Despite a hundred days has passed, neither any vaccine has been prepared yet nor any effective medicine has been found to deal with it. During a press conference on Thursday, the World Health Organization director Tedros Adhonum Ghibrias described these hundred days as a breakthrough.
He said that the global economy has been badly affected by this transformation. Along with this, the social structure in the infected countries is also disorganized.
