The WHO on Wednesday announced that the coronavirus can be considered a pandemic.
A pandemic is associated with the geographic spread and not its character. When a disease or an infection spreads worldwide, it is considered a pandemic.
The WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said that the organisation was "deeply concerned both by the alarming levels of spread and severity and by the alarming levels of inaction."
"Therefore, we made the assessment that COVID19 can be characterised as a pandemic," he added.
In India, the number of cases has risen to 73. The Indian government has suspended several visas and issued an advisory on travelling during the outbreak. It has also asked officials to look for locations to build quarantine units.
