According to the most optimistic estimates, 10% of the world's population could be infected with the coronavirus. This was stated by head of the emergency services of the World Health Organization (WHO) Michael Ryan, AP news agency reported.

"The head of the World Health Organization for Emergencies said on Monday that his 'best estimates' indicate that approximately 1 in 10 people worldwide may have been infected with the coronavirus," the report said.

So, the WHO says that today the number of confirmed cases is greatly underestimated and does not correspond to the real situation. Rates differ among urban and rural residents, as well as among other groups, which ultimately means that “the vast majority of the world remains at risk.”

The estimate of more than 760 million infected with the current population of the Earth of about 7.6 billion far exceeds the number of confirmed cases. To date, WHO and Johns Hopkins University have confirmed more than 35 million cases of Covid-19 infection worldwide.

As we reported before, within a week the number of newly diagnosed cases of coronavirus infection in Ukraine will reach 5,000 per day.
