Coronavirus outbreak: World Health Organization raises global risk of spread to 'very high'



The World Health Organization spoke Friday about the latest developments in the COVID-19 outbreak, as more cases continue to be reported both inside and outside China.

Director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Friday that the risk of spread and impact of the COVID-19 virus had been raised to “very high” on a global level. He did add, however, that most cases can be traced to existing cases, and there is no evidence yet the virus is spreading freely in communities.

On Thursday, officials expressed concerns that the world had reached a “decisive point” in the outbreak with more new cases being reported outside China than in, and advised countries must take “aggressive” steps in order to contain the illness be fore it spreads further.

  1. Obviously, there is a hidden agenda behind this entire situation…possibly more than one hidden agenda. All of us regular folks will be left to prepare and take of ourselves. Self reliance can be a positive mindset to embrace and grow from. Don't fear, use common sense and TAKE ACTION!

  2. Well thanks for the update Captain Obvious, my burning question is that how the hell did Sierra Leone and Liberia managed to contain the Ebola outbreak two years ago and they don't even have the quarter of the economic power of China. I don't think its do with lack of infrastructure in China. it was the fact, that the Chinese Government willfully covered up the virus to make it seem everything was alright, they lied to their own citizens and the global community. Hell, I bet they even greased the palms of the top WHO representatives to tone down the damned virus. And now look, what could've of been contained like SARS is now spreading, at an unstoppable rate. Sure, we won't let fear take over, but I want the people who are responsible for this to be accountable…looking at your Xi Ping (for lying to world about this)… World Health Organization (for being incompetent as usual)….

  3. Without pointing fingers, it is important to eradicate certain practices that increases possibilities of pathogens spreads re: unmonitored meat markets.

  4. They said we already have a coronavirus patient here in California, with no known origin. the person never left the country. so I'm thinking, maybe  it could be packages from china via ebay or any online sales coming from china. because the experts say that the virus can live on any surface for 9 days.

  5. Is that we use the comments section to share our deepest darkest fears and voice irrational thoughts? So many useful points were shared. Can't we comment on what each of us will do to make a positive impact? Or is it that the negativity is a sign that many have given up hope. Well, I ain't giving up I am arming myself with facts and the best science to overcome. We all should. Hope and positivity exists if we choose to see it.

    Many thanks to WHO and the many global public health entities who are equipping the world and making a positive difference. We appreciate your dedication and sacrifice. One love from Jamaica.

  6. [Tracing the source of the Coronavirus, this information cannot be ignored]

    ① Japan's Asahi Shimbun questioned the U.S. flu that broke out for several months as a Coronavirus;

    ② Dr. Paul Cottrell of the United States sent a video saying that according to sources inside the CDC, the number of people diagnosed with the Coronavirus in the United States has exceeded 1,000 cases, and the CDC is deliberately hiding the truth;

    ③ Daniel Lucy, an infectious disease expert at Georgetown University in the United States, wrote in Science that the first human infection must have occurred before November 2019;

    ④ International studies have shown that Coronavirus contains 5 groups of genomes and 58 haplotypes. The United States occupies all 5 groups of transmission, China only occupies 3 groups without genetic recombination, and 2 groups have nothing to do with the South China seafood market;

    ⑤ A Japanese man was diagnosed as positive for Coronavirus after visiting Hawaii, and the person has not been to China recently;

    ⑥Recently, there have been multiple infections in Italy, South Korea, and Iran that have no clear association with China;

    The US media reported that the FBI had already ordered a large number of 3M company masks and other protective supplies;

    Do not say that it was caused by China, China has made the most correct measures.

  7. Dr Michael yes we have to find out who’s at fault/made this horrible virus .
    Tedros is a Prostitute for the Communist Party of China/ 100 percent criminal

  9. I’m Canadian 🇨🇦 and I’m scared, mostly for the world and issues of racism against Asian heritage people. This virus shouldn’t have a race, it’s now a world issue. China did what other countries haven’t had the guts to do….even now. We’re not going to survive this without more information.

  10.
