The World Health Organization, WHO, warned that the Coronavirus has the potential to reach every country on the planet.
The WHO made the statement Friday, following an incessant rise in new cases of the virus in more countries.
Recall that Nigeria confirmed its first case of the disease in Lagos, one of its largest cities.
Earlier, the Director-General of WHO, Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus, said the planet was at a tipping point.
“This virus has pandemic potential.
“We are actually in a very delicate situation in which the outbreak can go in any direction based on how we handle it,” he said.
Currently, more than 83,000 people in at least 53 countries have been confirmed carriers of the deadly disease.
Recall that the outbreak began in China in December 2019 and has been reported in several other countries subsequently.
