The world is presently at a basic crossroads in the COVID-19 pandemic and a few nations are on a risky way, confronting the possibility of wellbeing administrations imploding under the strain, the top of the World Health Organization said on Friday.
"We are at a basic crossroads in the COVID-19 pandemic, especially in the Northern side of the equator," WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a news gathering. "The following scarcely any months will be exceptionally extreme and a few nations are on a perilous track."
"We ask pioneers to make quick move, to forestall further pointless passings, fundamental wellbeing administrations from falling and schools closing once more. As I said it in February and I'm rehashing it today: This isn't a drill."
Tedros said such a large number of nations were currently observing an exponential increment in diseases, "and that is presently prompting medical clinics and escalated care units running close or above limit - we're still just in October".
