Dr Tedros talks about a peak in coronavirus cases - 22 June 2020

It seems that almost every day we reach a new & grim record of COVID-19 cases:

-Over 183k new cases were reported on 21 June 2020
-Over 8.8 million cases have now been reported globally & almost half a million people have lost their lives.

We continue to urge all countries to double down on the fundamental public health measures that we know work:

1. Finding and testing suspected COVID-19 cases
2. Isolating and caring for the sick
3. Tracing and quarantining contacts
4. Protecting healthworkers

At the same time, COVID-19 public health measures can only be effective if each and every individual takes the measures that we also know work to protect themselves and others:

1. Maintain physical distance
2. Continue cleaning your hands
3. Wear a mask where appropriate
