The head of the WHO’s emergency programme said Iran, which has so far reported the most deaths outside of China, may be dealing with an outbreak that is worse than yet understood.
He also said discussions were being held with organisers about the fate of the Olympic games scheduled for July in Japan.
WHO Director General Tedros, Adhanom Ghebreyesus said;
No country should assume it won’t get cases, that would be a fatal mistake, quite literally.
And I even say if you take Italy, a member of the G7, it was really a surprise. So even many other developed countries you also see some surprises, should expect some surprises.
According to Tedros, epidemics in Iran, Italy and South Korea were at a “decisive point”: still marked by clusters of infections with some transmission in communities, but not yet by sustained community transmission.
This virus has pandemic potential.
This is not a time for fear. This is a time for taking action to prevent infection and save lives now.
According to him, U.S. President Donald Trump was right in suggesting hygienic measures similar to those to prevent flu, such as frequent hand washing.
