The Corona pandemic continues to intensify on a global scale. Number of infections and deaths rising.
The number of reported infections per week has been rising for nine weeks, and the number of reported deaths for six weeks, WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said Monday in Geneva. “To show the dimension: There were almost as many cases last week as in the first five months of the pandemic combined,” Tedros said. In India in particular, he said, the situation is “more than heartbreaking.”
WHO did not have the latest number of infections reported in a week on its website Tuesday. On April 19, it reported nearly 5.7 million cases in a week worldwide, up just over 400,000 from the previous week.
