The WHO found that factors such as case detection, definitions, test strategies, reporting and delay times vary between countries, areas and areas. A senior official at the agency warned this week that some countries may need to reintroduce blocking measures as they struggle to contain the virus.
"Some countries that have managed to suppress the transmission that are now opening may have a setback, may need to intervene again, and may need to re-implement these so-called locks," said Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, head of the WHO Department of Emerging Diseases, at a press conference in Geneva on Wednesday. "We don't hope. We hope that we won't have to get into a widespread ban again, so it's not too late to act quickly."
In mid-June, WHO announced that coronavirus cases that had record numbers worldwide were not just the result of tests in more countries. Mike Ryan, executive director of the WHO emergency program, said on June 22 that hospitalizations and deaths were also increasing.
In the United States in particular, according to the WHO, 2.72 million cases of Covid-19 have been reported in the last 24 hours, with 53,213 cases being reported. According to the WHO report on Saturday, 128,481 people had died of Covid-19 in the United States, with 623 deaths reported in the last 24 hours.
While confirmed cases are on the rise in the US, the virus appears to be killing fewer people than it is infecting, the New York Times reported on Friday, which experts say may be due to testing, treatment, and "a shift in the virus infected ". "" However, due to a delay in the attribution of deaths, deaths from Covid-19 may still increase.
Brazil was another country in America that led new cases. The country has seen nearly 1.5 million confirmed cases, with 48,105 new cases in the past 24 hours. The country had 61,884 deaths from the virus, 1,252 of which have been reported in the last 24 hours.
