Despite vast improvements in countries such as China and South Korea, the World Health Organization said Tuesday the coronavirus outbreak is “far from over” in that region.   

“This is going to be a long-term battle and we cannot let down our guard. We need every country to keep responding according to their local situation,” the WHO regional director for the Western Pacific, Dr. Takeshi Kasai, said at a briefing. 

China reported one new death and 48 new cases Tuesday, none of them locally transmitted, while South Korea reported 125 new ones. 

Kasai and experts at a separate WHO briefing stressed that governments need to be taking active measures and maintain pressure to halt the spread of the respiratory infection.

He said the WHO had no evidence that the rising temperatures of the coming hot season would slow down the virus, as some had hoped, and that there was no telling how much longer the pandemic would last.

Matthew Griffith, an epidemiologist advising the WHO on its response to the virus in the region, said he was concerned that any infection spikes to come were most likely to happen in the poorest countries. Laos and Myanmar reported their first COVID-19 cases only last week, although some health experts believe they may be missing many cases for a lack of testing.
