The escalating coronavirus pandemic has the potential to get much worse if all nations refuse to comply with basic healthcare precautions, cautioned the World Health Organisation (WHO).

“Let me be blunt, too many countries are headed in the wrong direction, the virus remains public enemy number one,” Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a virtual briefing from WHO headquarters in Geneva.

“If basics are not followed, the only way this pandemic is going to go, it is going to get worse and worse and worse. But it does not have to be this way.”

According to a tally by Reuters, infections have risen above 13 million worldwide, climbing by one million in just five days in a pandemic that has killed over half a million people.
