The World Health Organization (WHO) warned on Friday that the world has entered a “new dangerous phase” in the fight against the coronavirus epidemic.

The WHO said more than 1,150,000 new cases of the virus had been reported in countries around the world in recent days, the largest one-day increase by the agency so far.

“The epidemic is accelerating,” WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanam Brebrasius told a press briefing on Friday.

“This is the new dangerous phase for the world. Many people are tired of being at home.” “Countries are naturally eager to open up their societies and their economies. But the virus continues to spread rapidly. It’s still deadly. And most people are still vulnerable.”

As of Thursday, more than 8,385,000 cases have been reported to the WHO. More than 450,000 people have died since the virus contracted, according to agency figures. Although most of the new cases reported in recent record days have been reported in the United States, he said the growing number of cases in South Asia and the Middle East is also a cause for concern.

According to a Johns Hopkins University trekker, more than 2.5 million cases were reported in the country on Friday, and the United States continues to dominate the world in terms of the number of cases, with more than 188,000 deaths. With more than 47,700 deaths confirmed on Thursday, Brazil is expected to become the second country to cross the million mark after a week’s high court.

The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation estimates that the United States will record approximately 170,000 COVID-19 deaths by October 1, compared to 125,000 deaths in Brazil in early August.


In other parts of the world, China has recently started filing new cases in Beijing after imposing strict sanctions in the first month of the year and India has maintained its position as the fourth most affected country.

More than 380,000 cases were reported to the WHO on Friday. The Middle East, meanwhile, has seen an increase in virus cases in recent months, with Iran leading the way and surpassing 200,000 this week.

Although G. Breezes said he recognized individuals and countries facing constant efforts to practice physical distance and avoid gathering in large groups, he encouraged and warned everyone to be careful.

“Who is the most vulnerable person who will suffer the most,” he said, adding that every country, no matter how rich or poor, is home to communities made up of vulnerable citizens.

“We continue to call on each country to focus on the basics: finding, sorting, isolating, testing and treating each case,” he said.

WHO did not respond to Newsweek’s request for further comment prior to publication.
