Before an effective coronovirus vaccine was available, the virus could kill 2 million people worldwide. The World Health Organization (WHO) itself expressed such apprehension on Friday. But Mike Ryan, the agency’s head of emergency operations, said the number could rise if action was not taken internationally. The UK-based news outlet BBC reported this news.
“We’re seeing alarming levels of infection over a large area,” Ryan said.
In December 2019, coronavirus spread from Wuhan, the capital of Hubei Province, China. Although more than 63,000 people have been infected in the country of origin, China, the spread of the virus has decreased. However, the prevalence of the virus is increasing in other countries of the world. The World Health Organization (WHO) declared a global epidemic on 11 March in view of a 13-fold increase in the incidence of coronovirus outside China.
The transition to the two continents of America and South Asia is still growing rapidly. On the other hand, the corona is slightly stable in Europe, but there is a new outbreak of the disease. However, there is hope that the recovery rate is now increasing rapidly after the outbreak.
According to WorldMeters, the United States has had the highest number of victims and deaths so far. The total number of victims is 72 lakh 6 thousand 69. Two lakh seven thousand 923 people have died.
