WHO Records Highest Daily Number Of COVID-19 Cases

Brazil the worst-hit country in South America registered more than 100,000 infections from the coronavirus by Sunday with more than 7,000 deaths

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.

The EU has sponsored a motion at Tuesday's session of the WHO's annual assembly to urge an "impartial, independent and comprehensive evaluation" of the global response to the pandemic.

Tedros met reporters on Wednesday at the body's headquarters in Geneva, where he merely said the World Health Organization had received the letter "and we're looking into it". "But it's also reminded us that for all our differences, we are one human race, and we are stronger together". In any event, there have always been pandemics and they appear to be happening more frequently and spreading more rapidly in our globally connected world.

He also rejected the notion that the draft resolution was equivalent to Australia's call for an independent worldwide investigation into the pandemic, something Chinese authorities oppose.

"This is not new it has been done after Ebola and it has been done after SARS and it has been done after major outbreaks so this is in WHO's DNA".

That work, also looking at the possible role of intermediate hosts, should include "scientific and collaborative field missions".

Trump to Stop Taking Hydroxychloroquine ‘In 2 Days’
The White House physician wrote on Monday that Trump is "in good health and has remained symptom-free". This story was first published on CNN .com, " Sales of drug touted by Trump have been soaring ".

He added, "We still have a long way to go in this pandemic".

The resolution "recognises the role of extensive immunisation against COVID-19 as a global public good".

It calls for the intensification of efforts to control the pandemic, and for equitable access to and fair distribution of all essential health technologies and products to combat the virus. A WHO study released last week predicted that Africa could be on the precipice of a large number of cases, which many of its countries' health systems will struggle to cope with.

Early on day one, member states unanimously made a decision to kick the can down the road on whether to grant Taiwan observer status. It's an investment. To live in a secure world, guaranteeing quality health for all is not just the right choice.

Beijing is vehemently opposed to the participation of Taiwan, which it considers part of its territory. Most state officials have warned that hospitals are becoming overwhelmed and are on the verge of collapse because of the boom in new cases. Keva Bain, The Bahamas' permanent representative to the UN, who presided over the 73rd World Health Assembly, proposed that the issue be kept for later in the year, as opposed to during the two-day summit, something she said the nations consented to.
