The WHO said countries need more testing for coronavirus to contain it. The US has struggled to deliver on this and finds itself in a growing crisis.
World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on Wednesday, March 25, said social distancing is "buying time" but added that "on their own, these measures will not extinguish epidemics."
