Nearly 7,500 cases were reported last week, which is a 20 percent increase from the previous week,” Tedros said. In this sense, he has confirmed that almost all cases “come from Europe and the Americas”, and the population most at risk is that of men who have sex with men. “This underscores the importance of all countries designing and delivering tailored services and information to these communities that protect health, human rights and dignity,” Tedros warns. For this reason, he has urged States to stop transmission “using effective tools”, including the improvement of disease surveillance, contact tracing, risk communication adapted to populations and risk reduction measures. .
