On Monday (June 8) the World Health Organization warned that the coronavirus pandemic -- is still worsening globally.
More than 136,000 cases were reported worldwide on Sunday (June 7), the most in a single day so far.
That announcement comes just as countries like New Zealand, which no longer has any active coronavirus cases, further relax their stay-at-home restrictions.
Technical lead Maria Van Kerkhove urged countries not to let down their guard too quickly.
"So let's celebrate the successes that we do have but let's remain focused on the remaining work that needs to be done because unfortunately this is far from over."
The WHO noted that the pandemic had not yet hit its peak in places like Central America, where infections are still on the rise.
Brazil is now one of the hotspots of the pandemic, with the second highest number of infections, only behind the United States.
More than 7 million people have been infected globally -- and over 400,000 have died.
