The head of the World Health Organization has warned of worrying upward trends in coronavirus cases in Africa, Central and South America and Eastern Europe. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a video news conference in Geneva that while most of the epidemics in western Europe appeared to be stable or in decline, for many countries the disease was just getting started.
Dr Tedros said some countries which had appeared to do well in the initial stages of the pandemic were now seeing an upsurge in cases.
“Most countries are still in the early stages of their epidemics and some that were affected early in the pandemic are now starting to see a resurgence in cases,” he said.
“Make no mistake, we have a long way to go. This virus will be with us for a long time.”

Britain should expect to see only a slow decrease in cases and deaths from the coronavirus, given the experience of other countries that are further along in their outbreaks, the government’s chief medical adviser said.
“Even in those countries which started their epidemic curve earlier than the UK, and which are still ahead, the downward slope from the point where we change is a relatively slow one,” Chris Whitty, who is the Chief Medical Officer for England, said at a news conference, referring to a graph showing the 7-day rolling average of deaths in different countries.
“We should anticipate the same situation in the UK,” he said. “We should not expect this to be a sudden fall away of cases.”
