Published

World Health Organization has now officially declared the novel coronavirus as pandemic as it already infected more than 121,000 people from Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and the US.

Basically, all over the world.

According to the WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghehebreyesus during a press conference at a quarter in Geneva “In the past two weeks the number of cases outside China has increased thirteenfold and the number of affected countries has tripled.”

In the past two weeks, the number of cases outside China has increased thirteenfold and the number of affected countries has tripled

Since the H1N1, this has been the first time that the WHO has called such an outbreak a pandemic, that was in 2009. He raised to the highest level of the emergency. Countries are urged to do some actions to stop the disease.

According to him, “WHO has been in full response mode since we were notified of the first cases. And we have called every day for countries to take urgent and aggressive action. We have rung the alarm bell loud and clear.”
More than 1,000 infected cases have been reported every day including the US for the COVID-19.

The coronavirus number has folded to 120,000 worldwide including China, making it a pandemic.

“In the past two weeks, the number of cases of COVID-19 outside China has increased 13-fold, and the number of affected countries has tripled,” Tedros added. “In the days and weeks ahead, we expect to see the number of cases, the number of deaths and the number of affected countries climb even higher.”

There have been different reactions by the world leaders, The WHO is “deeply concerned, both by the alarming levels of spread and severity and by the alarming levels of inaction.” He continued, “We have therefore assessed that COVID-19 can be characterized as a pandemic.”

However, he said that this should not be taken as the fight is over.
“Describing the situation as a pandemic does not change WHO’s assessment of the threat posed by the virus. It doesn’t change what WHO is doing. And it doesn’t change what countries should do.”

In Italy, more than 800 have died from the virus and the number of positive cases has been rising quickly. It is now second to China whereas Iran has 9,000 and South Korea has 7,700.

Those nations mentioned above have done quick measures to slow down the spread of the virus. “We cannot say this loudly enough, or enough, or often enough: All countries can still change the course of this pandemic,” Tedros said.

The spread of the COVID has now ballooned. According to another report of “In the Americas, Honduras, Jamaica, and Panama, are all confirming coronavirus infections for the first time. Elsewhere, Mongolia and Cyprus are also now reporting cases.”

The director-general concluded that it is up to the nations to do something about the pandemic, stop the disease, “The challenge for many countries who are now dealing with large clusters or community transmission is not whether they can do the same. It’s whether they will.”

He added, ‘ “It’s doable.”
