The World Health Organization is holding a briefing Friday on the coronavirus, which has infected more than 3.2 million people worldwide and killed at least 233,704, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.

Earlier this week, WHO officials said they are investigating whether the coronavirus causes some children to develop a rare inflammatory disease.

Health officials in the U.K. warned doctors over the weekend that Covid-19 could be causing a rare inflammatory condition in children. Britain's Pediatric Intensive Care Society said Monday the National Health Service alerted it to a small number of critically ill children presenting with "an unusual clinical picture."

WHO also warned world leaders last week that they will need to manage around the coronavirus for the foreseeable future as cases level off or decline in some countries, while peaking in others and resurging in areas where the Covid-19 pandemic appeared to be under control.
