The Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has disclosed that Coronavirus will be around for a long time as most countries are still in the early stages of dealing with the deadly disease.
During a virtual press conference on Wednesday night April 22, Mr. Tedros said, “Most countries are still in the early stages of their epidemics and some that were affected early in the pandemic are starting to see a resurgence of cases. Make no mistake: we have a long way to go. This virus will be with us for a long time..
In addition, a special envoy to the WHO also doesn’t expect the coronavirus to disappear entirely until a vaccine is developed. “We think it’s going to be a virus that stalks the human race for quite a long time to come until we can all have a vaccine to protect us,” Dr. David Nabarro, a representative for the health agency, told NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
Ghebreyesus noted there has been progress in western Europe but said there were ‘worrying upward trends’ in early epidemics in part of Africa and central and South America. The WHO’s top emergencies expert Dr. Mike Ryan warned against opening up global travel too quickly, saying it would require ‘careful risk management’.
The U.S. has reported at least 530,000 coronavirus cases surpassing China with at least 20,608 deaths. There are over 1.7 million cases globally with at least 110,042 deaths.
