‘WHO warns coronavirus pandemic is speeding up as countries ease lockdown rules: The worst is yet to come'
"Although many countries have made some progress, globally, the pandemic is actually speeding up," WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus
"The single most important intervention is ... tracing and quarantine contacts," he said. "Six months since the virus started, it could be like a broken record to say exactly the same thing, but the same thing works. Test, test, isolate, quarantine cases."
"The worst is yet to come" as many nations and world leaders remain divided on how to combat the virus, Tedros said. "I'm sorry to say that, but with this kind of environment and condition, we fear the worst. And that's why we have to bring our acts together and fight this dangerous virus together."

The virus is moving around the globe.
As cases in the U.S. have continued to increase, the average age of patients has declined, according to state officials in Florida, Texas and elsewhere. Some state officials say that’s why Covid-19 deaths have dropped even as cases surge since the virus is more fatal in older populations.
Infections will rise, it's respiratory illness with just the right efficacy to live within it's host (Humans). We cannot stop it and control measure do not kill it. If it's sweeping through the populous stats lead us to believe most will be asymptomatic. It's the vulnerable that need to be careful.
If the number of younger healthy people who are hospitalised and begin dying rises then the data is incorrect or the virus has mutated.
Control measures damage other concerns, re health, education and economic.
The only other thing spreading faster than the virus is societal induced panic via misleading information.
