WHO Says Coronavirus May Be Around For Months

The World Health Organization warn that the new coronavirus might be around for months but said the measures China implemented have prevented the infections of hundreds of thousands of people.

 

Bruce Aylward, leader of a joint WHO-China mission of experts said “We have outbreaks in multiple countries right now, increasing at exponential growth rates,” he said. The epidemic has killed nearly 2,600 people and infected over 77,000 people in China, with new cases and fatalities emerging in Europe, the Middle East and Asia in recent days.

 

The spread of COVID-19 in other parts of the world has accelerated over the past week, with Iran, South Korea and Italy emerging as the worst new hotspots. “Thinking you’ve beaten this virus is the single biggest risk,” he also added.
