Agency News

The World Health Organisation has said that after the European Union, South East Asia is the most dangerous as this region is facing a wave of infections.

The WHO is calling for more "aggressive" action to curb the coronavirus in Southeast Asia, after the European Union.

"More clusters of virus transmission are being confirmed," Poonam Khetrapal Singh, WHO's regional director, said. "We clearly need to do more, and urgently."

Southeast Asia is facing a wave of infections that began at an event at a mosque on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur that was attended by some 16,000 people. Malaysia now has the biggest outbreak in the region and on Wednesday sealed the country's borders and closed schools, officers and all but essential businesses.
