World Health Organization advance team concludes China groundwork mission to identify COVID-19 origins

Street market reopens in Brazil

"Travel increases your chances of getting and spreading Covid-19", she said, adding young people are more likely to go to work in the community, to a beach or the pub, or to buy groceries.

Tedros said worldwide epidemiologists had laid the groundwork to retrace the origins of the coronavirus in Wuhan, China.

"We've said this before and we'll say it again: young people are not invincible", World Health Organization director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a news briefing in Geneva last week.

But the WHO's emergencies chief said no evidence had been provided.

Mr Ryan said countries with high transmission rates, including Brazil and India, needed to brace for a big battle: "The way out is long and requires a sustained commitment", he said, calling for a "reset" of approach in some places. "We may not have a vaccine that may work, or its protection could be for just a few months, not more ..."

Experts have suggested that life as we knew it prior to the outbreak won't return until a vaccine for the virus is found and distributed around the world.

"Some countries are really going to have to take a step back now and really take a look at how they are addressing the pandemic within their national borders", he added.

Wuhan is not necessarily the place where the COVID-19 disease crossed from animals into humans, said a senior World Health Organization expert.

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

With infections and deaths soaring, the United Nations health agency has said the coronavirus pandemic is likely to be protracted and warned of possible "response fatigue".

On Friday, the WHO's emergency committee on covid-19 met and reviewed the current pandemic.

The number of deaths from coronavirus in Iran is almost three times higher than Iran's government claims, a BBC Persian service investigation has found.

Meanwhile, in Europe at least 41 passengers and crew on a Norwegian cruise ship have tested positive for COVID-19.

"We hope that as the time we get into the late fall and early winter we will have, in fact, a vaccine that we can say would be safe and effective", Fauci said.

Tedros, who remarked on his own use of a face mask and hand sanitizer, reminded that "it's about keeping physical distance, wearing a mask, cleaning hands regularly and coughing safely away from others".
