The head of the World Health Organization (WHO) Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus shared that we have that light of hope in the situation with the spreading of coronavirus in the world.
According to Ghebreyesus, a lot of people moan over the pandemic and consider that this is a hard moment for all citizens of the Earth. “But I want to be clear: there is a light of hope, and no matter where a country, region, city, or town is located, it is never too late to reverse the outbreak of COVID-19,” he said.
Actually, it is possible to get a positive outcome, despite the rapid cases of sick people and death rates of coronavirus. So, according to the specialist, this week the number of infections will reach 20 million, and the number of deaths – 750 thousand.
CEO of the organization said that several countries in the Mekong region, as well as New Zealand, Rwanda, and many island states in the Caribbean and Pacific, were able to suppress the virus early in its spread.
As of August 11, there are 19.9 million cases of people infected with coronavirus in the world, of which more than 732 thousand have died, another 12.1 million have recovered. Most cases still are found in the United States, Brazil, India, Russia, and South Africa.
