Covid-19 Pandemic: 2020 Coronavirus outbreak

The WHO declaration

Tuesday Feb 25, 2020
Geneva, Switzerland

On 25 February, the WHO declared that "the world should do more to prepare for a possible coronavirus pandemic," stating that while it was still too early to call it a pandemic, countries should nonetheless be "in a phase of preparedness." In response to a developing case of the outbreak of the coronavirus in Iran, the WHO has sent a Joint Mission Team there on the same day to assess the situation in the country.
