World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said, “We’re concerned about the number of cases with no clear epidemiological link such as travel history to China or contact with a confirmed case.”

Speaking today (21 Feb) in Geneva, Tedros told reporters, “Apart from the Diamond Princess cruise ship, the Republic of Korea now has the most cases outside China, and we’re working closely with the government to fully understand the transmission dynamics that led to this increase.”

He added, “We’re also concerned about the increase in cases in the Islamic Republic of Iran, where that are now 18 cases and four deaths in the last, in just the past two days.”

Also speaking to reporters, WHO’s Jaouad Mahjour said, “The case in Lebanon was detected in the airport because they were screening the symptomatic cases coming from Iran, and this is how this case was, is detected. And the Regional Office in Cairo is now in contact with two countries to assess the situation first and to evaluate what is the kind of technical assistance that these two countries may need, and we are ready to provide this technical assistance.”

WHO’s Director for Global Infectious Hazard Preparedness Dr Sylvie Briand said, “What is really important in epidemiology when you observe an epidemic is to remember that surveillance or monitoring of the disease aims at taking the best possible decision. And so it’s really numbers for action and not numbers for numbers. And so as long as we understand how things are counted and what the numbers include, then it helps us to make the best possible decision to protect the health of the people.”

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said, “So what I believe is the window of opportunity is still there, but we’re our window of opportunities, is narrowing, I would put it that way. And that’s why we called the international community to act. And that’s why I explained yesterday, although we are asking for, you know, the international community to act quickly, including the financing, that’s not what we see.”

Sylvie Briand added, “Indeed we see that the situation is there is evolving. Not only the number of cases is increasing, but also we see different patterns of transmission in different

    Again with the vague phrase “Window of opportunity.”

    I don’t know what that means in concrete terms for each country. When they are asked about anything we can do as societies, individuals or governments – they just say that the response should be proportional. Is proportional closing down intercontinental travel? Closing schools, colleges, public gatherings? Is it declaring a rationing of food and supplies? Should we be staying at home and not visiting one another? Should governments be building prefab hospital units as isolation hospitals and ICUs?

    I want to hear and see actual proof that hospitals, GPs, care workers, care home staff are being briefed on this and what the proposed response is when a hospital gets 10% of its local population needing intensive care within a few weeks.

    I never see care workers in the community using face masks when they care for the elderly. They can be very slap dash about the risks of droplet infection for elderly people. And this infection is airborne.

    Does WHO stand for Worst Health Organization? Because they seem to be more worried about money and the stock market than actually giving citizens any real helpful information! They lost the “window of opportunity “ when they failed to stop travel weeks ago! How many cases would there be outside of China if travel was halted immediately! People are dying because of their incompetence!

    COMPARISON: FLU vs SARS vs COVID-19

    FLU –
    The World Health Organization estimates that worldwide, annual influenza epidemics result in about 3-5 million cases of severe illness and about 250,000 to 500,000 deaths.

    7.7 billion / 5 million severe illness = 0.000649 complication rate. COVID-19 complication rate is 0.17 or up to 261.8 times more than flu.
    7.7 billion / 500,000 deaths = 0.00649 mortality rate. COVID-19 mortality rate is 0.03299 or up to 508 times more than the flu.
    Considering everybody you know, has caught the flu at least once in their lives.. How many people do you personally know has COVID-19? What is the impact once they are both given the time to circulate at comparable levels? Still early days indeed.
    In the US, flu cases for the 2019-20 US season has topped 22 million whilst only having 35 confirmed cases of COVID-19. This is important to understand current statistics will be irrelevant and the sample size for COVID-19 is currently too small to fully appreciate the real potential impact.

    COVID-19 –
    TRANSMISSABILITY – Covid-19 is as transmissible as the flu with added concerns of asymptomatic spread/airborne transmission/surface transmission/sewerage transmission.
    MORTALITY RATE – 79,364 confirmed / 2619 deaths = 0.03299 mortality rate as at 24/02/2020.
    In less than 2 months, COVID-19 has infected almost 10x more people than SARS ever did in its entire 9 months.
    The big missing factor is FLU is well established and made it’s rounds worldwide, vaccines are available and most do not require medical attention when diagnosed. Can we say the same for COVID-19?

    SARS –
    8096 confirmed / 774 deaths = 0.09561% mortality rate.
    Containment was easy in comparison as it did NOT have concerns of asymptomatic spread (show illness before transmissible).
    SARS is part of the same family of Coronaviruses’ as COVID-19.
    INFLUENZA is a completely different virus altogether.

    TLDR:
    COVID-19 is less deadly than SARS, more deadly than the FLU, more transmissible than SARS, and comparably as transmissible as the FLU.

    Only reason i can think of for WHO's downplaying this virus, is that the bigger this virus grows, the more money they can make.

