WHO warns coronavirus is worsening globally and urges against complacency - Stuff.co.nz
WHO says Sunday's global cases were "the most in a single day", warning countries like NZ not "to take its foot off the pedal".
The head of the World Health Organisation (WHO) has warned the coronavirus pandemic is worsening globally, even as the situation in Europe is improving and New Zealand has effectively eliminated the virus with its last active case recovering on Monday. At an online press briefing on Monday (Tuesday NZ time), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus noted that about 75 per cent of cases reported to the UN health agency on Sunday came from 10 countries in the Americas and South Asia. Globally, he said more than 100,000 cases have been reported on nine of the past 10 days and the 136,000 cases reported worldwide on Sunday was "the most in a single day so far".

He also warned countries which have been successful in combating the virus against complacency. "At the same time, we're encouraged that several countries around the world are seeing positive signs,'' Tedros said. "In these countries, the biggest threat now is complacency.'' New Zealand has no active Covid-19 cases and moved to alert level 1 on Tuesday. The move to the lowest alert level means all the limits on normal freedoms introduced to combat Covid-19 are lifted except the restrictions on overseas travel.

On Monday (June 8) the World Health Organization warned that the coronavirus pandemic -- is still worsening globally. More than 136,000 cases were reported worldwide on Sunday (June 7), the most in a single day so far. That announcement comes just as countries like New Zealand, which no longer has any active coronavirus cases, further relax their stay-at-home restrictions. Technical lead Maria Van Kerkhove urged countries not to let down their guard too quickly. "So let's celebrate the successes that we do have but let's remain focused on the remaining work that needs to be done because unfortunately this is far from over." The WHO noted that the pandemic had not yet hit its peak in places like Central America, where infections are still on the rise. Brazil is now one of the hotspots of the pandemic, with the second highest number of infections, only behind the United States. More than 7 million people have been infected globally -- and over 400,000 have died.
