COVID-19 Cases Near 100,000 – WHO Report

The World Health Organization says confirmed COVID-19 cases is almost at 100,000.

At a press briefing in Geneva, Switzerland Friday, Director General Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus urged all nations to make containment of COVID-19 their highest priority.


“Women are also playing a vital role in the response to COVID-19 and we’re proud to have many amazing women leading our response in WHO. We are now on the verge of reaching 100,000 confirmed cases, as cases increase, we’re continuing to recommend that all countries make containment their highest priority. The only way we can beat this virus is when we stand together. And that’s, that has been the message from WHO all along. And it is, and it will be”, Ghebreyesus said.

‘‘You can talk to your children. You can talk to your, parents, you can talk to older people, if you have neighbors that don’t live with other people. Talk to them. Find out what do they need to know? What are their fears, as the DG has said, many times, facts, not fears. Let’s address these fears and turn this fear into some positive action”, he said
