"In the past two weeks, the number of cases of #COVID19 outside has increased 13-fold & the number of affected countries has tripled.
There are now more than 118,000 cases in 114 countries, & 4,291 people have lost their lives"-@DrTedros#coronavirus
"Thousands more are fighting for their lives in hospitals.
In the days and weeks ahead, we expect to see the number of #COVID19 cases, the number of deaths, and the number of affected countries climb even higher"-@DrTedros#coronavirus
"Pandemic is not a word to use lightly or carelessly. It is a word that, if misused, can cause unreasonable fear, or unjustified acceptance that the fight is over, leading to unnecessary suffering and death"-@DrTedros#COVID19#coronavirus
"Describing the situation as a pandemic does not change WHO’s assessment of the threat posed by this #coronavirus. It doesn’t change what WHO is doing, and it doesn’t change what countries should do"-@DrTedros#COVID19
"We have never before seen a pandemic sparked by a #coronavirus.
And we have never before seen a pandemic that can be controlled at the same time.
WHO has been in full response mode since we were notified of the first cases"-@DrTedros#COVID19
"Of the 118,000 #COVID19 cases reported globally in 114 countries, more than 90 percent of cases are in just four countries, and two of those – and - have significantly declining epidemics"-@DrTedros#coronavirus
"81 countries have not reported any #COVID19 cases, and 57 countries have reported 10 cases or less.
We cannot say this loudly enough, or clearly enough, or often enough: all countries can still change the course of this pandemic"-@DrTedros#coronavirus
"If countries detect, test, treat, isolate, trace, and mobilize their people in the response, those with a handful of #COVID19 cases can prevent those cases becoming clusters, and those clusters becoming community transmission"-@DrTedros#coronavirus
“Even those countries with community transmission or large clusters can turn the tide on this #coronavirus.
Several countries have demonstrated that this virus can be suppressed and controlled.”-@DrTedros#COVID19
"We are grateful for the measures being taken in , and to slow the virus and control their #COVID19 epidemics.
We know that these measures are taking a heavy toll on societies and economies, just as they did in "-@DrTedros#coronavirus
"I have said from the beginning that countries must take a whole-of-government, whole-of-society approach, built around a comprehensive strategy to prevent infections, save lives and minimize impact"-@DrTedros#COVID19#coronavirus
"I remind all countries that we are calling on you to (1):
-activate & scale up your emergency response mechanisms
-communicate with your people about the risks & how they can protect themselves
-find, isolate, test & treat every #COVID19 case & trace every contact"-@DrTedros
"There’s been so much attention on one word.
Let me give you some other words that matter much more, & that are much more actionable:
And most of all, People"-@DrTedros#COVID19#coronavirus
