UN health agency chief, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has said “Whether we get it wrong or right is in our hands… every country must be ready for its first case, its first cluster, the first evidence of community transmission and for dealing with sustained community transmission…”

He further stated that “No country should assume it won’t get cases; that could be a fatal mistake, quite literally. This virus does not respect borders.”

WHO has also warned that all countries should do more to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

In the past 24 hours seven countries have reported cases for the first time, they are Brazil, Georgia, Greece, North Macedonia, Norway, Pakistan and Romania.

The WHO chief has stated that while the spread of the virus in Iran, Italy, and the Republic of Korea had indicated “what this virus is capable of”, it can be contained.
