The World Health Organization is warning that cuts to COVID testing are making it harder for public health officials to track the pandemic. WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus spoke Tuesday in Geneva.
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus: “As many countries reduce testing, WHO is receiving less and less information about transmission and sequencing. This makes us increasingly blind to patterns of transmission and evolution. But this virus won’t go away just because countries stop looking for it. It’s still spreading, it’s still changing, and it’s still killing.”
