LONDON – The head of the World Health Organization said on Friday an alarming trend of rising Covid cases had caused infections worldwide to reach their highest level since the pandemic began.

“Worldwide cases and deaths continue to rise at a worrying rate,” WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said in a briefing on Papua New Guinea and the western Pacific.

“Globally, the number of new cases per week has almost doubled in the past two months. This is approaching the highest infection rate we’ve seen to date during the pandemic,” he continued.

“Some countries that previously avoided widespread transmission are now seeing large increases in infections,” Tedros said, citing Papua New Guinea as an example.

Tedros said the United Nations Department of Health will continue to assess developments in the coronavirus crisis and “adjust advice accordingly”.

According to international health regulations, Tedros said the WHO emergency committee met on Thursday and he expected to receive their advice on Monday.

“Globally, our message to all people in all countries remains the same. We all play a role in ending the pandemic,” he said.

To date, more than 139 million Covid cases have been reported worldwide, with 2.9 million deaths. This is based on data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.

The WHO declared the coronavirus a global pandemic on March 11th last year.
