Global COVID-19 cases pass 90,000


The head of the World Health Organization (WHO) said that public health officials are operating in "uncharted territory" as they combat the spread of the novel coronavirus, which has infected quite 90,000 people across 73 countries and territories as of Monday evening.

The virus has spread to each continent except Antarctica since it absolutely was first identified in December last year within the central Chinese city of Wuhan. Medical workers are now battling deadly outbreak clusters in South Korea, Iran and Italy, while other countries are working furiously to avoid an analogous fate by readying public health authorities, alerting their citizens and enacting travel restrictions to affected areas.

To date, there are 172 deaths reported outside Asian country, raising the worldwide toll to three,115.

Several nations that have seen cases are setting up place measures to limit the virus' spread: closing schools, encouraging remote work and canceling or scaling back public events, just to call some.

The WHO has to date held off on classifying the incident as a world pandemic, but has warned it's a break within the near future.

"We haven't before seen a respiratory pathogen that's capable of community transmission, but which might even be contained with the proper measures," said Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the director-general of the worldwide health watchdog.
Investors are bracing for the likelihood that the spread of COVID-19, because the virus is formally known, could throw the worldwide economy into recession. Its spread in China, the world's second-biggest economy and a serious manufacturer, was followed by factory closures that severely impacted global supply chains.

At least 80,151 cases are identified in Asian country so far, killing 2,943 people.
However, the economic effects of the virus now transcend China, because the virus is impacting business operations and consumer behavior worldwide. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development warned Monday that the virus plunged the globe economy into its worst downturn since the 2009 global financial crisis which growth may be cut in half if the outbreak continues unabated.

Major clusters outside ChinaCases outside Asian country appear to be spreading faster than inside, because the outbreak shows signs of stabilizing in parts of the country, following weeks of restrictions and emergency measures. The WHO's Ghebreyesus said on Monday that "in the last 24 hours, there have been almost ninefold more COVID-19 cases reported outside China than inside."
According to China's National Health Commission (NHC) confirmed cases in Asian country increased by 125 Monday. of these cases, 114 were in Hubei, of which Wuhan is that the city.

China's two most populous cities, Shanghai and Beijing, have enforced quarantines for folks that recently visited countries with significant outbreaks.
South Korea, Iran and Italy face the foremost severe outbreaks excluding Asian country. Authorities in Seoul said Tuesday that quite 4,800 infections had been identified, killing 28 people. Italian officials have reported a minimum of 1,835 infected patients and 52 deaths. And Iran has announced a minimum of 2,336 cases and 77 deaths -- including an adviser to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Several of Iran's neighbors have taken steps to avoid the spread, including closing borders with the country.

Authorities in Europe are taking early precautions. Several governments are preventing large gatherings of individuals so as to curb community transmission, still as closing public spaces just like the Louvre in Paris and Milan's La Scala opera. Crowded events just like the Paris half-marathon are canceled. And one French official advised against a long-time French greeting of two kisses on the cheek to avoid close physical contact.

The European Union's alert level for the novel coronavirus has been raised from moderate to high, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said at a Monday press conference. There are quite 2,000 confirmed cases within the EU, with the majority of the outbreak happening in Italy.

The us has also seen an uptick in cases, with quite 100 infections now identified after a surge of recent patients Washington state, where six people are killed. Four of the folks that died were residents of a medical care facility in Kirkland, in suburban Seattle, eliciting concerns that the virus may have spread within Washington in recent days or weeks. Washington remains the sole state within the US where the spread of the virus has resulted in fatalities.

The new cases have prompted private companies to require their own proactive measures. Twitter is asking its employees to figure from home, Carnival Cruise lines is changing a number of its itineraries and therefore the NBA is asking its players to avoid taking items from fans to autograph and offer strangers fist-bumps rather than high-fives.

However, federal public health authorities have issued several needs calm. US Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams said the govt. "knew this was coming."
"Caution is acceptable. Preparedness is acceptable. Panic isn't," he said.
President Donald Trump said Monday he was still considering additional travel restrictions from countries with rampant coronavirus outbreaks. vp Mike Pence, who was appointed to the top of President Trump's coronavirus task force, said new travel advisories are put in situ for Italy and South Korea, and anyone traveling to the us on a flight from Italy and South Korea will receive multiple screenings before arriving within the us.

But he also advised Americans that the virus doesn't pose a serious threat to them.

"Let's be clear: the chance to the American people of the coronavirus remains low, per all of the experts that we are working with across the govt.," Pence said.
