WHO reports largest single-day increase in coronavirus cases

SourceCNN

CNN: Tedros Adhanom-Ghebreyesus, director-general of the World Health Organization, on Wednesday said that more cases had been reported to the agency in the last 24 hours than any time since the novel coronavirus outbreak began.

“We still have a long way to go in this pandemic,” Tedros said at a briefing in Geneva. “In the last 24 hours, there have been 106,000 cases reported to WHO – the most in a single day since the outbreak began. Almost two-thirds of these cases were reported in just four countries.”
Those four countries, WHO infectious disease epidemiologist Maria Van Kerkhove confirmed to CNN in an email, are: the United States, Russia, Brazil and India.

It is important to note: There can be delays in reporting at many points in the process, so this single-day record does not mean that these 106,000 people were infected, tested or counted in the last 24 hours.

CNN exclusively relies on Johns Hopkins University for its case and death counts, but the world’s preeminent health agency making this announcement today is newsworthy.

  6. HELLO CHECK OUT PRIME MINISTER OPENING THE BOARDERS FOR U.S. TRAVELERS , THE MOST INFECTED PLACE IN THE WORKPLD RIGHT NOW. NO CANADIANS ALLOWED NEVER HEARED SUCH NONSENCE. ST LUCIA FINISH AFTER THAT DECISION. BUT THEY HAVE TO SHOW PROOF OF NEGATIVE COVID-19 TEST, NEWS FLASH PEOPLE WHO DONT SHOW SYMTOMS DONT GET TESTED.

    • They need to push Chastanet out. He has allowed himself to be used as part of an experiment by the US and Bill Gates foundation to fork up everybody. The thing is, he probably know that Canada will tell him to fork off with his COVID certificate. And so will people in the UK. the man is ignorant and walking blind. We cant have a clueless white man leading this black country who dont understand these broader agendas by his whites. And I see that those in the media and those advising him, also have no clue as to what is really going on with this corona and what these people are trying to do. And you have a clueless media in St lucia that more ignorant than the people they trying to give information to. Soon you will need that certificate to eat pal.

  7. Chastanet has allowed the island of st lucia to become a pilot project for the mark of the beast covid certificate where you can’t travel into the island without a covid free certificate . and guess what country it has opened to first? the US. find out what the rastas say about this place in their religion. This is disturbing that you need a covid certificate to come to this place. this is madness. better he had keep the island closed until July like every other country before trying to implement his mark of the beast. This is the story: https://www.mirror.co.uk/travel/news/st-lucia-hotel-guests-temperature-22060241 If this is the direction you are going Chastanet. You will have to go next year as soon as election is called. We dont want babylon in this country and you will not make it so. And St lucia news you have a business of not printing people’s comments as part of free speech. they want to make your nation babylon. you better stand up to the white beast.
