When the U.S. lifts travel restrictions in 5 countries and 39 states, the WHO said the global new crown epidemic was worsening
On June 8, World Health Organization Director General Tan Desai said that the global new crown epidemic situation is deteriorating. On June 7, the world’s single-day new 136,000 cases of new coronary pneumonia were the most new cases in the world so far. Tan Desai said that countries have reported nearly 7 million new crown cases and nearly 400,000 deaths to WHO. The European epidemic situation has improved, but globally, the new crown epidemic situation has continued to deteriorate. In the past 10 days, there have been more than 100,000 newly confirmed cases in 9 days. On June 7, the number of new cases reached 136,000, setting a new record.
Tan Desai said that nearly 75% of the new cases on June 7 came from 10 countries, most of which were concentrated in the Americas and South Asia. In addition, the number of cases in Eastern European, Central Asian, and African countries is also increasing, and the epidemic has spread. According to the World Health Organization’s daily epidemic statistics report on June 7 and 8, the United States and Brazil are the countries with the most newly diagnosed cases each day.
