She noted that “there are countries, where (currently) the growth is observed (of the number of infected with coronavirus) but there are also the countries with decrease”. The WHO follows the situation daily reviews the situation in the countries, where a decrease of the number of infected people is observed.

According to the WHO representative, many people do not realize the threat of coronavirus due to the fact that only 5% of the world population had a critical illness.

“But these 5% suffer terrifically; their life is at risk; it is hard to talk about it but it is really hard for them,” Nitzan added.
