WHO: The Pandemic Is Accelerating

Home / News / WHO: The Pandemic Is Accelerating
A pandemic is spreading around the world at an increasing rate. According to the Director General of the World Health Organization Tedros Adhan Ghebreyesus, “it took 67 days from the first reported case to reach 100 thousand cases, 11 days for the second 100,000 cases, and just four days for the third 100,000 cases”. As of Monday evening, March 23, there are 373 positive cases around the world. More than 20 potential anti-COVID-19 drugs are under development. The effectiveness of some of them can probably be judged fairly confidently in April. At the same time, it is very difficult to find a cure for viral infection for many reasons: an example is the usual flu, which cannot be treated due to the lack of effective drugs. Even if a cure for coronavirus is found, it will take another months, it will not help everyone, and its side effects will be significant. In the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, humanity will have to rely on its own immunity and quarantine measures, as well as hope for success in the vaccine development. What vaccines are being developed and whether they can be ready soon, Radio Liberty will tell in its publication on March 24, on Tuesday.
