The World Health Organisation warned that most countries were still in the early stages of tackling the coronavirus pandemic and that the infection will persist for a long time to come. There were "worrying upward trends" in early epidemics in parts of Africa, Central and South America and Eastern Europe, Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told journalists in a virtual briefing.

"Most countries are still in the early stages of their epidemics and some that were affected early in the pandemic are starting to see a resurgence in cases," he added. "Make no mistake: we have a long way to go. This virus will be with us for a long time."

Tedros said while social distancing measures put in place in numerous countries to slow the spread of the coronavirus have been successful, the virus still remains "extremely dangerous". "Early evidence suggests most of the world's population remains susceptible," he added. "That means epidemics can easily re-ignite."

The health organisation further said that the world will not and cannot go back to the way things were before the epidemic. "People in countries with stay-at-home orders are understandably frustrated with being confined to their homes for weeks on end," Tedros said. "People understandably want to get on with their lives, because their lives and livelihoods are at stake. That's what WHO wants too. And that's what we are working for, all day, every day. There must be a "new normal" – a world that is healthier, safer and better prepared."
