Dineklara na ng World Health Organization (WHO) na “pandemic” ang coronavirus (covid-19).
“We have never before seen a pandemic sparked by a coronavirus. And we have never before seen a pandemic that can be controlled at the same time… 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,” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.
Base sa ulat ng CNN Philippines, pumalo na sa 118,000 ang kumpirmadong kaso ng sakit sa buong mundo at 4,000 sa mga ito ay nasawi na.
“Several countries have demonstrated that this virus can be suppressed and controlled… WHO has been assessing this outbreak around the clock and we are deeply concerned both by the alarming levels of spread and severity, and by the alarming levels of inaction… We cannot say this loudly enough, or clearly enough, or often enough: All countries can still change the course of this pandemic,” ani Ghebreyesus.
Nag-alok naman na ang Russia sa Pilipinas ng libreng medisina na magagamit para gamutin ang inpeksyon na dala ng coronavirus.
“They’re ready to supply a highly efficient Russian medicine, which is highly efficient for treating patients infected by coronavirus… It’s largely used in China, for example, and the results are very, very encouraging, are very positive… It’s not a trade deal. It is a donation, a helping hand to our Filipino partners… It’s offered as a donation just to extend the hand of help to our Filipino partners, so now this offer is under consideration in Manila,” sabi ni Russian Ambassador Igor Anatolyevich Khovaev.
Ang ibig sabihin ng Pandemic ay ang malawakang pagkalat ng isang bagong sakit. Narito pa po ang isang video kung saan ipinapaliwanag kung ano ba ang salitang pandemic.
