Some progress made, but pandemic is speeding up: Tedros
"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. Although many countries have made some progress globally, the pandemic is actually speeding up," he commented.
WHO's team will finally visit China to study virus's source
Tedros, who has been ridiculed for siding with China, announced that a team will visit the country to probe the outbreak's origins.
Announcing the move, which came six months too late, Tedros said, "We can fight the virus better when we know everything about the virus, including how it started. We will be sending a team next week to China to prepare for that."
