The rate of coronavirus spread across the world is still hastening, and most of the countries don't have control over it yet. The Guardian wrote this, quoting Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the leader of the World Healthcare Organization (WHO).
"In most of the world the virus is not under control. It is getting worse. 11.8+m cases of Covid-19 have now been reported to WHO. More than 544,000 lives have been lost. The pandemic is still accelerating. The total number of cases has doubled in the last six weeks", the official said.
According to Ghebreyesus, the spike of Covid-19 revealed "existing inequities, widening and deepening the cracks between us" - both in healthcare systems and in more general strata of the society. The disease's impact "has upended health systems in some of the world’s wealthiest nations, while some countries that have mounted a successful response have been of modest means".
As of 9 p.m., July 9, 12,257,617 cases of infection were observed worldwide. 554,062 of these people deceased.
