(ORDO NEWS) — The World Health Organization has officially warned the international community that the world is approaching the highest level of coronavirus spread. Over the past two months, the world weekly incidence rates have at least doubled.
WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus stressed that over the past two months, the number of new cases reported each week has almost doubled. This brings us closer to the highest infection rate in a pandemic.
Countries such as Papua New Guinea, which previously managed to avoid widespread infection, are now recording the rapid spread of the coronavirus.
Official statistics say that the rapid increase in the incidence of coronavirus continues for the seventh consecutive week, and the increase in mortality for the fourth week in a row.
The National Security and Defense Council draws attention to the fact, as of April 16, in the world since the beginning of the pandemic, almost 140 million people have confirmed the coronavirus.
