On Tuesday, the World Health Organization revealed that the number of new cases outside China exceeded in many new coronavirus infection cases. The number of cases in China was 412, while the count in the remainder of the world is 459.
WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Wednesday, “The sudden increase of cases in Italy, the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Republic of Korea is profoundly concerning.”
As the world attempted to stop the quick spreading infection outside China, where the epidemic began, nations around the globe are avoiding potential risk by scrubbing everything from cash to transports, army bases were on high alert, and quarantines were upheld.
The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) disease is spreading rapidly and has affected numerous countries around the globe.
Brazil affirms the emergence of Latin America’s first case. In Europe, where Spain, Germany, and France also reported, around 440 instances of developing coronavirus have been reported. In the Middle East, coronavirus has spread in Bahrain, Kuwait, and Iraq, and South Korea is fighting a mass flare-up in 2.5 million populated city of Daegu. In the United States, 60 cases of coronavirus have been reported. The U.S. affirmed another instance of coronavirus disease in California that could be the prime example of the infection spreading in a U.S. community. The patient in California was not known to have traveled outside the country or be associated with an infected patient. India has three confirmed cases of coronavirus in the state of Kerela. India is checking the new coronavirus flare-up at the highest level to forestall a pandemic by screening at different ports of passage and keeping a tab on 15,000 travelers who have come from abroad, says the Health Ministry of India.
WHO is working closely with international experts, governments to expand research on this novel virus rapidly, and to track the spread of the virus, and to give counsel to nations and people on measures to secure the wellbeing and forestall the new epidemic.
