In case if the authorities of all countries in the world do no assume aggressive measures, aiming for the fight against Covid-19 coronavirus, millions of people may die as the World Health Organization reported on Twitter citing its Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

"The Covid-19 pandemic is accelerating at an exponential rate. The first 100,000 cases took 67 days. The second 100,000 took 11 days. The third 100,000 took just 4 days. The fourth 100,000 just 2 days. Without aggressive action in all countries, millions could die",” he said.

Besides, he noted that the world stays at war with the virus, which ‘threatens to tear us apart – if we let it’.

Earlier, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus stated that request to people to stay home is the measure, which will stop the speed of coronavirus spread and will reduce the pressure on the healthcare system. However, only isolation will not stop the Covid-2019 pandemic.

As we reported, the number of people infected with Covid-19 in Germany increased up to 41,343 people; 219 of them died.
