The head of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, warns that the world – especially the northern hemisphere – is now at a critical point in the coronavirus pandemic. He adds, “The coming months will be very difficult and some countries are on a dangerous track.”
“We are calling on leaders to take immediate action to prevent further unnecessary deaths, the collapse of the primary health system and the re-closure of schools,” said Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.
“Today I am repeating what I said in February: these are not exercises” – emphasized the head of the WHO.
