Political leadership, community engagement vital for COVID-19 response: WHO Chief July 24, 2020

ISLAMABAD-World Health Organization (WHO) has highlighted that political leadership and community engagement are the two vital pillars of the response to COVID-19.

Talking during a virtual press conference, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said that although all countries have been affected, intense transmission has been seen in a relatively small group of countries. 

He said almost 10 million cases, or two-thirds of all cases globally, are from 10 countries, and almost half of all cases reported so far are from just three countries.

According to WHO, the three countries that were hit the hardest by the COVID-19 are the United States, Brazil and India.
