Coronavirus Confirmed As Pandemic By World Health Organization by Cletus77(m): 7:33pm On Mar 11, 2020
The coronavirus outbreak has been labelled a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO).

WHO chief Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the number of cases outside China had increased 13-fold over the past two weeks.

He said he was "deeply concerned" by "alarming levels of inaction" over the virus.

A pandemic is a disease that is spreading in multiple countries around the world at the same time.

However, Dr Tedros said that calling the outbreak a pandemic did not mean the WHO was changing its advice about what countries should do.
He called on governments to change the course of the outbreak by taking "urgent and aggressive action".

"Several countries have demonstrated that this virus can be suppressed and controlled," he said.

"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."

Governments had to "strike a fine balance between protecting health, minimising disruption and respecting human rights".

"We're in this together to do the right things with calm and protect the citizens of the world. It's doable," he said.

This is a big threat to humanity.
The world is really passing through a terrible time.
It seems global recession is now inevitable!
But in all these things, we're more than conquerors!

Just like other pandemics, this one will soon be history!

I'll always say it, Blacks being immune to this virus is really a shock to the non-black skin undecided By now they would have been throwing eye service donations here and there in Africa.

Other pandemics claimed millions of life.

The Spanish flu

Bubonic plague.

So in comparison, Corona is child's play unless it plays on for the next six montha

Why this is more dangerous is the era we are in.
Misinformation and outright fake news circulating on social media has led to global panics and heightened tension.

Kids are not getting the virus, which is a good thing, but has anyone wondered why? Finding out why may lead to a way of preventing adults from getting it.
