The increase in corona infections in Italy, Iran and South Korea is “very worrying”, but the virus can still be contained and does not grow into a pandemic.
The chief of the UN (WHO) World Health Organization said so on Wednesday.
According to Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus should also be careful with the use of the word pandemic, a global epidemic.
There is a risk that the fear of corona will be unnecessarily and unjustly fueled.
Worldwide there are now 80,988 infections counted in 33 countries. 96.5 percent of the cases are in China.
According to the WHO, there is no reason to panic, according to European chef Hans Kluge. He reported that there is no effective medicine yet.
