WHO Records Highest Daily Number Of COVID-19 Cases

WHO Records Highest Daily Number Of COVID-19 Cases

He alluded to a resolution passed Tuesday by the WHO's assembly calling on its director-general, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, to launch "comprehensive evaluation" of the WHO-coordinated worldwide response to the outbreak to begin "at the earliest appropriate moment".

President Trump has threatened to withdraw the USA from the group and permanently cut off all funding to the agency.

Tedros, for his part, spoke to the board and pointed proudly to a long list of actions taken by World Health Organization to respond to the outbreak - without directly alluding to the Trump administration pressure that was highlighted by Giroir.

"The landmark resolution underlines WHO's key role in promoting access to safe, effective health technologies to fight the pandemic", he said.

Ryan said: "In a sense, South America has become a new epicentre for the disease".

The WHO chief said if the resolution is implemented, it would ensure a more coherent, coordinated and fairer response that saves both lives and livelihoods. Nearly two million patients have fully recovered.

We are relieved that the United Nation's World Health Organization (WHO) has agreed to launch an independent evaluation of how it managed the global response to the novel coronavirus outbreak.

Senate Republicans issue first subpoena in Obama-era probes
In a letter to the panel Wednesday, Blue Star said there was no reason a subpoena would be necessary. He plans to issue a report in the coming months.

The latest figures from World Health Organization come amid an increase in testing throughout the globe along with a relaxation in lockdown rules in numerous countries from Europe to the United States, as well as middle and low-income economies such as Brazil, India and Indonesia, as pressure grows to reopen businesses and restore economies.

Pressed on the ultimatum, Tedros said only: "We have received the letter and we are looking into it".

"The COVID-19 pandemic today reached a milestone in Africa, with more than 100,000 confirmed cases".

Brazil's health ministry has recommended using the anti-malaria drugs chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine to treat even mild cases of COVID-19 - treatments President Jair Bolsonaro has pushed for despite the lack of conclusive evidence of their effectiveness.

"This review will ensure we have a complete and transparent understanding of the source, timeline of events, and decision-making process for the WHO's response to the COVID-19 pandemic", wrote Giroir, who is one of the board's 34 global members. Some 3,000 patients are taking part in the trials in 320 hospitals across 17 countries.

The majority of cases in Brazil are in the Sao Paulo region, Ryan said, adding that the states of Rio de Janeiro, Ceara, Amazonas and Pernambuco have been affected as well.
