WHO Director Warns That “The Worst Is Yet To Come”

The New York Daily News reports:

With more than 500,000 people killed by coronavirus in the six months since it first emerged, the World Health Organization has warned the COVID-19 crisis is actually speeding up and that the “worst is yet to come.”

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of the World Health Organization, during a virtual briefing on Monday acknowledged some nations have had success containing the virus but said that a lack of global unity could prove a true risk amid the pandemic.

“With 10 million cases now and half a million deaths, unless we address the problems we’ve already identified at WHO, the lack of national unity and lack of global solidarity and the divided world which is actually helping the virus to spread… the worst is yet to come,” Ghebreyesus said.
