Meanwhile, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has said the worst of the Covid-19 is yet to be seen. This was declared by its Director-General Tedros Ghebreyesus, noting that the virus would infect many more people if governments did not start to implement the right policies.

Mr Ghebreyesus while speaking during a media briefing said: “Six months ago, none of us could have imagined how our world – and our lives – would be thrown into turmoil by this new virus.”

“We all want this to be over. We all want to get on with our lives. But the hard reality is this is not even close to being over,” he said. “Although many countries have made some progress, globally the pandemic is actually speeding up.”
