America and Europe could be hit by up to four waves of coronavirus if it is allowed to ravage Africa, a WHO expert has warned.

Director of the World Health Organisations’s Center on Public Health and Human Rights, Professor Lawrence Gostin warned that if Covid-19 gets ‘out of control’ in African countries, Europe and the US could see second, third and even fourth waves of the illness.

Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme on Wednesday, Professor Gostin said: ‘Covid-19 is about to march through sub-Saharan Africa and perhaps the Indian subcontinent like an avalanche.Even if the United States and Europe were to get their Covid epidemics under control, if you’ve got Covid rages in other parts of the world, in this interconnected society we live in, it will come back to Europe and the United States.

“Even if the United States and Europe were to get their Covid epidemics under control, if you’ve got Covid rages in other parts of the world, in this interconnected society we live in, it will come back to Europe and the United States.

‘And in fact I could predict that if it gets out of control in these lower income countries that we will see in the US and Europe a second, and a third wave, and even a fourth wave of Covid.

‘So we’re truly only as safe as the weakest link in the global chain.’

Commenting on Donald Trump’s decision to freeze funding to the WHO, the professor predicted the move could have a ‘devastating impact globally’.

    WHO is useless, they encouraged travel even tho’ other officials didn’t and disease spread all over.
