Coronaviru­s cases continue to decline, WHO reports:


The number of new coronaviru­s cases fell everywhere in the world last week by about 12 percent, the World Health Organizati­on said in its latest weekly review of the pandemic. The U.N. health agency reported that there were just under 4.2 million new infections last week and about 13,700 deaths — a 5 percent drop. While encouragin­g, there are no guarantees these trends will persist, said WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesu­s, adding that one person still dies of covid-19 every 44 seconds and that most of those deaths are avoidable.
