WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus warned on Wednesday that the coronavirus pandemic will take a long time to leave the world.
“Make no mistake we have a long way to go. This virus will be with us for a long time,” he said at the daily virtual briefing in Geneva.
He noted the progress in Western Europe in taming the virus.
But he also pointed out the “worrying upward trends” in early epidemics in parts of Africa central and South America.
