WHO Declares COVID-19 “Pandemic”; European Countries & Iran Adopt Aggressive Measures To Contain Growing Threat Health Policy Watch "As cases of COVID-19 surpassed 120,000 around the world, the World Health Organization on Wednesday declared a pandemic – a move the organization stressed was intended to “trigger” even more aggressive action from governments against the virus rather than surrender to its rapid spread. In line with current trends, numbers of COVID-19 cases, deaths and number of affected countries will “climb even higher,” Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus warned on Wednesday, before they decline."
