The fight against the coronavirus will not be over “until there is no virus anywhere in the world,” according to World Health Organization (WHO) spokesperson Dr. Margaret Harris.
Speaking at a press briefing in Geneva, Harris confirmed that there have been “upticks” of the virus in countries which have eased measures, but she said that she was “not talking specifically about Europe”.
“When the lockdowns ease, when the social distancing measures ease, people sometimes interpret this as 'OK, it's over." she said.
The World Health Organization has continually affirmed that countries easing measures should do so gradually and cautiously.
