Around 3,4% of all reported cases of COVID-19 died around the world from a new strain of coronavirus. In comparison, less than 1% of those infected usually die from seasonal flu.

According to the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) Tedros Adhanom Gebreyesus, the words of which are cited RIA News", coronavirus does not spread as effectively as the flu, while only 1% of patients do not have symptoms of the disease, or begin to feel them within two days. There are differences with the flu, so COVID-19 cannot be treated in the same way.

According to WHO estimates, in order to prevent the spread of a new strain of coronavirus, the world needs 89 million protective masks every month, as well as 76 million pairs of gloves and 1,6 million pairs of glasses.

Recently, the WHO Director-General called on the world community to prepare for a possible pandemic of the coronavirus. In his opinion, there is no universal approach to combating COVID-19, therefore, each state needs to assess risks based on its own context.
