World Health Organization According to the World Health Organization, the number of deaths due to coronavirus will exceed 50,000 within the “next few days”.
The organization’s CEO, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, told reporters Wednesday night that the growing number of COVID-19 deaths was “deeply troubling”. “As we enter the fourth month since the pandemic began, I am deeply concerned about the rapid escalation and global spread of the infection.
Over the last five weeks we have seen an almost exponential increase in the number of new cases reaching almost every country, territory and area. The number of cases more than doubled last week. In the next few days, we will reach one million confirmed cases and 50,000 deaths, ”he said.
His words came as the number of confirmed cases worldwide was about 911,000 and deaths more than 45,000. Dr Tedros called for more assistance to countries in Africa and Central and South America, where he said COVID-19 “could have serious social, economic and political consequences.”
