One hundred and ninety countries are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and it continues to rise in many regions.
WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said: “There will be setbacks and new challenges in the year ahead – for example new variants of Covid-19 and helping people who are tired of the pandemic continue to combat it.”
The United States has recorded the highest amount of confirmed cases at 19 million and 330,000 deaths.
