The continuous coronavirus flare-up has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. The virus has spread all globally but the leader of the health organization said nations can still turn the tide. Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said, “All countries can still change the course of this pandemic.” The WHO says more than 100,000 individuals around the world have been wiped out due to the infection and there have been more than 4,000 deaths.
World Health Organization is profoundly concerned by the disturbing levels of the coronavirus spread, seriousness and inaction and anticipates seeing the number of cases, deaths and influenced nations. In this manner, they made the appraisal that COVID19 can be characterized as pandemic. Depicting the circumstance as a pandemic does not change WHO’s assessment of the danger postured by this coronavirus.
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director General at World Health Organization, “This is the first pandemic caused by a coronavirus. We cannot say this loudly enough, or clearly enough, or often enough: all countries can still change the course of this pandemic. This is the first pandemic that can be controlled. We’re in this together, to do the right things with calm & protect the citizens of the world. It’s doable. The WHO has taken stock of the number of cases across the world and assessed the rate at which cases of COVID-19 cases are spreading.”
Tomás Pueyo, VP Growth at Course Hero, San Francisco, California stated “With the number of known coronavirus cases today in South Korea, Italy, Iran, France, Spain, the US, Switzerland, Japan, Norway, Denmark, Netherlands, Sweden and the UK, Wuhan was already in lockdown.” World Health Organization stated “In the days and weeks ahead, we expect to see the number of COVID19 cases, the number of deaths, and the number of affected countries climbs even higher. WHO has been assessing this outbreak around the clock and we are deeply concerned both by the alarming levels of spread and severity and by the alarming levels of inaction. We have therefore assessed that COVID-19 can be characterized as a pandemic.”
World Health Organization (WHO) repeats call for urgent and forceful action as infection spreads to 114 nations. WHO has expressed that characterising the coronavirus outbreak as a pandemic does not change their reaction, not one or the other does it change what nations ought to do to contain the spread of the infection.
