COVID-19 cases cross 2 million mark globally

The novel coronavirus cases have crossed 2 million globally and over 130,000 have lost their lives due to deadly virus.

The United States has so far registered more than 600,000 COVID19 cases while the number of cases in Spain has crossed 170,000, followed by Italy which has over 160,000 cases. France and Germany have reported more than 130,000 cases so far.

At a White House news conference on Tuesday, US President Donald Trump had announced that he has halted funding to the World Health Organization (WHO) while a review is being conducted.

Trump said the review would cover the WHO’s role in severely mismanaging and covering up the spread of COVID-19.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said,” We regret the decision of Donald Trump to order a halt in funding to WHO. Together, we can improve the health of many of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people.”

“WHO will continue to work with every country and every partner to serve the people of the world with a relentless commitment to science, solutions and solidarity,” Ghebreyesus said.

The deadly virus which was first reported from China’s Wuhan has now affected almost all the nations across the world.
