[...3] WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros, in his regular media briefing yesterday, highlighted 'As lockdowns in Europe ease with declining numbers of new cases, we continue to urge countries to find, isolate, test and treat all cases of COVID-19 and trace every contact, to ensure these declining trends continue'.
