The World Health Organization (WHO) said that the coronavirus causing COVID-19 can already be defined as a “pandemic”, after the number of affected cases outside China has multiplied by 13 in two weeks and in that period the affected countries have tripled.
“The WHO estimates that COVID-19 can be characterized as a pandemic,” said WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. “We can expect the number of cases, deaths and affected countries to increase” in the coming days and weeks, he added.
Then he maintained that the WHO was evaluating the sprout all day. “We are deeply concerned about both the alarming levels of spread and severity, and the alarming levels of inaction,” he stressed.
The disease has already reached at least 120 countries and threatens less developed health systems. Although the number of infections began to decline in China, the country where the outbreak originated, those infected are on the rise on several continents and the total figure far exceeds 100,000.
Governments discuss taking more drastic measures to stop the advance of the strain, which although it does not have a high mortality rate, presents difficulties for an early detection that helps to stop the propagation.
In Latin America, the advance of the disease alerted the governments of the region since they are already 14 countries those who reported confirmed cases. Brazil It is the one that has been most infected so far (34) but does not register deaths, as if it happened in Argentina and Panama (one deceased in each country). In total there are 144 infected people throughout Latin America.
So far, it has already killed more than 1,100 people outside mainland Chinal, where the outbreak has already claimed more than 3,100 fatalities.
