WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, at the media briefing on COVID-19 that was held on July 1, 2020, noted that more than 10.3 million cases of COVID-19 have now been reported to WHO, and more than 506,000 deaths.
For the past week, the number of new cases has exceeded 160,000 on every single day. 60% of all cases so far have been reported just in the past month.
“We will never get tired of saying that the best way out of this pandemic is to take a comprehensive approach. Find, isolate, test and care for every case, trace and quarantine every contact, equip and train health workers and educate and empower communities to protect themselves and others. Not testing alone. Not physical distancing alone. Not contact tracing alone. Not masks alone. Do it all”, said WHO Director-General.
WHO is holding a second research and innovation forum, bringing together more than 1000 scientists from all over the world to take stock of the progress made so far, to discuss new research questions and knowledge gaps, and to define research priorities for the remainder of this year and beyond.
