RPT-WHO reports most coronavirus cases in a day, worried about poor countries

GENEVA, May 20 (Reuters) - There were 106,000 new cases of new coronavirus infection recorded worldwide in the last 24 hours - the most in a single day yet, the World Health Organization said on Wednesday, expressing concern for poor countries even as rich ones emerge from lockdown.

“We still have a long way to go in this pandemic,” WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a news conference. “We are very concerned about rising cases in low and middle income countries.” (Writing by Peter Graff; Editing by Hugh Lawson)
