WHO Raises Coronavirus Threat Assessment to its Highest Level: ‘Wake up. Get Ready - This Virus May Be on its Way’

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


This may be a medical crisis without a foreseeable end.  Like their Chinese counterparts; U.S. medical healthcare workers will have to work endless hours around the clock to slow the rates of infections and to save lives.

World Health Organization officials said Friday they are increasing the risk assessment of the coronavirus, which has spread to at least 49 countries in a matter of weeks, to “very high” at a global level. “We are on the highest level of alert or highest level of risk assessment in terms of spread and in terms of impact,” said Dr. Mike Ryan, executive director of WHO’s health emergencies program. The group isn’t trying to alarm or scare people, he said. “This is a reality check for every government on the planet: Wake up. Get ready. This virus may be on its way and you need to be ready. You have a duty to your citizens; you have a duty to the world to be ready.” The world can still avoid “the worst of it,” but the increased risk assessment means the WHO’s “level of concern is at its highest,” he said at a press conference at WHO headquarters in Geneva.

World leaders still have a chance to contain the virus within their borders, Ryan said. “To wait, to be complacent to be caught unawares at this point, it’s really not much of an excuse.” Outside China as of Friday morning, 4,351 cases across at least 48 countries have been confirmed, including 67 deaths, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said. About two dozen countries have reported only one case. He said most cases of COVID-19 can still be traced to known contacts or clusters of cases and there isn’t any “evidence as yet that the virus is spreading freely in communities.” That’s one reason why WHO hasn’t declared the outbreak a pandemic, Tedros said. Denmark, Estonia, Lithuania, Netherlands and Nigeria all reported their first cases on Thursday, Tedros said. All these cases have links to Italy, he added.

 Tedros reiterated that the virus could still turn into a pandemic. He urged against fear and panic, adding, “our greatest enemy right now is not the virus itself. It’s fear, rumors and stigma.” On Wednesday, WHO officials said the number of new COVID-19 cases outside China exceeded those inside the country for the first time. Tedros said Thursday that countries must act “swiftly” and “aggressively” to contain the virus. “With the right measures, it can be contained,” he said at the time, adding countries should begin thinking about whether they have proper isolation units, medical supplies and other vital equipment. Ryan told reporters that containing the virus and interrupting transmission give officials an opportunity to stop the virus. “But what it’s clearly doing as you’ve seen in China and Singapore, it’s slowing the virus down and allowing us to get ready to prepare,” he said. –MSNBC

3rd U.S. mystery infection – How are they getting infected? A northwest Oregon resident has tested positive for coronavirus with no known history of travel to countries severely affected by the outbreak and no known contact with infected individuals, state health officials said Friday. The case, in Washington County, marks the third case of unknown origin in the United States and indicates that the virus is spreading. It is also the first coronavirus case in Oregon. The adult patient, whose age and gender were not disclosed, is at Kaiser Permanente Westside Medical Center in Hillsboro, officials said.

Oregon Health Authority Director Patrick Allen said the case is considered “presumptive” while the state awaits confirmation of test results from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The patient was recently at a local elementary school, Allen said. Earlier Friday, health officials in Santa Clara County, Calif., said a 65-year-old resident also had a case of coronavirus with unknown origin — becoming the second U.S. case of community transmission. The nation’s first community-transmission patient was a woman in Solano County, about 90 miles away. –Washington Post

      Anyway some TRUTH, FACTS & ACTUAL GENUINE USEFUL INFO

      THE TRUTH IS >>> The Caronavirus PlayBook Is Already Written.

      It’s just a repeat of the H1N1 Swine Flu (SARS, MERS, BIRD FLU, EBOLA)
      - Fake Propaganda Virus Playbook
      Just heading into – Chapter 2.

      At The End Of 18 months of Swine Flu – Fear Porn

      - The World Health Organisation WHO declared the pandemic over – & during the >>> 18 months had killed JUST ..18,500 people globally
      - averaging the figures of lab confirmed deaths – from the 214 countries that report to the W.H.O

      >>>> That averages out at LESS THAN 90 (as in Ninety) Swine Flu Deaths Per Country
      In Hindsight The 18 months of relenless fear porn fake propaganda headlines, >>> were over ……an insignificant, irrelevant virus
      ………………………………………………
      QUOTE 6 August 2010 – As of 1 August 2010, worldwide more than 214 countries and overseas territories or communities have reported laboratory confirmed cases …. of pandemic influenza H1N1 2009, including over >>> 18449 deaths.
      LINK TO W.H.O. OFFICIAL WEBSITE Confirmation Of Above FACT !! https://www.who.int/csr/don/2010_08_06/en/

      And – This Will Be A Repeat.
      ……………………………………..

      Caronavirus Took 2 Months To Kill 2,400 (ie a TINY 40 Per Day)
      - of old, sick, frail, immuno-compromised and already on their last legs Chinese

      - Up to 95% of Infected – Have Symptoms – So Mild – They Won’t Even Notice
      - and in most countries – hasn’t even reached a THOUSAND infected

      Regular Annual Flu – Kills 88,000 …Chinese per year
      7 Million Chinese… Die Of All Causes Per Year
      -vs- Caronavirus – UNDER 3,000 !!!

      Read the facts – Engage Brain & Common Sense – It’s an insignificant irrelevance – the rest is Rinse & Repeat VIRAL FEAR PORN
