WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on Wednesday said, ‘Make no mistake: we have a long way to go. This virus will be with us for a long time.’
He noted there has been progress in western Europe.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock today said the UK is in the ‘peak’ of the outbreak as the UK announced 759 more hospital deaths.
The UK has seen 18,096 coronavirus deaths but an estimate of wider-ranging statistics has claimed the outbreak may have killed more than 41,000 when non-hospital deaths are included.
