COVID-19 is Now Well-Established at Global Level, Says WHO Expert

The latest numbers from the WHO show that more than 183,000 new cases of COVID-19 were reported worldwide

A World Health Organization (WHO) expert said that in light of the accelerating increase in new cases — especially in some populous countries — the COVID-19 pandemic is now well-established at a global level.

Michael Ryan, Executive Director of WHO Health Emergencies Program, made the remarks at a press conference in Geneva on Monday, responding to a question regarding the highest daily number of confirmed cases globally recorded on Sunday and the possible reason behind it, Xinhua news agency reported.

“The situation is definitely accelerating in a number of countries with larger populations and that is most certainly contributing to this overall increased number,” he explained.

Ryan said that some of that increase may be attributed to increased testing, but the WHO does not believe that testing is the main reason.

“Hospital admissions are also rising in a number of countries, deaths are also rising, and they’re not due to increased testing per se,” he noted.

He said that as the virus has reached some of the most populous countries and most populated areas in the world, and as the epidempandemic, ic is now moving towards a peak in a number of large countries at the same time, they contribute to a surge in cases globally.

“Now in Europe … you’re seeing the curves decrease. In Southeast Asia, you’re seeing the curves decrease. And then the overall numbers increase, which clearly means the Americas are contributing, South Asia is contributing very much, but also there are countries in the Middle East and there are countries in Africa that are also contributing to that overall increase. ”

The latest numbers from the WHO show that more than 183,000 new cases of COVID-19 were reported worldwide on Sunday, which was easily the most in a single day so far. More than 8.8 million cases have now been reported to the WHO, and more than 465,000 people have lost lives. (IANS)
