  • There are Confirmed COVID-19 Cases in more than 50 Countries

Highest level of alert: The World Health Organization increased the global risk from the outbreak from high to very high.

The existing data do not support the concept of a pandemic so far, he said, highlighting that China has clearly shown that it is not necessarily the natural outcome of COVID-19 epidemic if indispensable responses are made quickly. As a new coronavirus spreads quickly around the world, US health officials say they are "aggressively" assessing how long it can survive on surfaces to better understand the risk of transmission.

"This is a reality check for every government on the planet: Wake up, get ready", Ryan said. Though the number of new cases is beginning to ease inside of China, new clusters are fast expanding elsewhere, with rising infection rates in South Korea, Iran and Italy.

Global spread: The total number of confirmed cases now stands at more than 84,000, with more than 5,000 cases outside of mainland China.

More than 2,900 people have died and over 85,000 have been infected worldwide since it emerged apparently from an animal market in the central Chinese city of Wuhan in December.

Some of the new countries announcing cases include Nigeria and Mexico.

The Union health ministry has advised Indians to refrain from non-essential travel to South Korea, Iran and Italy. The country says 13 people have died.

"The important big take-home message is that this is probably a small proportion of the transmission of respiratory viruses", said Dr. Timothy Brewer, professor of epidemiology and medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Tedros also said early Friday that China had reported just 329 cases in the past 24 hours - the lowest rate in more than a month for the country whose Hubei province, where Wuhan is located, had been the center of the outbreak.

The agency said there is likely a very low risk of spread from products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks at ambient temperatures.

"Our greatest enemy is not the virus itself, it's fear, rumours and stigma and our greatest assets are facts, reason and solidarity", he said.

The flu-like disease, which originated in China's central city of Wuhan, has infected more than 78,800 people and killed nearly 2,800 in mainland China, while spreading to more than 50 other countries including Japan. In the United States, 62 people are recorded to have contracted the disease, which is related to other epidemic respiratory diseases like severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) but also the common cold.
