The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned the worst could still be to come in the COVID-19 pandemic.

WHO leader Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus warned the virus would infect many more people if governments did not start to implement the right policies.

He said his message remains “Test, Trace, Isolate and Quarantine”.

More than 10 million cases have been recorded and 500,000 people have died since the coronavirus emerged in China last year.

The virus is now spreading rapidly in Latin America and is also badly affecting South Asia and Africa.
