the improper application of measures in the field of health and social measures contributed to the increase in the scale of the disease and mortality.
вЂњWhat was hardly achieved has been threatened or lost, and health systems in many countries are experiencing overload,вЂќ he concluded.
