Coronavirus: WHO calls for "take control" in the face of the epidemic

For the first time since the start of the epidemic, Latin America on Friday overtook Europe in number of cases, with more than 2.7 million patients.



The World Health Organization urged, Friday, July 3, to come out of the denial and really "start the fight" against the pandemic due to the coronavirus which is still in full swing, especially in the Americas.

'It is really time for countries to look at the numbers. Please don't ignore what the numbers tell you, 'said WHO health emergency manager Michael Ryan. '"It is never too late to control it.'

The pandemic due to the new coronavirus has killed at least 522,246 people worldwide since China officially announced the appearance of the disease in December, according to a report established by Agence France-presse (AFP) from official sources at 9 p.m. Friday. More than 10.9 million cases of infection have been officially diagnosed in 196 countries and territories since the start of the epidemic.


  • The containment of the elderly in Colombia lightened

    • For the first time since the start of the epidemic, Latin America on Friday overtook Europe in number of cases, with more than 2.7 million patients. The Brazilian has identified 42,223 new infections over the past twenty-four hours for a total of 1,539,081 cases from the beginning of the epidemic. In addition, 1,290 additional deaths were recorded, bringing the total toll of the epidemic to 63,174 deaths in the country.

      In Colombia , there are 106,000 cases and 3,600 deaths. A court in Bogota ordered the head of state to "temporarily not apply" two measures decreed in the context of the health emergency, which force seniors to remain confined until August 31, a month and a half longer than the rest of the population, and only allow them to go out three times an hour a week to exercise. This decision, dated Thursday but disclosed on Friday, recognizes "the fundamental rights to equality, to the free development of personality and to the freedom of movement of applicants and adults over the age of 70" .

      Record levels in the United States

      The most mourning country in the world (129,405 deaths), the United States, whose President Donald Trump wants to cut ties with WHO in the midst of a pandemic, reached a record level on Friday with 57,683 new infections in 24 hours, bringing the total to more than 2.8 million, according to Johns Hopkins University.