    Only people we can find out if the number of deaths reducing or not are from the real good honest doctors, nurses and crematorium workers/managers. They need to SPEAK out! And sooner or later THEY WILL! BECAUSE GOOD PEOPLE CAN NOT LIE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. keeping a lie will eat them alive in the long run!!! ps; They can cover their faces, change their voices so no on will recognise them.

    China was running 🏃 around trying to colonize the entire planet and it backfired on them. Now they have to take care of their own country. The poor people in China have become victims of a greedy government who thought that they would be replace the beast with two horns aka the US/UK ( the most powerful duel world power inter world ) but the Bible book of revelations states that “NO OTHER COUNTRY WILL TAKE OVER TAKE THE USA/UK because they are the last man made world power ever to rule over mankind again. This miscalculation by China was a grave mistake. Now the UN aka “Wild Beast” of the Bible will have to mobilize every country to fight this virus. In the end, God’s will shall be accomplished the result will be the destruction of the world empire of false religion. ( Babylon the great )

    I am asking for TOTAL EXCLUSION from any place of work in the institutions of BASIC PUBLIC PROVIDERS OF WATER, ELECTRICITY, GAS, CHANNELS, INTERNET, of any person who has studies outside of present European Union, because, for example, the international organisation of ROTHSCHILD, including using gipsies criminal organisations, used and are using, deep secret software codes and high inteligence services hackers, to erase persons like me, from any identity and from any real contact.
    I am also special asking for TOTAL INTERDICTION of Romanian secret services from any information about me, because all Romanian secret service were used and are used, to special attacks against me.
    I again accuse ENTIRE WESTERN WORLD of high professional massive MASSACRE against the romanian nation, especially by the use of percentages of minerals in water and air, which act as WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION ON SPECIAL TARGETED PEOPLES.
    THE SAME IS HAPPENING TO CHINA, AND WILL HAPPEN TO ENTIRE ASIA, AFRICA AND SOUTH AMERICA.
    WASHINGTON, LONDON AND ISRAEL, PROVIDED SUCH IMPOSSIBLE TO DETECT KNOWLEDGE OF DOLENT SLOWLY MASSACRE, TO ROMANIAN CORRUPTED.
    THEY ARE DOING THE SAME AGAINST CHINA NOW, AND THEY WILL DO AGAINST INDIA, RUSSIA, EUROPE, AFRICA, ETC.

    I do not think the calculated data they get or have & eventually report to the public is accurate enough nor current enough to trust. How can anyone analyze data, make determinations & projections when the statistical data they have is so 'uncertain' to say the least. Already obvious to everyone, the window IS closing just based on the statistics WHO already does have. Scientists say little to nothing seems 'certain' about the behavior of this virus, not its origin spread, not its ability to spread, number of days to incubate, false positives, false negatives, reinfection, does it mutate, eventual deaths; what does identifying an actual pandemic exist of; cuz the only thing we know for certain is this is a new virus, a deadly virus with high method of transmission & spread, with a potential 20% severity rate THAT means most hospitals will NOT be equipted to monitor & treat and THAT means HIGHER death rates.
    Under the varied circumstances hindering & inhibiting countries calculatiing & also reporting, we MUST ASSUME MANY IF NOT MOST CASES & DEATHS even…are going undetected/unreported. Do you REALLY want to control the spread of a virus… or do you just want to control the result it can have on world economy?
    ***
    Regarding curious on what "window of opportunity" is about COVID-19: I can try for you, but I am not an authority. To my knowledge the term'window of opportunity' is/was an early period of time to stop this COVID-19 from becoming a PANDEMIC (country to country epidemics) and do so by taking necessary precautions to slow down the spread which must remain at or below a contagious value of 1-R naught… data shows we have not been able to contain it & it is well over 2-R naught … it means for each infected case, 2 more are infected. Many areas have shown as high as 6-R naught. Over the 1-R naught with so many countries already affected, it probably cannot be stopped. That window to stop it has already passed in many peoples' opinion… & any window of time we have to 'slow' it's spread down now, before it can be stopped, is certainly hindered by many factors. Foremost, people must take it serious & respond seriousy… & I don't see that happening bcuz of officials & others falsely claiming that regular flu is worse… & The WHO also pretending… I mean, they won't even call it a PANDEMIC yet… when they do, no doubt, the window will be CLOSED. The WINDOW is basically a time of action & preparedness that can make a difference. Anyway… that has been my take on it all. Hope I remembered it & got it straight & hope that helps you.
    My sources are many, but particularly I daily follow reports from Doctors John Campbell, Chris Markenson & Matt Seheult, also FOX News & The WHO.

    When china didn't do much to stop the spread it resulted in 10s of thousands to be infected and 1000s to dying. Why wait till that happens across the world. Why are you waiting for it become a pandemic before significant measures are taken.
