As the number of new global coronavirus cases reaches record highs, the World Health Organization is warning the coronavirus outbreak will continue to worsen if government’s don’t take basic public health measures.
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus: “If the basics aren’t followed, there is only one way this pandemic is going to go: It’s going to get worse and worse and worse. … I want to be straight with you: There will be no return to the old normal for the foreseeable future.”
