The World Health Organization is holding a press briefing Friday on the coronavirus pandemic, which has infected more than 32.2 million people worldwide and killed at least 983,751 people, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. World Health Organization officials have warned, however, that the virus is "not going away" and still has "a long way to burn."
"The energy has not gone out of this pandemic. There’s a lot of energy left in this spring and this can drive the pandemic forward," Dr. Mike Ryan, executive director of the WHO’s health emergencies program, said last week.
