The World Health Organization (WHO) has officially declared the outbreak of novel coronavirus disease, COVID-19, a pandemic. WHO director-general Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus made the announcement at a press conference Wednesday.

“Over the past two weeks, the number of cases of COVID-19 outside China has increased thirteenfold and the number of affected countries has tripled,” he said. “In the days and weeks ahead, we expect to see the number of cases, the number of deaths and the number of affected countries climb even higher,” he said.

“In the days and weeks ahead, we expect to see the number of cases, the number of deaths and the number of affected countries climb even higher,” Tedros said. “We’re deeply concerned both by the alarming spread and severity, and the alarming levels of inaction.”

For these reasons, he said, the WHO determined that the disease outbreak should be called a pandemic.

  1. Is WHO only for getting 'alarmed' and 'concerned'? What have u done to help the world in containing it? U failed absolutely in alerting and advising the world timely. Now using fancy words and lamenting like drama queens!!! Thousands are dying. No effective communication or containment measures. At least replace this guy with somebody who can communicate better… To say the least!

  2. This man needs to be fired. He made it worse. He told us travel bans were not needed and delayed calling it a pandemic which allowed it to spread. 😡He also needs to be held accountable

  3. Global pandemic is redundant . The word pandemic means global. Whereas, epidemic means local. Hence, covid-19 is now a pandemic crisis.

  4. This guy talk about the sickness something what bill gates allready knew or created…. do you know who is the number 2 sponsor of the who ?? Bill gates also bloomberg so please wake up this people are dangerous

  5. The virus is exposing man. I thought we were for equality and what not. If this really takes a turn for the worst do u think wealth status will matter more or less? Atheism is for the cowards afraid of the after life. So they play God and get you to think your value is based on how much materials, paper and plastic, such things which have a controlled distribution plan, you can collect. Or how well you can use your brain. You can argue the avg man has mental problems, from several insecurity, anxiety, depression etc. and most of these men are in power or seek it to keep others they envy under their boot. Because if everyone had a chance to show or express their "I.Q." alot more great gifts would shine and expose the Evol intent of the so called "elite".
    😂😂God is just waiting for ur moment with God. No belief, hope or payment exalts you from the truth. Judgment is coming, wether here on earth or at death. He's coming to you. No man can be immortal because no man is escaping. God has long as man exists to correct and tame evil. No rush. God's existence doesn't need the approval of man. Man needs the approval of God to exist.
    Woooooooooo! Who says Hip-Hop kills brain cells?

  6. Maybe he should go work with all the front line workers with no mask, no awareness of who is infectious. He has endangered the Police, the Paramedics, the shelters, the schools –the WHOLE WORLD, their Blood is on his hands!

  7. This man should be fired!!! He is very uneducated on viral diseases especially on viruses that are airborne! Where did he go for his education? He acted 2 months too late!!

  8. Director General Mr. Tedros, YOU HAVE FAILED AND ALSO DISQUALIFIED TO BE A CONTROL TOWER. IT'S TIME TO PUT EVERYTHING ON THE TABLE AND LEAVE YOUR SPOT.

    I believe the public should know if anyone individual who in the past contracted SARS come down and presented with SARS CO V 2, the disease being called COVID19? If so is this a mutation??? I would like to have that question answered otherwise others will ask the very same question???

    Is it evolving??? As the WHO you have the ability to make the action to nations of upmost importance

  12. "When E.F. HUTTON talks, people listen"….. Do you know the "REAL" man's name they are referring too as [E.F. HUTTON] ? When HE talked, people listened!

  13. Thank you for your newest information but we already knew it two moths ago and we know you are an advocate of CHO=China, not WHO.

  14. how did they rang the alarm bell loud and clear when they failed to contain the virus outbreak since Jan? Jeez, as if people forgot what they said in these few months. They kept saying oh it's not a big deal, do not overreact. Then now when things got so bad they couldnt cover it up. Oh yea, btw it is a pandemic now.

  15. Many people don't know that WHO has warned all other countries 2 month before about corona……it is your government failure or your government didn't take it seriously…..now these people blaming WHO for not declaring corona as pandemic early (when it was limited to China)…….U can't just declare pandemic when disease only limited to one country or few country from same region ( as it can be controlled easily but other countries government didn't take serious measure back when corona was present only in china. ) ………..first know what is pandemic disease nd when to declare it………..so STOP blaming WHO nd blame your government who didn't take serious measure when WHO has warned u…

  16. We will be saying the same thing about climate change a few years from now, when it is already too late. The bells have already been rung loud and clear, but we are all sleeping. Because money is more important. Money, money, money, money. Will money save us, dear corrupt leaders, dear oil and drug companies, when we are all drowning, when we are all infected? In a time of crisis, we need to come together. We need fundamental change. We need swift action, government action, deep intervention on a mass scale. The good-will of the market will not save us. Scientists are screaming that our house, earth, is burning; how long will we sleep and say, alarmists, you exaggerate, it's a conspiracy, a socialist conspiracy to deprive us of our dear need to shop and to spend and to consume like there's no tomorrow? Corona should be a humble reminder that we are not invincible, all-powerful masters of nature, that a nano-sized non-living entity can upset our entire civilization. I keep thinking how the current panic and the unstoppable spread of the virus is a taster of what we will experience as a species soon, when the hurricanes and floods and fires are more and more frequent, when the rich and powerful finally get a slap in the face and believe this is happening. But by then it will be too late.
