The head of the World Health Organization (WHO) urged countries to continue to find, isolate, test and treat all cases of COVID-19 as lockdowns across Europe started to ease with declining numbers of new cases.
“The pandemic is far from over,” Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a Geneva news conference. “WHO continues to be concerned about the increasing trends in Africa, Eastern Europe, Latin America and some Asian countries,” he added.
Tedros called for worldwide solidarity to tackle the spread of the new coronavirus.
“We can only defeat this virus through unity,” he said.
