UN Botswana COVID19 Response newsletter-09

September 16, 2020

COVID-19 pandemic isn’t over Nearly ten months after the new coronavirus first emerged, the COVID-19 pandemic is “not even close to being over”, the head of the World Health Organization (WHO) Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has warned. Dr. Ghebreyesus called for renewed global commitment to save lives as cases surpass 10 million worldwide, with 500,000 deaths, and as the virus continues to spread. Botswana has witnessed a rise in local transmission cases since July 2020. The number of deaths has risen to 11. “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”, Dr. Ghebreyesus said. He added “although many countries have made some progress, globally the pandemic is actually speeding up. We’re all in this together, and we’re all in this for the long haul.”
