WHO reports increase in global cases for 7 weeks straight

World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus announced during a briefing on Monday that globally COVID-19 cases have been growing for the last seven consecutive weeks, while deaths numbers were showing growth for four consecutive weeks, despite having delivered over 700 million vaccines.

In January and February, the world saw a drop in cases for six consecutive weeks, which according to Dr Tedros means that the virus and its mutations can be stopped, but the spread of the diseases was generated by “confusion, complacency and inconsistency in public health measures”.

“We too want to see societies and economies reopening, and travel and trade resuming. But right now, intensive care units in many countries are overflowing and people are dying – and it’s totally avoidable,” Dr Tedros stated.
