At a coronavirus briefing in Geneva, World Health Organization (WHO) officials confirmed more than half a million positive cases and more than 20,000 deaths from the virus worldwide. WHO’s director-general also announced the first patients in a historic drug trial to test treatments. He added that a vaccine to prevent coronavirus was still likely 12 to 18 months away.
