Written by thereachfm on March 12, 2020
World Health Organisation says the new coronavirus outbreak can now be characterised as a pandemic.
WHO chief Tedros Ghebreyesus said the spread of the coronavirus is frightening.
Ghebreyesus said the organisation is deeply concerned both by the alarming levels of spread and severity and by the alarming levels of inaction.
The WHO defines a pandemic as a situation in which the whole world’s population would likely be exposed to this infection and potentially a proportion of them fall sick.
