Covid-19 still accelerating, WHO warns

The World Health Organization chief, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, has warned that the pandemic continues to accelerate, with the number of cases worldwide doubling in the past six weeks.

Worldwide, there are 16.4m cases, according to the Johns Hopkins University tracker.

“When I declared a public health emergency of international concern on the 30th of January – the highest level of alarm under international law – there were less than 100 cases outside of China, and no deaths,” Ghebreyesus said.
