Coronavirus ‘Actually on the Way Up’, Warns WHO

NEW YORK – With infections rapidly mounting in places like Brazil and India, a top official in the world health organization (WHO) has warned that the worldwide crisis is far from over.
Still, the World Health Organization said the world remains mired in only the pandemic’s first stage, putting a damper on hopes for a rapid global economic rebound.
“We are not in the second wave right now. Globally, we are right in the center of the first wave,” said Dr. Mike Ryan, executive director of the WHO.
“We ‘re still very much at a stage where the epidemic is still on its way up,” said Ryan, referring to South America, South Asia and other areas of the world.
India, with over 1.3 billion inhabitants, saw a record single-day jump for the seventh straight day in new cases. Tuesday it recorded 6,535 new infections, increasing its total to over 145,000, including nearly 4,200 deaths.
Much of India’s cases are concentrated in Maharashtra, home of Mumbai’s financial center, and Gujarat, the western states.
Infections also climbed in the east, as migrant workers stranded by lockdowns returned from India’s largest cities to their native villages.
Fears could be much higher for Brazil.
In Brazil, where President Jair Bosonaro protested against state and local officials for implementing stay-at-home initiatives, WHO cautioned that authorities must have enough monitoring in place to contain the spread of the virus before they reopen the economy.
Brazil has 375,000 coronavirus infections – second only to the US 1.6 million cases – and has numbered more than 23,000 deaths, but many believe the actual toll of Brazil is even higher.
Ryan said Brazil’s “intense” rate of transmission means it should keep some stay-at-home measures in place, irrespective of the economic damage.
“You have to go on doing what you can,” he said.
A US travel ban was set for foreigners coming from Brazil to take effect Tuesday.
