Coronovirus not yet a global health emergency: WHO

I am not declaring a public health emergency of international concern today," WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told reporters after a two-day emergency meeting in Geneva on the virus.

He stressed though that the decision to hold off on issuing the declaration used for the gravest epidemics "should not be taken as a sign that WHO does not think the situation is serious."
"This is an emergency in China, but it has not yet become a global health emergency," he told reporters.
