The World Health Organisation has declared COVID19 a global pandemic.
Coronavirus which was unknown to health officials worldwide just three months ago has rapidly spread to more than 120 thousand people around the world.
According to the World Health Organisation, the number of cases outside China has increased thirteen fold in the past two weeks.
And in the days and weeks ahead the number of cases, deaths and the number of affected countries is expected to climb even higher.
The last time WHO declared a pandemic was during the 2009 H1N1 swine flu outbreak.
WHO raised it’s risk assessment level on COVID19 to it’s highest level of alert last month.
