WHO warns that COVID-19 pandemic still going strong
Published on Jul 27, 2020
The global tally has risen by a million in just four days, led by massive outbreaks in the United States, India and Brazil which are each piling up tens of thousands of new cases per day. South Africa is also seeing more than 10,000 new cases a day while places such as Spain, Belgium and Hong Kong are facing second waves of the disease. WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the number of cases had doubled in just six weeks as he warned today that 'the pandemic continues to accelerate'. However, while cases have been surging at record levels, global deaths have remained stagnant at around 30,000 to 40,000 per week.
