WHO warns global pandemic is worsening

Highest daily jump of cases …

The world has recorded its highest daily jump of cases (136,000), according to the WHO chief, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who said: “More than six months into the pandemic, this is not the time for any country to take its foot off the pedal.” 

“Although the situation in Europe is improving, globally it is worsening,” he said.

Nearly 75% of the 136,000 cases were reported from 10 countries, mostly in the Americas and South Asia. 

“I think this is a time of great concern,” he said, calling for strong government leadership and international support for the region. 

Maria van Kerkhove, the WHO’s technical lead on the virus, said that a “comprehensive approach” was essential in South America.
