Coronavirus Pandemic Is ‘Accelerating’ And ‘Getting Worse’ : World Health Organization Boss Warns As Number Of Cases In The World Hit Nearly 12 Million

The World Health Organisation has warned that the Coronavirus pandemic is “accelerating and getting worse” as lockdown measures are being relaxed in several countries in the world.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the director-general of the WHO, said the Covid-19 pandemic has still not reached its peak as he warned that coronavirus is not under control “in most of the world” and is in fact “getting worse”.

He said the Coronavirus cases were increasing drastically, with almost 12million confirmed infections since the pandemic first began in China back in December.

Speaking at the member state briefing on the Covid-19 pandemic evaluation, he said: “The virus has upended health systems in some of the world’s wealthiest nations, while some countries that have mounted a successful response have been of modest means.

“We know that when countries take a comprehensive approach based on fundamental public health measures – such as find, isolate, test and treat cases, and trace and quarantine contacts – the outbreak can be brought under control.

“But in most of the world, the virus is not under control. It is getting worse.

“More than 11.8 million cases of Covid-19 have now been reported to WHO. More than 544,000 lives have been lost.

“And the pandemic is still accelerating. The total number of cases has doubled in the last six weeks.”

The United States has the highest caseload and deaths in the World, with over 3 million coronavirus cases and more than 130,000 fatalities recorded so far.

We Are Not Removing NDC Supporters Names From Voters Register : EC Refutes John Mahama’s ‘Unfounded Allegations’

Published

The Electoral Commission (EC) has debunked claims to the effect that the Electoral Management Body is carrying out an agenda to remove the names of National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) supporters and sympathizers from the voters’ register.

The EC is asking the general public to disregard the allegations, stressing it is false. “The Commission has, from the beginning of the compilation of the Voters Register, lived up to its motto: Fairness, Transparency, and Accountability.

Indeed, at every point, we have provided factual, accurate, and evidence-based information to our Stakeholders on voter statistics per region, district, gender, age among others. To date, every interested Ghanaian has information on the number of persons who registered in the just concluded Voter Registration Exercise based on the information we provided.

“It is a paradox, therefore, to suggest that the same Commission now seeks to remove persons from the Voters Register. Had that been the agenda of the Commission, it would not have given detailed information to Stakeholders throughout the Registration process. We assure the General Public that these allegations are unfounded,” a statement by the Electoral Commission read.
