World must prepare for possibility of COVID-19 pandemic: WHO

March 3, 2020

the World Health Organization is
continuing to insist that it’s too early to call the worldwide kovat 19 outbreak
a pandemic but it is stressing that countries should be in a phase of
preparedness for what might be around the corner our recent reports despite
the World Health Organization refrained from using the word pandemic to describe
the situation the UN health agencies chief says the koba 19 outbreak is at a
decisive point at a decisive point for the past two days the number of new
cases reported in the rest of the world has exceeded the number of new cases
reported from China our message continues to be that this virus has
pandemic potential and doubly sure is providing the tools to help every
country to prepare accordingly the term pandemic is used when an infectious
disease spreads easily from person to person in many parts of the world the
Cova 19 outbreak has so far infected people in 50 countries and territories
and more than 4,000 cases have been confirmed outside of mainland China
however the WHL continues to reiterate that it’s too early to call the outbreak
a pandemic but rather called on countries to be in a phase of
preparedness despite the rising number of cases in South Korea Italy and Iran
EWH Oh chief remains optimistic the virus can be contained the epidemics in
the Islamic Republic of Iran Italy and the Republic of Korea demonstrate what
this virus is capable of but this virus is not influenza with the right measures
it can be contained the director-general editor it’s not time to be scared but
time to take action to prevent infections and save lives isn’t a

    You allowed various experts and public figures to make the general public believe that this is no more a threat than a regular seasonal flu. So once it things spiral out of control on a global scale it's on you and your politics of communication with the general public and WHO credibility goes throuth the window.

    Call it pandemic when it’s too late… some countries (like mine) are not taking this serious. Like a ‘far from my bed show’. But I’m all prepped! I can isolate for a month ic needed and I will keep my kid from school without the permission of authorities!

    This is the math of this virus
    If 100 people have the virus
    Only 3% fatality rate (they say)
    97 still has it and may have 20 person recoverd. But this 20 is still not safe bcoz they can be again infected, so they will be again belong to the Infected…

    How will this pandemic end? 🤔

    How is this NOT considered a pandemic already when the "Novel" coronary meets their definition and has done so for more than a month now? Shouldn't we consider this "warning" to be a bit late in the game by now?

    At what point will the WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION decide that this new virus -covering 30 countries around the world and killing people in almost all of those countries- is a "PANDEMIC" and not simply an outbreak or epidemic?!?!?!?

    Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ everyone,

    With all the prayers to Jesus Christ my Lord and blessed redeemed, Jesus Christ has revealed to one of our sisters in the Lord about the solution to the COVID-19 virus. That solution is no other than LYSOL SPRAY, which has been in existence for ages. On the back of the spray, the writing shows that LYSOL kills Human Coronavirus. Even if you think it is not true, it is something worth trying just because of the fact that it appeared on the LYSOL spray content.This was very shocking to my mother and me when we watched the video. Jesus Christ has shown to have mercy upon us. Please share this message to everyone for those who read my post. This message needs to get out as soon as possible to cure our brothers and sisters around the world. GOD bless you.
