The World Health Organization (WHO) has announced the pandemic of the new Chinese coronavirus Covid-19 in the world. WHO Director-General Tedros Adhan Ghebreyesus stated this at a press conference, according to the organization’s Twitter page.
A pandemic is not a word that should be used easily or carelessly. This is a word that, if used improperly, can cause unreasonable fear or unjustified recognition that the struggle is over, which leads to unnecessary suffering and death,” - Gebreyesus.
WHO has conducted outbreak assessments around the clock and is concerned about the alarming rate of spread and complexity of the disease, as well as the level of inactivity.
