‘We cannot live with 15,000 deaths a week’: WHO says with rise in global COVID-19 fatalities

The World Health Organization (WHO) warned that the number of deaths from COVID-19 was on the rise globally, with 15,000 people having died from the virus in the last week alone. "We cannot live with 15,000 deaths a week," WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said during a briefing on Wednesday, adding with colder temperatures approaching in the northern hemisphere, risk factors would increase with more people spending time inside.
