    The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned governments around the world against easing COVID-19 restrictions too soon, saying countries that did so risked paying a heavy price for rushing back to normality.

    Speaking at a press briefing on Monday, the United Nations health agency’s top emergency expert Mike Ryan said a new wave of infections could be around the corner and noted that for much of the world, the pandemic was just getting started.

    “All of the countries of the Americas, we still have nearly one million cases a week,” he said.

    “And the same in Europe … with half a million cases a week. It’s not like this thing has gone away,” Ryan added. “It isn’t over.”
