The World Health Organization (WHO) has finally labeled the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus disease (COVID-19) a pandemic.
A pandemic is defined as a disease that is spreading in more nations globally at the same time.
The labeling comes as more deaths and infection rates are recorded globally.
Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus , WHO boss, has indicated that the number of cases outside China had increased 13-fold over the past two weeks.
He expressed deep concern by “alarming levels of inaction” over the virus.
