Companies Charges $2,340 For COVID-19 Treatment, WHO Alerts More Difficult Times Yet To Come

World Health Organization has released a message warning that the worse is yet to befall humanity as the deadly COVID-19 pandemic continues to increase on a daily basis

So many nations have continued to experience a rise of the Corona Virus every day and most of the countries are beginning to implement the lock down strategy to curtail the spread of the virus.

China has locked down over half a million people in Beijing so that the virus will not spread to some other part of the country, The Federal Government of Nigeria through the presidential Task Force (PTF) has ordered the state government to implement the lock down in the Local government areas where there is an increase of confirmed cases of Corona Virus to contain the further spread of the disease.

The absence of world solidarity and the vulnerability of many people to the disease, that has a lot more space to spread around the world.

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the Director General of the World Health Organization made this known to the world during a virtual chat in Geneva on Monday, June 29, 2020.

He said that Corona Virus is seriously spreading and it’s quite on the increase in so many countries. He stated that about fifty percent of death are happening in the American continent. Iran has reached the peak of the it’s death toll and countries like South Korea, China, And Australia are experiencing much new cases.

Tedros Adhanom, the WHO in his briefing said that the most important thing is tracing the actual contacts of the Corona Virus because that’s the only way to fight the virus, In that case any country that has failed to trace the contacts of the deadly virus ,has no excuse at all to fail because if the government do, that means she has failed her citizens

Countries like Germany, Japan, and South Korea have successfully dealt with contact tracing, So therefore any country that complains that contact tracing is difficult is only giving an unnecessary and lame excuse he noted. He was also confident that the virus can be suppressed and controlled with the help of the equipment available, so she said no country should wait for vaccine to deal with the virus.

Under an extreme situation, South Korea has managed to track all the contacts that have the infection and brought them to book.

He further threw more light on how, many countries have tried to contain the pandemic but it is fast increasing.

Gilead Science Incorporated, a biopharmaceutical company released a statement saying that the company will charge the U.S Government and other advanced countries $390 per vial or $2,340 for a typical 5 day course treatment for the fight against the disease.

The WHO Director General has promised to send a group of researchers to China next week, to find out the source of this deadly virus. This is as a result of the series of criticisms the U.S government led by Trump who is in charge channelled towards WHO management over the virus, the researchers are heading to far east next week because China is where the Index case first occurred.
