Coronavirus outbreak: WHO says "Europe is now epicentre of pandemic" | FULL

The World Health Organization’s (WHO) director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Friday that Europe had now become the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak, with more daily cases being reported than at the height of the outbreak in China, where the virus first began. He added that more than 123,000 cases had been reported, with 5,000 deaths.

Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove said that the timing of when the COVID-19 virus would peak globally was not easy to predict, however the trajectory of the coronavirus in each country would depend on how they respond and how they react to their first cases. She also said that the timing of the virus peaking in countries dealing with independent clusters would depend on how they look for the chains of transmission within the clusters.

Tedros also announced anyone could now donate to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, saying they were originally relying on governmental donations, but now the general public can also contribute. He said this would help with co-ordination to combat the virus, purchase more medical equipment, and invest in research and development.

  • God of Israel, may you forgive us our sins. In this time of worldwide crisis, help us to realize our sins, complacencies and insensitiveness to the poor. I beseech thee in tears, to heal our land from this virus. Not for the reason that we may continue sinning but, to be a repentant and changed person. I bow my knees and beg thee in the name of your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ.
