The World Health Organization’s (WHO) director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Friday that Europe had now become the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak, with more daily cases being reported than at the height of the outbreak in China, where the virus first began. He added that more than 123,000 cases had been reported, with 5,000 deaths.

Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove said that the timing of when the COVID-19 virus would peak globally was not easy to predict, however the trajectory of the coronavirus in each country would depend on how they respond and how they react to their first cases. She also said that the timing of the virus peaking in countries dealing with independent clusters would depend on how they look for the chains of transmission within the clusters.

Tedros also announced anyone could now donate to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, saying they were originally relying on governmental donations, but now the general public can also contribute. He said this would help with co-ordination to combat the virus, purchase more medical equipment, and invest in research and development.

  1. The novel coronavirus outbreak can not be a problem for last, if we pray together. us Ethiopian social distancing not possible rather eating garlic, ginger, using honey will also protect from being infected, so that people can use all the necessary intervention as mentioned by our WHO leader.

  2. Yall already dropped the ball not calling it a pandemic after the months it was in China so yall are really really really USELESS!!!

  3. This is not world's END. It's just a warning from the nature, "STOP KILLING ANIMALS" for your hunger!
    Try to be vegetarian, if you don't want to see a new virus like CORONA!

  4. WHO in feb: Everyone needs to calm down. We have everything in control. WHO in march: Corona Virus is out of control. Countries need to take their own action to control this PANDAmic. Run for your lives and don’t blame WHO.

  5. 26:55 Absolutely

    Michael Ryan when answering, please look him into his eyes (Tedros) and say all those things you've just said. Also say, how much of a FXXX-ING mess for being a mouthpiece for communist loving China. Taiwan model have proven to be most effective by having early warning system & act quickly, yet WHO doesn't even list Taiwan in their map.
    WHO should be neutral, remember that

  6. The politics of death is every why who and usa not helping iran ….if not wanna help remove restriction or sanction from iran …..

  7. Isnt it possible that we inject weakened corona in a newborn child and when his immune system release antibodies and memory cells for destroying it. when it is destroyed then we can use these memory cells and antibodies as a vaccine for treatment of corona

  8. Hey, the WHO doesn't have the right to stop the planes do you actually think the UN is above any country's sovereign?? The uneducated level of youtube, Instagram and Twitter are making me sick. Go check quora, ok guys? No matter u are with or not with the WHO. That is the real people with sanity think about the situation all over the world. The comments are making me feel sicker than the virus situation currently in LA. A totalitarian government definitely serves this situation better than a democratic country aka nazi Germany at WWII. China is treating this situation as a war. I am a college student at Caltech, planing for enlisting in the US navy, born in Shanghai. My aunt is an Infectious disease doctor in Shanghai currently fighting against this situation in Wuhan under the CCP strongly recommendation. I can't stand letting you guys doing nothing other than bullshitting about how the Chinese people are responsible for this. When the Spanish flu came along did anyone blames the American government and our military? When the Ebola came along did anyone blames the Africans in general? Empathy guys show respect to those fighting for this situation. May God bless the world with his grace. May the fallen find glory in thy name.

  9. W H O👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻🇨🇳👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻

  10. This guy should resign and his bank account should be checked.. If he does his job when virus started in China, it won’t spread like this. But he told everyone that Chinese gov is doing great job. . Hahahaha WHO stands for Wuhan Health Organization. Hahaha

  11. Westerners used to called all Asean walk by a Corona Virus. They really show their true colors narrrow minded and low infomation
    educated, eventhough it originate from China. Now all asean dont want to get close to Westerner people due to their low sanitary way of life.
