GENEVA : The World Health Organization (WHO) said on Wednesday that there were “worrying upward trends” in early epidemics in parts of
Africa and central and
South America, while also warning that opening up global travel needed to be managed carefully.

“Most countries are still in the early stages of their epidemics and some that were affected early in the
pandemic are starting to see a resurgence in cases,” WHO director-general
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told Geneva journalists in a virtual briefing.

“Make no mistake we have a long way to go. This virus will be with us for a long time,” he added, while noting progress in
Western Europe.

The WHO’s top emergencies expert Dr. Mike Ryan warned against opening up global travel too quickly, saying it would require “careful risk management”.
