New Coronavirus Cases See Biggest Increase In Single Day — WHO Director General

WHO reports largest number of COVID-19 cases in single day

The data shared by the World Health Organization showed a spike in USA cases with 45,000 new cases reported to the organization on Tuesday, the most since the outbreak began.

While Ghebreyesus didn't specify which four countries he was talking about, the United States, Russia, Brazil and Britain account for the most confirmed cases at more than 2.3 million, according to Johns Hopkins University.

The US and United Kingdom have seen the largest numbers of deaths so much however, the United Kingdom has been coined this week by both Russian Federation and Brazil about instances. On Wednesday, Brazil saw almost 20,000 new infections in 24 hours bringing its grand total to 233,140 cases, the third-highest number of national cases in the world, according to data collated by Johns Hopkins University.

"We are very concerned about rising cases in low and middle income countries", Ghebreyesus said.

At the 73rd meeting of the World Health Assembly -its first-ever to be held virtually-delegates adopted a landmark resolution to bring the world together to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. Health is not a cost.

"To live in a secure world, guaranteeing quality health for all is not just the right choice; it's the smart choice". "It's the smart choice". With over 315,000 recorded infections, the country has the second-highest number of cases in the world after the US. This means there will be "no going back to business as usual", according to Tedros, adding the virus is still "extremely unsafe". Kim Bum-soo has more on how the World Health Organization is caught in the crossfire between the USA and China.

Oil prices drop after China abandons target for 2020 GDP amidst coronavirus
At the same time, the price of July futures for worldwide crude oil benchmark Brent crude rose 0.12 percent to $32.89 per barrel. The price signals that a USA supply glut that's sent benchmark oil spiraling in recent months may be diminishing.

"We saw that World Health Organization failed at its core mission of information sharing and transparency when member states do not act in good faith", Azar said in a Monday statement.

Meanwhile, Teros said he has received a letter from Trump, but didn't want to comment further. Tedros said he was committed to accountability and would carry out a review into the response to the pandemic. A review has been asked by member states and led to a resolution about being passed by consensus this week.

"WHO has worked day and night to coordinate the global response at all three levels of the organisation, providing technical advice, catalysing political solidarity, mobilising resources, coordinating resources and much more", he said.

Despite these concerns, the Brazilian health ministry issued new guidelines on Wednesday approving wider use of the two drugs in mild coronavirus cases.

However, while this may be true, we believe that the "comprehensive evaluation" sought by a coalition of African, European, and other countries at this week's WHO General Assembly is on point. The US ranks 16th global terms of tests per 1,000 people, ahead of South Korea.
