COVID-19: Global cases reach 5 Million

Global coronavirus cases exceed 5 million

Global coronavirus cases exceed 5 million

"But two thirds of these cases were reported in just four countries", Mr Ghebreyesus said.

The World Health Organization expressed concern on Wednesday about the rising number of new coronavirus cases in poor countries, even as many rich nations have begun emerging from lockdown.

Brazil - the most populous country in South America - recently surpassed Germany, France and the United Kingdom to become the third largest epidemic in the world, behind only the United States and Russian Federation, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

Europe appears to be over the inital hump of infections, with the number of new cases and deaths on a steady decline, allowing some lockdowns to be eased.

The numbers come as several other countries report increases in their coronavirus cases. They now have more than 291,579 confirmed cases of coronavirus and at least 18,859 deaths from the virus.

Russian Federation has almost 309,000 confirmed infections and 2,972 people have died with COVID-19, while Brazil has nearly 292,000 recorded cases and a much higher death toll, at 18,859. "We don't have a real policy to manage the outbreak".

Despite being loaded on offense, the Cardinals have been inefficient in 2019 and rank near the bottom-10 in runs and home runs. Louis has title-winning pedigree and are loaded offensively, but thus far simply haven’t delivered consistent results.

Though China has faced criticism of its initial handling of the outbreak, the country has since brought domestic cases down to a trickle and kept deaths far lower toll than in the worst-hit countries, according to its official figures.

The world saw the highest daily spike in coronavirus cases on Wednesday since the start of the pandemic, the BBC reported. A WHO study released last week predicted that Africa could be on the precipice of a large number of cases, which many of its countries' health systems will struggle to cope with.

"We have of course received the letter and we are looking into it", Tedros said.

Beijing tells a different story, with President Xi Jinping determined to project a narrative of strength and success in reining in the outbreak that first emerged in his country late a year ago before wreaking havoc around the globe.

"The landmark resolution underlines WHO's key role in promoting access to safe, effective health technologies to fight the pandemic", he said.
