WHO declares COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak a global pandemic based on alarming levels of spread and severity.


Supplemental Info:

WHO defines a “pandemic” as an epidemic of infectious disease occurring on a scale crossing international boundaries and affecting a large number of people.


In today’s press briefing, WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus says the situation will worsen.

“We expect to see the number of cases, the number of deaths, and the number of affected countries climb even higher.”

“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.”


WA Gov Inslee bans ALL gatherings of more than 250 ppl in Snohomish, King and Pierce Cos through March due to COVID-19. Could be expanded in time & scope as req..
