Number of foreign Coronavirus surpasses China, WHO says US virus testing lags behind global counterparts

The World Health Organization announced on the 16th that the cumulative number of confirmed cases of new coronary pneumonia outside China has exceeded the number in China. The most effective way to prevent infection and save lives is to break the virus transmission chain. 



Don't cover your eyes to fight the fire, you must test every suspected case. "No one can cover their eyes with fire. If you don't know who has been infected, you can't stop the pandemic," said WHO Director-General Tedsee. "We send a simple message to all countries: detection, Test, test! Test every suspected case! "

The agency pointed out that as of now, it has sent a total of 150 kits to 120 countries or regions, but the United States lags behind its global counterparts particularly in testing. According to WHO, the United States rejected WHO's plan and chose to develop its own tests, but encountered trouble at the beginning.


According to data from last week, even if the CDC distributes the kits based on the testing data of private laboratories, the United States still lags far behind the United Kingdom, Italy, China, South Korea and other regions in the per capita detection rate.


The World Health Organization says that even in developed countries with advanced medical systems and institutions, epidemics can pose great challenges. But as the epidemic spreads to underdeveloped low-income countries, the world will face greater threats. In order to limit the impact of the epidemic on vulnerable groups, it is important to involve everyone in every country and region in order to prevent the spread of the disease as much as possible.



For everyone affected by the epidemic, Dr Maria Van Kerkhove, WHO's head of epidemic prevention and control technology and epidemiologist, believes that everyone should face fear, remember to wash their hands and take precautions.
