Corona is getting worse … and “WHO” warns of running out of oxygen

The World Health Organization has warned that the number of “Covid-19” infections will reach 10 million by next week, at a time when the epidemic has not reached its peak in some areas of the Americas.
“During the first month of this epidemic, the World Health Organization recorded 10,000 cases, and during the past month, 4 million cases were recorded, and we expect to reach 10 million cases next week,” WHO Director-General Tidros Adhanom Gebresos announced in a video conference. .
The UN official indicated that the most effective way to save lives is to provide oxygen to patients who need it, warning that the demand for medical oxygen now exceeds supply.
He said that medical oxygen for patients with severe symptoms of “Covid-19” is running out.
According to WHO estimates, the world currently needs about 620,000 cubic meters of oxygen per day.
