The organization's director-general, Tadros Adhanum Gebresos, said at a press conference that the organization would like to see the restrictions loosened, but at the same time, lifting the restrictions could lead to a deadly return to the virus.

He added that there is a "slowdown" in the spread of the epidemic in some European countries, especially Italy, Germany, Spain and France, but there is a "worrying acceleration" in the spread in other countries, and that includes community infection in 16 African countries.
