World Health Organization declares coronavirus a pandemic

4개월 전

The World Health Organization has said that the spread of Covid-19 around the world has reached the stage where it can be described as a pandemic.

At Wednesday’s daily coronavirus briefing WHO director-general, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, revealed that there are now more than 118,000 cases in 114 countries around the world, and 4,291 people have lost their lives due to the disease.

“Pandemic is not a word to use lightly or carelessly. It is a word that, if misused, can cause unreasonable fear, or unjustified acceptance that the fight is over, leading to unnecessary suffering and death,” the director-general said.

“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.”

Tedros said that some countries are struggling to tackle the spread of the Covid-19 illness due to a lack of capacity but others are struggling because of a lack of resolve.

The health chief said that swift action from authorities can prevent larger clusters of cases and community transmission and even if they fail to do so “they can turn the tide”.

May Putin the Great be recognized for the Man with his crew (maybe less lavrov) to have said FUCK OFF and SHUT THE FUCK OFF to those Globalized Clepto childrapists aristocrats and gone his own way !

Putin the great is laying the foundation for reaching the stars and beyond and of course to guarante : the future belongs to us.

However I ain't the avg Putin Groopie ! wait on me if senile and I want the right to grow my own weed in my lovely datcha (that I will have no right to commercialized) maybe 100 plants?

give us that, and we will make Russia even greater !

Stay firm and don't let those subhumans ever take control of Russia ever again !

by war (ie burning their homes and children) if necessary !

(edit the IRS should investigate all those fuckers at the WHO... they are just shitholers / thirdworlders ready to sell the world down the sewer for their own children to have access to the west and by this making the west a little bit more like their feudal hell each day).


They did not have to change it, because they effectively ignored it.
