With the number of deaths worldwide from the novel coronavirus surpassing 500,000, the World Health Organization [WHO] warned Monday that the pandemic “is not even close to being over.”  

"Although many countries have made some progress, the pandemic is accelerating," WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said during a virtual news conference. 

Six months after China first alerted the agency to a new respiratory infection, the grim milestone of 10 million confirmed infections has been reached. 

In Latin America, the coronavirus continues to rage. Brazil, Peru, Chile and Mexico are among the most affected countries in the world.
