WHO Chief: ‘Worst is Yet to Come’ in Coronavirus Pandemic

The leader of the World Health Organization said the coronavirus pandemic has gained traction and criticized governments that haven’t established reliable contact tracing methods to stop the virus’s spread.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, speaking Monday at a briefing in Geneva, said he understood the frustration many are dealing with in terms of the disease.

“We all want to get on with our lives,” Tedros said, NPR reported. “But the hard reality is this is not even close to being over with. Although many countries have made some progress, globally the pandemic is actually speeding up.”

Currently, more than 10 million confirmed cases have been confirmed worldwide, including more than 500,000 deaths, according to a Johns Hopkins University tracker.

Tedros said testing, contact tracing, isolation and quarantining are the keys to fighting the disease.

“If any country is saying contact tracing is difficult, it is a lame excuse,” he said.
