The world needs to “wake up and consider this foe infection as open foe number one,” Tedros cautioned.

“It’s the most exceedingly awful foe you can envision.”
Up until this point, the infection has contaminated more than 45,000 individuals around the world — albeit 99 percent of the cases have happened inside China, and just two fatalities have been accounted for outside the Chinese territory.
In any case, Tedros said it was “disturbing” that individual to-individual transmissions to individuals with no movement history to China had as of late showed up in France and Britain.
