World Health Organization (WHO) officials held a press conference Monday to provide an update on the global situation of the coronavirus pandemic. Cases around the world are now over 37 million, with deaths surpassing 1 million. The U.S. is leading with nearly 7.8 million cases, followed by India that just passed 7 million cases. Many countries are imposing new restrictions as the second wave of COVID-19 hits parts of Europe, North America, and the Middle East. Dr. Mike Ryan, executive director of the WHO’s emergencies programme has said authorities should try to avoid “punishing” lockdowns amid the COVID-19 pandemic, as many countries see a sharp rise in the number of infections. Ryan stated countries should not just focus on restrictive measures, but also surveillance, COVID-19 testing, tracking, and community education.
