WHO says it investigating potential cluster of COVID-19 cases among staff

The World Health Organization (WHO) said it’s investigating a potential cluster of Covid-19 cases. WHO said there had been 65 coronavirus infections among staff at its headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.

Maria Van Kerkhove, WHO technical lead for COVID-19, said that five WHO staff members had tested positive in the past week, adding: “All are doing well, all have had a mild disease or (are) asymptomatic.”

“To my knowledge, the cluster being investigated is the first evidence of potential transmission on the site of WHO, but we can’t completely protect ourselves from our own social and other engagements with family and school and so many other things,” Mike Ryan, WHO’s top emergency expert said.
