However, Ryan said that what countries should now focus on is finishing the hospitalizations, the deaths and the tragedy associated with the coronavirus pandemic.

“We need to focus on what our targets are, we should be targeting getting our hospitalization down to the lowest number possible, targeting getting deaths down, targeting getting cases down.” Said Dr. Ryan.

Adding that “when we get to those low numbers, we will be in control of the virus”

Globally, 114 million people have contracted coronavirus. 64.6 million have recovered, while unfortunately, 2.45 million have died
