The World Health Organization is holding a briefing Friday on the coronavirus pandemic as cases accelerate in the United States and Europe.
Earlier this week, the WHO warned that the public must take care of the pandemic “for the long haul” as cases proceed to quickly develop with no indicators of slowing. As the Northern Hemisphere enters the fall and winter seasons, the worldwide company is seeing Covid-19 cases accelerate, notably in Europe and North America, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus stated Monday.
“I think everyone is expecting this to be over very, very quickly. This is going to take some time and I think we all need to be mentally prepared,” Maria Van Kerkhove, the WHO’s technical lead, additionally stated Monday. “This is not to scare anyone, but to get ourselves ready.”
