Global coronavirus cases climbed over 900,000 on Wednesday, just one day after the number of diagnosed cases topped 800,000.

World Health Organization Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said Wednesday he’s “deeply concerned about the rapid escalation and global spread of infection.”

“Over the past five weeks, we have witnessed a near exponential growth in the number of new COVID-19 cases, reaching almost every country, territory and area,” he said.

He noted that the death toll has more than doubled in the past week and projected that in the next few days “we will reach 1 million confirmed COVID-19 cases, and 50,000 deaths.”
