As the global pandemic coronavirus continues to escalate, the World Health Organization, ( WHO,) said it has recorded more than 183,000 new cases of COVID-19 which the organization described as the most in a single day so far.
This was contained in a press release signed by the WHO DG, Dr. Tedros Adhanom on Monday.
On Monday, more than 183,000 new cases of COVID-19 were reported to WHO – easily the most in a single day so far.
More than 8.8 million cases have now been reported to WHO, and more than 465,000 people have died due to the virus.
“Some countries are continuing to see a rapid increase in cases and deaths.
Some countries that have successfully suppressed transmission are now seeing an upswing in cases as they reopen their societies and economies.
“All countries are facing a delicate balance, between protecting their people, while minimizing the social and economic damage”.
It’s not a choice between lives and livelihoods. Countries can do both.
We urge countries to be careful and creative in finding solutions that enable people to stay safe while getting on with their lives.
