05/03/2021




Aslıhan DOĞRU -TDO- The World Health Organization (WHO) has announced an increase in the number of new coronavirus (Covid-19) cases worldwide for the first time in the last 7 weeks.

"We all need to get a very strong warning, this virus can re-accelerate and we should not allow it," Maria Van Kerkhove, technical director for Covid-19 said at a press conference.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the increase was "disappointing" but not a "surprise".

Ghebreyesus wants countries to continue implementing anti-pandemic policies while warning that it is too early to rely on vaccination.

"Public health measures continue to form the basis of the struggle," Ghebreyesus said in his statement.
