Coronavirus epidemic 'far from over' in Asia - WHO


BEIJING: The coronavirus epidemic is “far from over” in the Asia-Pacific region, and current measures to curb the spread of the virus are buying time for countries to prepare for large-scale community transmissions, a WHO official said on Tuesday. Infections have now exceeded 770,000 cases worldwide, with the United States, Italy and Spain overtaking mainland China in confirmed cases. The epidemic is far from over in Asia and the Pacific. The WHO does not expect any country to be safe, as the coronavirus will eventually get everywhere, said WHO technical adviser Matthew Griffith. The focus of the epidemic is now on Europe, but that will likely shift to other regions, Griffith said.--REUTERS
