Speaking in Geneva, WHO Chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said that most cases were in just 10 countries and we were asking everyone to treat the decisions about where they go, what they do, and who they meet with.
He said COVID-19 disrupted the lives of billions across the globe and it was understandable that people wanted to get on with their lives. “But we will not be going back to the old normal,” he said.
