▴ WHO says COVID-19 can be controlled like in Mumbai
"There are many, many examples from around the world," said Tedros, that even if the COVID-19 outbreak is "very intense, it can still be brought back under control".

The World Health Organization said Friday that it is as yet conceivable to manage coronavirus episodes, despite the fact that case numbers have dramatically increased in the previous month and a half.

WHO boss Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the instances of Italy, Spain, South Korea, and India's greatest ghetto demonstrated that anyway awful a flare-up was, the infection could, in any case, be gotten control over through forceful activity.

"Over the most recent a month and a half cases have dramatically increased," Tedros told a virtual question and answer session in Geneva.

In any case, "there are numerous models from around the globe that have demonstrated that regardless of whether the flare-up is exceptional, it can, in any case, be managed back," said Tedros.

"What's more, a portion of these models are Italy, Spain, and South Korea, and even in Dharavi - a thickly stuffed territory in the megacity of Mumbai - a solid spotlight on network commitment and the rudiments of testing, following, separating and rewarding every one of those that are wiped out is critical to breaking the chains of transmission and smothering the infection."

The tale coronavirus has killed in any event 555,000 individuals worldwide since the episode rose in China last December, as indicated by a count from legitimate sources aggregated by AFP on Friday.

Almost 12.3 million cases have been enrolled in 196 nations and domains.

"Over varying backgrounds, we are for the most part being tried as far as possible," Tedros stated, "from nations where there is exponential development, to places that are extricating limitations and now beginning to see cases rise.

"Just forceful activity joined with national solidarity and worldwide solidarity can turn this pandemic around."
