WHO update

WHO case count: 39,620 cases and 167 deaths. That's only 3692 additional cases and 4 additional deaths since the the last update, almost 48 hours ago. Most likely, countries are beginning to report cases more slowly as the numbers go up. CDC had moved from reporting cases daily, to reporting Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and is now reporting cases on a weekly basis. Now that CDC reports cases on Fridays, we'll like see jumps in WHO's numbers on Mondays.

Canada and Chile posted the biggest increase in numbers, with Yemen, Jordan, Sri Lanka, and several Caribbean and Pacific Island nations confirming their first cases.
