The Covid-19 virus is on the verge of becoming a global pandemic because it has hit the worlds major democracies. The World Health Organization said on Thursday Italy, Iran, and South Korea are at “decisive” phase in dealing with the virus.
Dr Tedros from the WHO has urged governments to act swiftly and aggressively to contain COVID-19. He stated that the world is in a very delicate situation in which the outbreak can go in any direction based on how it is handled. “…This is a time for taking action to prevent infection and save lives now,” he said.
The major democracies of the world are unexpectedly facing internal transmissions, with less intervention by the police state to slow down the spread this is also hampered by the fact that major population centers like California have a shortage of testing kits. The state is already monitoring 8400 people for the virus.
South Korea’s and Japan’s responses to the virus have been far less severe than China’s, by means of China’s internal security forces they have been able to close down whole cities.
Japan wants its schools to close until April, and Korea delayed schools from starting for another week. Other nations like Iran now has 245 cases and 26 deaths, has closed schools and canceled its Friday prayers.
The average person who has died so far is most likely male, over the age of 70 who suffers from cardiovascular disease.
